The UK based maternity line has recently launched at over 100 Destination Maternity® and A Pea in the Pod® stores nationwide and online at destinationmaternity.com and apeainthepod.com. Destination Maternity offers select pieces from the Séraphine Spring/Summer 2014 collection including separates and dresses. Destination Maternity will also exclusively sell Séraphine’s signature Jolene Dressthe very same dress that was worn by The Duchess of Cambridge in her famous family portrait.

On Friday April 4th and Saturday April 5th, founder and head designer, Cecile Reinaud, visited Destination Maternity Madison Avenue and Paramus for two great events. Guests were able meet Cecile and shop the gorgeous new collection while enjoying mocktails and light bites from PICNIC Catering and Events. Mama Mio provided pampering hand and arm massages with their updated collection of products and butter LONDON™ provided mini manicures with our newest assortment of on-trend shades.

In honor of the launch of Séraphine at Destination Maternity and A Pea in the Pod, Cecile answers five questions about her brand, style and inspiration:

Describe your brand in three words.

Parisian-chic pregnancy.

What inspires you when designing?

I take inspiration from my native city of Paris to create the overall feeling of my collections, then I look at catwalk shows, trends and styles I see on the street to hone my ideas. First and foremost, I’m always inspired by the beautiful curves of the pregnant figure. I love to design styles that will grow and adapt to a woman’s changing shape, and can be worn before, during and after pregnancy.

What are the three key pieces every mom-to-be should own?

A flattering pair of maternity jeans, A little black maternity dress, and a stylish scarf for accessorizing.

How would you style your favorite piece from the collection?

My favorite piece is the Short Sleeve V-neck Twist Front Maternity Shirt – it’s so versatile! I’d wear it with skinny jeans for a casual look, or with leather pants and heels for a more vamped up evening look.

What celebrity mom or mom-to-be do you admire for their fashion choices?

We’ve been honored to dress a number of super stylish celebrity moms in Séraphine and it’s always a pleasure to see how they each wear our clothes differently to suit their own style. I loved seeing Gwen Stefani in our clothes recently – as a designer herself, she really nailed her pregnancy style.

Five Tips for a Seamless Transition Into Spring

Cold, blustery days are almost gone and warmer temperatures will soon be on their way. Here are five fashion tips to follow for an easy transition into spring:

  • Pretty Pastels: Glamour Magazine says pastels are one of the most “wearable trends” from the Spring 2014 runways. Add some color into your wardrobe with light and airy sweaters or bright colored denim that can easily transition you into spring.
  • Flower Power: Incorporate some floral prints like this ultra-feminine, Jessica Simpson floral blouse to complement key pieces of your wardrobe.
  • The Novel Jacket: Swap your winter coat for a lighter option.  Ditch heavier outerwear for a jacket with a sleek and edgy vibe; think faux-leather and Moto jackets.
  • The Finishing Touch: Nail polish is a fun and easy way to incorporate the trendiest spring colors into your wardrobe. Try one of our new Butter London nail lacquers in a variety of on-trend shades.

Inspiration Behind the Design: A Pea in the Pod’s Spring Collection

Property of Destination Maternity Corporation

A Pea in the Pod’s spring collection evokes a casual, nautical style that is perfect for warmer weather.  From chambray blues and preppy stripes to comfortable linen fabrics, the A Pea in the Pod Design Team focused on sea-inspired colors for this season’s collection:

“Our ‘Port of Call’ delivery for spring is based on sea faring islands with a soft vintage feel. The collection includes a wide array of bold stripes, crochet work, mixed media, mosaic and paisley prints paired with light wash denim. An indigo and chambray blue color story is the foundation of this group with pops of fuchsia and an increasing presence of white, which we will continue into the summer season.”

Key pieces include a flowy, 3/4 Sleeve Dress in a blue and white mosaic print, perfect for your spring baby shower. Spring’s must-have chambray convertible sleeve shirt creates a casual-chic look when paired with our Secret Fit Belly® Linen Cargo Pocket Maternity Crop Pants. Our bump-flattering Cap Sleeve Boat Neck Maternity T Shirt combined with our Secret Fit Belly® Cuffed Maternity Crop Jeans will keep you both comfortable and stylish throughout the season
