We launched our Heritage Collection back in 2013 when Rachel knew that there was to be a new Royal heir to the British throne. As a babywear designer, Rachel was inspired to design a collection with a ‘My Little Prince’ and ‘My Little Princess’ theme, with exclusive prints, hand embroidery, traditional smocking, layette items and London themes. It was born from a demand for more formal clothing for children, and to offer specific items for special occasions and formalwear.
Since then our Heritage Collection has evolved to cover all those key outfits for special occasion and every day. Timeless styles never go out of fashion and it is so fun for us to be able to share these classic pieces with each new generation of babies!
Some of our Heritage styles have been worn by members of the Royal Family and made famous the world over, these iconic outfits are firm favourites with our customer base and regularly sell out, here are some of our 'Heritage Heroes':
The Sailboat Smocked Dungarees - These dungarees are perfect for a crawling baby whilst retaining a smart look! Made famous when Prince George wore them at his first official Royal engagement in New Zealand in 2014 they have been a bestseller ever since!
