Harrods celebrates childrenswear

Dapper menswear for little boys
Every time I find myself in Knightsbridge lately I find an invisible magnet drawing me up to the fourth floor of Harrods. It's not just the glorious range of kids labels (from Bonpoint to Caramel and Sonia Rykiel) or the pretty new 'childrens 'lifestyle' department with a huge range of goods by the Little White Company but the ginormous toy section. A high level of restraint is required.

Now there's one more reason to go. This month, Harrods will be unveiling tailoring for boys by classic Brit brand Turbull & Asser. The collection includes suits, smoking jackets (!) and shirts in the style of its menswear. Every weekend in September a Turnbull & Asser tailor will be on hand to offer a made-to-measure service. For girls, David Charles, the designer known for creating dreamy party dresses for ages 2 upwards, will be in store the coming weekend (Sat 11th-Sun 12th Sept) offering 'bespoke fitting' appointments where clients can choose from fabrics and embellishments. What fun.

Harrods, 87-135 Brompton Rd, London, SW1X 7QN (020 7730 1234/www.harrods.com) Open 10am-8pm Mon-Sat, noon-6pm Sun.
