Marrakech has always had a major influence on style and fashion.

From the colour palettes to the textures and silhouettes, the culture and design of this Arabian city features regularly on the fashion week catwalks and was a major influence in the work of the late Yves Saint Laurent.

Marrakech itself is any fashionista’s shopping dream! The city is home the world’s most famous Labyrinth of souks, where you can haggle on the finest leather goods, beautiful slippers and the most wonderful jewels, plus so much more.

‘Marrakech Style’ is one 2016 hottest trends and in celebration of this city and its culture, the luxe kids online retailer, Melijoe, has curated a stunning collection of designer pieces that channel Moroccan influences.

The trend is most evident in this season’s Chloe collection. The brand’s founder, Gaby Agian, hails from North Africa and the Chloe kids range is awash with bohemian styles, romantic fabrics and earthy tones.

Other key trends in this season’s collection is the use of bird prints, kohl-esque illustrations and the symbol of luck known as the ‘Eye of the Talisman’.

So head to Melijoe’s very own bustling Bazaar, where you can discover these Arabian-inspired gems.

I’ve picked out a few of my personal faves below.
