Interstellar guests, come in, come in! Every star child is invited to Ben Benson's comet. We'll slide on Saturn's rainbow-colored rings and climb Mercury's highest volcanoes. We'll look for loose Alaskan moose on the moon and collect galactic wild clumps of sun rays. We'll paint a flag we can all relate to: forget-me-not blue for the sky, the Ursa Major constellation for gold and the North Star for hope. To all you adults who love rising walls, building barriers and drawing frontiers: our houses might be small, but the Universe is our home. Can you see those stars over there? That's you and me. We? Cosmos! Let's twinkle!
Bobo Choses' Autumn/Winter 2019-20 collection looks at the story of Benny Benson, the 13-year-old Chignik boy who entered a contest for designing the flag for the Territory of Alaska in 1927. He looked to the sky for inspiration, choosing the familiar constellation he looked for every night before going to sleep at the orphanage. Benny's design was chosen over 700 other submissions to represent the future of the Alaska Territory to the present days. Like Benny did once, we also looked up to the sky to discover that there's a flag that links to all of us, the Universe. Dedicated to all those kids who know we are all made of stars.
Bobo Choses is located in Mataró, by the Mediterranean Sea, about thirty miles from the city of Barcelona. Occupying an old toy factory two blocks from the beach, you can recognize the offices by the two giant colored rhombi painted on the main doors. B.C. was born in 2008 with the idea of creating a clothing brand that could capture the magical, passionate look and language of children. The first collection - 'The Englishman and the Sitting Bull' in 2009 - was successfully received by both public and media. Since then, their growth has been constant: B.C. garments, made locally, can be found in more than thirty countries. Bobo Choses' team works passionately to create innovative and fun worlds for children. The creative department is led by Adriana Esperalba, founder and creative director of the company. Each collection tells a story that is published as a children's book, making clothes special and meaningful. People at B.C. love hand-illustrated prints that go along with carefully selected colours and fabrics in comfortable shapes. B.C. speaks the language of children - the core values are creativity, passion, honesty and a sense of humor.
