Back to School Supplies: From School Shoes to Book Bags

Feature: Quick Read
Words by Abigail Gurney-Read

Like Christmas, the first day of school seems to come around sooner every year. Blink in June, and suddenly it’s August – and the need for fresh school coats, shoes, and classroom supplies is topping the agenda. While their uniform is a no-brainer, the things surrounding it require some thought. So, pens at the ready. Class is in session.

Good Morning

After several glorious weeks without an alarm, the first day of school can be a wake-up call in every sense. With a solid night’s sleep, bolstered by comfortable nightwear and their favourite cuddly friends, little scholars will enjoy the best possible start to a new term.

Breakfast Time

Full bellies make for busy brains. Fuel their learning with a delicious, balanced breakfast courtesy of The Food Halls. How about a slice of freshly baked Harrods sourdough, toasted and topped with fruity marmalade or aromatic honey? Or a soft-boiled egg with buttery soldiers, ready for dipping. We’ll take one of each.

School Run

Smart coats, roomy bags – though requisite for school, such pieces offer an opportunity for little students to express their personalities. A customisable Becco Bags backpack or Gucci Kids x The Jetsons tote is just the right balance of practicality and playfulness, while the likes of Thom Browne and Burberry Kids offer pieces that A+ the back-to-school assignment.

Science is yet to find anything that grows faster than a child’s feet – making a new pair of school shoes an inevitable requirement. Policy may limit them to classic black footwear, but with Christian Louboutin Kids, Lelli Kelly, and The Eugens offering such variety, your little one(s) will be spoilt for choice.

Homework Club

Homework needn’t be a chore, it just takes some fine-tuning. Share your WFH routine with the next generation – swap restrictive uniforms for comfortable loungewear, and encourage self-guided study with interactive, educational toys that help them learn in their own style.

School’s Out

It’s been a wild ride – they deserve to let loose. Bright, poppy casuals counteract the structure of their nine-to-three, while outdoor toys make a playground of your back garden. As for you? Go ahead and put your feet up. It all starts again on Monday.
