The Mausbird SS14 collection is almost available in the stores and we are thrilled! We can’t wait until next week!
“It’s fresh, exciting..”
Beautiful colour combinations and fun animal and fruit prints, all hand printed on soft organic cotton babysuits for the tiny one’s, T-shirts for the slightly bigger children but also tank tops and pants… We interviewed MietzeB to find out what inspired her for this collection and we wanted to know more about the person behind this great Dutch brand!
How would you describe your brand?
Mausbird is like an adventure, fruit, animals and a world of graphic prints! Characterised by bold colour combinations and hand drawn illustrations and every item is printed by hand.
What is the inspiration behind your SS14 collection?
The summer in the city! I tried to combine graphic figures (the city) with realistic illustrations of tropical animals and fruit.
What is your favorite piece from the collection?
The green watermelon babysuit, which also comes in kids sizes! (See below!)
Do you have children? How does that influence your work?
Yes I have a daughter, she inspired me to listen to my heart and begin Mausbird. I also missed something when I bought her clothes, not too girly or not really for boys and affordable.
What are the most rewarding and most challenging aspects of your job?
It’s most rewarding to see people wearing Mausbird on the streets, and let’s not forget to mention my family and friends who are so supportive and let me use their kids as models. It’s really challenging to get a whole collection together and a photoshoot and a lookbook, cards the whole thing, and then you start to wonder if people like it and will buy it??!
How would you describe your own personal style?
Not too feminine, I like mens sweaters with red lipstick, sneakers with nice colbert’s, a mix of chic with hip hop.
Where can our readers buy your brand?
Online at www.mausbird.com or go to bonbonontheblock in Rotterdam (Holland!) or one of the other stores, you can find all points of sale on Mausbird’s website.
Mietze’s favourite! The Babysuit / Watermelon green. Available in a Kids T-shirt as well! Lovely colour combination!
Colourful, fresh and exciting!
Definitely my favourite! Love bananas!! Can’t wait for this T-shirt to become available!!
