Apolina is designed in England, but inspired by travel and the natural world.
Traditional handicrafts from many different cultures serve as the starting point for all our pieces. Scandinavian, Mexican, American and Eastern European folk art particularly inspire our embroidery designs.
The relaxed silhouettes are designed mindfully to ensure children are comfortable and able to play freely in our pieces as well as ensuring an increased wear-time.
These are special yet casual pieces made for everyday... destined to become woven into the treasured memories of childhood.
Each piece has been produced ethically and with great care in India.
Apolina’s SS19 collection was inspired by holiday visits to botanical gardens: the sun bleached grandeau of the buildings, the flora casting naïve shadows over the sandy paths, the sweet scents of gardens in bloom.
Our colour palette was influenced by collected natural treasures, including faded petals, green and golden leaves bleached and dried by the sun.
The mood is relaxed, recalling the sense of contentment of family holidays, simple pleasures of being together: grassy picnics, running through sprinklers and paddling in ponds.
