Julia Restoin Roitfeld has created a 30-piece children’s fashion collection with high street store River Island, for babies and kids aged newborn to five years.
Some women just ‘ooze glam’… ‘Effortless chic’ is another turn of overused phrase when describing these type of well-dressed women. But, I can’t think of another way to describe this total babe of a woman. Julia is a model (obviously), and creative director of lifestyle mummy blog and shop, Romy and the Bunnies, which is named after Julia’s daughter, Romy Nicole.
Julia was surely destined to have a creative career, since her mother is Carine Roitfeld – the former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, from 2001 to 31 January 2011. After more than earning her fashion credentials, and having her own baby, Julia has teamed up with River Island to create this sweet collection for babies, girls and boys, inspired by her own fashionable, French childhood. Around 15 members of us UK press were treated to a dinner at Somerset House’s Spring, hosted by Julia to introduce the collection…

There were photos of Julia and her brother, Vlad, set among the pieces to show how her own ’80s childhood has inspired her designs. The classic French Breton top, of course, makes an appearance, alongside denim dungarees, white peasant tops and a dress and really cosy, spongy-feeling jersey wear.
So, here’s a sneak peek… The collection launches at River Island in mid-October 2016…
