When the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, something juicy is bound to happen.
Example: Anais & I, a new girls’ clothing line from interior designer Jane D’Haene, who designed everything with her 4-year-old daughter (named Anais, of course) in mind.
With 65 machine-washable pieces for ages 6 months to 8 years, the collection is massive — and Anais has road tested every style. So your own little angel is likely to approve of standouts like corduroy dresses, pleated shorts, Liberty-print tunics, and black leather jackets.
Smart basics such as skirts, tops, and sweatshirts in subtle lilac, slate, and mauve are interchangeable, so you don’t need to scramble to pull an outfit together. It’s all ripe for the picking.
Select styles available at Estella, 493 Sixth Avenue, between 12th and 13th Streets (212-255-5335 or estella.com); Babesta, 66 West Broadway, between Warren and Murray Streets (212-608-4522 or babesta.com), $40-$150. To see styles, go to anaisandi.com.
