Lilesadi loves…Gang of Freyja

Our friend Juliette Sallin from Geneva just opened her new label Gang of Freyja. The mythology around the beautiful and untamed goddess Freyja inspired her to create her own drawings, thoughts and inspiration around beauty, femininity and the sensuous wilderness of life.

A day in the dunes…

We had a fantastic day at the beach.  Sarah’s son Luca was running through the dunes like he was discovering the moon.
He is such a source of inspiration for our new kids line LileSadi petite…

He is little prince who everyday take us on a trip into his little world of joy and curiosity. Walking around with a child opens your eyes to things you would not notice.  A flower, a funny dog, a pigeon or just a whistling tree, which is great!In the dunes
