Once Upon a Time
Laura Salsi

As a child, I daydreamed about becoming the "prime minister" of some remote village. I wanted to work with children, make them play, teach them how to read and write... But sometimes life surprises you. And here I am, after 23 years spent in fashion, working with children in a different but equally stimulating way. I have always liked to interpret their style with imagination and carefree joy. My secret?

I put myself in their shoes.

Once upon a time, that’s how I would like to start this fairy tale full of little pieces, from bucolic dresses to rigorously handmade bon-ton styles. A tailoring mix linked to longstanding traditions that have survived up to the present day.
 
The velvet dress adorned with a lace collar is so romantic. Perfect for a little afternoon snack in the countryside between wildflowers and bon-chic twirls
With its big ears and long eyelashes, the wooden rocking chair recalls the games of the past.
A tender combination: the sweater with contrasting inlays, the dungaree skirt, the wool cap with the pom-pom, and slippers. A look so sweet that it is impossible to resist.
A smart look, two bright eyes, and a lot of red curls. The Le petit coco little girl loves wildflowers, frou-frou gilets, and stretchy jeans to run across green meadows with her best friends.
 
The printed romper goes perfectly with the two-tone cardigan, the striped T-shirt, and the slippers with socks. As in a fairytale, piglets and long-eared bunnies live together in style…
This green collection featuring little linen pieces, all rigorously Made in Italy, is spontaneous and natural. A refined wardrobe with a sustainable soul that mothers love too.
A funny face stands out on the socks-slippers with cartoon designs, perfect for little feet always on the move.
A melody of pleats and Liberty flowers print colors the wardrobe of the L’Orsobruno little girl with a romantic nostalgia for a "farm village" style.
The flower print dress worn with a mini cardigan and bonnet, complete with ears, is an expression of poetic escapism. A refined style with a bucolic soul, perfect for a trip out of town with mom and dad.
