The owners of this children’s-wear newcomer share a contemporary European sensibility, but more in the young-and-current vein than some serious shops and designers. For parents fatigued by precious and fussy, the clothes (newborn to age 6) come from fun, modern labels—Peas and Queues, 3 Pommes, This is Dutch—from France, the Netherlands, and Japan via Brooklyn.
