Isossy Children's Little Sapeurs

Kids clothing label Isossy Children's little sapeurs collection.

Kids clothing label Isossy Children's recent lookbook caught our eye due to this boys collection featuring sapeur-inspired outfits; the label states, "think little sapeurs, think dapper gentlemen and smooth style." Founded by Amanda Rabor in 2010 and crafted in England, Isossy Children stands for a global culture, "In times of change and diverse living, fashion can reflect diverse cultures for up-and-coming generations to own, to claim and to wear in everyday life. It’s for the new global citizens of the world" says Amanda of her brand. With an African-inspired touch and a contemporary direction, this one's definitely a great catch for the little ones, specially as younger generations become increasingly aware of their sartorial choices. Scroll through our gallery above to view the photographs and if you want to talk about it, tweet @okayafrica with #littlesapeurs.
