After 25 years in the kid business, Simone Lizmi knows how to stylishly and comfortably outfit children, especially their wee feet. Although Lizmi’s business has a new name and location in Uptown Park Shopping Center (near Champps Americana restaurant), it’s actually a rebrand of familiar upscale children’s store Kidswear & Shoes, previously located in Galleria III. The new 2,000-square-foot Isabel et Noa boutique is playfully designed by New York designer Krishna Fitzpatrick in bright colors reflective of Isabel et Noa’s confetti-laden logo, which is also a design of Fitzpatrick’s. The shop continues its multi-decade tradition of offering and expertly fitting the best names in American and European children’s shoes, including Naturino, Geox, Teva, Kickers, Stuart Weitzman, Pediped, Puma, Ralph Lauren and Lacoste. European-inspired kids’ clothing includes the colorful Canadian designer Deux par Deux, plus French labels for girls and fetching French and Italian suits for boys. Isabel et Noa currently caters to children ages 2 to 12 and stocks shoes in sizes 19 to 38 EU (3 to 7 U.S.). 1121-07 Uptown Park Blvd., 713.960.6099.
