The baby blanket you need now (and the pants to match)

Can you feel the chill in the air? Winter is coming so it’s time to refresh your knit collection...

First up: the kids. The new Atelier/Child ‘BABE’ blanket and matching pants are at the top of our list (they’re also loved by celebs such as Liv Tyler).

“Our BABE pieces are playful and fun with a fashion edge,” says founder Jessica Baird Walsh. “These are perfect for modern mothers who love minimalist style, and monochrome. They photograph beautifully and look great styled in the nursery or in the stroller. As every mother knows, a favourite baby blanket is an item that goes EVERYWHERE with you when you have small children, so it’s also important that the design reflects the personal style of the mama who is going to be using it.”

Monochrome and minimal, this set is the epitome of cool, not to mention functional. Made from all natural cotton and cashmere, they’re super soft, perfect for sensitive skin and durable too. “For me, the perfect baby blanket is made from beautiful natural materials, is big enough to be multi-functional, and is easy to care for,” says Baird Walsh. “Best of all our luxe cotton cashmere fabrication is machine washable, making them both stylish and functional.”
