Tutu & Shorts: Style That Grows With The Child

Tutu & Shorts: Style That Grows With The Child

Children outgrow their clothes seemingly overnight. The joy of seeing them in a new outfit is often short-lived as it becomes snug just a few months later. Lovely gifts and formal clothing only get worn a handful of times. This makes the financial and environmental impact even tougher to swallow.

With all this in mind, our designers found a stylish way to get the clothes to keep up with the child’s growth. Crafted with care, our tutu and shorts line-up has the unique ability to “grow up” and be there for all of the little one’s first milestones. Beyond their functionality, these pieces are equally suited for both formal occasions and everyday use.

The versatility of these adjustable pieces makes them two of our most gifted items in Japan. Starting as a baby shower gift, it seamlessly transitions to become a cherished outfit for a first birthday then a first recital. We hope this combination of thoughtfulness, style, and practicality elevates it from fashion garment to family memento.
