La Miniatura Autumn/Winter 2012


These clothes are so stylish and cool, they actually make me want to have a boy. The designer behind the label is Jeffrey Sebelia, best known for his rock band Lifter, his successful clothing line Cosa Nostra and most notably, his storied win of season three of the Bravo series Project Runway.

Now he has launched an entirely new brand of edgy kids clothes. Jeffrey says the idea came about during a discussion about the tribulations of finding cool, chic clothes for boys. Enter; La Miniatura – a collection drawn from the late 70’s to early 80’s post-punk re-interpreted through the lens of current trends and classic details for kids. When questioned about the line’s lush red and black velvet suits, plaid blazers and sophisticated trench coats and sweaters compared to the easy-in, easy-out sweat pants moms are begrudgingly forced to stick their boys in today, Jeffrey’s only reply — “I just want my kid to be able to dress with some dignity!” Here are the stockists and online stores where you can find it all.
