Petit Bateau

Founded in 1893 and named after a nursery rhyme, Petite Bateau is as synonymous with French flair as the Breton striped top. Along with T-shirts, iconic components of the Troyes, France-based children’s wear brand include vests, peacoats and waxed raincoats, along with sleepwear and undergarments. In the mid ’90s, Karl Lagerfeld sent Claudia Schiffer down the Chanel runway in a Petite Bateau children’s T-shirt; the response was so overwhelming that the company added men’s and women’s collections. Designer collaborations have included partnerships with Carven, Christian Lacroix, Maison Kitsuné, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac and Ines de la Fressange.
