This season, Song & Pouch is proud to release Le Petit Prince, inspired by the classic novella by aristocrat, writer, poet and aviator-philosopher Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. This collection aims to match the elegance and grandeur of the Snow Queen, as reflected through the intergalactic travels of an inquisitive, sensitive child explorer.
Each of the seven painstakingly tailored looks represents a pivotal moment or character the prince encounters in his planet-hopping journey from innocence to experience. The sumptuous coats, bloomers and intricate closures hearken to historical Edwardian pieces (as shown in Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve’s 2014 La Belle et la Bete, another tale of redemption featuring a rose) and the golden age of Versailles.
Anyone can become a little prince; all it takes is courage, kindness and imagination. With this collection, Song & Pouch wishes you many sunsets, many loyal fox friends and many simply drawn cardboard boxes filled with the dizzying wonder of childhood.
