What Busby Wore // NUNUNU: A Tale of Two Skirts
Founders Iris and Tali started the brand after becoming disillusioned with the bright, unsubtle children’s clothes on the market – and decided to create a range that was minimalist and cool. Since then, the brand has grown – but their philosophy remains the same:
Kids are individuals, parenthood is the coolest thing, and there should be clothing options that reflect that. We continue to make clothes that exist outside of the old notion of adorable. Like every kid we’ve ever met, our clothes are unique in their own way.
I spent all of H-Bear’s naptime perusing the nununu website, and eventually decided upon two skirts for Busby – one in yellow and one in grey – and a t-shirt to pull each outfit together.
The idea behind this post is ‘A tale of two skirts’: the same skirt, in two different colours, in two very different settings. I’m rather excited to click ‘publish’ on this post…
The first location for the shoot was in the car park of an abandoned warehouse in Hull – not the nicest of areas, but I loved the industrial, slightly apocalyptic feel to the location (although Busby looks rather happy that the world has potentially ended in some of these shots…!).
The Skirt (from £55)
The skirt in both shoots is the Maxi Tulle Skirt. It’s couture-inspired and Busby loved how it made her feel like a fairy! It’s such a versatile garment, and I can see Busby wearing it throughout the summer for various different events (including my 30th birthday!).
The skirt length is very dramatic (as you’ll see in the next shoot below) and the layers of tulle give it such a lovely shape.
The Maxi Tulle Skirt comes in yellow and grey, and both have a sparkly waistband, which is utterly divine and makes me want the skirt in my size!
The Tee (from £39)
I wanted a top half to these skirts that would suit both shades, and pull everything together. I also needed something that Busby would wear, as it’s still a little bit chilly up here in Yorkshire for sleeveless numbers! This Splash T-Shirt (in black) was the perfect solution. It’s made from 100% cotton and is super soft.
Busby loves it because it has paint splashes on it, so it really appeals to her creative side. It’s also unisex, so H-Bear will be able to wear it in a year or so.
The second part of the shoot was held in the woods behind our house. I made Busby a flower crown for this shoot (she helped me choose which flowers went where), and we played fairies in the woods – hiding behind the cow parsley and jumping out from behind trees. I think she has an air of cheeky Queen Titania in these photos:
All of the above clothes can be found on the nununu website, which is such a treat to peruse (especially with a hot naptime cup of tea and KitKat).
