These baby knits are almost too adorable for words – however, I’m a writer so I’ve found a whole bunch of superlatives to lavish on this gorgeous brand.
Before I launch into the sublime wares that are available from Baby Degen – let me tell you about the incredible woman behind the brand. Designer Lindsay Degen was an early starter in fashion circles. She began creating her own knits when she was just three years old, after her grandmother introduced her to the craft. Fast forward a few years and Lindsay has attended the Rhode Island School of Design and Central Saint Martins in London. She now creates these stunning pieces from New York City.
The babywear section of her brand is still relatively new – it was only launched last year. The range includes separates that can be mixed and matched, onesies and accessories. They’re all made from soft and durable fabrics and they are stand out pieces. A beautiful nod to an ageless craft, but with plenty of contemporary quirkiness to bring them into the modern day.
These pieces are made from Spanish cotton, in America, and each piece takes a couple of weeks to make. The singlets are US$50, the sunny and bright shorts are US$95, and the jumpers are US$110 – with sizes ranging from six months to 24 months.
