contemporary baby & toddler clothing

Janie & Jack
This is Gymboree's upscale sister chain (kind of like what Banana Republic is to the Gap). The style is predominantly classic and traditional. Each season another series of subtly themed collections is introduced -- past examples include the Japanese inspired Cherry Blossoms collection, English Autumn, Summer Boardwalk and On Safari. Preemie-8 years.
Shipping: USA only

Mini Boden
This is a U.K.-based catalog company that does a lot of business in the States. Orders ship from London with a $10 flat rate shipping fee. Any returns can be sent to their Pennsylvania address, so you don't have to deal with international shipping. Their baby clothing styles remind me a lot of Hannah Andersson. Sizes Newborn to Adult.
Shipping: USA & International

Hanna Andersson
Traditional, kid-friendly styles that aren't too grown up. Half of the clothes here are Íko-Tex (pronounced echo-tex) certified -- this certification process is widely used in Europe. It tests every piece of clothing (buttons, fabric, thread) for over 100 harmful substances. Unlike most mass market cotton, which is heavily treated with chemicals, Hanna's cotton clothing is minimally treated or organic. Sizes Newborn to 16/18.
Shipping: USA & International

Garnet Hill
This mail-order catalog is similar in style to Hanna Andersson, but it has a smaller selection. The fashions tend to tilt towards the whimsical with bright patterns, appliques, ruffles and other flourishes. Sizes 6 months - 14.
Shipping: USA & International

Tea Collection
Each seasonal collection of Tea draws inspiration from different cultures from around the world. Here you'll find a tunic patterned after a mosaic found in a Turkish palace or a kimono wrap collared floral jacket inspired by a vintage Japanese textile pattern.
USA (no PO Boxes, APO/FPO & US Territories) only

J. Crew
J. Crew's "Crew Cuts" collection of kidswear is contemporary with a preppy twist. Unfortunately, it doesn't carry infant clothes -- just toddler and kid sizes.
Sizes: 2-10 years old

Shipping: USA (including PO Boxes, APO/FPO & US Territories), Canada & Japan
