Fashion is a competitive industry, with choice at our fingertips. But how do retailers choose which brands to stock?
We contacted children’s fashion boutique BuBi London to find out. Known for hand-picking only the best Italian brands to the delight of their Kensington and Chelsea visitors and international customer base.
“Our clientele relies on us to stock only the best,” says founder Marco, “they want high-quality materials and elegant designs for their children and where possible sustainable fabrics. We regularly go to Milan to ensure the factories are producing that Made in Italy feel that cannot be replicated elsewhere.”
The Made in Italy Childrenswear is for both boys and girls, and high-quality is assured and made with sustainable refined fabrics like linen, organic bio cotton, wool, silk, cashmere, and milk fibre.
Extensive efforts are made to ensure all their luxury clothing and accessories match comfort with beautiful design.

Only the best Italian brands
BuBi London insists every brand they stock is both unique and has long-standing family values and style. There are enough variety and distinction between the labels, but they are all intrinsically linked with the quality renowned with the Italian way of life.

BuBi currently stock five brands; il Trenino, J.O Milano, La Perla, Mimu, and Story Lois. These chic labels carry minimal branding, but the style is unmistakable.
Established in 1968, Il Trenino is renowned for producing garments with attention to detail, new styles, and later the Il Trenino brand dedicated to children’s fashion accessories and baby shoes, hats, scarves, and gloves.
Using their years of design experience, they put their special attention to details to their brand Il Trenino. Using only premium and natural materials like wool, cashmere, and cotton, to ensure the maximum comfort for babies and children.
Authenticity is assured with factories in Italy producing their range and rigorous quality control.
The protagonists of J.O. Milano collections are the colours, the palette with which children play and draw a delicate and magical inner world. The company believes in tradition, intended as a commitment to maintain and pass on with originality and naturalness as consolidated over time.
Sophisticated and elegant style, but at the same time designed for a daily look, softness of the fabrics and comfort of the shapes give the garments excellent versatility and wearability.
Since 1979 J.O. Milano dresses children using fine fabrics, carefully selected among the best Italian producers, and dedicating the Made in Italy tailoring care to every stage of the manufacturing process.
La Perla Kids is an extension of the luxurious underwear brand with the same level of attention to detail and fit.

In 1949, Loris Stori created his company, aiming to a specific goal from the very beginning: quality.
The respect of “Quality without compromise” is an imperative that still accompanies every moment of the hosiery factory, which over the years has maintained delicate craft passages together with innovation, investing in technology and diversifying the offer side by side with famous designers.
Today Story Loris can count on qualified suppliers that provide the best in cotton, silk, cashmere and merino wool, providing a “Made in Italy” path from the yarn.
All stages of production involving the socks are still implemented internally in Desenzano del Garda, where starting from a craft perspective the latest generation of knitting machines were gradually inserted.
