I’m sure all of us have been down an Instagram rabbit hole or two before, but hey those are the best ways to stumble upon gems, right? Well I recently ended up on the page of the coolest 7-year old on the planet, Coco. I’ll give you a moment to go search and follow her……..yes, I know, I KNOW! Its not everyday you see a child with the wardrobe of YOUR dreams. Commes des Garcons, Fendi, Gucci, Louis Vuitton x Supreme, the list goes on and on.

Hailing from Harajuku, Japan, this street style star adopted her love of fashion around the age of 3. Her parents are owners of the vintage clothing store Funktique in Tokyo, check it on Instagram @funktiquetokyo, so there is no doubt fashion is in her blood.

As most parents do on IG, Misato, Coco’s mom, began posting photos of her daughter in these fabulous ensembles. Followers took notice and requested Coco have her own account STAT, thus the birth of @coco_pinkprincess. It may seem bizarre for a child so young to have so much…”clout on the gram” for lack of a better term, but her audience loves it! In just two years her follower count has skyrocketed from about 12k last year to 400k+ followers to date.

Being featured in top publications such as Vogue and Elle, Coco exudes style that I wish I had. Her innocent and adorable face can draw just about anyone in! Misato shares with us that her daughter’s focus is building her platform for now, but Coco has dreams of becoming a hairdresser, a chef, or a patissier. Her fashion-conscious looks scream rebellion which keeps followers coming back for more. She’s definitely my newest fashion muse.

Is IKEA Moving Into the Apparel Indusrty? 

Many of you may have seen your Instagram times line peppered with IKEA inspired designs all week. Those of you in the loop know what started this, for those of you who don’t…keep reading. 

Balenciaga recently debuted a blue oversized tote, wildly resembling the IKEA Frakta bag, selling for a whopping $2145. This sent the internet ablaze, as well as tickling folks over at the IKEA headquarters. Johan Holmgren, creative director at Acne, Ikea’s agency partner, tells AdFreak about the moments once news broke.

“I wanted to act fast, so I called Morten Kjaer from Ikea Creative Hub. He loved the idea,” Holmgren says. “The day after the Balenciaga bag was launched, I said, ‘We’ll have the creative work ready within two hours.’ We then went to one of our fashion photographers, Anders Kylberg, and shot the bag in his studio, with that same feeling and lighting as the Balenciaga bag. That same day, we sent the finished work to all markets.”

Balenciaga has yet to confirm anything. 

In addition to the tote popping up on my feed numerous times, I also came across a number of IKEA inspired designs. I mean some work and others just…don’t. But I’m sure we’ll be seeing lots of this yellow and blue fad alll summer.

All in all IKEA will not be making the shift into apparel, however with the power of social media and crafty DIY-ers you’ll be able to purchase some of these nifty items by searching the hashtag #ikeahack.
