Some are originals, some have been inspired by what we have had the chance to come across over the years but all celebrate the same thing: The joy of being a kid.
I guess you could say that Geraldine and I never got over our "dress-ups'years" - so so much fun! - and being both children of the seventies, how could we not inject some of that "retro" feel into the things we are making today? So yes, there is something a little quaint about OOPI. And we love it.
We love watching children getting so inspired by the pieces of fabrics we put together!

And loads of fun!
WELCOME TO OOPI!
A word about the costumes ....
All the costumes at OOPI are handmade, home screen-printed and each model has been crafted individually. One of the main objective at OOPI is to create comfortable, durable costumes made with good quality fabric - not dreadful, itchy synthetic material, as sadly most children's costumes are made of. Over the years we have collected ideas and inspiration from over the world and quickly realised that quality dress-ups for children often means extravagant price tags. We believed it's not fair ! The other objective at OOPI is to keep a reasonable price. Behind each costume, there are several hours of work (and only two sets of hands) and because of the quality of the fabric we use, we can't sell you these costumes at a "Made in China" price but we believed that long-lasting, fun and comfort should be affordable, and our prices are definitely set to meet these three points.
