Junior Design Awards 2017 winners!

Junior Design awards platinum
We're super-proud to announce that we won two Junior Design Awards this year... 
PLATINUM - Best Online Children's Fashion Boutique
SILVER - Best Toy / Gift Retailer
Here's what Junior had to say about us:

THE PLATINUM AWARD FOR BEST ONLINE CHILDREN'S FASHION BOUTIQUE...

Set up by three mums who noticed a gap in the market for the kind of clothes and gifts they themselves would really like to give and receive, Scout & Co. has a clear aesthetic that is reflected in the clean lines and graphic style of the website and their swoon-worthy stock.

Selling kids wear from labels like Tootsa, Smalls, Indikidual and Bobo Choses, as well as gifts for mamas and homewares, their edit is pared back and highly Instagram-friendly with a good dose of fun.

A special mention has to be given to their new online, shoppable magazine which features super slick design, beautifully styled shoots and interesting articles from mums in fashion, beauty and interiors making the whole S&C experience even more exciting and immersive than ever.

Junior Editor Bonita said: "All the judges loved Scout & Co's cool yet friendly feel from their distinctive sorbet graphics to the tissue wrapped deliveries with a handwritten thank you note.

"It's those little touches that make online shopping an experience to rival the high street."  

 

THE SILVER AWARD FOR BEST TOY/GIFT RETAILER

We love shopping at Scout & Co as do many of our judges who rated the website highly for its stylish presentation and great mix of decor, gifts and toys.

With a dedicated 'Gifts for Mamas' section and an extremely useful 'Gift Ideas' section which filters according to age and price, this site makes finding the perfect gift a doddle so you can put your feet up and browse all the lovely things that you might quite like for yourself!

Boys can wear pink (of course)

Here at Scout & Co, we're firm believers that pink isn't just for girls. Anyone can wear any colour.

And here's a perfect example… Stanley, son of Fiona Burrage (creative director of Nor Folk), looks dreamy in this Beau Loves sweatshirt.

See more from this shoot on Fiona's journal here.
