If you find a print or fabric from Artipoppe that you love – click to buy because, thanks to new mom (and dad) celebrities and influencers being photographed in the brand’s baby carriers, many of the styles sell out quick (this was the case for me with this one, which has since been restocked). Above Candice Swanepoel is pictured in one of the brand’s baby carriers (and she’s not the only model – Carice van Houten, Christian Serratos and Doutzen Kroes are just a few others). What sets the brand apart is not only their unique prints, but their unique fabrics. They come in everything from machine washable cotton to cashmere to velvet – even wool for colder climates. I ended up getting the black velvet one which turned out to be even more stunning than the tweed one I was originally eyeing. It’s lightweight and feels breathable so baby’s skin can breathe as he/she lies against your heart. The finishes are beautiful (I love their signature logo) and it can easily coordinate with pretty much any outfit. All of the carriers come in a gorgeously printed ready-to-gift sturdy printed box as well as with a dust bag. If there were an Hermes of baby carriers, this would certainly be it. Note, however, that not all styles are machine washable so if you plan on using the carrier as an everyday piece make sure to look for machine washable styles.
Cybex is the go-to for pretty much every A-list celebrity (think Anne Hathaway, Bradley Cooker, Mindy Kaling, Cardi B…). Their classic models are gorgeous, but the limited edition Jeremy Scott designed ones took my breathe away. I mean, wow! The gold frame and angel wings are stunning. The Priam stroller works for newborns to about four year olds and it’s a 3-in-1 travel system meaning the base Priam frame can be paired with the matching carry cot for newborns, with the matching car seat, or it can be used on its own as a stroller. The wheels are all-terrain (light but sturdy) and work smoothly even on bumpy NYC streets. There’s also easy one-hand fold, the seat is reversible, it offers total sun overage with UPF 50+, and it stands when folded, so you can take baby out to dinner without being that parent. The stroller is German made so you know it works just as well as it looks.
If Artipoppe is the Hermes of baby carriers the Cybex Priam by Jeremy Scott is certainly the Hermes of strollers.
