For now, prospective sellers can be savvy about what they buy by keeping resale value in mind. "In the resale business, you'll see a higher return on these classic, timeless investment pieces that never go out of style, like a Burberry or Moncler jacket, or something super on-trend right now, like Gucci — everyone wants Gucci," says Locker. "We see completely what's happening in women's mirrored in children's."

Paris-based Vestiaire Collective currently has more than 28,000 kids' items listed — a sizable number, though only a fraction of the 600,000 items on the site at any given time. Outerwear is the site's top-performing children's category in terms of sales, according to U.S. curator Sydney Locker, with items like a Gucci shearling-lined embroidered denim jacket ($1,141.20), Baby Dior coat ($741.78) and Moncler snowsuit ($707.54) filling the upper end of the price range. More than 50 percent of the site's children's business is in France — a much greater share than in other categories, but Locker says she expects this to shift as the resale industry grows and awareness increases globally. 

This is my favourite online shop for clothes for my baby girl. Addicted to browsing their website! The clothes and accessories are out of this world. They are so unique and stylish. The also have many great items in outlet. I have ordered now four times from their website and have never disappointed with their fast delivery, beautifully wrapped packages!


Ordered my daughter a Guess handbag for her birthday from Childrensalon. The bag is clearly faulty a...s after only having it 7 weeks, using it a maximum of 5 times and storing it in the dust bag when not in use, red piping has come away in identical places on opposite sides of the bag. I contacted Childrensalon who have said it needs to be reviewed by the designer as it looks like it’s wear and tear. After me sending photos and proof of my order it is clear the bag is in immaculate condition. There has been no apology from staff for the inconvenience, instead making me feel like it is my daughters fault. I would have expected a much better customer service experience from a supposed reputable and high end company. See More
I ordered a shirt from the children’s salon a month in advance for my sons birthday. The shirt was to be delivered within a few days of purchasing and I never received the package. Never made it to my home but someone signed for it who clearly didn’t stay at my address let alone even had the same name they used a nickname to sign for it. I was in contact with UPS and children’s salon. They opened up an investigation and I still got the run around from both ends of back and forth. After 15 days after the package came up missing they decided to close the investigation which means I still have no shirt and my sons birthday is in 8 days :( this was the worst experience ever as a first time customer as to I didn’t originally want my money back just simply wanted a shirt but there was or of miscommunication between UPS UK and the children’s salon. I work in retail and would never provide horrible customer service as I was served. Now I have to wait for a refund of 3-10 business. I will never be using the children’s salon again
I have ordered from childrensalon three times now, never had a problem. On my last order the givenchy tracksuit only just fitted my 1 year old despite it being size 18 months. I read reviews on here about how difficult getting a refund or exchange was so I was a little reluctant to do so. I paid extra to have DPD pick the clothes from my house instead of the royal mail choice as I felt it would always be tracked. As soon as they recieved my item I had an update, I had an update when they was preparing my item and when they was sending it. I received my new item today all nicely packed and didn’t have any issues. I would 100% recommend this company as I personally have never had a problem, very easy to shop and return items, always been reasonably priced and even have a very good sale on at the moment.

Michele Harriman-Smith, 66, is the CEO of Childrensalon, the luxury childrenswear retailer. The company was founded in 1952 by Michele’s mother, Sybil, as a single boutique in Kent. It is now an online empire with more than 300 staff and customers in more than 160 countries. Since 2012, sales have increased by more than 500%. Harriman-Smith lives with her husband, George, in Tunbridge Wells.
Elsewhere, however, accessories seem to be picking up speed, with many luxury shoe brands — Giuseppe Zanotti, Sophia Webster, Malone Souliers — launching lines for kids who may not have even taken their first steps yet. In the case of Finnish designer Minna Parikka, it's clear to see why the brand extension made sense: Her signature rabbit-ear sneakers, a favorite of Cara Delevingne, Coco Rocha and dozens of other street-style stars, are playful, colorful and about as kid-friendly as you can get (Eva Chen even used a newborn pair to announce her second pregnancy on Instagram). The "Mini" line launched last year, and already it comprises half of the brand's business; the sneakers, which retail from around $156 for baby slippers to $445 for woven metallic low-tops, are available in 20 different countries and at 50 retailers worldwide, including Harrods and Selfridges.
Children's clothes have a different life cycle than their adult counterparts: they're played in, spilled on, stretched, occasionally spit up on and eventually grown out of. While all of the parents I talked to for this story say they shop mass retailers like Zara Kids and Target as well as designer brands, their main complaint was the quality. In some cases, they said, clothes would fall apart before their kids even got the chance to grow out of them. Better-made pieces, at least, can see a second life — whether as a hand-me-down to a younger sibling or a relative, a keepsake to hold onto, a donation or a resale item. Parents today have several options if they choose the latter, thanks to a slew of online designer resale and consignment stores, including Vestiaire Collective, The RealReal and My Kid's Threads.

I would be giving this review 0 other than the stars stopping me.Not impressed ordered a few times before no problems in the past. Sent an item back as the dress was too big to order a smaller size. Had a very very rude email back about the dress smelling different and had it been worn even though the dress had all tags bags etc? Basically withholding my returned monies calls and emails all this whilst away with my family which is pretty disgusting. They clearly didnt see the other email about me ordering a different size? Why would I order a dress send it back worn and then ordered a smaller size?I've never been more insulted in all my life.The customer services needs a retrain ! They should be ashamed and if it wasnt for data protection laws id be posting the insulting email for all to view trust me they would be losing custom!
They've also introduced the brand to a new whole new set of customers. "We have totally reached a new audience with the mini line," says Parikka. "Before, our shoes were mainly for a trendy crowd, and now with the mini we reach customers from 0 to 70 years old. I think our oldest customer has actually been way over 90." After all, who can't appreciate a tiny sneaker with rabbit ears for a tongue and a pom-pom tail?
Musiyevich was born and raised in the Ukraine, where, she says, the options for children's clothing were very limited ("I think we stayed swaddled up until we were almost a year old"). However, as she began to grow, her mom's friend sent the family a few dresses from America. "I remember how special they were to us," she says. "I still have pictures of me wearing them. I wish I could have brought them with me." Mila may not be able to wear her old dresses, but she at least hopes to hold on to some of the pieces her daughter is wearing now for future children, including favorites like cashmere rompers by Bonpoint and Oscar et Valentine, Dolce and Gabbana's rose-print dresses and rompers, and Belle Enfant's plush faux-fur vests.
This isn't accidental: "I think luxury means a different thing in the kids world," says Mendoza. "For us, luxury can be a $12 wooden toy that's coming from Switzerland, but it's $12. It's really not about price point. It's about quality and it's about how differentiated it is and the materials." When it comes to parents of young kids today, says Ward Durrett, "your kids are kind of an extension of yourself. So when you're thinking about buying a high chair for your apartment, you're going to buy something that matches with your post-modern aesthetic, that isn't necessarily a plastic, colorful, traditional high chair." And, by that token, when you buy them a hoodie for pre-school, it's going to be organic cotton, on-trend, and thoroughly Instagrammable.

For dressier occasions, Aquazzura's kids' line, which launched in December, offers miniaturized versions of the brand's ultra-popular, lace-up flats and fringed sandals at $240 to $575 a pop. Ward Durrett got a pair as a gift and says her 3-year-old daughter, Grace, wears them as play shoes. "I probably shouldn't let her do that," she laughs, "but you know, that's the point — you can't be too precious about these things. They're totally scuffed up and worn, but she loves them and feels like a princess in them, and she chooses to wear them over every pair of shoes that I buy her." 

Globally, the childrenswear market is outpacing both womenswear and menswear, growing 5 percent in current value terms in 2016 to $203.4 billion, according to Euromonitor. Designer childrenswear is only a small portion of the total industry at $5.89 billion, but the research house cites trends that suggest it could grow. For instance, parents today tend to have fewer children later in life, at a time when many have more disposable income, and fashion trends play an ever-greater role in influencing what — and how often — they purchase.

While generations past may not have commemorated monthly baby milestones on Instagram, the idea of dressing kids up in their nicest clothes to show them off in public is a fairly traditional one. Yuliya Pugach, a mom of three girls, ages 4, 3 and 16 months, in Columbus, Ohio, says she's happy to spend more on dressy pieces for daughters to wear for church on Sundays. Dresses by Burberry or Chloé with little Louis Vuitton purses to hold their snacks (her husband bought one for each of them as a gift) help make up their collections. "I love investing in their church clothes because that's when I feel they should look their very best," she says. But while you might think that having three daughters would mean you could rely on hand-me-downs, Pugach says that's not always the case. "They do get some things, like the nicer designer clothes that aren't stained yet, but not as much as people would expect," she explains. "When I was pregnant with my second and third daughters, everyone always told me how lucky I was that they can wear hand-me-downs and save me a lot of money, but a lot of their clothes don't stand the test of time." The Burberry dresses she's bought are her favorite, she says, because they've held up the best; the family also has matching swimsuits by the brand.
Yelena Pukay, an Oregon-based personal shopper and mother of four, has amassed an Instagram following of more than 34,000 thanks to her snaps of her youngest daughter Jasmin's daily outfits (her other kids make appearances too, but the baby is the star of the feed). At nine months old, Jasmin's wardrobe includes a seemingly endless collection of cashmere cardigans and rompers, which Pukay buys mostly from Parisian brands like Oscar et Valentine and Bonpoint, a Moncler puffer bought on sale, and, along with her sisters, a Dolce and Gabbana swimsuit printed with banana leaves. Her signature accessory — if a baby can have such a thing — is a cashmere pom-pom hat, many versions of which are documented on her feed, and which Pukay says women constantly ask her about (many of Jasmin's are by British brand Mi Loves and retail for £26, or about $34).
Like every other mother I spoke to, Musiyevich does most of her shopping for her daughter online (Rochester, New York, where she lives, doesn't have any high-end baby boutiques) and she says she often discovers brands through Instagram, including several from Europe that have become some of her favorites. At her age, she says, Mila doesn't yet have any strong opinions about what she wears. Even headbands, a notoriously tricky sell amongst the 2-and-under crowd, are left on undisturbed, leaving Musiyevich free to play dress-up to her heart's content.
While a rep for Gucci declined to comment on sales of childrenswear specifically, the brand reported record sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2017, jumping 48.3 percent to €1.35 billion euros, or $1.44 billion. And if creative director Alessandro Michele manages to keep up the fervor among his adult customers, the children's category should be well-positioned to keep pace. "If mom is buying a lot of Gucci, chances are, the little one is going to be dressed in a lot of Gucci as well," reasons Patel.
I was happy with this company until I had problem with one of the purchased item. It irritated my daughters neck and left red marks on her chin. I have contacted Childrensalon and explained this item is not suitable for young children. They complete ignored that this item might be dangerous and responded in a very patronising manner. To keep the story short they did nothing about it and were really rude. It's one of these companies who just wants your money.
The company's impressive performance has achieved many awards for 2018 including a place in the Sunday Times Fast Track 100, theInternational Track 200, and the Profit Track 100. These accolades follow three PayPal and Drapers Etail awards as well as a recurring feature in the London Stock Exchange"1000 Companies to Inspire Britain". We are also extremely proud to be a Living Wage Employer and to have gained a Best Companies 2* Outstanding Accreditation. In 2018 Childrensalon was ranked #45 in the Sunday Times Top 100 Companies to Work For. 
So I was really apprehensive at first, seemed too good to be true, but the items shipped and arrived within like 6 days and everything was of good quality and really nice! I love Burberry and use to only buy from the official site but this place has got me hooked! I'm in Texas in the USA and will definitely be shopping with them again! (DKNY size 14/16 runs a tad small compared to Target but good quality. Only ordered a loose shirt and leggings.)
