Here in Rome, we have a very special little second shop for children clothes : L'armadio di Oliver! It belongs to Oliver's mom - Claudia, a dear friend of mine!

An interior designer and photographer by trade, Claudia - a Danish girl who came to Rome 14 years ago, opened her trendy second-hand store after the birth of her son Oliver. 

Because sometimes those little cute clothes deserve a second life.

Claudia put together an excellent collection of French, Scandinavian, Dutch and American brands. They are presented clean and pressed as if they were new. 

Here are my favourites of the fall selection:
