Take a good look at the people above. They are the Creative Directors of new breakout label, Frank & Lu.
Raised in New York City, Frank, 7 and Lu, 5 take their inspiration from the wonderful metropolis and all the colors and emotions of their life here.
Their daddy, Michael does the designing but Frank and Lu tell him exactly what they want...if they don't like it, daddy doesn't make it! Those are the terms.
Daddy is Michael Jarvela - a veteran fashion designer of 18 years, Michael has headed up the men’s department at Gap, created the best selling JCrew Tee shirts ever, and was there when Club Monaco was just a start-up.
I met with Michael the other day and really got the synergy between these clothes and kids in New York ... and looking good, being functional and of course, hip!
Mainly made of cottons and cashmeres with a focus on comfort and wearability - I can't wait to see their clothes hit the playgrounds in a big way. Definitely a label to look out for!
And the great news is that you can purchase these looks online,
