The famous French character was conceived after Jean de Brunhoff designed it for his son, at the same time that Jeanne Lanvin was designing dresses specifically for her daughter. Using this heritage, Sialelli translates the original drawings from the books into prints for scarves, shirts, hoodies, jumpers, boots and hats for both men and women.
Lavin presents a collection comprised of pastel colors, deviating from hues we typically expect from the colder seasons. As a result, the “Babar” delivers a number of standout pieces that are eclectic, tinged with ’70s tropes and offer a welcomed contrast to archetype Fall-ready clothing. A glacier blue silk shirt made from cotton poplin is adorned with a watercolor depiction of Babar the Elephant in the city, while a navy merino wool sweater steals the collection entirely with its creamy silk midsection, also adorned with the elephant drawing.
