Esp No. 1 Organic Chimayo Hoodie
Esp No. 1’s Organic Chimayo Hoodie make it hard to not get excited for fall. Well, at least for the fantastic clothes that are showing up all over the place. This Chimayo-inspired knit is made in the USA out of organic cotton french terry and is sold at Thumbeline. Super comfortable with a cool print – guaranteed to be a major hit.
Rom & Ren Kids Handmade Tank Tops
cool basic from Rom and Ren Kids found on good old Etsy. This little set of tank tops has 2 entirely different prints; one shark teeth, the other hearts. Handmade and offered in 2 color ways (black/red or black/royal blue). Completely unisex in my opinion – girls throw on with a tutu, boys rock with your swim trunks. It’s one of those pieces that can be worn so many different ways. Sweet with a bit of edge, a total keeper.
NICO.NICO Spring 2012
has long been a favorite of mine and I’m once again impressed by the latest collection from NICO.NICO. It’s filled with colorful prints and super comfy styles that kids can live in. And if NICO.NICO is not new to you, then you’ll already know the clothes are made with organic and sustainable fabrics, so many of the styles are unisex, and will get a ton of wear. Get the goods at Tada! Shop and Nonchalant Mom.

the super talented designer Henrik Vibskov comes his latest collection of childrenswear. It consists of unisex pieces that are vibrant, stylish and sure to be the envy on the playground. Although this Danish designer has made his mark in the fashion industry, his pieces aren’t easy to come by. They are available at his stores throughout the world – in Copenhagen, New York, Tokyo, Amsterdam, Moscow, Seoul, Hawaii, and limited online distribution. The amazing kids’ etailer, Kids of Luxury, carries the collection though, so check it out. Perfect pieces for back to school!

No. 1 Spring/Summer 2011
started by a husband-wife team with over a decade of experience in design and music. After working at companies like Ksubi, MoMA and Urban Outfitters, they took their knowledge and created ESP Institute, a place for numerous projects. One of which is No. 1, a line of unisex clothes for kids. The concept came to fruitition after shopping for their own child and realizing there was a void in the kids’ clothing market – it was super hard to find decent priced, sophisticated clothing for little ones. They set out to fill that void, by taking adult silhouettes and catering the pieces to little ones. The line consists of premium denim in a number of washes as well as tops and tees made from ultra soft Japanese cottons. Locally made garments with a simple asthetic but great detail. Modern, versatile, cool without effort – pretty much clothes kids can (and should) live in.

Please tell me..
this comes in my size! I spotted this romper on the fabulous blog Smaller, and there are no words. Now, I don’t know that I would actually buy this for my daughter being that she would mess this beauty up quicker than pig pen, but I sure do like it. Little Warrior is based out of LA and makes unisex kid clothing like nothing I’ve seen. Check out more fantastic pieces from their line here.

Koolabah Striped Turtleneck Hoodie
to make a trendy line that’s also unisex, but Koolabah has done just that. This edgy little kids’ brand makes clothes that combines the functionality Scandinavia is known for with that clean Japanese aesthetic. Koolabah was started a few years ago by a husband-wife team after they had their first child.. something tells me they must have the coolest dressed kid/kids in town! They make clothes for ages 0-6 and it seems as though they gravitate toward solids or simple prints and use their unique design details to make the statement. So the line’s contemporary and modern, but also super comfortable and versatile. Most importantly, they omitted all of the “decorations” designers have an affinity towards using when making clothes for kids. Smart, very smart!
