Donna Wilson for John Lewis is here!


In what might just be one of the coolest collaborations to hit childrenswear in a while, the people at Donna Wilson, the designer behind those gorgeous handmade knitted creatures and sweetest of all homewares, have teamed up with John Lewis for a range of clothing for babies and children from one to eight years old.

Fans of this blog will already know I’m a big Donna Wilson fan, after I was given Cyril the Squirrel Fox as a gift several years ago. He recently had to make a trip back to their HQ for emergency surgery after a small child’s finger poked open his knitted exterior.

So, back to the kids’ clothes, I ordered a couple of things online as the range sadly isn’t available in my local John Lewis in Liverpool. For baby gal, I went for these black leggings with cat faces on the front of the ankles and tails round the back. For first born, I chose a green long-sleeve top with a fox print. When they arrived, I was really impressed with the quality, something you would expect from John Lewis, and the cotton felt really soft and thick.

Both my children are big for their age, but I wanted them to be able to wear the clothes now so I went for an age one for baby gal and age seven for my son. The leggings fit perfectly, and as soon as I tried them on her she giggled, pointed at her ankles and said ‘cat, cat!’ Which I took to mean she liked them!

Unfortunately, the squirrel top came up really small and was pretty snug fitting on my son, with the sleeves ending a few inches up his arm from his wrists. I don’t think even the bigger size would be big enough so sadly I had to return it. It’s still a gorgeous top though, and if you’ve got a younger or smaller child I would say go for it.

Let’s hope Donna Wilson and John Lewis team up again next season.
