LONDON — Having focused until now on European lifestyle brands, the London-based fund Vaultier7 has expanded its reach, moving into the U.S. market and the health and wellness space for its latest investment, in the brand Little Spoon.
Principals of Vaultier7, Anna Sweeting and Montse Suarez, said they were drawn to Little Spoon, a fresh, organic baby food company that delivers directly to consumers, for a variety of reasons, such as the brand’s core values, its democratic appeal, direct-to-consumer engagement with a distinct point of view, and viral marketing model that offers babies and small children nutritious food.

“Sand, summer, sea,” is how designer Sarah Staudinger describes of the beginnings of her latest collection for Staud, writes @elmercer.
Summer was encapsulated through an array of adorable picnic inspired garb in poppy hues like tablecloth gingham compact knit playsuits and matching sets and plenty of crudite-emblazoned offerings. The best foodie-looks included a salad printed waffle minidress with matching cardigan or a matching neon green knit set with fringe made of mini glass lemons (and matching croakies). #wwdfashion
