Looking at the recent Saint Laurent womenswear for summer 2013 I noticed a familiar style, inspired as new designer at the house Heidi Slimane was by the 70′s YSL look I had seen this before at Pitti Bimbo with the beautiful fabrics and textures of the Lamantine children’s fashion line.
There are a few kids fashion brands that are truly luxe in make, textiles and design and Lamantine is one of them, unsurprisingly the designer Sabrina Vedeo was born in Italy and worked in the fashion business in Milan before she moved to Paris and set up her own collection.
The label has a range of featherweight blouses and tops, sweet little bow tied panties and tailored wool coats and cape style jackets all in a autumnal palette of mustard, chestnut brown, leaf green and gold. It is so stunningl I wanted most of it myself.
It doesn’t have a UK stockist yet but sells through Barneys in the USA and many chic children’s boutiques in Europe.
