Last week I was invited to view the latest collaboration between Bugaboo and Diesel. This is the third collaboration between the two companies. The first was Bugaboo By Diesel Military was the partnership, the military-inspired Bugaboo Cameleon³ by Diesel comes in a dark green anodized chassis and is complemented by an all-over green canvas and great details and made famous by one Kim Kardashian !
The second, Bugaboo By Diesel Denim it represented Diesel’s denim heritage. The Bugaboo Buffalo by Diesel and the tailored fabric set for The Bugaboo Donkey feature a washed and specially treated denim that is effortlessly stylish like your favourite pair of Diesel jeans.
Bugaboo Strollers have always knocked it out of the ball park when it comes to practicality and functionality. I was a fan even before I had my two boys. The strollers were designed for day to day use in all sorts of terrain and integrated into our crazy lifestyles and outdoor activities. Believe me we truly tested their durability on every family vacation with baggage handlers.
Bugaboo didn’t plaster their collections with cute animals their strollers were made with the fashionista in mind. The ladies who didn’t want to loose their fashion edge just because they were becoming moms.
In 2007, I was expecting my first child and that is when I purchased my Bugaboo Cameleon stroller. It was bright red and had all the bells and whistle that go with it. I loved the easy movement,the one hand steering and how the stroller grew with our baby from different ages thanks to their versatile accessories. It was a MUST have for me and really I’m 8 months pregnant hormonal and huge was my husband really going to challenge me on this decision? I think not!
The limited Bugaboo by Diesel Rock Collection takes fashionable baby gear to the next level and worth every penny. At first glance I can’t help but notice how edgy yet stylish the stroller was even dad’s would fancy it!
The wax coated fabric and leather look completes the trendy look that makes this stroller stand out in any crowd! It will bring out the rocker in you (all you need is your leather jacket and shades). The fabric is easy to clean with a baby wipe or wet wash cloth.
Diesel’s Rebellious touch: Tattoo Slogan Diesel art work on the backrest featured the famous Diesel slogan“ONLY THE BRAVE”. Diesel completes the look with wheel caps and grey/silver coloured function buttons.
The stroller also has a rock inspired Foot muff .
The five point harness is even easier to access and use with one touch snap. Another feature I liked was the new and improved extendable sun canopy. It gives much more coverage to baby and the built in cut out vents on either side give a nice air flow within the stroller.
There is no shortage of accessories that you can purchase for your Bugaboo stroller…..
If you plan to travel with your Bugaboo Stroller they have made it really easy with the newly designed travel case. An assortment of cozy blankets to snuggle up with and a fashionable diaper bag even dad wouldn’t mind toting around town with. It is made out of faded wash denim with leather contrasting black patches and it also features functional inner and outer pockets and copper zippers in contrast. (Looks so good I might just pick one up!)
If you have a toddler you may be interested in the wheel board that clips onto your stroller either on the left or right side and NOW comes with a seat for the tired sibling. I can’t forget the new born pram body that is easy to carry and very light weight. My babies slept in this for the first month.
Not to be out done Bugaboo Cameleon Classic + Collection has launched an upscale version. This was my stroller, it combines elegance and sophistication for a timeless look. We used it for seven years and it still looks brand new.
Bugaboo is launching a year long initiative called “The One” to celebrate the Bugaboo Cameleon. Bugaboo will share milestone brand stories, exclusive content on the brand’s online lifestyle magazine, The Journal, and feature families and friends who have all loved the Bugaboo Cameleon.
They have also added two new colours, a contemporary touch with Grey Melange ( they plan to have a full line of accessories in 2016 ) and Navy Blue. A “faux leather” handlebar and an off-white quilted interior lining on the extendable sun canopy, bassinet mattress and apron.
If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing I would continue with the Bugaboo brand. Remember when choosing a stroller it is no longer just a transportation device to carry your infant. It is an extension of your own personality and style.
