Wynken is a unisex brand from London creating childrenswear from 2 to 11 years. Elbe Lealman established Wynken in 2014 after becoming a mother. Her idea was to produce contemporary and creative clothing for modern kids with strong design and quality at its core that would appeal to both the young minds of the wearer and those of their parents.
Wynken is stock in independent boutiques in over 20 countries worldwide and recently won the 2019 Milk Magazine Award for Best Fashion Collection.
Autumn Winter 2018 collection entitled Peace, Love, Unity and Having Fun is inspired by the emerging New York hip hop scene of the 1980s and its founders. A particular inspiration was the seminal street photography of Jamel Shabazz.
Shabazz has taken photos for over 40 years with some of his most well known work documenting youth culture and social issues on the streets and subways of New York. It’s this work that captured the beginnings of a new era in fashion where b-boys and b-girls created their own street style.
