Where did we come from? What is Classical Child? You may be wondering........
After struggling to find beautiful clothing for my own children here in New Zealand I turned to the internet to source and purchase unique beautiful outfits and accessories for my kids. I eventually settled on some favorite brands, clothing that I could depend on the quality, my kids loved to wear and most of all just looked so adorably cute. I had other parents commenting on their outfits, asking where I got the children's clothing from, and if I could keep an eye out for them too!
It was then I realized more parents like me struggle to find high quality classical unique clothing for their kids, items that had that timeless heritage touch, things that you would want to wrap up in tissue and store in the attic until the next family member came along.
We started in early 2014 with a shipment of socks, the traditional lace style and also the ever popular pom pom socks. These sold out very quickly as nothing similar was available in New Zealand at the time.
And that’s how Classical Child was born. We began with socks only, and slowly expanded our collection to include hair accessories, bonnets and hats, overalls, shoes, Spanish knitwear sets and much more!
We are the only stockists of Foque in New Zealand and Australia. FOQUE is made in Spain and is designed for families looking for classic elegance and the innovative look. FOQUE uses only the finest materials, ensuring a luxury feel to every garment and a high quality finish. Personally I love the complete matching outfits, for little girls matching dress, bloomers and bonnets. For boys, with my own boy I might find some adorable bloomer style shorts, or a cute peter pan collar shirt, but they don't match each other! This is where the Foque matching boys sets shine! The shirts and shorts are designed together and co-ordinate beautifully.
The clothing and accessories we provide are not intended to be high fashion or a cheap fast clothing option, rather something your family will cherish and treasure as a family heirloom for years to come.
