“niko+ava is an online boutique offering a beautiful, thoughtful curation of clothing, shoes and accessories for boys and girls aged 0 through to 6. The collection of our DC-based shop is truly unique, featuring European brands such as Paade Mode, Pierrot La Lune, As We Grow, Macarons, Noro, and Pom d’Api, plus the likes of Japanese East End Highlanders and Arch&Line. Each item is chosen with an eye for quality, longevity, functionality, ethical production, and style.
Named after our first-born children (firm friends!), this shop is the creation of two mamas, Luisa (me) and Kelly. We’ve been inspired to pool our talent, time and passion to find stylish alternatives to the ubiquitous mass-produced, throwaway children’s apparel we’ve encountered along the way. Everything you’ll find here is truly loved by us and worn by our little ones – and I think you’ll love our taste! And there’s more good news: niko+ava is not just for clothing, and it’s not just for the little ones! Don’t miss our gorgeous selection for Mama and even Dada, décor equally at home in the living room as the nursery, our imaginative gift ideas and range of creative toys.”
