Some of the best pieces for the little ones in stores now
For: Show-stopping appearance making
Sretsis' line for young girls, Little Sister, goes Madonna in season. Inspired by mixtapes, 70s disco and 80s funk, the usual princess multi-tiered dresses get showbiz razzle dazzle, decked with glitter patches and lightning motifs. Once styled with denim, leather jackets and the disco ball bag, the little miss is definitely looking concert-ready. Besides celebrating their one-year anniversary, the brand also launches their "Classic Collection" on Mother's Day. After their success with Victorian-inspired dresses for girls between the ages of two and 10, newborns and infants can be dressed in Little Sister's duds, too. Pinafores, bonnets, aprons, slippers and bibs in white and light blue are among the pieces you can buy, along with a miniature dollhouse and bunny rugs, which would add cuteness to any room. Visit Little Sister at Central Chidlom.
For: Out and about
The Armani Junior autumn/winter collection toes a fine line between elegant and active. Little girls can choose from a range that takes fairytales and weaves them onto the sleeves, with the swan being a recurring motif appearing on sweaters, hoodies and overalls. On the boys' side, graphics and the brand's logo are the main thread, with shirts and washed denim flaunting the eponymous brand logo. Still, it doesn't go overboard and the clothes are simple and sophisticated enough for a day out when you want the young ones to look presentable. Newborn gift-packs are also available, if you're looking for an all-inclusive gift for a family with a new arrival. The sleepsuits and rompers are amusingly inspired by the grown-up's collections, coming in soft colours like light blue, soft pink and natural beige. Find Armani Junior at Central Chidlom.
For: Fun in the Sun
If you're looking for sunglasses for children, Izipizi's won't break the bank. Made with polarised lenses, their selections from the Sun Baby & Kids offers 100% UV ray protection. The frame is made of polymer, which is created from natural rubber, all of which makes the glasses flexible and easy to return to their original shape. With straight arms, the glasses can follow along with the baby's growth, while also being hypoallergenic so even newborns can safely wear them. The texture is rubbery too, and less prone to slip off the face. Children below the age of three can choose from the basic range of solid colours, but they can level up to tortoise-patterned frames and mirrored lenses once they've grown enough for the junior collection. Find Izipizi at EmQuartier, Emporium, Siam Paragon and Siam Discovery.
