Born in 1976 at the hands of Baby and Uri Burnstyn, Baby & Company proudly celebrated its 40th year supplying Seattle with exclusive designers and their relaxed, yet meticulously styled European spirit.
What began as the forging of a pioneering aesthetic within a neighborhood that embraced the same longing has evolved into a sophisticated boutique mirroring its cosmopolitan, world-famous Pike Place district.Read more
As a 1931 issue of Vogue once declared “A woman may and does wear pajamas to quite formal dinners in her own house, to other people’s dinners in town or country if you know them well, and the younger and more iconoclastic members of the female sex even wear them to the theater.”
There’s something acutely charming about donning a luxe pair of tailored loungewear to a fête; a sense of insouciance and ease in reinterpreting the ubiquitous party frock. Apart from the obvious sartorial inclinations, this trend ultimately lends itself to idle, versatile wearability. Dress yourself comfortably for party prep, spend the night out and return home to wind down all in the same bellwether ensemble.

Looking back, Baby & Company owner and buyer Jill Donnelly recounts her beginnings saying, "forty years ago, the store introduced me to a world of fashion I had never seen before--my view of clothing would be changed forever more. Each season my friends and I could not wait to see what crazy fashion Baby would bring into the store. And then there were the displays! Sand covered floors with canvas tents and changing rooms and paper mâché sea creatures with portholes painted on the display windows. Suddenly, other clothing stores felt boring."
Always the explorer, exposure to worldly brands like Castelbajac, Chevignon and Fiorucci shaped Jill’s curiosity for international fashion, sparking her to continually invite her tribe to ‘expect the unexpected’. Today we remain explorers of emerging designers and apparel brought to us each season to discover, and are invited to share the rosy lens that Baby first peered through on a sleepy corner of Seattle back in 1976. On it’s 40th birthday Baby & Company invites us to stay imaginative, open and curious for whatever comes our way.Read more
Emerging from the realms of anonymity, R13’s designer Chris Leba takes credit for putting the brand’s urban-grunge aesthetic on the street-chic map. Launched in 2009, the label leaves their storyline to be defined by their cool-girl denim styles rather than the reputation of their once-Senior VP of Ralf Lauren (an elusive trick used in the past by industry giant Margiela, pre-Galliano).Read more
To many the poetic Mother of punk. The storied, inseparable lover of Robert Mapplethorpe. A style icon of seventies New York girls borrowing from the boys. An unrivaled source of originality, Patti Smith was a shy poet and artist that took to the stage with a whisper starting a quiet riot with her lullaby to growly poetry.Read more
The master of the stark in depth of shadow and height of light. A teller of ancient sacrifice and solemn existences. Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio was the rebel-clad Father of chiaroscuro, the shift from light to dark with little intermediate color.Read more
Medium as material and material as weight. A weight that is the collective thrust of the intellect deciphered and abstracted in paint. Lee Krasner is one of the few women ever given the prestige of a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art.Read more
