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.

This season, our Holiday Collection is a mix of luxe styles that are high on drama. From jewels to beading to lustrous fabrics rendered in sexy silhouettes primed to show off your shape, the A Pea in the Pod Design Team drew on all things glam for this season’s collection:

“For the holiday season, we focused on the Baroque period, a time known for exquisite detail and ornamentation. Through the use of lace, shine and luxurious fabrics in black, gold and a beautiful Bordeaux red, each style creates a perfect ensemble for holiday parties and events.”

Key pieces include a cozy cable knit maternity sweater in shimmering black lurex; fashion’s current “it” look, faux leather trim maternity leggings; and a party-perfect jersey knit embellished maternity dress.

We are thrilled with Pantone’s choice for Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid!

A drastic change from last year’s bold emerald, we can’t wait to wear the soft yet statement-making shade on everything from tops to bottoms to dresses. This captivating color will certainly enhance your pregnancy glow!

“Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health.” -Pantone

Grey Crush

If you haven’t heard already, take it from us, grey is the new black. A cool take on a color that goes with just about anything, grey exhibits the moody depth we love to wear with all of the season’s trends. A shade that lends a bit of edge to your maternity look, try pairing a chunky grey knit, bump-skimming top or a fabulous coat with deep blue skinny jeans or leggings with a touch of leather. Dressed up with some sparkle or dressed down to lounge, grey without a doubt, the IT color.
