Age is no barrier to imagination, though – once we pass through the treacherous straits of adolescence – we can get sucked so far into adult life we sometimes need a little push to send us back into those magical worlds that were once open to us. That’s why you can never be too old to indulge in some piece of clothing covered in a childhood cartoon or literary illustration: it’s like Proust’s madeleine, involuntarily flooding you with glorious nostalgia.
If you were a fan of Babar the Elephant growing up, then here’s one you won’t want to miss. The Soulland meets Babar collection is based on the adventures of Babar and his friends in ‘Histoire de Babar ‘ written by Jean de Brunhoff in 1931. Colette will launch the collection on 3rd of April 2013 with three exclusive styles: a mens t-shirt, a girls t-shirt and a tote bag.
The collection will also be available in Opening Ceremony (New York, Los Angeles), Goodhood (London), Hunting & Collecting (Brussels), Soto (Berlin), Voo (Berlin) and other selected stores around the world.
