These fab designer labels all do kidswear - and you'll want every piece
As French chic fashion brand Sézane launches a kidswear range, we take note of the other independent brands with the cutest mini-me ranges
Kitting the little ones out in style is another priority: perhaps it's the culture of mini-me dressing going from strength to strength, but it turns out some of your favourite independent fashion brands have children's ranges with everything you'd expect - quality fabrics, great cuts and a clear style sensibility.
Here are the brands doing kidswear you need to know about now...
For fairy princesses: LoveShackFancy

The dreamy, romantic-vintage line of florals, ruffles and boho-luxe appeal for grownups, LoveShackFancy, has a totally dreamy girls' range, that captures the NY-meets-LA feel we can't get enough of. Think smock dresses, swimwear, cosy knits and the best in party-perfect wedding and occasionwear (flowers, ruffles, bows and more). The range is available from baby sizes through age 12.

Launched at the end of May, Sézane's kids' collection is all about twinning - in style. Bestsellers like the spotty Pierro shirt and Will jacket are reimagined in child sizes, and you'll also find dreamy sundresses, ruffled blouses and printed tees. Mums will love the "Mum of Boys/Girls" tees, designed in collabo with My Travel Dreams.
For weekend style: Zadig & Voltaire
Girls Can Do Anything top, £37 at Childrensalon - buy here
Printed dress, £92 at Childrensalon - buy here
Beanie hat, 37 at Childrensalon - buy here
We love French brand Zadig & Voltaire's kids' range for boys and girls because it's just so wearable with plenty of denim, graphic print tees and sweats, funky frocks and practical accessories (plus, the price point is good). It's inspired by the adult range, so has that insouciant French appeal, with a touch of rock-and-roll. It's available for kids from 4-16, and the spring collection is currently on sale at Childrensalon.
