Billie Faires Launches 5th Collection With George at Asda!
Last summer I discovered the Billie Faires collection in George at Asda and Raffie rocked his little breton jersey romper and navy vest top frequently. It was comfortable and easy to wear and wash so what’s not to love?
What I was rather keen on last summer was how this outfit looked far more high end than a supermarket purchase and I don’t think would be out of place in some of the French named boutiques specialising in children’s clothing. But… Of course it’s a fraction of the price. My Mum said ‘Well the material probably isn’t quite as nice to feel’ but I don’t think she’s right. I think George really go a long way in general into making their clothes as good as possible and I’ve never found anything doubtful with quality on anything that I have ever bought.
So this week when Billie launched her fifth collection with George is was ace to get a sneaky peek ahead of them launching on line this Friday and yet again I was mega impressed. Lots of lovely floral ditsy prints that reminded me of the White Company (again not with White Company price tags) and lovely light fabrics which felt good to the touch, not cheap or done on a budget at all. I was so impressed also when I spoke to Billie – she seemed so on the ball, articulate and knowledgeable about the collection. She was passionate and not just about the colours or the way they looked on a hanger! As a mum herself she said she knew they had to be practical. It’s lovely to have expensive pieces from boutiques but for 2 year olds, really? When would they wear them, surely parents would be too frightened to put them in something that was so pricey and wouldn’t they save them for best meaning actually, they’d never get worn She also said she wanted the clothes to look just as good when they’d been washed and when I said that I was rather keen on the fact the line LOOKED like children’s clothes and not as if they were made for mini adults – she was emphatically in agreement and said that was EXACTLY what she wanted. There was time enough for children to look grown up!
I think I fell a bit in love with her then. I liked her in TOWIE, she never really let herself down in behaviour and I always thought her and her sister were kind and calm and a bit different from some of the other female cast members. But I like her even more now and her clothing line is awesome!
Here’s are some of my fave pieces from her SS20 range with George – out on line this Friday!
