Basics Training

Oeuf Layette Launches

oeuf layette!

When it comes to baby fashion, the words “gender neutral” are code for “subtle pea green” (nothing to envy about that).

Make the case for simple white instead. To wit: Oeuf’s new baby layette.

The modern kiddie brand — known for clean lines and eco-conscious design — delivers a selection of baby basics that lives up to its reputation. The entire collection — from beanies to blankets — is made under fair trade conditions in certified organic Peruvian cotton.

Items come in sizes 3 to 24 months and include kimono-style onesies and tees, jumpers with and without feet, long- and short-sleeve tees, pants, and ruffled diaper covers. No need to fear baby blowouts; nothing takes a splash of bleach quite like an all-white wardrobe.

Perfect for your blank canvas.

Available online at oeufnyc.com, $12-$56.
