Little Spike has a little crush. Her name is aubrie. She is strong and delicate, ready for both wild adventure and tea parties. Preferably at the same time.
aubrie is Little Spike’s local hero! Designed up the road on Sydney’s beautiful northern beaches, aubrie is for little girls with big imagination. Taking inspiration from little girls everywhere, aubrie offers timeless femininity, vintage details, pretty prints and soft colours in beautiful, natural fabrics. She describes herself as pretty yet practical, playful but never precious. Just as every little girl should be!
For our first season at Little Spike, we’ve chosen some delightful little numbers from aubrie which are simply begging for adventure. I don’t have little girls of my own. But if I did, I’d find it pretty hard to go past these…
The literature nerd in me also loves the playful nod to some English classics (like the ‘Puck’ playsuit for mischievous little girls (and Shakespearean faeries…); and the ‘Maid Marion’ dress recalling Robin Hood’s strong-willed lady). I also love the beautifully evocative ‘Folkdancing’ dress in Midnight print and the ‘Sherpa’ vest in faux sheepskin. For the little ones, who could go past the adorable ‘Pitter Patter’ playsuit? And if pink is not your favourite, 'Puck' and 'Pitter Patter' also come in a beautiful charcoal.
A look on the inside of an aubrie garment will also tell you a lot about the value placed on quality. Think fine fabrics, pretty linings and French seams - all signs of excellent craftsmanship.
These beauties are yearning to feature in stories played out in gardens everywhere. I’m sure you know an imaginative little girl who could breathe life into them and make them her very own.
