An abundance of home-grown craftsmanship, bold print and a sophisticated, idiosyncratic use of layered colours and textures make up the very essence of Caramel. Founded in 1999 by Eva Karayiannis, Caramel was originally conceived to challenge traditional, limited perceptions of childrenswear and deliver a strong, distinctive aesthetic of fresh silhouettes. Season after season Karayiannis successfully balances the classic and contemporary.
Today there are 10 stores in 5 countries and Caramel is also sold through 100 independent retailers. Recent openings include a second store in Moscow and Kuwait.
