About Little English

The company:
Dressing your little ones in timeless styles with fresh fabrics, LE is an upscale lifestyle brand that has been designing classic children's clothing since 2004.

The history:
Growing up in the south, a native Memphian, Shannon Latham, owner and lead designer of Little English, was always inspired by hand sewn clothing mothers and grandmothers made. With a love for traditional styles and a belief that children should be dressed well, but in a way that allows them to simply be children, she launched Little English. As the head of design, Shannon works side-by-side her daughter, Dunn Latham, chief operating officer, to design seasonal collections. Together, they source luxurious fabrics, re-invent classic body styles and continue to seek out the highest quality possible.

The collection:
Little English products feature classic, seasonal fabrics custom made to match the brand's color pallet. Pieces are designed in comfortable, washable fabrics - like pima cotton and soft-washed corduroys - to ensure that the dressing process is easy and that playtime isn't restricted. From smocked bishops to longalls, to bubbles and John johns, Little English provides traditional outfits fitting for all occasions, including everyday wear and special occasions. While the styles are timeless, the design is fashion forward, appealing to the modern mom. Little English can be purchased online or in boutiques across the country.
