Welcome us in joining this stunning brand to our Eva's World family.
Behind Milena & Milenka are Milena and Ana, two friends who love fashion and pretty things.
When Milena and Ana met in Poland back in 2013, an immediate connection emerged between them, and when a few months later they became coworkers, they began to talk about what they would like to do, about starting a project that happened through many phases until reaching what was later Milena & Milenka.
Why Milena & Milenka?
When Ana became a mother the second time, she did not hesitate to call her little girl Milena, using the Polish diminutive "Milenka", which means something like "adorable", "my little one". ”
"When I saw my friend in a photo with my daughter, I couldn't think of another title for the caption than Milena & Milenka." -And my husband, a fundamental part of this project, said without further ado: "It will be the name for our brand of clothing creative, different, original, fun, modern and alternative ".
And here it all started. A year of learning, nerves and above all a lot of hope.
Milena is an artist and soul of M&M, with art exhibitions in Spain and Poland. She is inspired by Milenka and the freshness and madness of Adriana (Milenka's older sister) to capture reality from the point of view of a child and the irresistible desire of the little ones to explore the world. The result is original and fun illustrations that adults can associate with our own childhood, something we resist losing when we grow up. Children are also great animal lovers, the dog is the best friend of all children and so it is with Milenka. The beautiful dog that accompanies the illustrations is none other than Milena's dog and Milenka's best friend.
Milena and Milenka defends slow fashion , with designs on unique garments made with certified organic cotton . Guaranteeing incomparable softness and durability and eco-sustainable production conditions . 100% designed and made in Europe .
“Our clothes must accompany our state of mind and our idea is to dress the little ones as authentic and real children . We make garments with very original and distinctive designs, with fun illustrations, betting on wide and comfortable patterns that make it easy to move freely, with colours and motifs that help children to live in their worlds of fantasy, colour and adventure in that sweet chaos that characterizes childhood ”.
Not just for the little ones
But we don't just dress the little ones. While Milenka symbolises rebellion and that chaos of when you are a child, Milena the artist represents creativity and a taste for detail in her designs for the elders of the house where innovation predominates in their graphics and abstract lines. Art in Every way.
As with any new brand or collection at Eva's World we like to offer you support with sizing to allow you to make the best choice for you and your children.
We have looked at the sizing of this exciting and stunning new brand and feel hooded jumpers and onesies are coming up small. We would recommend sizing up if your child is at the bigger end of the size.
T-shirts and long sleeve tops are slightly wider than some of the other European brands we stock but very similar sizing. So would say true to size for your child's height.
Dungarees are an amazing slouch/comfy fit and look amazing with a rolled up cuff. Be is in Duns 110/116 dresses and fits really nicely in a 110/116 dungaree with plenty of leg growing room.
As always we are happy to assist with any sizing enquiries. Please email us firstname.lastname@example.org
The material is organic cotton with 5% elastane in some products and feels amazing. It feels quite sturdy and can imagine will be very long lasting. Stitching and attention to detail looks fantastic.
There are beautiful small M and M labels on each of the products which are made from leather so would advise these products are not suitable for vegans.
We are excited to be exclusively stocking this brand in the UK and welcome all feedback and love to see your action shots. Please share them with us via email or our Facebook group.
Thanks as always for your support, Christina, Eva's World
