Spring ’17 brings head-to-toe coordination in pint-sized posh.
Tiny tots will be nothing short of trés chic in new brand Bébé Sweeny’s collection of eloquent baby garments and coordinating accessories, including pacifier clips, bibs, swaddles and bunting bags. The Spring ’17 girls’ collection draws inspiration from the city of Grasse on the French Riviera, translated in pearls, rhinestones and embroidered tulle in romantic shades of pink, cream and silver. For boys, the focus is “l’Homme Parisien,” donning peach-finish cotton and poplin emblazoned with edgy details like studs, leather and chest badges. Available in sizes newborn to 4 years, wholesale prices range from $10 to $40. www.bebesweeny.com
With a background as a fabric designer and colorist in Seoul, Moque Founder Hyojung Ahn has always appreciated high-end style. However, when Ahn became a mom, she found it difficult to find children’s clothing that aligned with her sophisticated taste. “My focus for childrenswear is in the fabric, silhouette and fit,” she explains. “It was extremely difficult to find all three and that is how Moque started.” Moque—a portmanteau of the words “modern” and “unique”—is a New York City-based brand that designs fun fabrics in distinctive silhouettes, like shift dresses and oversized blouses for girls and leather jackets and contrast-collared shirts for boys. Available in a palette of playful hues from primaries to pastels, the collection wholesales from $20 to $80 and comes in sizes 2T to 16Y. www.moque.us
Dutch brand nOeser (meaning “be nutty, be nice” in Dutch) debuted its Spring ’17 collection “Big Fish, Little Fish” at Playtime New York in July. The organic, European-made line drew inspiration from the sea with a collection overflowing with turtles, sharks and stingrays across a palette of ocean blue, coral pink and shark gray hues. The collection is comprised of a large assortment of styles, including breezy summer dresses and chic jumpsuits to collared rompers and balloon shorts. nOeser also offers an array of “mix-and-match” options, allowing kids to easily combine prints for an edgy urban look or round out an oufit with simply beautiful basics. The collection is available from size newborn to 5 years with suggested retail prices of $15 to $61. www.noeser.eu/en
