frankie & lou stands for sustainable and fair children’s fashion that dances to its own rhythm – wild in the heart, gentle in appearance. frankie & lou takes its freedom and accompanies children with heart and soul on their way into the big, wide world.
frankie & lou sees itself as a provider of a Key Pieces collection that offers sustainable, timeless favourite pieces – which can be combined in many different ways. The children’s fashion label thus turns the classic rhythm of the fashion industry upside down and focuses on seasonal series that complement the Key Pieces collection with new colours, shapes and qualities.
When it comes to sustainability, frankie & lou goes one step further with its pre-loved range. Customers can pass on worn and well-preserved pieces via the children’s fashion label’s homepage.
The soul of frankie & lou is owner and designer Arleny Stegmaier. After many years of working in the textile industry, the Swiss woman with Dominican roots has decided to go her own way – away from the mass production fashion industry, with sustainable and fair standards. With her label frankie & lou, Leny stands for quality and transparency. Furthermore, respect, authenticity and diversity are important basic values for her work.
frankie & lou exclusively uses sustainable, tested for harmful substances in GOTS and OEKO-TEX certified organic quality and, as a sustainable children’s fashion label, wants to take responsibility for people and the environment. frankie & lou is produced in small series in a factory in Portugal and ensures a sustainable and fair production method throughout the entire process.
The name frankie & lou is a synonym for the character of the brand. Frankie, derived from the old German name “Franke”, means to be a free person. Lou, a form of “Ludwig”, stands for a strong and celebrated fighter. It is in this spirit that Leny has found its very own rhythm with frankie & lou.
