Thoughts :

Minimalist Baby & Kids’ Clothing?

POSTED Jul 29, 2014

Last Friday, there was an article in the Wall Street Journal on the increase in minimalist fashion for kids. Designer baby & toddler clothing brands like Neige, Makie, Album di Famiglia, and Vince were all cited as examples of lines who offer more elegant and sophisticated pieces that stand in stark contrast to the graphic t-shirts, light-up sneakers, and sequin girls’ tutus that kids know and love. The pieces are still sweet and playful (think empire waist girls’ dresses or liberty prints), but more understated and chic. The author writes:

“American parents are increasingly taking a page from their European counterparts and outfitting their kids in more tasteful fare. Think pared-down cotton dresses for girls and engineer-stripe pants and logo-free T-shirts for boys.

“There’s a growing trend toward minimalism, toward something that’s a little more timeless, a little more quality,” said Adrienne Sugden, the designer and owner of Neige, a California-based company that designs children’s clothes that are classic with clean lines…  [Sugden] began to entertain the idea of starting her own children’s line and noticed that the kids’ department was in need of a refresh. She saw the category as either overly decorated or far too traditional and conservative. Her wares have a sense of playfulness—”not scaled-down adult clothes,” in her words—and a refreshing sense of simplicity.”

Reading the comments & tweets in response to the article was fascinating. On one hand, kids may resist these neutral basics in favor of logo-filled t-shirts for boys or elaborate dress-up costumes for girls. And then there is the cost factor. But there is also an argument to made for purchasing high-quality pieces that are ethically produced and will be passed down for years (as opposed to their disposable, polluting counterparts). Plus, kids are so sweet as is that perhaps additional colors & details are unnecessary. Thoughts?

Baby Clothes Imps & Elfs Fall 2014

 

Our Imps & Elfs fall 2014 collection has arrived and is available to order! Hailing all the way from the Netherlands, the baby and toddler designer clothing brand is loved for its high-quality and organic cotton clothes that emphasize fit and function. The line forgoes fancy frills and overly-complicated details for simpler pieces that work well with baby & toddlers’ growing bodies and personalities, resulting in collections that are equal parts adorable, practical, and eco-friendly. According to one of the line’s founders, “the design of the clothes should complement the child rather than overrule him. That is why it suits almost every child.”

The Imps & Elfs AW 14/15 collection features durable, warm, and versatile pieces you’ll be reaching for all season long: baby one-piece rompers and hats in an adorably clever ace of cards or hearts print, cozy sweatpants and hoodie sweatshirts, and even baby’s first pair of denim jeans!

Here’s a first look at Bobo Choses AW14 collection, A Day in L.A.! Here’s what the Spanish brand has to say:

Bobo Choses presents A Day in L.A., its new AW14/15 collection. A collection inspired by Los Angeles and the imaginary of the 50s: the glamour of the movie stars at Chateau Marmont, a walk through Sunset Boulevard, or the swans at Echo Park lake.

The cast: jersey, twill, fleece, and denim garments, along with leopard fur coats, hairy jackets, and shinny pants. With Bobo’s characteristic prints playing the starring role, the collection represents the magic, the boldness, and the fun of spending a day in L.A. Finally, a dream come true!

A DAY IN L.A.

In the morning at Echo Park, vain palm trees
look at themselves in the mirroring waters,
while swans praise them for their hairstyles.

What I saw is what I say, it’s just a day in L.A.

At noon on Sunset Boulevard, cartoons take a
break from the screens and birds that go for a
walk take off their hats to greet each other.

What I saw is what I say, it’s just a day in L.A.

In the evening, at the movie theatre, a giant peanut
shushes a couple of fur coats that won’t let him listen
to the film’s dialogues because they don´t stop chatting.

What I saw is what I say, it’s just a day in L.A.

At night, over the skies of Venice Beach,
stars that weren’t featured in the movies show
off their best splendor hoping to pass the casting.

What I saw is what I say, it’s just a day in L.A.

What pieces are you most looking forward to? Shop the Bobo Choses spring collection, now on sale, & stay tuned for more information on fall!
