SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pottery Barn Kids, a member of the Williams-Sonoma, Inc. (NYSE:WSM) portfolio of brands, announced today plans for a new product collaboration with renowned bridal, ready-to-wear and accessory designer, Monique Lhuillier. Composed of over seventy pieces for nursery, bedroom, and playroom, the ‘Monique Lhuillier for Pottery Barn Kids’ collection captures Lhuillier’s sophisticated and glamorous design aesthetic. The collection is inspired by her own experience as a mother creating serene and magical nurseries and bedrooms for her children. The capsule collection, which is Lhuillier’s first entry into children’s home furnishings, will debut in March 2016.
“I have always been inspired by the delightful fantasy of special occasions,” said designer Monique Lhuillier. “Becoming a parent is a very special and emotional life event that allows you to see life through the eyes of your child. As a parent, I believe it’s important to create a space that reflects your child’s personality, inspires creativity, and brings a sense of calm to the energetic lifestyles parents and kids lead. I’m very excited about the collection I’ve created with Pottery Barn Kids that marries the functionality needed for baby and kids’ spaces with contemporary, whimsical, and magical design.”
“We are excited to collaborate with Monique Lhuillier to design a collection for Pottery Barn Kids,” said Sandra Stangl, President, Pottery Barn Brands. “Her elevated design approach has been a catalyst in the making of this enchanting collection. Monique has beautifully translated her fashionable runway designs and luxe details into a stunning collection for baby and kids home furnishings. We cannot wait to share the new collection with our customers.”
The ‘Monique Lhuillier for Pottery Barn Kids’ collection will be available March 2016 at Pottery Barn Kids stores and online at www.potterybarnkids.com.
