Must-Have KIDS: Elvis Pompilio x caps Milk Away

Milk Away and the designer Elvis Pompilio join their talents for a 100% Belgian and ethical collaboration.

Aurélie Nickmans, creator of Belgium's very first premium nursing wear brand MILK AWAY, and Elvis Pompilio, a talented and internationally renowned Belgian milliner and hatmaker, have teamed up for the coolest collaboration in the Kingdom: evolving caps that are as cute as they are stylish for newborns and babies.

An eco-responsible production without any waste

At the origin of this collaboration, a common desire: to create unique and exclusive pieces from quality fabrics but always in an eco-responsible, zero waste, and social approach important to both designers. 

That's why the models signed MILK AWAY X ELVIS POMPILIO are all made on demand at from the prototype fabrics of the nursing garments. " Before I could get the perfect model ready for the market, I had many prototypes made. After the launch of MILK AWAY a year ago, I asked myself what I was going to do with all those yards of high quality fabrics (certified cotton GOTS and OEKO-TEX). I couldn't imagine throwing them away. And that's when the idea of calling on Elvis' talent came up," explains Aurélie Nickmans.

And it's true that the hat artist immediately joined the project. If many know his incredible creations that made his success especially with stars and royal families, few know that he loves children and that he started his career by creating caps. So the combo was perfect! 

3 unique handmade models by Elvis Pompilio

Eco-responsible production means limited stocks. The caps will be made on demand by the headwear master according to the remaining stocks of prototypes MILK AWAY . Each cap will be a unique piece. 

The 3 models are designed to evolve over time to suit both newborns and babies (up to about 18 months) thanks to an innovative knot closure at the back of the head.

- The first model (khaki) has small ears and a classic cap visor.

Each cap MILK AWAY X ELVIS POMPILIO will be sold for 250 €. All profits will be donated to a Belgian association that supports foster families. " My sister-in-law is a foster family. It's an approach that is still little known and that touches me personally. I think it's a very beautiful and courageous thing to do and I want to support an association that makes this possible ", says Aurélie Nickmans.
