Neige was born out of Adrienne Catrina's unique vision of sophistication and style in children's wear. The French word for "snow", neige was chosen to designate the collection for its connotations of purity, innocence and sophisticated playfulness. Catrina's erudite eye and design philosophy were honed during her years as an assistant designer to preeminent ready-to-wear and bridal designer Vera Wang, for whom she worked upon graduation from Parsons School of Design. For children, comfort is the yardstick, and each piece on the collection is conceived with this in mind. What separates Neige, meanwhile, is that each piece is designed with an intense dedication to quality and style.
