We are delighted to have won JOINT GOLD in the Best Children's Activewear Collection category, and SILVER in the Best Children’s Heritage Fashion Brand category in this year’s Junior Design Awards for our AW22 Taeuber-Arp Elements Collection!
Inspired by planetary weather elements and artist Sophie Taeuber-Arp, the Autumn/Winter 2022 collection features bold storm, vibrant shape, moons and delicate fauna prints. The colour palette is vivid, combinations of grenadine red, rose pink, royal blue, bright green, dark night and touches of orange and yellow. The Jackets, All-in-ones and Dungarees within the collection are designed with children in mind, made to last, with taped seams and waterproofing levels of at least 10,000mm (suitable for heavy rain). These can be paired with our wellies, snowboots and layering pieces to enable children to get outdoors and be active whatever the weather.
This is what the judges had to say about our AW22 collection in the Best Children's Activewear Collection category:

This is what the judges had to say about our AW22 collection in the Best Heritage Children's Fashion Brand category:
"Muddy Puddles continue to create the most robust and comfortable outerwear and now beach and swimwear with a wonderful graphic twist. I always look forward to seeing their collaborations with exciting artists and this Sophie Taeuber-Arp AW22 collection is fab." Bonita Turner, Editor of JUNIOR
"I used to dress my children in muddy puddles (who are just turning 16!). It’s really good to see this brand moving with the times with design and pattern. A brand that’s stood the test of time with consistent quality." Abi Campbell, children’s fashion photographer, @abicampbellphotography
"My son’s muddy puddles coat has lasted two seasons and still looks brand new. I love all the brilliant technical details that ensure kids stay warm, dry and super comfy. A fabulous brand that out performs expectation, outside in the wet and wonderful world." Eleonore Crompton, Deputy Editor, JUNIOR
"A great Heritage brand. I trust this brand, I trust that the product will last and encourage children to be outside in all weathers. In a world of screens, I really champion brands that make it easy for children to be in nature all year round. The design details are faultless. Every detail has been thought about. It’s an investment for parents to buy the perfect waterproof practical jacket and this brand really has thought about everything to ensure the durability, wearability and design of eachthe new season prints too."
