Chic Italian-Egyptian, mother, model and actress Elisa Sednaoui has designed a mother-and-child collection called ‘Little-a-Like’. This collection, which is exclusively created for Yoox, features lovely pieces for boys, girls, babies and mothers. Inspiration was drawn from the beautiful textile traditions of Egypt. All of the profits goes to the Elisa Sednaoui Foundation, a charity which helps children and young people in Egypt and Italy. “The main inspiration for patterns and embroidery are the ones from the Egyptian Bedouin tradition,” says the London-based Sednaoui whose son Jack is about to turn one. “As for the women’s and girls’ pieces, I thought about those which to me are the classic indispensable summer shapes: the long dress, the long-sleeved tunic, and the striped light dress to wear at the beach. For babies I thought of what my son had worn the most last summer, like T-shirts and light-weight shirts with his nappy.”
