We southerners have an affinity for all things hand crafted, traditional, tasteful & of course beautiful. That being said if you are a true Southern Femme you are going to be ecstatic to see the Papo d’Anjo Spring 2010 Collection…I know I was mesmerized by this Portuguese based high end children’s clothing line.
American born Catherine Monteiro de Barros married & moved to Portugal in 1991 & a mere four years later began her hand-crafted children’s clothing line, Papo d’Anjo named after a popular Portuguese pastry (click here for the recipe!). She wanted to treat American mothers to decadently detailed & well made European clothing that can be passed down from generation to generation– Lord knows we southerners love to pass down family heirlooms & anything that represents tradition!

While Papo d’Anjo can be found in well known department stores like Harrods in London, the clothing line can also be purchased via their website, catalog & trunk shows! Get excited Southern Femmes: Lisbon, Portugal based Papo d’Anjo has arrived in Birmingham, Alabama! This week, Monday October 19th through Thursday October 22nd, Kelli Kelly, Sara Luther Schilleci & Melissa Singleton are hosting a Papo d’Anjo trunk show showcasing the precious Summer 2010 Collection.
What you will find when perusing through the new collection is an array of tasteful patterns such as coral, gingham & even Liberty prints! My favorite prints of the Spring 2010 Collection is their collaboration with the famous 130+ year old Liberty clothing company. Sweet tunics, dresses, bloomers & tops for girls then button downs & shorts for boys are just the beginning of the wide array of gorgeous pieces that Papo d’Anjo is offering for the warm weather to come. Catherine Monteiro de Barros knows exactly how to design & create adorable & age appropriate clothing for boy & girls from newborns to 16 year olds…it’s clothing that both you & your children will love with its traditional meets trendy prints & designs.
One last facet of this phenomenal company is their made-to-order clothing called The Bespoke Collection. It is a personal way to create the perfect Baptism gown, ring bearer suit, flower girl dress or any other ensemble for a special occasion. Again what Southern Femme does not want her children looking extra special in clothing made from luxurious European fabrics & designs?!
For an exclusive look at the Papo d’Anjo Spring 2010 Collection all Southern Femmes are invited to attend this biannual trunk show this week, Oct. 19th-22nd, at the home of Kelli Kelly in Birmingham, Alabama. What a fabulous way to get your holiday shopping behind you while ultimately purchasing pieces that your children will be able to pass down to their own children one day!
