As a mother of girls, you vowed not to push your childhood dreams on your little lovelies (“Sing out, Louise!”).
But when it comes to pulling together their wardrobes, it’s pie in the sky with Pale Cloud. The debut collection for girls effortlessly weaves sophisticated silhouettes out of childhood innocence — and silk and cashmere.
Before you say, “No way! Not for my tumbleweed!,” consider the playground-friendly cotton Carmen dress in rusty red. Just try to resist the military-inspired Mille cashmere jacket with cloud-shaped leather elbow patches and oversize gold buttons. And to deny the dusty pink Talia knit dress — with an unoffensive sprinkle of sequins — a place in her closet would be foolish.
But you better move fast. Buyers responded so enthusiastically to the fall collection that only limited quantities were left for Pale Cloud’s website.
Wouldn’t want another dream deferred.
Available online at pale-cloud.com, $56-$200.
