Brands to watch in 2018
Have you heard about Barn of Monkeys?
Barn of Monkeys is a Portuguese brand with solid social and cultural values, thought for children and teenagers with ages between 2 and 16, with a promise to last a lifetime.
Their team is composed by skilled professionals that have been working with world-renowned fashion brands for 15 years and then decided to create a brand so unique that would speak the language of the new generation while engaging the parents as well.
The production is exclusively made in Portugal, with a strong investment in quality in order to please a target audience with medium-high purchasing power and sell online, to retailers and department stores all over the world. They give the utmost importance to quality and excellence, artistry and eco-responsibility. For that reason, they assure that every garment displays a unique design and exclusive print and is produced with the ultimate sustainable techniques, reducing the harm caused on the environment.
They’re launching their first ever collection – Demand the Impossible ss18 very soon! The production will be entirely manufactured with nothing but the best fabrics, made of the highest quality 100% organic fibres, duly certified with GOTS and SMETA.

Demand the Impossible is a throwback from one of Jules Verne’s most celebrated novels – Around the World in 80 Days – one of his many stories from les Voyages Extraordinaires. The storyline is about Phileas Fogg, a rich English man living in London, who engaged in a journey around the globe in order to win a wager of £20.000 from his fellow members of the Reform Club.
Sophisticated and minimalistic, Demand the Impossible focuses on three primary stages: the first while flying, the second while sailing and a third while travelling on ground. The collection shares this itinerary, using a carefully thought palette of colours inspired on each stage of the journey: earth, sea and air. As we travel across the sky and seas, we stumble upon the immensity of tones of blue that, at the end of the day, set on a beautiful palette of rose and yellow. Orange, yellowish green and earthy tones, blend together to create harmony out of an exciting and a sophisticated collection.
And just like Man seems to have a special ability to adapt to new environments while travelling, some of Demand the Impossible’s key items are versatile to the point of flattering both genders. After several brainstorms, the monkeys decided it would be best to develop a kind of neutral design in which both boys and girls would feel comfortable and attuned, without overlooking a few girlish and boyish designs as well. The goal is solve everyday life family issues, while trying to increase the apparels’ life span and usability, creating the ritual of sharing special garments amongst children aged 2 to 16, passing them from brothers to sisters.
