weekend house kids, was born in 2018 in Mataró, a small sea town at the north of Barcelona, with the aim to design and manufacture children’s clothes, with a Mediterranean accent – where the most important thing is to create quality lasting pieces. The brand commits to a responsible environmental manufacturing approach, assuring not only good working conditions of everyone involved in the project but always remaining respectful to the planet.
This season weekend house kids pay tribute to the first female art collector in history, Peggy Guggenheim, a woman who without any great understanding of art, but yes with a great intuition, had collected works of the best contemporary art artists in history. She supported the three most important artistic movements of the last hundred years: cubism, surrealism and abstract expressionism. That is why this collection is a walk through the different aspects of her life, from her figure as an icon, her pets and her beloved city of Venice.
The colour palette... Oranges pay tribute to their figure as an art icon, from an extravagant glasses that so characterized her to the white high boots. The turquoise palette is dedicated to one of her 14th dogs of the Lhasa Apsos breed and her big love for animals, one of them was little Sir Herbert. In the browns we find our tribute to the beautiful city of Venice, the place where she founded her museum. In 1951 Peggy decided to open the doors of her Venetian palace to the public, three afternoons a week and completely free, so that whoever wanted could enjoy her magnificent art collection. “For her, the collection was something to share”.
