Guest post by Estella – one of our favorite kids clothing boutiques in the city. Since their opening more than a decade ago, they’ve grown to become a boutique with a national reputation, appearing in the likes of Vogue and the NY Times. Despite this tremendous success, they stay true to their original values and continue to work with small artisans – some of them from good ol’ Brooklyn. Check out their kids fashion picks for Summer!
Hi, my name is Jean Polsky and I am the co-founder of Estella, an online designer baby clothing boutique. We are so honored to contribute to Brooklyn Makers and write about one of my favorite places, Brooklyn! Not only do I love exploring Williamsburg, Carroll Gardens, Dumbo and more, but I am also big foodie and my husband and I love M Shanghai (hands-down, the best Chinese food anywhere), Dresden, Grocery, and the list goes on.
As for the kids fashion, there are so many talented, personality-packed lines that come from the borough. Since I am in the business of finding unique pieces with character, Brooklyn is a great source for me. This summer we are all about breezy and lightweight fabrics in simple silhouettes.

These pieces by Muny, Kallio, and Lady Handmade are elegant, beautifully made, and most importantly will keep our little ones cool during those uncomfortably hot days we all know are coming! Graphic tees and prints seem to be everywhere at the moment as well, and the best screen-printed pieces are all coming from Brooklyn-based lines: Winter Water Factory, Atsuyo et Akiko, and Lucky Fish are just a few.
I hope you enjoy our picks, and thank you for having us!
