Elephantito Mary Janes

Elephantito Mary Janes

A pair of Mary Janes come with all kinds of classic connotations: the quintessential, well-dressed American children; the perfectly coiffed ponytails; the wholesome crowd at baseball games and birthday parties. Well-crafted, comfortable, durable, but so feminine with its famous instep strap, Mary Janes have been a staple for little girls for as long as we can remember. 

 

 

Sometimes, however, classic styles need a dose of modern energy and values. Most little girls in the United States aren’t called Mary or Jane anymore. Richly diverse, our little superstars have names from all over the world: from Latin America, China, Ghana, Indonesia, France, Russia, and more. They wear Mary Janes to their robotics competitions or debate events or meetings of their service clubs. 

 

 

Elephantito has carried the aesthetic of the old Mary Jane into the new generation.  Our Mary Janes have durable, flexible soles, because we don’t expect little girls to stand by the sidelines when boys are wild at play.  Like all our shoes, our Mary Janes are lovingly made by expert shoe artisans. This timeless construction comes to life in metallics— gold and silver and a bronzy blush— and flamingo pinks, chili reds, and fierce patents. Bright outsoles, flower decals, leopard prints, suede peek-a-boo styles. We like to say our Mary Janes aren’t for plain Janes, after all.

 

 

Elephantito is all about new takes on old styles. There’s nothing better than continuity through change.  Our Mary Janes are available for babies, toddlers, kids, and tweens, because classic is more adaptable than you might think.

Like Spring, our children are the best season of our lives

Like Spring, our children are the best season of our lives

When spring arrives, it’s an occasion. As parents, we welcome it with impressive spring cleaning and wardrobe changes, with a return to the outdoors and a grateful bit of sun. There are new flowers peeking out in the garden, joyful Easter brunches and egg hunts. The world is lighter and brighter than it was just a few weeks before. 
When we design our Spring collections every year, we’re guided by the understanding that being around your children is a little like having Spring arrive every day. Children are always blooming, growing, and reinventing themselves. There’s nothing drab, cold, or wintery about them. And really, they are a chance for us to do it all over again. Like Spring, our children are the best season of our lives.
 
That’s why at Elephantito, Easter is our favorite holiday, a focal point of our Spring collections. With room for both innovation and timeless return, our Easter-inspired clothing and shoes capture a kind of freshness that will always come back in style.
 
And there’s no need to worry about convincing your child to pose for those all-so-special- and sometimes too difficult to achieve!— family photos. Our comfortable, durable, kid-friendly products will do all the convincing for you. Energetic pastels and flexible, breathable leather will be your children’s best ally in the annual Easter egg hunt. With a win like that under their belts, who wouldn’t want to pose and smile?

Get Suri Cruise's adorable look this Spring

Get Suri Cruise's adorable look this Spring

Suri Cruise's fashion game is enviable. We all love to see the pictures of her out enjoying New York with her equally fashionable mom Katie Holmes. This adorable girl has the best flats in the land, so much so that I'm dying for my own adult version of her shoe closet. Considering this, it's no surprise that for this month's fashion inspiration we would go way back into the archive and choose this beautiful look to recreate with a fresh new take that's fitting for the warmer weather that is awaiting us this Spring.

 The Love Red Smocked Dress currently on sale for $50.40 features a round piece with Piping accent in the neckline and is lightweight.

The real show stopper here are Suri's beautiful and versatile silver ballet flats. At Elephantito, we have the perfect pair to complete this look. The French Ballet Flats in silver for $73.00, give this dress just enough glitz, wouldn't you say?

These beautiful pieces are one of a kind and made at our factory in Peru and go perfectly with Suri's relaxed yet elegant style. Something we think she get's from her impeccably dressed momma.

Stay tuned for more celebrity inspired look recreations.
