Cult kidswear designer Marie-Chantal’s adorable summer collection includes pretty smock dresses and cashmere knits
Marie-Chantal’s first collection for M&S flew off the shelves when it launched last November, so don’t expect her new range to hang around for long. As before, the clothes hark back to a nostalgic vision of childhood, but this time the colour palette features pastel greens, blues and apricots, and fabrics include lighter cottons and soft cashmere. “It’s playful, it’s everyday, it’s special, it’s a little bit dressy,” says the designer: the perfect look if you’re taking little people to a wedding or garden party. My personal favourites are this textured dress, with smock detail and pretty pleats, as well as the shorts and braces set and the cashmere knit. Buy them now before they sell out.
