Tartan, Taffeta and Tulle: A Jacadi Christmas

Family celebrations and holiday portraits are just around the corner. We’re searching for worthy investment pieces with heirloom potential that will never look dated. Once again, we turn to timeless children’s wear from Jacadi.

We recently reviewed Jacadi’s Jazz Age-inspired Thanksgiving outfits, and now the French brand delivers a breath-taking ‘Noel’ collection, an assortment of Christmas clothing and accessories with an emphasis on updated classics.

For Noel, Jacadi collaborated with renowned children’s wear designer Catherine Painvain (founder of the Tartine et Chocolate boutique chain). Painvain cites the aesthetics of Ralph Lauren and Chanel as creative touchstones, and the influence of these storied designers is readily apparent in the Noel’s rich heritage references and effortless luxury. The resulting collection reflects two separate settings for the holidays: a rustic ski resort in the French Alps and a vibrant, bustling Parisian cityscape.

For the mountains, Painvain created Nordic–inspired jacquard sweaters and traditional tartan prints in red, green and winter white. On our must-have list? An updated J-kilt with fringed trim and embroidered coat of arms. Drop-waist flannel frocks with pretty pleats and plaid accents will become welcome hand-me-downs. Little boys revel in the comfort of tailored corduroy trousers and button front shirts.

Back in the City of Light, polished and poised velveteen dresses resemble perfectly wrapped presents with grosgrain bows and matching tights and accessories. The palette is a deep navy blue, and coordinating angora sweaters will be worn long into the New Year. The pièce de résistance is a herringbone wool blazer for boys with a charming reindeer embroidered crest.

A wardrobe of well-made classics is gift you give your family for generations to come. Start a stylish tradition this season with Jacadi.
