I love to feature children's fashion on the blog whenever I can, introducing my readers to beautiful new brands and getting to experience new and unique fashions for my boy. I've spoken before about how difficult I think it is to find gorgeous clothes for little boys - unless you know where to look of course. I'm not a fan of character clothing (unless done in a subtle and stylish way, such as the classic Winnie the Pooh and Peter Rabbit outfits I've featured on Tyler Lee before), garish colours and dinosaur prints, all of which are found in abundance in the boys section in high-street stores and this is why I search online for stylish and unique clothing for my son - why should his clothes be any less special just because he's a boy?
I was recently introduced to the delightful Australian baby and toddler designer wear brand Pappe and I immediately fell in love with their offerings. "Inspired by the contrast between traditional children’s wear, and contemporary trends, Pappe combines nostalgia and modernity, with beautiful design and world-class fabrics". Pappe's clothes have a timeless and minimalist feel to them and the fabrics used in their pieces is nothing short of pure quality.
Tyler Lee was very kindly sent two pieces from Pappe's toddler range to sample and I immediately fell in love with them when they arrived, packaged beautifully in a white box with tissue paper and a copper seal, it felt like he was receiving something very special indeed.
The t-shirt Tyler Lee is wearing is the Putney Luxe Organic T-Shirt ($34.95), which is a crisp white t-shirt made from the finest organic Turkish cotton and elastane jersey. The fabric of the t-shirt is soft, quite thick and feels quite luxurious - you can immediately tell that this isn't any ordinary t-shirt and in fact, I think it looks rather smart and compliments the bloomers he was also sent perfectly. The t-shirt is age 3 and I was concerned that it wouldn't fit him as it seemed quite snug but it actually fits perfectly.
Tyler Lee was also sent the Beau Bloomer ($74.95) which are the most adorable set of shorts I've laid eyes on for a toddler. I just love the fit of these, they have such a classic style to them and are perfect for teaming with little socks and t-bar shoes, as I did in the styling for the photos. The mid-blue colour of the bloomer is perfect for summer and as these are made from cotton and linen they are light enough for little ones to wear on warm, sunny days whilst remaining comfortable. The Beau Bloomer has an elasticated waist which makes them comfortable for even the most boisterous of toddlers (like my boy!) to wear. Tyler Lee was actually sent the Beau Bloomer in a size 2 and it fits perfectly, amazing considering he's over the age of three now, it just goes to show how generous the fit is.
I would recommend Pappe's clothing to anyone who is looking for clothing that is well made, stylish and classic looking for their little ones. You can immediately tell that these clothes are coming from a designer brand from first touch, the quality and fit really does speak for itself and I really do love the minimalist, timeless design each piece from their range has - no garish items to be seen here! Another great element to Pappe's collection is that their pieces are unisex, the outfit that Tyler Lee is wearing would look equally as lovely on a little girl and I love that ease of wear.
