Adornment is never anything except a reflection of the heart.”  ~Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel

Quinlin_Zoo_2948Children’s hearts – pure and innocent – are the inspiration for Le Top clothing.  The whimsical designs we create here bring smiles to our faces – but children cannot live on clothes alone…they must have shoes to go out in the world!  When preparing for our Fall 2009 photo shoot we looked around the market and came up with the idea of collaborating with a children’s shoe company, hopefully one with the same design esthetic as ours – the choice was easy, pediped™!  We love the shoes – and knew them first hand, since they had been the choice for many le•top and rabbitmoon outfits for Chris’s grandsons.  Anna Carpio (our Design Room manager and Technical Designer) planned everything with Penny Redlin and Lauren McGlynn at pediped™ footwear over the course of three months to find the perfect accompaniment to each outfit in our collection.  Anna says, “They were so easy to work with. They are very family-oriented like we are and have a fun, quality product. It was a pleasure working with them on this project.” 

For the current season each company will feature the other’s products in their catalogs and marketing materials. “It seemed a natural fit for pediped™ and le•top to share our collections with each other from a styling standpoint. Our collections complement each other well. I think that the result has been fantastic! Congratulations to le•top on another fabulous collection,” says Angela Edgeworth, co-founder and president of pediped™ footwear.

pediped spring summer collection: Harvey

pediped™ footwear spring/summer collection: Harvey

You saw our fabulous “shoe closet” here at le•top a few weeks ago, all thanks to our friends at pediped™ footwear. Well, we just heard from them that their Spring/Summer 2009 collection is now available, and just in time for the warm weather, they’re boasting more sandals than ever! As a designer who admits to being a “shoe-aholic” (is that being redundant?), I appreciate how pediped has styles for every occasion, ensuring that your darlings look their best, while still providing comfort and support. pediped footwear is a natural complement to any le•top or rabbitmoon outfit – spring, summer, fall and winter! They have such a sweet company story, too: in their quest for the perfect soft-soled shoe for their first daughter, Angela and Brian Edgeworth just decided to do it themselves and launched pediped in 2004 – lucky daughter! 😉 This award winning company is known for their exceptional quality, unsurpassed comfort and distinctive styling. You can easily find pediped footwear in stores (in the U.S. and worldwide) or conveniently shop pediped online – they offer more than 120 designs for boys and girls between their two lines, Originals and Flex. Originals are soft-soled shoes for newborns to age 2+, and the Flex line offers rubber-soled shoes for children 1 to 6 years (EU sizes ranging from 17 to 29).
