Oilily and their eternal flowers!


Oilily is legendary! Founded in 1963 by Willem en Marieke Olsthoorn. In the Sixties children’s clothing was a smaller versions of adults’ clothing. Plain and ordinary. Primarily grey, white and black. Not exactly the coluors with which to attract children. Oilily’s children’s clothing was a spectacular reaction to this plain style. And still nowadays, we are almost bewitches by their amazing color combinations, and this mixture of influences from every corner of the world… 

Also the new collection tries to break conventions… by trying out different angles… creating an alienating beauty that will remain interesting for a long time… hmmmm… we have to admit: those Oilily creations are so infectiously bright and beautiful… wearing them seems one is immediately morphing into a colour bursting butterfly!!!
