Brand：POURQUOI means “why” in French, and it is a child’s favorite question. Experimenting with new inspirations and unconventional thoughts, the designer mixes fun and fantasy elements into her creations, turning each piece of clothing into a little riddle. Each piece contains some hidden details, as “little secrets”, which give the wearer the feeling of a child who experiences never-ending surprises.
