Right Bank Babies Shoppe to bow at Hollywood + Highland

October 8, 2009 |  8:00 am
Sure, buying swanky baby clothes might not be high on your list of priorities right now. But if outfitting your bambino in Carter's cotton is losing its luster, you'll be happy to hear that one of the most froufrou of all baby brands, Right Bank Babies, is launching its own store at the Hollywood + Highland complex.

Slated to open Oct. 15, the Right Bank Babies Shoppe will feature the brand's delightfully over-the-top signature pieces (which are all reversible, so if Betty dribbles meatball down her dress, there's an instant fix.)
Right-Bank-2 This isn't the place to hunt down baby basics; boy's T-shirts cost a whopping $22.50. But that's not the point. The 4-year-old brand specializes in iconic adult looks -- i.e., kimonos, crested cardigans, pantaloons -- shrunk down to pint sizes. Think your offspring is adorable now? Wait until you see her looking like a mini Princess Grace in a metallic brocade shift and pearls.

The brand was conceived in 2005 after founder Ellen Uzarowicz had trouble finding fetching clothes for her two young daughters, Evie and Harlow. The forthcoming Hollywood store, which will be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week, will feature the label's full collection of apparel -- priced from about $50 to $100 for signature pieces -- along with irresistible shoes, hair clips, hats and a clutch of one-of-a-kind pieces, from silk gauchos to reversible skirts in exotic fabrics. Frivolous? You betcha.
