Luxurious yet livable childrenswear with a nostalgic, whimsical feeling
Based in New York City, the brand’s founder, Kristen Callahan, recognized a need in the US for sophisticated and stylish children’s clothing, such as that she found when traveling in Europe. Utilizing her know-how from a career working for some of the top luxury fashion houses in the world, she curated a collection focused on super soft fabrics and special details. The result is a timeless, refined wardrobe for little ones. Byrne & Bittle has all the makings of a top luxury fashion brand, but on a foundation of playfulness and nostalgia.
We’re always looking for more ways to stay inspired to create and dream. Traveling to the European countryside is always a huge source of inspiration for Kristen, after all, it was her time spent working in Europe that inspired her to create the same heirloom-quality style she saw in boutiques there.
Among Kristen’s childhood in Tennessee, travels to the European countryside, and her life in New York City, a big inspiration for Byrne & Bittle has been classic children’s literature. The brand is meant to encapsulate that feeling as if you’re in a classic fairytale - whimsical, nostalgic, and playful.
