Kit + Lili are a Brooklyn based label that make beautiful children’s clothing. We discovered Kit and lili last year when I purchased one of their dresses from a local store. You may recall seeing Maya wear the pink and green dress with chrysanthemums on it throughout Spring and Summer. This was Maya’s absolute favorite dress on warm days. I bought it for Maya for her 4th Birthday, but gave it to her a little early so she could get more wear out of it. We liked the style and hand printed cotton fabric so much that I was very much looking forward to seeing the Fall/Winter range from Kit + Lili. I hoped to buy an equally adorable dress for cooler days. As it turns out, by chance we were invited to the Kit + Lili studio in Dumbo and I bought the girls each a dress for the holidays. For both, I selected the same style peasant dress with hand smocking at the waist, wrists and neckline, each in a different print. Polka dots for Maya and birds and leaves for Elle. I am always happy being able to support a small scale designer, especially when they make items this lovely!
