2) Soeur

Soeur is the brainchild of Domitille and Angélique Brion and caters to young women between the ages of 10 and 18 years, who are not quite a girl anymore and not yet a woman. Their designs strike a perfect balance between childhood and adulthood and include a line of chic and timeless basics in soft hues.
