For the little ones, entering a new grade is like entering a new adventure. A big step that’s better when they feel confident in their outfits. That’s why we teamed up with the iconic online family store and curated a Back to School capsule collection, dedicated to this exciting time of the year.

In Gray Label’s core colours Nearly Black, Mustard and Vintage Pink,
the Back to School capsule collection features baseball caps, backpacks, endless scarfs, socks, tights and sneakers. See how the Swedish based Katya Sinka, mother of 3 and photographer, combines the easy additions for school-time and beyond.


1/ Please tell us a bit about yourself?

My name is Katya, I live in Sweden with my husband and our 3 kids. Twins Leo and Olivia 5 y old and Ella 2 years old. We have a dog Rune as well. Originally I’m from Russia, Siberia but moved to Sweden in 2013 becoz of LOVE :) I am working as a private and commercial photographer. My passion is photographing clothing brands.

2/ What does a typical Swedish summer holiday look like? Do you have tips for families wanting to spend their holidays there? 

We spent most of the time near the sea ( if it’s good weather) Climate is not so very positive in Sweden haha. We have a small boat, we love fishing, we love picking berries and mushrooms. 

3/ As a mom of three how do you prepare for the new school year ahead?

Well, my kids will start school in 1 year so we are not stressing with school preparations yet. I use to shop all new winter collections in august so kids can start new year at daycare on style :)

4/ What is your favourite piece from the collection?

I love the caps and backpacks! Leo is in love with the shoes.

Thanks Katya, so wonderful to hear from you.
