Say Bonjour to Jacadi Paris, Our Latest Rue Debut

Ever wanted your child to dress like a Parisian? For expert advice, we sat down with Jacadi Paris’s North American Brand Manager, Sabrina Masson, to hear her take on the renowned French kids’ label.

On French Fashion:
Each season, we offer a fresh interpretation of iconic designs from French fashion history (like the perfect peacoat, polo shirt, striped mariner top, or woven straw hat).

On Formal Occasions:
Our dressy clothing is made from natural, breathable materials (primarily cotton and linen for summer) and tailored for a perfect fit. Comfortable, classic elegance is always appropriate and photographs well.

On Quality:
Our Paris-based design team sources vintage patterns from children’s fashion history and reinterprets them in the finest fabrics and materials. The result is heirloom-quality clothing and accessories made for today’s children that not only lasts, but exhibits timeless elegance and style.

On Shoes:
We recommend building a wardrobe of shoes that are suitable for many occasions. For girls, this includes demure ballet flats or maryjanes, chic summer sandals, and sporty tennis shoes. For boys, a pair of smart moccasins or boat shoes, athletic-inspired sneakers, and leather sandals. Bootie versions of these archetypical styles are available for infants and toddlers.

On Splurging:
Make the splurge on a standout dress or heritage item that can be passed down through the family. Our designs are timeless enough to be worn for many seasons, and often become treasured heirlooms.
