PARIS — Little sizes are turning into big business, with executives confirming that children’s wear, a small yet resilient chunk of the designer world, is experiencing bullish year-on-year growth.
“We continue to have great sell-through and are starting to see [strong] growth in the Web business,” said Tracy Edwards, vice president and divisional merchandise manager at Barneys New York. She cited Phillip Lim Kids, Little Ella Moss, John Galliano and Little Marc Jacobs among leading lines, with downsized versions of designer brands in hot demand.
