When it comes to creating exquisite clothes for little girls, the designer children’s clothing label Eliane et Lena sets the bar — or <i>barre</i>, as the case may be — impressively high. Cardigans accented with flower appliqués, faux fur coats, flouncy tiered tulle skirts in dreamy pinks and blues, long-sleeve cardigans embellished with scalloped petal-detail collars and cuffs, and ballerina-inspired dresses suggest that Eliane et Luna would make the perfect go-to label for baby princesses and the daughters of discriminating A-listers. Yet Eliane et Lena’s designs eschew stuffiness in favor of subtle humor and playfulness, making its kids’ clothing as approachable as it is glamorous. Founded in 2002, Eliane et Lena also designs clothes for fashion-forward boys and, for women, a collection featuring ultra-feminine dresses, basic leggings and casual accessories.
