At Saks, Fashion Director Roopal Patel says that while classic labels like Burberry are consistently strong performers, they're seeing that customers are increasingly interested in brands that offer novelty items and opportunities for "mommy-and-me" dressing. Gucci, in particular, has been a standout: "Specifically some of the statement pieces, like the more iconic Gucci emojis or snakes, are trending really well within childrenswear," she says. At Saks's new Brookfield Place location in downtown New York City, the kids' pieces are sold alongside the women's and men's clothing in the brand's in-store boutique, a relatively novel strategy for the retailer.
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.

For herself, she says she mostly shops at Zara for clothing, and splurges only on handbags and shoes. "When I go to the store, I first shop for my kids, then for myself," she says. "I'm one of those moms, you know? When I came across Bonpoint, I wasn't even pregnant. I was just walking down Rodeo [Drive in LA], and I saw these beautiful clothes. I've always had love for kids clothing, and I fell in love with the brand, so when I was pregnant, I knew exactly where to start buying my stuff. When I tested positive, the first thing I did was go to Bonpoint."

For parents who may not be able to afford the four- and five-figure price tags of Gucci's grown-up lines, the kids' offerings provide a somewhat more affordable way to take part in the trend by proxy. Childrenswear, says Maisonette's Mendoza, "is an entry price point for luxury. You may not buy a $10,000 Dolce and Gabbana dress for yourself, but you might buy a $200 Dolce and Gabbana dress for your child and have that same experience."
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 read some some of the reviews below. I cant believe for one minute they are real or a competitor trying to to customers off. I have been a genuine customer of children salon for years. ive ordered from childspaly also. Even though i like both companies. Ive found children salon much better to order so i stick to them. Maybe because the other site does not offer paypal I had one issue with the colour running on the shirt and they resolved it and refunded me. This was a genuine dye problem and they fixed it immediately. The rep was so considerate and supportive. So i disagree with the customers below that said they do not help. This is not true. As a seller they have to look at the over all comments. If you have size issues then you need to ensure it is tried for fit only.Labels not removed and returned in original condition. If signs of wear then they cant refund. So it is the buyers responsibility to take care when tying on goods and return that as the seller sent. If there is a genuine manufacturing fault then they resolve it asap. But the fit cannot be guaranteed as you buy it online and not tried on. Even if going of the measurements it cannot be guaranteed. So as a buyer you need to take care and attention when purchasing. Further to this the company cannot be held responsible if the item is returned in poor condition. This company is fast and reliable and i will pick them over selfridges and any other high street designer shop. I will go into the shop and come back out and say i will get it from children salon. I trust them completely. may be they are nice to be as i never need to contact them ever. Only on 3 occasions i contacted and all issues were resolved. as a buyer please check you only try on for fit. Do not remove labels and return in original condition. Please note once it is worn and returned in not the same condition it is not saleable as it is then second hand. Designer clothes cost a lot and the company should not be held responsible if the customer did not check prior to starting to wear, you cant wear for a whole day and expect to return it the next day. Keep up the good work children salon and i will be back as i totally see you are the best in service, styles and delivery for children design clothes.
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.

“ Today we received the shoes, we are pleased to madness, and what a smell of the shoes (Mini Melissa). My daughter doesn't want to take them off, the size is a little too big but should be nice for the summer. The quality is excellent. Thank you so much, I will now be ordering from you and will promote to my friends, we are satisfied with everything. Сегодня получили туфельки, рады до безумия, а какой запах. Дочка не снимает, размер чуть великоват но и хорошо летом будет ходить. Качество отличное. Огромное вам спасибо, буду теперь с вами сотрудничать и рекламировать знакомым, всем очень довольны. Спасибо за подарочек - конфетки. ”


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."
Gifting, too, plays an outsize role in the childrenswear market. "While we may not buy our kids a $200 to $400 dress on a regular basis, grandparents, aunts, the people who are in your lives who want to buy for your kids often like to spend a little bit more on that and give them a special occasion dress," says Mendoza, reasoning that since "documenting every second of your child's life is so implicit in people's lives these days," it makes sense that people may feel better about splurging on pieces for occasions like holidays and birthdays.

This is also an area where a rapid growth spurt can actually work in parents' favor. "If you buy it one season and the next season they've grown out of it, it's still considered an in-season item," she explains. "If you were to go and sell it, you will see a good return on the item." Not every typical resale rule applies to childrenswear, though: "Designer handbags are our bread and butter for women's," she says, "[but] for children's, it's not even on the map. It's a tiny piece of our business."

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.

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.

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.)
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.
