New Projects 2016 for Shapes of Things!

Here at Shapes, we have had a fantastic 2015 and we are very excited for our new projects 2016!

We are very excited to announce “Shapes Presents“; a series of exclusive projects that will be released throughout the year. These seasonal projects will be continuing our core ethos of functional playful fun!

We are also pleased to announce our “big kids” range where our key designs will be available to adults to S, M, L, XL so you and your child can twin your style or just look stylish doing your own thing!

We will also be introducing new products over the year, expanding our range with new kids and adult clothes, including our “get in line” design as featured in the gallery. This is a sleek, simple, reflective design which we are sure you and your child will love!

We will also be launching a new lifestyle section, including backpacks, cushions, blankets and limited edition screen printed posters! These will all feature our iconic grey jersey, bespoke designs, along with a healthy dose of creative playful projects.

Soon our kids won’t only be able to wear our own design, but also help create their own! Watch this space!

All our new designs from our new projects 2016 will be available from our webstore and for wholesale purchase please get in contact at info@shapesofthings.co.uk

And just a reminder, we are still looking for new brand reps in the Japan and Australia territories! Please get in contact at info@shapesofthings.co.uk if interested in getting involved!

Watch this space as Shapes Kids gets a brand new look!

Japan and Australia Brand Rep Search and New Stockists!

Shapes of Things are ever expanding our brand and our clientele meaning we are introducing our new stockists and we are launching the new Japan and Australia Brand Rep Search!

We are very pleased to announce we are now being stocked in some new stores in the UK and abroad! In Manchester, we are now being stocked by Little Nutkins. Meanwhile internationally, we have a new Australian stockist in Little Devils and we are very excited to introduce our first American stockist Elegant Child in Brooklyn, NY!

In conjunction with this, we are launching the Japan and Australia Brand Rep Search! We have had much success with our existing team based in the US and Europe, spreading the good word Shapes in their continents. So with Shapes now being stocked in Japan by Littowa and Australia by Max & Poppy (as well as the aforementioned Little Devils) we are launching the Japan and Australia Brand Rep Search!

We are looking for team members who are passionate about our brand ages/ sizes 6M — 8Y. As a SHAPES OF THINGS #shapeskids team member, you will be given an unlimited discount on our entire brand through your term in exchange for high quality, well lit + styled photos of your little ones in our products. More information will be sent to the finalists.

If you are interested, please email us at info@shapesofthings.co.uk and keep an eye on our @shapeskids Instagram page for the competition launch over the weekend!

We ask for people who are genuine admirers of our company.
NOTE: this is not the cutest kids contest.
This is not the highest follower contest.
We simply want individuals who we feel are the best fit into our brand and aren’t here just to get some freebies! We are excited to see all your bubbas photos… Brand Reps will be announced in two weeks. Good Luck.

Introducing our International Brand Reps!

At the end of 2015, Shapes Kids ran a competition to find 4 International Brand Reps to join our Winter team and represent us globally. The response we received was overwhelming, but we were able to select 4 wonderful mothering fashion bloggers from across the globe to help spread the good word Shapes! So without further ado, let us introduce our Winter Team Brand Reps!

Elise Wigeteg
Elise lives in Växjö in Southern Sweden and is the designer and director of fashion blog Edit + Vivo.

She has two children, one of each gender and temperament! Ceasar (4.5 years old) is “the wild one, made on our frisky vacation to Curaçao, during the wildest hurricane, that’s why he’s louder than thunder and faster than lightning I guess!” Em (2.5 years old) is “the little sister who loves her big brother more than anyone, she’s always happy and the first two years of her life she didn’t argue with me once and even though she still has the happiest smile she really knows how to demonstrate her willpower by now!” “Actually, I love to have two such a different kids, and I love to see both me and husband in them and their characteristics.”

We love Elise’s blog, style and, of course, kids, and we are humbled by her kind words about us so far.

Jessica Lawson
Australian living in a Californian beach city with her Mexican husband and two “half Aussie, half Mexi-American” children Flynn, 2 years old, and Etta, 12 months old. Jessica works full time as a Visual Merchandising operations Manager for a retail fashion brand. Their favourite things to do on weekends are going to brunch and taking family naps.

Denise Otico
Denise has been married to Stephen for 12 years, together for 14 and lives in Southern California. After 9 years, they had their first born son, Roz. “He is 2 years old. He enjoys skateboarding, sports, and is one talkative friendly spirit. He gives high fives and fist bumps to everyone.” Then a year and a half later, they had their daughter, Daslynn who recently had her first birthday. “She may be little, but she is fierce. She is always smiling big, happy screaming, baby talking, and she has just started to stand on her own and walk.”

Denise works in finance but has always been interested in fashion and when she had her babies her attention veered towards dressing them up and was happy to discover the micro-fashion / “mom-life” Instagram community. She says “It is uplifting and so great to have met so many welcoming people who share the same interest. I am happy to support small business owners, such as Shapes of Things, who are genuinely passionate about fashion and creativity. And so you can see my excitement to be able to work with Shapes!”

Gaylin Howbert
Gaylin lives with her husband Josh and has one son, Jace, who is two. They live in Orange County, California and like to spend a good majority of their time going on spontaneous outdoor adventures to “tire Jace out since he’s a crazy ball of energy!”. I met my husband Josh while he was stationed as a marine here in California. Gaylin is currently a stay at home mother. Jace loves to eat and he loves to go swimming. According to Gaylin, if it were possible the child would probably live in either the ocean or the swimming pool!

We are very excited going forward hearing from all our Brand Reps and all the brilliantly creative things they’ll post with Shapes Kids! If you are interested in any future collaborations or becoming a Brand Rep, please contact us at info@shapesofthings.co.uk

Nor-Folk and Shapes of Things Collaboration

Shapes of Things are excited to announce our very first collaboration with the Norwich-based collective ‘Nor-Folk’. We recently had the pleasure of meeting Fiona and family behind the brand when on a trip down south. We realised straight away that we had a lot in common and shared a lot of the same design values, and aesthetics. So naturally the creativity combined and our first collaboration was born. By taking two of our iconic designs, we have created this stunning representation of our classic holographic Polka Shapes tee but with a bold Play Hard graphic twist. We have used a unique combination sparkling black ink and holographic vinyl.

This is a limited edition run and we won’t be reprinting. Each shape has been applied by hand produced here at Shapes and carries a slightly different placement making every tee truly unique. You can find the tee at our e-store and by using #NRxSOT
