Hanna Looks

It All Started with a Stripe...

There's nothing more classic than a baby in stripes, especially if you're from Sweden where babies are often seen swathed in stripes head-to-toe. Over thirty years ago Hanna Andersson was launched with a simple collection of striped baby garments. Recently we had the pleasure of combing through our oldest archives in search of inspiration for our Bright Baby Basics collection, a line of based off of our original Hannas.

Forgive us for being nostalgic, but we just had to share a few of our favorite images from our very first catalogs, all of which were photographed in Sweden.


So cute right? There's nothing quite as timeless as babies and stripes. You can shop our new Bright Baby Basics collection here. Everything in the line is made with 100% organic cotton and is Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified, which means each garment is tested down to the very last thread for over 100 harmful substances using strict European certification standards.  

Holiday Family Dressing: A Hanna Guide

Family holiday dressing is such a special thing. Whether you're getting all dressed up to take your family photos, going to your neighbor's Christmas party or heading over to grandma's house for a special dinner, it feels so nice (and right!) to make the effort and get dressed up a little differently.

In the past we've always done a very matchy-matchy look (it's just so sweet and fun!). This year however, we felt inspired to take a slightly more modern approach to the concept of family dressing for the holidays. We designed our family collections to work as looks that coordinate and compliment each other but don't necessarily match completely. But to be honest...there is still definitely some matching in here as well. We just can't help ourselves!

Below are some of our favorite Hanna holiday collections for family dressing this year. Take a peek!

Merry & Bright:

Here we have cozy fabrics and crisp color combos that work together to make this group super fun and seasonal without feeling overly Christmas-y.

Norse Star Holiday

Nordic heritage takes center stage with traditional knitwear patterning on a beautiful navy base with deep orange trimming, rustic browns and cream accents.

Snowy in Sweden

Snowy Sweden Family Collection  by Hanna Andersson

Our most traditional grouping of holiday knitwear featuring a classic snowflake pattern in Christmas-ready colors.

Icelandic Fair Isle Two Ways

Anchored by cozy grey knits, the bright pops of color make this a more modern take on Fair Isle that still stays true to the original patterning.

The Village Collection

The Village Family Collection  by Hanna Andersson

A European-inspired mix of weighty knits and old world craft detailing in a rich color palette with a few fun mix-it-up prints.
