We moved to France about 6 years ago. I still love to start our Sunday mornings with a croissants and a coffee at one of my favourite cafés, Eric Kayser. Whislt Alexander runs around with his daddy, I get to read the newspaper (the French newspaper is the perfect way to practice your French while looking super smart I might add).
Alexander looking casual smart today in his cashmere Eden & Zoe cardigan (scroll down if you want to read more), I dig denim jeans and Angulus boots, he fits right in with all the Parisian children today.
Art deco is Melissa Wang’s inspiration for the Eden and Zoe AW14 collection. Eden and Zoe, the daughters of Melissa, love geometric designs and are drawn to symmetrical patterns. They especially like completing mazes and much of their artwork revolves around floral and zigzag motifs in vivid colours. This started her thinking about 1920s art deco design which was at the time, considered both luxurious and decorative: perfect for a cashmere collection.
In this collection, Melissa has used a striking intarsia chevron pattern and delicate floral pointelle and lace knits which pay tribute to classic art deco design elements. The pieces are presented in shades of gray, blue, brown and light pink, which are some of her favorite autumn/winter colours.
In addition, Eden and Zoe introduces their inaugural boys’ collection! Now it is not just girls who can enjoy their cashmere pieces. As with the girls’ collection, their boys’ sizing runs from sizes 2 – 10. Want to see the rest of the collection, visit Eden & Zoe’s website here.
