Winter has most definitely arrived, which means it’s time to bring out your little one’s warmest and coziest pieces. For luxurious yet practical toddler & baby clothes, be sure check out Album di Famiglia. The Northern Italian brand is known for its sophisticated designs and ultra-soft fabrics – its signature cotton blend fabric feels as soft as cashmere but is still machine-washable, making it an ideal option for the winter months. Wearable baby leggings and toddler tops can be worn over and over, girls’ dresses are as appropriate for everyday wear as they are the holiday season, and the practical baby one-pieces and rompers are perfectly soft on baby’s sensitive skin.

Here are a few images from Paade Mode‘s beautiful AW14 collection, “Below the Snow.” The Latvian brand offers organic, smart casual clothes for children that are all ethically produced in Latvia; the brand’s founder, Linda Raituma, supports the slow fashion movement, where clothes are thoughtfully designed and manufactured using natural fabrics and technologies that are child & environmentally friendly. The brand often partners with small artisans, ateliers, and studios to hand-make its clothes in a socially and economically conscious fashion. The result is a collection of sophisticated yet wearable pieces – like cozy knits, girls’ dresses, & toddler boys’ clothes – that are exquisitely made and intended to enhance children’s personalities instead of supersede them.
Paade Mode’s fall 2014 line is full of lovely, winter-esque colors and ultra warm pieces. “The snow creates a story, same as parents create the story of their children. Little, delicate, and vulnerable, yet so colorful, bright, and exuberant. Each their own person, thinker, filled with joyful smiles, capability for unconditional love and trust. The play between snow, pines, bushes and trees emphasizes their unique colors and forms while loving parents give children the chance to grow into beautiful and free personalities.” Cozy wool knits (cardigans, skirts, & scarves), thick plaid dresses and tops, and deep blues & maroons are found throughout the collection – the perfect pieces for a fashionable and versatile winter wardrobe.
