My name is Irina. I’m the founder of Lola + the Boys: a chic, Chicago-based kids’ clothing company.
I’ve been involved in the fashion industry for many years. I started my career as a model and soon fell in love with fashion and the freedom to express yourself through your apparel. It inspired me to open a women’s boutique. This endeavor was put on hold, however, when I had my beautiful daughter, Lola. I was thrilled to have a lovely little girl! I began designing and hand-making dresses for her, and found such joy in dolling her up.
Currently, I have three children. Being their mother has been my greatest adventure. Now, I’m combining my two passions, my children and fashion, and setting out to curate a collection of playful and trendy kids’ clothing so parents can dress their darlings in style.
I know – parenthood is busy. It’s hard to find the time to search for the perfect party dress or new pair of pants for your little ones. That’s where Lola + the Boys comes in. We do the hard work of hand selecting the latest and greatest in children’s fashion, so it’s easy for you to find looks that you love. We believe that kids’ clothing should be as unique and fun as they are, which is why we carry looks that vary in style, from boho-chic to rocker-cool. Your kids can wear our looks from the playground to a wedding and everywhere in-between.
I hope you enjoy our collection (I know your little ones will!) and come along on this journey with us.
