I came across Neige last year while reading a post on Design Mom. I fell immediately in love with their inventory. They create some of the most beautiful children's clothing I have ever seen. Not your ordinary clothier.
You MUST go to their website and drool over their clothing and photos as I have. Each season, I look forward to seeing their newest lookbook and long for each and every stylish piece.
They have items for girls, boys and babies from ages infant to preteen. I wish I could dress my daughter in Neige every school day.
Neige was born out of Adrienne Catrina’s unique vision of sophistication and style in children’s wear.
The French word for “snow”, neige was chosen to designate the collection for its connotations of purity, innocence and sophisticated playfulness.
Catrina’s erudite eye and design philosophy were honed during her years as an assistant designer to preeminent ready-to-wear and bridal designer Vera Wang, for whom she worked upon graduation from Parsons School of Design, until 2003, when she moved to Southern California with her husband.
Upon becoming a mother, Catrina was surprised by the void in the children’s wear market for clothing that is both modern and age-appropriate.
“All too often, children’s clothes are ‘decorated’ and overwrought with frills, patches, colors, and patterns. Our clothes are designed with tremendous respect for both children themselves, and to style.”
For children, comfort is the yardstick, and each piece on the collection is conceived with this in mind. What separates Neige, meanwhile, is that each piece is designed with an intense dedication to quality and style.
This unique philosophy and look has garnered Neige an immense following among retailers and editors alike.
Neige has been featured in publications such as Cookie Magazine, Parents Magazine, Child Magazine, Harper's Bazaar, Martha Stewart Weddings, Mom and Baby Magazine, among many others.
Cornel and Adrienne Catrina, the parents of two, believe it is possible to improve the lives of children. This belief is put in to action as the company sponsors, donates, and participates in charitable events for children. See participating events here.
