Featuring playful and colorful esthetics, Deux par Deux, the Quebec-based label created by fashion entrepreneurs Claude Diwan and Maurice Elmaleh, turned the children’s ‘ready-to-wear’ market upside down in 1982, introducing a flamboyant style with European influences. “The world’s children represent gaiety, innocence, and freedom, so we designed a brand of clothing that reflects this,” pronounced Claude Diwan in 1986. Through its audacious, fantastic collections, the company quickly assumed a leadership role as a Canadian innovator in children’s fashion.
Deux par Deux’s mission is to design and to manufacture clothing of superior quality, decorated with amusing designs and playful messages, punctuated by sparkling colors. From layettes to snowsuits, offering a range of clothing for day-to-day wear and special occasions, Deux par Deux outfits newborns to 36-month olds, as well as older children from 2 years old to 12 years old.
Made with ultra-comfortable, cozy materials, Deux par Deux’s fashions are ideally suited for the active lifestyles of children. Parents appreciate that Deux par Deux clothes are easy to wash and to maintain. Painstaking care is taken with respect to the patterns to optimize children’s mobility.
Our captivating world, filled with creativity, fantasy, and vitality, has inspired Deux par Deux to create children’s clothing that reflects the faces of children throughout the world, via simplicity and the richness and diversity of their culture. Deux par Deux’s team has traveled the globe, photographing and gathering images of charming faces of children who later become symbols of Deux par Deux’s collections.
When photographing children in the Caribbean, Saint Petersburg in Russia, a Berber village in Morocco, or in the steppes of Mongolia, Deux par Deux’s team seeks to discover the radiant, unique and unknown beauties of life. “The world’s young girls share something extraordinary that surpasses cultural borders: each one is cuter than the last, affirming their joy in life and freshness in front of the camera,” said Claude Diwan.
The hallmarks of Deux par Deux’s thirty-year evolution have been a steadfast commitment to superior quality as well as a distinct international style and a global outlook. Driven by creative and experienced designers, and supported by a well trained customer service staff eager to understand our clients’ needs, Deux par Deux’s team works in a friendly and professional environment.
