Finding classic, sophisticated clothes for young girls is all too easy, but the task can be harrowing when shopping for little boys. Babysusu aims to solve this dilemma by creating a collection ($66-$120) for boys ranging in age from 6 months to 4 years. The pieces boast a modern twist on classic looks. Using all-natural fabrics such as cotton, wool, and cashmere, the clothes are luxe but comfortable enough for a child. For fall, parents will find sweaters made from sensible cotton and cashmere blends, or long-sleeved T-shirts with adorably scary animals, such as snakes, printed on them. The color palette is simple and understated, consisting largely of shades of cream, navy, light blue, and brown.
