Well-Tailored

Leave it to a German brand to marry precise tailoring with function and versatility—and a requisite dose of style. Tom Tailor, a German lifestyle staple since 1962, made its American debut at Project LV in August 2015. The kids’ collection is available for newborn to size 14, and includes three lines: Tom Tailor Babies, Tom Tailor Minis and Tom Tailor Kids. Look for classics like T-shirts, hoodies, parkas, button-downs and puffer vests, as well as on-trend pieces, like 70s-inspired flared denims for girls and graphic tees depicting scenes from New York City and California for boys. Wholesale prices range from $8 to $95. www.tom-tailor.eu.

Royal Treatment

With VIP customers and a storefront in New York City’s trendy Tribeca neighborhood, Livly’s signature coats, dresses and cashmere-blended cardigans have already racked up an impressive following. (Founder Lisa Carrol even created custom outfits for the flower girls and pageboys at Princess Madeleine and Christopher O’Neill’s royal wedding in June 2013.) Carrol officially launched the brand in Sweden in 2011—looking to create a Peruvian pima cotton layette collection suited for the delicate skin of her premature twin daughters, Liv and Lilly. Now available wholesale in the U.S., prices range from $12 to $250 for pieces spanning hand-knit rattles to leather jackets. The new fall collection features a “to the moon and back” motif topped off with whimsical touches—from illustrated castles to the brand’s signature bunny holding a balloon—in a blue, green, dusty pink and khaki color palette. www.livlyclothing.com.

Hit the Jackpot Making Peace

“There came a turning point in my life where I couldn’t sleep at night,” explains Adrian Layne. “I was using leather to make infant footwear, and I am vegetarian.” Layne knew it was time to reevaluate her start-up kids’ brand Cuddlestar—and re-launch with a new 100-percent certified organic, sustainable and ethically-made layette line, dubbed Cat & Dogma. Appropriately, the FW ’16 collection features everything from maps of the world (a homage to the planet) to “I love you” written in seven different languages. Natural fabrics are enlivened with pops of color, made using GOTS-certified dyes and prints. “We even make our clothing generous in the booty for those eco-minded families using cloth diapers,” Layne says. Cat & Dogma made its debut at NY NOW in January, offering styles for infants’ ages newborn to 24 months and wholesales from $12 to $18. www.catanddogma.com 1 0 ; 7 H D I > 7M I $ 9 E C C 7 H 9 > ( & ' ,

With fans like LeBron James and George Clooney, men’s label Jacks & Jokers is ready to up the ante. Up next? A kids’ collection chock full of the brand’s hip, witty graphics. (The brand’s name and designs are derived from Bicycle Playing Cards’ historic art and iconic imagery.) Comfy long-sleeve tees feature cheeky sayings like “Vacation Wanted” and sport scenes from Cali-cool destinations like Malibu. In addition to its U.S.A.-made cotton tees, the line offers a range of hoodies, pull-overs, T-shirts and sweatpants in super-soft washed-down fleece. The unisex styles range from size 2 to 14 and sport a surf-inspired color palette— shades of blue with pops of orange and green. Wholesale prices range from $18 to $30. www.jacksandjokers.com
