Hitting, biting, scratching, kicking. Sometimes the playground feels like a war zone.
Keep the peace in Go Gently Baby. The Manhattan Beach-based line of soft organic knit togs is made for playing nicely with others.
Inspired by the ’60s, the spring collection shines with mod, cotton shift dresses in serene pastels with thoughtful details like ivory lace and corozo buttons. Flower children gravitate to the Love halter and Sweet V dress with matching bloomers. Little boys look cool in nouveau country club style: a preppy jacket, worn-in polos, and Bermuda shorts.
And all of it’s designed to go ten rounds.
