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."
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."

Here you will find some of the biggest and best baby brands in childrenswear; such as Petit Bateau, Mayoral and Tartine et Chocolat.
Children are known for their appreciation of dirt, popsicles and boogers — less so for fancy fashion items like $865 embroidered Gucci sweaters or $390 studded Fendi sandals. And yet both brands offer sizes as small as 0-3 months, as well as full collections that run the gamut from onesies to mini leather moto jackets. In fact, just about every major luxury brand in 2017 has an offshoot line of apparel and accessories scaled down for the 12-and-under set: Dolce and Gabbana's floral-printed dresses are a hit with the mommy-and-me shopper, Moncler's Enfant collection has fur-trimmed snowsuits for tots in colder climates and Adidas's Yeezy Boosts come in infant sizes that are only slightly easier to cop than their adult counterparts. Elie Saab even went so far as to show matching gowns for children on his Fall 2016 couture runway in Paris last July.
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."
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.)

As Jasmin grows, Pukay stretches out the lifespan of her wardrobe with some creative styling. "A lot of the pants, I'll make them little capris," she says. "Or the shirts with the ruffles around the neck, even though they might be a smaller size, I'll still style them under cardigans. I feel like we've been getting really good use out of the clothing." She's willing to spend more for quality if it means the pieces will last, she says, and she hopes to hold on to the baby clothes as keepsakes to pass on to her kids some day.
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!
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.
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. 

Bonpoint was founded in 1975 as a couture house for children, and although the brand now owns and operates more than 110 boutiques worldwide and sales are estimated at around €100 million, or around $114 million per year, it still maintains a Paris atelier and shows a couture collection (which, according to the FT, accounts for about 10 percent of sales) twice a year. Along with Baby Dior, which opened the doors to its first Paris boutique in 1967 — Princess Grace of Monaco cut the inaugural ribbon — the brand was a pioneer in the field, and with its exclusive focus on childrenswear, it has since developed a reputation for impeccable fit and attention to detail, eschewing trendiness in favor of timeless design. This, of course, doesn't come cheap: A smocked floral baby romper, for example, costs $235, while a leather varsity jacket in sizes up to 12 years will set you back $1,665 (Pukay, for one, says she tries to wait until pieces go on sale to shop).

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.

The company was founded in 1952 by Sybil Harriman as a shop selling children’s clothes in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.[2] She and her husband Rene had previously lived in Vienna but relocated to the UK after the birth of their 6th child.[3] Rene was a jazz pianist and Sybil ran a sewing circle for women until she established Childrensalon as a workroom at her house.[3] There, she pleated, smocked and even remade old fabrics into clothes for her children.[3] In April 2017, Childrensalon launched Petit Outlet site[4][5]

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!

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.
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.

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.
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?
Trust in top-class quality and you can be sure that your offspring is always dressed accordingly. If you want to impart a good dress sense and a proper style permanently to your daughter or your son, it is best, if you start early in doing so. The designers use high-quality and sometimes exotic materials, so that your child will develop a feeling for the exceptional things at an early stage. The haptic and the wearability of children’s fashion speak for themselves. Instead of buying clothes off the peg, which sometimes radiates a certain uniformity, you are buying the best thing possible for your offspring with designer children’s fashion. We are covered in clothes all day every day, thus it should be as good as possible.

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."

From classic designs to new, eye catching details, as a kid’s designer brand Marie-Chantal has something to offer for every occasion. Featuring exclusive additions and prints as well as high-end soft and comfortable fabrics, our boutique clothing range has something to suit all your little ones. Including princess dresses, formal wear and adorable newborn onesies, Marie-Chantal’s timeless designs are the perfect balance of style and comfort.


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.
