As I was wandering around the Adelaide PBC Expo a few months ago there was one little stand that immediately caught my eye. Beautiful children’s clothing that was classy and unique and the most stunning range of kids’ shoes, I knew I had to find out more about this gorgeous boutique called Clovis by MeiKen:
Clovis by MeiKen was created by lovely mama Mei (and a bit of help from dad Ken) when she struggled to find high quality, stylish and classy clothing for her daughter Clovis in Australian stores. She embarked on a mission to source the globe for the best designer labels and make them available to fashion savvy Aussie mamas who can appreciate a touch of luxury for their little ones. Clovis by MeiKen was born and is quickly making name as the hippest new store on the block.
Back to the divine footwear that stole my heart at the expo and stayed on my mind ever since. The luxurious PePe shoes are handcrafted in Italy and beautifully finished. Made from the highest quality leather they deliver a look that’s magazine worthy, unbeatable comfort and important support for growing little feet. Sweet Mary-Janes and ballerinas, cute lace-up boots and, my favourite, the coolest hi-tops, PePe has got miniature fashionistas covered in style.
As soon as I spotted these awesome PePe Nevada Bruciato Hi-Top Sneakers ($152, size 22-28) I could picture them on the feet of our miss 3. The super soft tan leather is totally on trend and thanks to the convenient side zip closure they’re easy to put on for small hands who haven’t mastered laces just yet. They ooze personality and class, they’re simply made for our little girl and look fantastic on her.
While I expected these shoes to be amazing they were actually even more luxurious in real life, the supple, butter soft leather is the most beautiful I have ever seen and you can tell they are extremely comfortable to wear. A little birdie told me that a special PePe ‘Mummy & Me’ collection is in the making so that mama and her mini-me can match their looks, I’ll be keeping an eye out and update you once I hear more!
