Baba Fashionista with Shmuncki & GIVEAWAY

Another weekend and yet another giveaway on the blog (along the one where you can win 2 tickets to the Baby Show 2017 at ExCel London, click here to enter!) as we discovered a great independent brand. So embark with us for Baba Fashionista with Shmuncki. This week is all about a London-based design house specialising in classic and luxury babywear and gifts. And don’t forget to enter the COMPETITION for a chance to win a £25 voucher to spend on this gorgeous website!

3 Facts about Shmuncki

    • The shop owner, Helen is a mum entrepreneur who decided to take the plunge and create her own baby brand after having had a career in IT marketing. Passionate about gorgeous fabrics and prints, her aim was simple: she wanted the clothes to be lovely, but more importantly she wanted them to be comfortable in loose fitting, safe and breathable fabrics. It’s clear that she knows what mamans want for their little ones!
  • Helen is working with a small but perfectly formed band of highly skilled ladies who share her vision and produce her designs, exactly to her specification, with the ability to oversee step by step. I am so proud to feature this brand today on Baba Fashionista as I really want to support such a brand!
  • Each item is made in the UK and the brand’s fabrics are sourced locally.  Each collection is produced in very small quantities with many items being in limited edition lines. It also means you can purchase something that little bit unique (j’adore!) and you won’t be bumping into it on the high street! I just love it! I always want Baba to be unique!

Monochrome Baby leggings

The first item we received for this review  is not something I would usually go for. I must admit that I never ever bought any harem style leggings for Baba. But they happen to be just adorable! Incredibly soft and comfortable, Baba could not resit but crawl around while I was trying to take some pictures.

Maman is trying to take a picture, so let’s make sure it’s not easy…

The leggings have a longer mid section for a loose comfy fit with a non-roll elasticated waist and deep ankle cuff. Shmuncki’s aim is to produce comfortable clothes in loose fitting. Well, I say it’s a hit! And the fact that they are made in 100% soft interlock cotton with seams overlocked inside for a quality finish is the cherry on top of the cake!

The famous bum in action…

The item is perfect and très moderne. The Tribal print also adds some fun to the item. I am hoping that Baba will still wear them over next spring. It will be the perfect piece of clothing with a lighter vest or top!

Harbour long sleeved T-shirt & Leggings

This set is just gorgeous! As soon as we received it in the beautiful gift box with our personalised note, I just fell in love.

All the items were lovely packed with a cute note.

I know that many mamans think that dressing their little boy in blue is kind of a cliché, but I am never bored of doing so. It just suits so nicely mon bébé.

A very smart outfit, don’t you think?

Once more, both the leggings and the T-shirt are made of very beautiful cotton. The nautical look is just a dream.

And I have never seen a T-shirt so easy to put on! If like me, you have a little wriggly monster when it’s about time to dress them up, Shmuncki  creates items facile to get on and off!

We tried two different versions. The total look when we stayed at home.

Looking stylish and aware of it…

I also matched up the t-shirt with another pair of trousers for a softer (but yet still super stylish!) look. I have not seen such a comfy baby for a long time.

Casually playing. Yet I am still a babe…

Le verdict?

Shmuncki produces unique baby clothes. Both the items we received in order to write this review were comfy, stylish and made of great quality! Each garment is a beautiful piece made with a lot of care and passion. Its products feature two elements close to my heart: style and comfort.  The dream comes true for any parent!

Shmuncki is GORGEOUS!!!! Got It?

Head off now to their website . You will for sure find something to buy for your little one. And don’t forget to look at the gifts and sets section if someone among your family or friends are pregnant. They have the most gorgeous presents for you!

Alternatively, you can also visit Helen’s Etsy shop here . She has just started doing personalised poems & nursery prints. And let me tell you something, they are as fabuleux as her clothes!

I hope you loved reading Baba Fashionista with Shmuncki. You would have understood that we fell in love with a new fabulous brand…

Disclosure: we were kindly provided with those clothes by Shmuncki for the purpose of this review. All opinions are my own. And yes, Baba is always aiming to be the most stylish baby in town!


I am delighted that Shmuncki is featured on our Frenchie series Baba Fashionista! I hope you enjoyed reading this review and you will come back for the next Baba Fashionista post next week. In the meantime, both Baba and Frenchie Mummy wish you a fab half-term! And what is a better way than giving you the chance to win a £25 voucher to treat your little one? Oui! £25 to spend on Shmuncki’s website right now and be part of the stylish gang!
