Amelie Muse, you’re going to want to be her best friend too.Some people you just want to hate. For example, a former model-turned-mom who still looks like a model. But when you get to know her a bit and find out she’s also nice and cool and smart and has a great kid, AND designs unbelievably awesome childrens clothes, well dammit, you just can’t be a hatah.This describes my relationship with Birgitte Jensen. And when you see her line at
Birgitte started by designing one-of-a-kind pieces for her fancy model friends but now makes them available to the public and their lucky kids. It’s just the kind of chic-without-trying styles you’d expect from a woman with her background. But what I like most is that Amelie Muse’s kids’ clothes really do feel like kids’ clothes, as opposed to resized grown-up duds. Think: breezy gingham sundresses (yep, gingham’s back), graphic two-toned sunflower prints, bold Hawaiian-inspired peasant blouses. Her boys line is in its infancy with just a couple pieces, but we expect future greatness.
Every piece is made to order and the prices are remarkably reasonable. Probably about what her model friends pay for a case of Evian. –Liz
