We believe that baby gear should be an extension of your personal style – and that is exactly what Rachel Zoe represents.
“I remember around one year ago when we were opening our Happy Mothers boutique in Newbury Park California, our inspiration was to present fashion as a life style for future moms. I’m so happy now that more baby manufacturers sees gear as fashion accessories which are not only useful, but also keep a stylish fashionable line, and this is exactly what you will find in Rachel Zoe’s new collection.”

Quinny and Maxi-Cosi, premier European brands of Dorel Juvenile, a segment of Dorel Industries (TSX: DII.B, DII.A), and the world’s largest juvenile products manufacturer in its categories, today announced its most luxurious collection yet, launching globally, from renowned designer, stylist and editor Rachel Zoe. Rachel Zoe x Quinny and Maxi-Cosi merges the brands’ design-forward, high quality and industry leading safety with Zoe’s unparalleled, award-winning fashion sensibility.
“We’re proud to collaborate with a designer of Rachel Zoe’s caliber,” said Dan Pennacchio, General Manager of Premium Brands at Dorel Juvenile USA. “Our partnership with Rachel once again asserts our expertise in providing style-conscious parents with the latest in designer baby gear. Her insights into the worlds of design and motherhood are captured in the collection’s chic, yet classic and functional aesthetic.”
With nearly two decades of experience in design and fashion, Zoe has become a household name embodying sophisticated, timeless style and Hollywood glamour. From designing her eponymous collection, and authoring two New York Times bestselling books, to acting as Editor-in-Chief of digital style destination The Zoe Report, and most recently returning to TV with Lifetime’s “Fashionably Late with Rachel Zoe,” her influence continues to grow. A mom to two young sons, Zoe’s recent, highly-acclaimed maternity wear collection for A Pea in the Pod exemplifies her ever-expanding appeal to women everywhere.
“I am a designer, but first and foremost a mother, so it’s extremely important for me to never sacrifice comfort for style — this is true when dressing my children and as a working mother myself,” said Rachel Zoe. “Quinny and Maxi-Cosi are the epitome of chic and sophisticated baby gear. As a long-time customer and supporter of the brand, I am so honored and excited to team up with Quinny and Maxi-Cosi to design exclusive pieces inspired for the mother on the go.”
The new collection designed by Rachel Zoe for Quinny and Maxi-Cosi is truly one of a kind, inspired by the jetsetter lifestyle and paying homage to the luxurious detail found in the design of vintage leather luggage. Premium cognac leather and oversized gold detailing complement classic black and white fabric for a look that is tailored to perfection, allowing parents to walk their way in style. The collection includes:
- Quinny® Moodd
- Maxi-Cosi® Mico Max 30
- Maxi-Cosi® Pria 85
- Quinny Diaper Bag
“We were excited to exclusively unveil the collection to retailers today at the ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas,” said Paul Powers, CEO of Dorel Juvenile USA. “Parents have long-loved the modern design of Quinny strollers and the industry leading safety features of Maxi-Cosi car seats. This collection delivers on both.”
The Rachel Zoe x Quinny and Maxi-Cosi Collection will be available first at Nordstrom in spring 2016, followed by specialty baby stores nationwide (including Happy Mothers). The collection is expected to range from approximately $200 to $850. For more information you can visit www.quinny.com/rachelzoecollection and www.maxi-cosi.com/rachelzoecollection.
