mima Winter Outfit: new for winter 2013
Bitter cold winters often make us want to stay warm and cosy indoors rather than brave the icy elements. But where’s the fun in that? Now there’s nothing to stop you and your baby from venturing out to enjoy a crisp winter’s day thanks to the newly developed mima Winter Outfit.
A leather-look, three-part cover made to fit snugly over the seat pod and carrycot unit guarantees more than adequate protection from those biting winds. One section provides an extra layer over the canopy while another section covers up those little legs. A connecting section unites the two other pieces while further providing a window for your child to see out of, and for mum to keep an eye on him! Peek-a-boo!
Elegantly and carefully finished, the leather-look fabric is not only waterproof but also insulates heat thanks to its felt-like interior. The canopy further features a removable fur trim which, when combined with the leather-look cover, adds to the feeling of luxury.
And last but not least, let’s not forget the person who will be doing the pushing: you. The new handlebar mitt means that cold hands are a thing of the past. The snuggly pouch, which also features an elegant fur trim, wraps conveniently around the handlebar.
The new mima Winter Outfit is available in the chic tones of the leather-look flair collection: camel, black, chocolate and snow white.
Stroll in style come snow or shine.
mima: on point for autumn trends
Reinventing classics. That’s all fashion is, right? Trends repeat, sometimes seasons or years apart, each time with a little twist - something new; a new shape, model or cut; or even a teaming with a different fabric in order to bring it right back up to the modern day.
And that’s exactly what Loewe have done with their newest release: the revamped Amazona handbag.
The reincarnation of Loewe’s classic bag sees black leather combined with animal prints, suedes and other special touches. More elegant, practical and timeless designs, featuring stylish leopard print, can be seen on the Loewe website here.
Always keeping a close eye on top brands and trends of the season, how could we not compare these gorgeous bags with our very own bo buggies. With the same philosophy in mind, mima concurs just how effortlessly elegant these colour and pattern combinations truly work.
Above: the mima bo buggy in black with Leopard seat liner and visor.
bo comes in four leather-look shades which will last the test of time: black, camel, chocolate and Snow White. Combine your chosen base colour with bi-yearly Prêt-à-Porter fashion kits that are sure to satisfy even the most avid trend hunters among us…
Currently available for AW13: Leopard seat liner and visor, Furry Duck seat liner and canopy trim.
Stroll easy with mima bo. Fast fashion: your way, your style.

Presenting the mima moon highchair…
Cosmopolitan brand mima is the result of careful studies into the needs of today’s families. Our objective is to create innovative nursery products that offer a harmonious blend of comfort, functionality, innovation and stunning aesthetics. The elegant and sophisticated xari and kobi pushchairs have this year been joined by a new innovation… the moon highchair.
moon in highchair mode
When we buy a product for our children, we want to make sure that it complies with the highest of standards, whether it be safety, practicality, or pleasing to the eye. As these products are often an investment, we also need to know that they will last the test of time. mima has worked hard to achieve these expectations. The new moon highchair is an evolutive product that adapts to the physical development of our children, thus maintaining the elegant heritage of the brand.
moon is an innovative highchair that perfectly blends modern design with comfort and safety.
As with previous mima innovations, moon continues the 2-in-1 product philosophy. moon offers a highchair for baby which later converts into a junior chair. The product comprises two seat units, one on top of the other, that allow the chair to be used from birth as a newborn lounger with pillow (sold separately) and as a highchair once the baby reaches 6 months. Convert the highchair into a junior chair, which is suitable for children weighing up to 45kg, by simply removing the upper seat unit.
moon multiple recline positions
moon boasts elegant and innovative materials, such as transparent polycarbonate which gives the highchair a light and streamlined feel. Colour may be added through the use of seat liners and cushions which are available in White, Black and Camel - tones which easily blend with many modern kitchens and dining areas. The colour combinations and overall look of the highchair radiate hygiene and luminosity. Add this to the ease of use and you will see why the moon highchair is a star product.
The most notable characteristics of the product include the innovative, quick-release harness system, easy height adjustment meaning that dining at any table or kitchen breakfast bar is no longer a problem, the 3 position seat recline (seated, resting and sleeping ,especially developed for newborns) and the elegant, lightweight and resistant seat covers with 5 point safety harness.
Once again mima shows that design, comfort and child safety can be successfully united.

Available in 2013. Consult your local distributor here for further information.
mima: a Dutch Design brand
A minimalist, experimental, innovative and quirky approach to product design; refers to the aesthetic common to designers in The Netherlands.
The term Dutch Design is often used to describe various high end nursery product companies. And it is no coincidence. Many Dutch companies and brands achieve great heights thanks to the fact that design has become an integral part of product development in the Netherlands. Designers are regularly involved in the earliest phases of innovative processes and product development, especially in the pushchair business.
mima is Dutch Design through and through, but with an added extra; Italian flair and style. Dutch designer Davy Kho met wife and Head of Marketing Yolanda while studying and working in Milan, the fashion capital of the world. The mima brand therefore revels in the fusion of celebrated Dutch Design with a hint of notorious Italian chic, as well as influences from their round-the-world travels.
Innovation also plays a huge role within mima products, an example of which is the “carrycot inside” – a unique system which converts the seat unit into a carrycot and vice versa in mere seconds. Further innovation comes from the use of cutting edge material EVA which covers the seat pod, basket lids and canopy. This lightweight, wipe-clean surface truly adds practicality and style. And not forgetting the new 2-in-1 product moon which converts from a highchair into a junior chair by simply removing one piece of the seat unit.
Curious, emotional and distinctive…
Unusual shapes, smart ideas and innovative materials mixed with the unique approach of designer Davy Kho, means that a mima product offers the whole package.
