Despite your best efforts, it happened: Your bug-catching, mud-playing tomboy morphed into a little princess overnight.
May we present Tutu du Monde, the dreamy, vintage-looking playwear collection that delivers the royal frill she demands — with a dose of modern edge you’ll adore.
Hand-dyed in dusty pastels with sequin, bead, and feather details, the cotton and tulle creations conjure old-world magic (sparkle and shine) with new-world twists (fraying and fading). Pleasing our highnesses were the oversize floral applique on the Blossom tutu and the flowing skirt on the Galaxy dress.
We think a Bow top paired with a Fairy petticoat will likely inspire twirling that feels more rock ’n’ roll ballerina than dainty dancer.
Consider that your crowning achievement.
