Eden and Zoe are the names of my two daughters. They are my inspiration and motivation.
eden & zoe was started with a wish to keep my daughters comfortable, cozy and stylish. My girls decided that wool knitwear was too “itchy”, so I started looking into cashmere for them. Having found the combination of quality and style in children’s knits elusive, I decided to create the clothes myself.
My aim is to design cashmere knitwear for children that is sophisticated and understated. I believe in classic styling with a modern twist. I like to think about the details that make a garment unique yet timeless. Most importantly, it is about your child feeling comfortable and confident in what she/he is wearing.
Each collection is made in small quantities to ensure quality and exclusivity. Each piece is created
using a hand-operated knitting machine and finished by hand.
eden & zoe knitwear is made to be worn, enjoyed and shared.
INSPIRATION - FW16 COLLECTION
Winter Wonderland is the inspiration for this fall/winter collection. My family and I recently spent a winter break in upstate New York, and had a lovely white Christmas. Coming from San Francisco, it was a whole new world for my daughters Eden, Zoe and Elise, and I was inspired by their sense of wonder at their newfound snowy surroundings and by how much fun we all had.
In this collection, I worked with a variety of mediums including cashmere, fine merino wool and brocade. Brocade is one of my favorite fabrics: it has a beautiful texture and is perfect for occasion wear. Occasion wear has been on the top of Eden and Zoe’s wish list, so I was excited to create formal dresses and outfits for both girls and boys. There is also nothing cuter than a baby all dressed up in party wear!
You will recognize the classic eden & zoe palette of grey, pink and white, to which I have added a lovely purple for girls and a striking blue for boys.
I am also excited to extend our line to include size 11-12 for boys and girls. Eden and her friends are growing fast and we are trying to keep up!
Following the popularity of our baby rattles, we have added more styles. These are all hand crafted from 100% fine cotton materials and make perfect baby gifts.
Lastly, I hope that your little ones love this collection as much as mine do. They are the reason for what we do.
PHOTO SHOOT - EDEN & ZOE X RORY EARNSHAW
Rory Earnshaw was our photographer for this shoot and I think the photos speak for themselves. He did an amazing job of capturing our models, whilst making it seem so effortless at the same time.
Cashmere is like no other. Here are some of the reasons why:Ideal for children
Cashmere is long-lasting and actually becomes softer with age. The more you wear a cashmere garment, the more comfortable it becomes. It makes the perfect hand-me-down which can be shared with other little ones.
Our cashmere is sourced from the native goats of the Mongolian highlands. We use cashmere yarns made from the fine undercoat fibers of the cashmere goats. These fibers are collected by combing or shearing the goat during each molting season. After collection, the long fibers are carefully hand picked and washed before being spun into yarns to produce high quality knitwear.
