Every society has its own way of saying welcome.
Russians triple-kiss (left, right, left). Zambians gently squeeze thumbs. And preschool teachers invite you to join them on a circle-time rug.
Say hello to Little Society, a line of kiddie clothes built for sitting crisscross-applesauce on the classroom floor. Combining eco-consciousness (organic cotton and recycled polyester fleece) with fashion smarts, the collection elevates casual styling to a new level.
For girls, dolman-sleeve, drop-waist tunics are paired with comfy, genie-inspired pants. Boys get hooded graphic tees and slouchy sweatpants with contrasting knee patches. And all the fabrics have a lazy Sunday feel but a how-cute-are-you look.
Leaving us with only one more thing to say: holla.
