A quote from a client or journalist : “It’s all about the details. Their sense for great style. Minimalistic forms becoming great with their choice of fabrics. It’s sophisticated with a classical twist and yet very contemporary in style. The finest fabrics are always locally outsourced. So the tag 100% made in Portugal is their proof of quality and their support to the local community. Beautiful.” thecoolheads.com or “ If La Paz is my favorite portuguese clothing brand for adults, Wolf & Rita is their equivalent for kids. Adopting traditional production techniques, the portuguese brand presents a beautiful collection for boys and girls, appealing to parents who want to choose a piece for the children as if it were for them. Combining simplicity, timeless design and quality fabrics, the Wolf & Rita is inspired by the past to create stylish pieces for today. The excellent use of color, the fun patterns (without being too childish), the magnificent cut and great attention to detail, make the shirts, skirts and dresses from Wild & Wolf irresistible pieces for little ones!” Ramos Alvaro, oeditorial.com
