My Favorite Things

Why should only adults get to wear clothes that adequately reflect their complex inner-selves? It’s a conundrum that Swedish illustrator Cassandra Rhodin set out to solve, in 2006, when she launched the childrenswear brand Mini Rodini. Leveraging her celebrated, whimsical artwork, Rhodin created a line of high-quality clothing and accessories that’s playful yet sophisticated—as well as rooted in sustainability. It’s a brand that both parents and kids can easily get behind. As its creative director, Rhodin designs, hand prints, photographs, and art-directs every season’s campaign. Herewith, she spotlights what she’s loving right now.

Roses Candle

“This candle scent reminds me of my childhood summer at Fårö—also known as the home of Ingmar Bergman—where we had a wild climbing-rose bush outside our stone family home.”

Vase by Anna-Lisa Thomson

“I’ve been collecting Ekeby vases for years. They’re produced in Sweden and I love the way everything Anna-Lisa Thomson designs is inspired by nature.”

“I never travel without this in my bag, as I’m always capturing life through its lens and, technically, it’s just a really great camera.”

Mirto Liqueur

“This liqueur is a traditional drink in Sardinia originating from the myrtle plant. It’s not easy to find, but whenever I come across it I always buy a bottle.”
