Zef in Paris: Casual chic clothing for children.

Chic and fashionable Parisians dress their kids in Zef clothes. Designer Mariu De Andreis, the daughter of Italian fashion photographer Paolo Roversi, captures the perfect French bobo (bourgeois-bohème) look for her line of kids’ clothing Zef. The quality of fabrics, the elegant patterns, the ethnic touch, the casual yet sophisticated clothes definitely set this brand apart. It is classic and hip, timeless and modern. Sizes range from new born to 12 years old.
Also, the accessories are very tasteful and I can easily imagine grown ups shopping for themselves at Zef!
