and the little dog laughed
and the little dog laughed was launched in January 2008 by Australian designer, Kylie Platt. Kylie has a passion for fabrics and design, and particularly loves to combine textures and mediums; knits and fabrics, stretch and floral cottons, adding different layers to a piece that would otherwise be one dimensional.
Kylie draws a lot of inspiration from her own childhood, and particularly likes to create timeless pieces that evoke a sense of nostalgia. The inspiration for the labels’ name comes from one of her favourite nursery rhymes from her childhood, Hey Diddle Diddle.
The brand specializes in clothing using super soft, stretch fabrics for ages 0-3 years, as well as 100% cotton hand knitted animals.
This season’s style evokes a ‘touch of fantasy’. Attention to detail is paramount throughout the range. The range includes rompers with branded poppers, t-shirts, pants, shorts, bloomers, wraps and their signature long sleeve hoodies. All tees, long sleeve pullovers, rompers and bloomers come packaged in a zip bag that can be reused to carry all baby essentials.
Since their launch they have received a fantastic response, and are currently stocked in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, United Kingdom and United States. Kylie’s other passion is knits made from 100% pure cotton and bamboo.
A kaleidoscope of hand knitted cottons with woven fabric and corduroys to produce children’s toys that instantly bring you back to your childhood. Her latest design, blankets made with a combination of hand crochet in pure cotton, corduroy fabric and grosgrain ribbon trim, are a perfect combination of a touch of old with a touch of new.
