Marie-Chantal gives wee ones their time in the spotlight with its AW18 collection

How adorable is the Marie-Chantal autumn/winter 2018 collection? The kids occasionwear pieces are inspired by the designer’s own childhood. “I grew up with two sisters and we are all still very close,” she explains (she also happens to be the elegant wife of Prince Pavlos of Greece). “My AW18 collection evokes the love and fun we had together as children.”

The delightful range reflects the whimsical joy of exploring autumnal woodlands, misty skies and long walks along the lanes and tracks in the countryside. The flower girl and page boy-friendly creations are destined to be treasured winter favourites with playful touches like frill collars, tulle trims, sequin sparkles and shining jewel buttons. Your tiny tykes will be thrilled to see that there are hand-embroidered pockets included in the designs for them to store their finds like conkers and crisp leaves.

The finished items showcase a playful selection of dupion silks, star-studded tulle and cashmere tweed pinafores for cheeky monkeys to prance around in.You’ll find us cooing over the Beta dress (£250), Belle top (£125), Bridgette skirt (£125) and Bertina jacquard dress (£270) above.
