Kidswear store in the CBD.

If it wasn’t for the tulle dresses and toy houses at the shopfront, you wouldn’t have guessed that this wood-and-white bou­tique be­longed to Le Pe­tit So­ci­ety, a lo­cal chil­drenswear and ac­ces­sories la­bel by Robyn Liang and Dy­lan Ong.

The mum-and-dad duo de­sign comfy cloth­ing that steer away from con­ven­tion­ally kiddy looks, while still be­ing fun, ver­sa­tile and age-ap­pro­pri­ate. Their first bou­tique looks the part, too, with a min­i­mal­ist, in­dus­trial-Scandi store de­sign that fea­tures nat­u­ral and tex­tures sur­faces like con­crete screed, cop­per ac­cents and raw ply­wood.

“We wanted a de­light­ful en­vi­ron­ment that was at­trac­tive to both kids and adults. The twi­light sky-in­spired ceil­ing adds a play­ful touch, while the party ta­ble is per­fect for par­ents to get to­gether,” says Yan­ling Tay, founder of Ta.le Ar­chi­tects, which de­signed the shop. To cre­ate a sense of wan­der and won­der, the bou­tique is pep­pered with tri­an­gu­lar sil­hou­ettes and mo­tifs that re­sem­ble moun­tains. Ta.le Ar­chi­tects also de­signed The Playpen, an an­gu­lar struc­ture made up of mod­u­lar pieces; pri­mar­ily used as a dis­play case, it can be trans­formed into a cosy sto­ry­telling cor­ner or a shoe-fit­ting area.

Le Pe­tit So­ci­ety’s trendy range of cloth­ing, ac­ces­sories and toys fill the store with a vi­brant ar­ray of colours, while the pom-poms and grille gate give the shop an eclec­tic touch.
