I don't have a son so I'm pretty much clueless when it comes to anything boy. Case in point, last weekend we had birthday parties to attend for two of my daughters boyfriends (yes, she is a playa) and you would have found This Mom roaming the toy aisles of Target with a faraway glaze over my eyes wondering "What on Earth do boys play with?" Man! The small male species is a huge mystery. Come to think of it, the large male species can be quite confounding as well. Give me princesses and tutus any day and I am completely at home. Still, there is one thing I am quite sure of when it comes to boys. If I ever have a son, he will definitely wear clothes by Bobinette!
This fantastic brand came about when designer Lorraine Le Tac had her first son Spencer, 7 years ago. Living in New York at the time, she'd scour the city searching for clothes for her new baby boy. Finding only clothes that were boring and conservative inspired her to begin Bobinette. Now with two year old son Matisse on board as well, her resolve to bring style and fashion to boy apparel has deepened ever more. Born in Paris and raised by a talented mother who instilled in her a sense of style, Lorraine draws her inspiration from her French background, nature, playing children, and western travel, among many other places. Bobinette's trendy designs feature the natural fabrics Lorraine is fond of; cotton (organic), linen. Cotton is the best! It comes in so many shapes and forms - crinkled like gauze, textured like seersucker, soft and stretchy like cotton knits... I also like fleece because it is fluffy, comfortable and warm for winter clothes - perfect for baby jackets!
Bobinette yearns to bring more color and style to all little boys around the globe! These stylish clothes almost makes me wish I could trade away hairbows for tonka trucks. Almost. In the meanwhile, hip moms of boys can purchase Bobinette in local retail stores.
