I first discovered the brand Bernie and the Beanpole 2 years ago at The Spirit of Christmas Fair. An independent Childrens brand created by 3 mums in 2015, whom all have extensive experience in fashion buying/ designing and styling that saw a gap in the market for super soft and cosy knitted hats. The brand has since developed and extending collections include Nightwear and Loungewear.
The fundamental elements of the Bernie and the Beanpole are the importance of quality and exceptional design to produce FUN clothing for children which are bold in colours and playful in prints. They recently launched uber cool sweatshirts and sweater dresses extending the range further. Stanley was lucky enough to be gifted with a fantastic mint colour sweater only recently which my husband is completely envious of and wishes it came in his size!
As much as I am a sucker for a high street chain, I can’t stress enough how important it is to support and champion Independent brands who stand for so much. The quality is never compromised because non of the products are mass produced. And there’s also a nice feeling knowing that not everyone will be wearing the same!
Both my boys have the Bernie and the Beanpole Pom hats, which are fleece lined to make them extra cosy and winter warm. Stanley also has a pair of their 100% cotton pyjamas which he loves to wear. He only recently discovered that the brand logo was the same on all of his ‘favourite’ pieces…”look mummy, the Lightning again”!
With Christmas a matter of weeks away and the Children wanting and thinking they need a zillion toys, how about getting them a stylish snuggly jumper for winter nights or a new pair of pyjamas to add to their Christmas Eve excitement!
