The Animals Observatory
The Animals Observatory is the result of a love at ﬁrst sight scenario between two people, Laia Aguilar and Jan Andreu. Having been a long-time admirer of Laia Aguilar’s work during her time as creative director for Bobo Choses, Jan Andreu proposed they join forces to found a new fashion brand for children. Jan Andreu has proved his incredible talent for business time and time again over the course of his career but The Animals Observatory project represents the realization of one of his dreams as an entrepreneur, and particularly as a parent. Laia Aguilar was the perfect choice of partner to make that dream a reality. She sees children’s fashion as an artistic tool through which she can express her own extraordinary world.
The Animals Observatory Fall/Winter 2020 collection designed by Laia Aguilar is a love story with pop iconography, from David Hockney to Jarvis Cocker, with a touch of Bruno Munari´s geometrical aesthetic.
Bold outlines, colours clashing in the best way… purples with greens, reds with blues. A combination of structured, oversized silhouettes that are comfortable, statement making, and as always, wearable. We built on our staple fabrics and textures with the addition of glitter and unique striped and plaid patterns. Never forsaking practicality, our selection of fabrics from cotton percale to our water repellent ¨life jacket¨ vests make this a versatile selection to suit any weather. Laia Aguilar has designed instantly recognizable pieces that can be worn day in, day out.
