New Seasonless Apparel Children’s Brand Launches
Based in southern California, Dapper + Crown is a recently launched, family-owned children’s apparel brand featuring classic clothes for children that can be worn every day.
Husband and wife team James and Yves Homan are thrilled to have their entire line Made in the USA – manufactured in Los Angeles, California utilizing imported fabrics.
“My clothes were typically made by my aunt or mother and handed down with love from one girl in the family to another,” says designer Mom Yves. “I could wear them to play or on a stylish Sunday drive with my dad, who passed down his innate love of fashion to me.”
Born and raised in the Philippines, she is inspired by reimagining these handcrafted pieces to wear herself or by others. After the Homans had their own daughter, they wanted to bring Yves’ wardrobe tradition to growing families in America.
Dapper + Crown pieces are timeless in design and ageless in quality. Everything is made to be dashing and unique, as well as comfortable and durable:
