The Vitra Design Museum numbers among the world’s leading museums of design. It is dedicated to the research and presentation of design, past and present, and examines design’s relationship to architecture, art and everyday culture. In the main museum building by Frank Gehry, the museum annually mounts two major temporary exhibitions. Smaller parallel shows are presented in the Vitra Design Museum Gallery, a neighbouring exhibition space. Often developed with renowned designers, many of the museum’s exhibitions cover highly relevant contemporary themes, such as future technologies, sustainability or questions like mobility and social awareness. Others address historical aspects or protagonists.
Hello world. We're Tea. Welcome to caring and creation. Discovery and exuberance. Welcome to inspiration and connection. Welcome to our world. Welcome to your world. Like you, we were born to explore it, to experience it with every bit of our souls.
We started Tea in 2002 in San Francisco with 3 pima cotton sweaters and a vision of bringing a fusion of worldwide cultures and modern design to children's clothing.
We design distinctive apparel inspired by the beauty we discover in our travels around the world. From the iconic art and architecture of Barcelona to the graphic boldness of Brazilian street graffiti, we interpret our discoveries into beautiful, modern and consummately wearable children's clothing for ages 0-12. We launched our women's collection in the fall of 2010 in that same spirit. Chic, flattering globally-inspired styles to live and love in.
Tea is available on our flagship website, teacollection.com. You can also experience our collections in specialty and department stores, including Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Saks Fifth Avenue, and more than 300 high-end children's boutiques in the U.S., Canada and Australia.
Discover our current destination. We went there. And we'd love for you to come along with us. It's the inspiration behind our clothes this season (and we go somewhere new every season).
Come share the like with Tea on Facebook. And we've got a blog too. Design. Inspiration. Art. Fun. For you and your kids. Stop by anytime.
We're Tea. We go there. Across the globe. And across the street. Turning our experiences into original designs of unique beauty, modern style and easy comfort. It's how we bring you the world. Come along with us. We can't wait to see you. And definitely bring your kids.

The "BOUSQUET Collection" began in 2003 when Tanja, a South African, and Philippe, a French man, met in the south of France. Both having an artistic background in painting, sculpture, jewellery and architecture, their Love story went even deeper. They live in South Africa after Philippe moved from France where they got married in August 2004. They since the beginning of 2005 share a studio.
Since then a lot has happened. Full cupboards, garage and wendy house; cluttered shelves and draws with collected items. While still creating jewellery, the couple now concentrates on new challenges : lighting, sculptures and objects made of found or waste materials. The file has just opened.

James Perse was born in Los Angeles, California in 1972. James' childhood was split between the beach, the hockey rink and the floor of his father's innovative Los Angeles boutique, Maxfield. With Maxfield at the forefront of putting Los Angeles on the fashion map, James received an incidental education on cutting edge fashion from Europe and Asia, on modern architecture, furniture design and on the elegant and the clean-line.
Ironically, sports led James to his first foray into fashion. Obsessed with baseball caps, he could never find one that was well designed - with quality construction, shape, fabric and coloring. In 1991, James set out to make the ideal cap for Maxfield and it was not long before customers became clients - film directors ordered hats for their cast and crew and record labels bought them for tours.
In 1994 he launched a t-shirt line that rapidly gained loyal fans looking for a seamless blend of luxe and casual. In 1996, James founded his first namesake collection of women's knits, which soon developed into two distinctly wearable collections; Standard James Perse for high-quality basics and James Perse Los Angeles ready-to-wear items, including jackets, sweaters, pants and dresses. In 1998, the brand launched an equally outlined men's collection and later, a line for babies and children.
His passion for minimalist architecture influenced by warm west-coast indoor outdoor living and the casual clothing that's inspired by it, ultimately resulted in James' personal design philosophy and aesthetic - low maintenance high fashion - emphasizing elegance and comfort, pairing sophistication with simplicity. James has applied this visionary approach in every step of defining and developing the brand.
In 2003, James Perse opened its first retail store. The retail environment acts as a medium for conveying the company's culture, ideas and values. James Perse is also available at top specialty retailers such as Barneys New York, Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue and is sold internationally. James Perse launched its online shopping site in 2007 reaching a broader audience. Currently, a boutique hotel that captures the James Perse lifestyle is in development.
