Welcome to my first Brand Spotlight blog post! I am super selective about the brands I choose to bring to Lilly & Raye, I get so excited when I discover a new label and I love each one for different reasons. I will be writing a Brand Spotlight post every month or so to highlight to you what I find so special about each of my brands and give you a little more insight to who is making your clothes!
My love for the Pink Chicken brand began pretty instantly when I was gifted a baby set for my daughter Lilly. ( see photo! )
The sweet little embroidered tunic hung prominently in her closet until the day she was finally big enough to wear it. That little outfit was so special to me, she was at such a sweet age and we have so many happy memories of that summer. Its one of those outfits I have tucked away to save forever.
The clean, bohemian vibe of this brand is exactly what I had envisioned when dreaming of how I wanted to dress my daughter. I was hooked.
Pink Chicken was the very first brand I reached out to when I made the decision to open a children’s boutique, so it only seems fitting I feature them in my first blog post for Lilly and Raye! I’m so thrilled and honored to have such a great selection of Pink Chicken’s SS17 collection in my opening assortment. I hope you love this brand as much as I do….I plan on bringing you alot more from them in the future! Here’s a little more background about PC and some beautiful images from their lookbook…
Stacey Fraser created Pink Chicken in Amagansett, New York. Taking a break from corporate life and finding her footing as a new mother, Stacey used her daughter’s nap time to sew clothes from the fabrics she’d collected over the years. There were baskets of pattern on pattern – bright block prints, Indian cottons, American vintage, all of them so perfectly mismatched. She whipped up little sundresses for her daughters, tunics for herself, simple dressing for each. These were clothes that went from beach to barbecue, park to playdate; with a day-into-dinner kind of ease, they solved practically every get-dress dilemma. Clothes to create in, clothes to explore in.
