Relax Baby Be Cool

Uniting countries, cultures and great minds - Dedicated to all the timeless eccentrics. 'relax baby be cool' is a fashion and lifestyle brand dedicated to all the timeless eccentrics. With a sense of solidarity amongst countries, cultures and passionate visionaries, it's a desire to celebrate the legacy of ancient traditions and historical arts.

Established by Estonian-born mother and daughter creative duo, the upcoming label fuses an assortment of colours and themes inspired by the hidden corners of the World, a collaboration between textile laborers that go back generations, enthusiastic futurists and invaluable helping hands.

Tailor-made, using only high-quality fabrics and mixing them with materials that carry in them stories and legends, emphasizing the importance and the history behind them, all of the pieces are accompanied by the mythical tales portraying the beliefs, the traditions and the way of life of the lost generations.

Beautiful, striking hues and atypical patterns are accentuated through relaxed silhouettes, no-fuss cuts, and timeless clean Northern lines reflecting the label’s aesthetics.

Drawing inspiration from old-school glamour, powerful historical figures, androgynous styles, the Queens and Kings of all times and reminiscing about the times when dressing up was a culture, craftmanship was the highest skill and respect towards culture and art was common sense.

It is timeless class with an edge. dedicated to the curious and the wild, the attention seekers and culture keepers, the bold and the brave.

A little old fashioned, maybe, but then again, so are we. And we are on a mission to keeping these values alive.

All collections are handmade, exclusive and limited due to a definite amount of each print and fabric.

From the henna hands in the bright stalls of Jakarta, in the torn mochila over Singapore and Amsterdam, through the blue eyes of relentless seas with Estonian roots of knowledge and experience, sparked from a situation, ironed with love, touched by the hands of a little magic, and pushed by the mountain.

Her African heritage plays a big part of her design,“as a child, I’ve always opted for African fabric when creating, there’s just something about African prints that I’m fascinated by, it is so unique and I think that’s what makes me stand out from other designers.”

With the beautiful and vibrant aesthetic of the Ankara fabric forming the bases for all her pieces making it both versatile and fashionable. And a true expression of her African heritage and culture bringing to life the eye popping colors and diversity of the ever changing African landscape.

“I want those wearing my pieces to feel connected to their roots, empowered and proud of where they are from”
