Baby Bibs, Bowls + Beads

From the creator of our baby kimono comes a delightful new feeding-time accoutrement: the bib! Momo is delighted to introduce this sweet offering from local designer Plastic Pony. Made from kawaii Japanese cotton, it’s designed to stay put with an adjustable snap closure, so little Hector can’t yank it off during dinner.

Buddha was kind enough to model a bib for us.
We love the charming Japanese fabrics of our new bibs!

Speaking of meal time, look what just touched down for the table — adore-a-bowls.  The perfect size for rice (of course), morning cereal or evening ice cream. Adult supervision is advised if using these for baby as they are breakable!

Every good bowl deserves a spoon ... Bon Appetit!

Oh Canada!

Recent political tensions have many of us musing about crossing the border. At Momo, we’re one step ahead as we’ve made our way to Canada to seek style that Seattle has yet to experience. For Fall 2016, we are proud to present small batch clothing from our northern neighbors of Montreal.

What’s interesting about many of the garments from the City of Saints is the blend of Parisian influence with North American sensibility. To start, Body Bag from French-Canadian clothier, Jude Desjardins. Yes, odd name, and everything we love in quality clothing: unique design, delicious fabric, well-made construction, lasting and versatile style. And in the dresses — pockets!

Our second delightful capsule collection comes from emerging designer, Marigold by Marilyne Baril. This is her first season selling to shops, and we are so happy to have her fresh shapes and graphic patterns in our boutique. It reminds us of early Cop-copine.

Dots nice!
We know what you’re thinking ... “What? White for fall?” We say, goes with black! Just throw a big chunky sweater over it, pull on your knee boots and you’re on your way.

So, this is just a taste of what’s new for autumn. Come give us a visit and find out what else we’ve got in store for you. We’d love to see you!

Shirts You’ll Love, Far Beyond Fall

Today’s busy man wants go-to pieces in his closet that he can rely on to look good, wear well and convey style. Our goal at Momo is to find distinctive brands for men with the right combination of quality, craft and price. Two of our favorites are & Sons Garment Co. from Toronto and Bruun & Stengade of Copenhagen.

& Sons may become your favorite shirt maker. Why? By focusing only on crafting men’s shirts, & Sons produces a well-made garment with a casual elegance that you will want to wear every day. The quality starts with fabrics produced in small batches. The contemporary designs are anchored in a knowledge of classic tailoring, and executed with exact attention to detail.

Substantial fabrics

Subtle patterns

Easygoing style

Bruun & Stengade, a line from Copenhagen, offers shirts with continental style in both modern and slim fits. Long gone are the days when the starched white shirt was de rigueur business attire. Bruun & Stengade’s unique textures and sophisticated color palate looks sharp from the corridors of business to the weekend dinner party. These shirts pair well with jeans to blazers, offering smart versatility to any man’s wardrobe.
