Such a charming lad; his hearing protection and binky color choices are clearly a nod to spring, and the trousers tucked into the socks are so of-the-moment. Mixing his stripes and leaving his jacket open are both indicative of the casual confidence his look conveys… and he is obviously totally comfortable with his less-than-full head of hair.
Swedish baby style: POP colorful stripes, check. MAM colorful pacifier, check. Style in his genes, check. Makes me miss the days when my children were babies in Sweden. That was the way to live a family life.
Since then, I have moved to Paris, where children where black, brown, navy blue and grey. But are nonetheless tres chic.
It is funny to think that even babies have different styles in different countries…
I’m clearly the only one who thinks it’s weird to take a baby somewhere you know is going to be too loud for him/her. Whatever happened to babysitters? I can’t help feeling kids are an accessoire for some.
To those of you who are questioning a baby at a show:
maybe he LIKES going to the fashion shows. The lights, the action, the movement and all the people to make faces at you. Why wouldn’t that be REALLY fun for a baby? He’s safe, he’s with somebody who cares for him (prob. his mummy) and he looks happy. Why not?
I work in the music industry and it’s not uncommon for people to bring their children to outdoor summer time concerts (with hearing protection of course).
not to mention – Stockholm is a very parent friendly place.
This is definitely a cross-cultural moment to make you think!
I’m one of those Americans without kids who doesn’t think kids need to be toted everywhere, and I wickedly wonder how soon this kid is going to start bawling or spit out the pacifier onto the runway etc.
But if the Swedish think it’s groovy — great! I remember a trip to Japan two years ago where I was impressed by how much more child-friendly the cities were than those in US; I like seeing and thinking about different ideas of a culture’s involvement in child-rearing.
