It is first and foremost a family story. The two elder daughters of a boisterous French family, Anaïs and Clémence were always very close growing up in Paris. When Anaïs moved to the United States—where she had three daughters of her own—she was surprised to find that there wasn’t much in the way of appealing children’s clothing. So she called her sister Clémence, also recently a mother, and together, they launched Petite Lucette in 2013. The sisters combined their talents for design and style to create a brand that offers beautiful, timeless pieces in poetic prints and pastel colors.
Anaïs de Viel Castel worked in France for the luxury house Hermès before moving to the U.S., where she followed up with styling work for American magazines. Clémence de Laubier is a graduate of Penninghen in Paris, France’s most prestigious school of design, and has led as the art director on many projects for brands like Chopard, Van Cleef & Arpels, and Relais et Châteaux.
Petite Lucette offers a charming collection of children’s clothing, from 3 months to 12 years old. A chic wardrobe combining elegant and comfortable pieces, as well as effortless, understated design with attention to detail.
Each garment is designed for its practicality, easiness to slip on and pair. All our fabrics are carefully selected for their softness: cotton, linen, merino wool, gabardine and twill. Earthy tones and refined prints contribute to Petite Lucette’s charm season after season.
