Janiqueel and the always-fashionable, Mr C love the style and quality of the clothes from a premier shop at Tanglin for children’s habiliments
Château de sable clothes are inspired by the vitality of children. We design clothes in good quality fabric rooted in French fashion legacy with a modern twist. We want children to be happy and comfortable when wearing out clothes. Château de sable clothes are made to be passed on in the family.Catherine Glot, marketing chief – Château de sable
Building a sandcastle is a challenge. Its ephemeral nature gives the task inspiration. One knows that the “Château de sable” will be washed away in the surf, but for a precious time, it remains to hold the beauty and inspiration with which it was created. A sandcastle is like childhood – here today and gone tomorrow. Château de sable’s mission is to make the most of those halcyon days of childhood and to accomplish that with style and vivacity. With your colourful, confident, colour-coordinated Kiddo at your side, you’ll feel the vibe, too. You are STYLIN’, mom and dad.
Château de sable receives new shipments of clothes designed in Europe, and hand-crafted in India, China, and Vietnam, twelve times a year, so there are new pieces in the store every two weeks or so. This is style à la mode. As you shop for these cutting edge designs, you can accumulate points on (only) your online purchases. Added to the already good value pricing, these rewards make shopping at the “Sandcastle” an affordable experience.
So, what defines “French Style?”, we wondered. Turning to Catherine Glot for for help, Janiqueel learned that French style is more than a state of mind. She identified three characteristics that define that special style for children or the young-at-heart of any age:
- GOOD QUALITY FABRICS – preferably natural or organic ones like cotton, viscose (rayon), of Tencel (regenerated cellulose).
- DETAILS and PRINT – small and exquisite detail rather than big and bold splashes define the subtle art of suggestion.
- CUT – “…important for French design; classic cuts that can be modernised by the colour used, the print or a sleeve or hem detail is better than minute-style that will go quickly out of favour.”
Incorporating these characteristics, some of the most popular styles in the shop are (for girls) the Ballerina Dress. Always a popular choice for the dream-dancers, the ballerina dress is constantly being revised and renewed. You won’t see the same style next season, so snap up the choice of your tiny dancer and start a collection. Remember that the dresses, like all the styles, are never outgrown, they are passed along to the next fashionista.
For boys, the Essential Shorts are ever-popular. “They are impeccably cut, very soft and comfortable to wear and make a nice change from the elasticated waist bottoms.” New colours are coming is regularly. Mr C has several pairs which he proudly dons to go to ukulele lessons, judo sessions, and swim classes. With his navy sun hat and green shades; red, white, and blue short/shirt combination; and ukulele case slung over one shoulder – This kid is une passionnées de mode. Vraiment!
