Its Tiny Wild West at Guess Kids




I was checking my mails as usual and replying my usual work related e-mails until I stumbled upon a mail that said 'You and your lil one are selected and will be introduced to GuessKids Fall Collection 2014. I was super excited....   I called out to my boys, ''Guess what.... we get to see the GuessKids's new fall collection 2014'' !! The lil ones scratched their heads and went back to playing, they weren't sure what I was saying.

Guess has always been my favourite, not only because it was started in 1981 the year that I was born but because it caters for everyone in the society. You will aways find something that catches your eyes here. 

It was started by the Marciano Brothers -  Maurice Marciano & Paul Marciano. Their first ever design was slim fitting jeans, 3 zip Marilyn. Since then it has evolved dramatically over the years and it has become one of the notable brands in this era.

It was to be held in KLCC GuessKids. So a week before the event I went to check out the place. It's at the second level in  Ramlee mall. Their store number is 213B and 213C. On the left hand side is Crabtree and Evelyn and on the right is Ralph Lauren and Burt's bee. Now you know the exact location of the store.... So its far easier for you to pop in anytime when you are free.....

If you look into their store you can already see some elements that will describe their fall collection 2014. Noticed anything unusual?! You may want to know what the Cactus and Hay doing there ? Read on to find out further.

On the 13th of September, the day of the event, my lil ones and I were there on time, well maybe slightly earlier. The Guess Staff were getting ready for the event and doing their last minute touch ups. More and more guests were coming in with their lil ones. Some of them were bloggers and some were from the media. I also noticed a few celebrities such as Malayisan supermodel, Amber Chia and her son Ashton, Belinda Chee who is a famous host and emcee along with her daughter Danielle.

The event started sharp 10am as scheduled. We were all invited in to see their collections...... it was free and easy ! Something that I like........ you get to see, touch and feel their collection on the spot.

You saw the cactus and the hay earlier in their stores, and now you see it here again ?! Can you put two and two together ? Yup.... this fall collection is all about the Wild West ! We are transported back in time, A time where cowboys and cowgirls were ruling the town, It brings back history and legends alive and so does the unique style of clothes worn in the 19th-century. The new collection was mainly inspired by this. The collection is very elegant, stylish yet comfortable with western accents to it. They had real hay on their sets....... no joke ! You could smell the freshness and it transports you way back in time, the wild west era. ( you must be wondering why in the first place I smelt the hay.......... hahahaha........ cause why kids wanted me to do so ! )

As you look around the store, you are just spoiled for choices..... they have wonderful pieces. As you move from one section to the other, you will fall in love with the collections even more. From petite denim dresses to graphic sweatshirts, from denim skirts and jackets to chambray tops, from distressed denim jeans to floral print dresses.... and I can just go on and on. Indeed a beautiful collection. They have divided into sections based on age and sex. This makes it a lot easier for you to choose what you want without having to go around and around the shop. Most of these clothes will also give you that vintage look that you've been longing for. The also have some of the new collection displayed right at the centre of the store.... so you have no chance of missing it. The colours are so vibrant and bold that you will definitely stop by to look.


These are some of the new collections displayed right at the centre of the store 



Girl's Jacket
This is a girl's jacket that comes with long sleeves and some cool buttons on both sides. This design definitely gives you that vintage look for your young one, at the same time adding some style and boosting her confidence to another level....... Bring on the Cowgirl.... YEEE HAAAAWW !!!



A lovely pink dress 
This is a another lovely piece that brings out the style in your lil toddler. A light pink dress with buttons right at the centre and a white ribbon at the waistline.



As I've mentioned earlier they have categorised based on age and sex to make shopping a little easier for mummies and daddies. First stop is the new born collection which is from 0 to 9 months. They have beautiful body suits, denim skirts and dresses for newborns.



                           
                                 Sweet white and
                                  pink bodysuits that comes in floral design 
Bodysuits that snaps at the bottom

Next section is the infant section. It covers ages between 12-24 years. Here you have baby suits, shirts and denim overalls. Your lil boy will look extra cute in this beautiful detailed denim overalls that can make head turn his way whether he is sitting comfortably in a stroller or running around the malls. The brand takes an extra effort to make sure these denim gives your babies extra comfort while giving them a cool yet classy western look...... Welcome on-board Lil COWBOY !!!

While I was admiring the collections, our lil guy spotted the goodies !! He was jumping up and down excitedly, tugging on my jeans....... 'Mummy can I have the lollipop'. I wasn't sure if he could and hence I told him to wait a little but he got a lil annoyed. Seeing the scene, Rachel Lim the senior divisional manager who was very friendly & down to earth came to my son's rescue. She spoke to him, gave him a balloon and asked him to help himself with all the goodies........ you should have seen the grin on his face as soon as he heard that !

Lollipops and Sweets..... YUMMMmmm............

 I continued checking out their Fall collections. The next section is for boys which is divided into 2 to 7 years & from 8 to 16 years. Here its all about plaid button-down flannels , denim jeans and graphic tees and long sleeves shirts. The plaid shirts have a very unique colour combination that I love and that would stand out unlike any other common shirts. And their graphic tees.... are such a stealer !! I couldn't get my eyes of them...... 




Plaid button-down flannels and denim jeans 




Next is Girls from 2 to 6 years & from 7 to 14 years of age. Here the denims take a lead as well. You should check out their wonderful patched, ruffled denim skirt. When you look into this piece closely a lot of detailing is incorporated in it. Its full of patchwork and has a ruffled finish..... giving your girl an adorable look..... now if only I had a girl, I would certainly get this !

Rachel Lim was kind enough to introduce the new Guess Kids Fall collection and also gave us a lot of information that I was not aware of regarding their clothes and denims. I will try and share what I've learnt from her and her team.

 Some of you would have noticed, as soon as you enter their store, right in the centre they have these red bar - which is called the Red Denim Bar. It features basic boy and girls denims.

 In front of this denim bar, you have some denims hanging at a much lower level.... for your lil ones to reach, touch and feel it for themselves. It has labelling to show the different cuts of denim. The cuts are slightly different for boys & girls


Denims hanging at a lower level


For boys you have 

1. Relaxed boot - its a relaxed fit and its slightly wider through the leg
2. Skinny - sits low at hip and skinny fit all over
3. Slim straight - its slim through the thighs and has a narrow leg fit
4. Supper skinny - its very skinny fit all over

For girls you have

1. Skinny boyfriend - skinny fit all over and it sits at the hip
2. Brittney skinny - supper skinny fit and skinny legs
3. Daredevil skinny - skinny fit all over and sits lower on hips
4. Highwaisted skinny - skinny fit all over and sits above hips
5. Capri - skinny fit all over and sits lower on hips, has 14'' inseam
6. Legging - super skinny fit all over and very narrow leg opening 

She also shared with us what makes Guess denim so different from the others in so many ways.

1. First of all, it has elements of Fabrication, Washers and Detailing. You can see some destroy elements on the denims, stitch overs, some patches at the back of the stitch overs and crystal blings.

2. They have added techniques for example raw edges, thick stitches 

3. When you look into each pieces, there are a lot of detailing for example the cut, the fit and so on. You need to try it on to try their fit

4. It comes with various colours of washers - dark washers, lighter washes. 

5. Some comes with a bit more stretch and some are lesser in stretch

6. In finishing, some denims are coated. You can have blue coating or blacking coating. This gives you a little punk and edgy look

7. Some denim have different leather patches 

8. Jeans cutting for infants are on the bigger side, to accommodate the diaper. For bigger kids the cuttings are much slimmer

9. There is elements of adjustable at the waist. The kids grow very fast and so you can increase the life span of the jeans by adjusting it

10. Lastly, when you look into each piece, there are a lot of creativity within each piece. A lot of work is done on one simple piece of denim that brings out the style while giving them the extra comfort that they need.


She finished off by giving us a tip which I would start using for my boys immediately ! If your child is 2-3 years old, you can buy a denim with one size up. If its too long, then just style it by folding it up.... so you basically can wear it shorter or longer. This increases the life span of your denim !!

I liked most of the collection so it was difficult to choose. We were invited by Jaslene to take pictures at the Photo booth as well....... the kids were having a marvellous time posing with the props at the Tiny Wild West Photo Booth. These are some of my boys favourite props !! They loved it.... and couldnt stop posing with them  









My Cowboy in the making 




I chose the graphic tee for both my kids. I just love the design. It was made from cotton so it was so soft, machine washable and gives that vintage look that my husband will love. The very next day, the kids wanted to wear it out........ and so they did !! The kids felt very comfortable in them. My husband loved it and he said ''We should get more of these, the kids look good in them'' !!
