Monnalisa are the go-to Italian brand if you desire ultra-chic, standout luxury childrenswear. Launched back in 1968 by Piero Iacomoni and Barbara Bertocci in the Tuscan town of Arezzo, Italy, both remain part of the company to this day. Their values of quality, fashion and innovation are evident in every new Monnalisa collection and the brand not only has a reputation for creating styles that fit beautifully, but also that children (and their parents) love.
They offer clothing and accessories through different collections that vary according to age group and style. Starting with the youngest, the Bebè line is for baby girls aged 3 months to 3 years, Monnalisa Line for ages 2-12 years, Monnalisa Chic ages 4-16, the Jakioo for 6-16 years and the Fun collection is the more sporty/relaxed line. Plus the boys don’t miss out either- with a line dedicated to offering them a comfortable selection for tearing around in.
The inspiration for AW15 features strong influences from nature, with flowers and landscapes (both urban and country) being depicted with a colour scheme featuring soft hues sitting alongside an injection of some bolder colours such as venetian red.
For the girls, we adore the gorgeous high waisted skirts and stunning standout dresses- and as is usual for the brand- beautiful embellished gem stones are scattered across many different items. They are also known for their fun Disney-inspired prints and this season a rhinestone tweety pie and Lady and the Tramp both put in an appearance!
For the boys, prints depicting snowy views and pictures of animals feature and we love the coats and standout chunky knitwear. Overall it’s a range that is sophisticated but ultimately offers comfort.
