Childish Baby Clothing
f you’ve never heard of the brand known as Childish, you’re missing out on one of the hippest trends in infant wear today. The brand, which began hitting the market in spring of 2004, is known for its combination of high fashion, comfort, and rock 'n’ roll sensibility. The clothing line offers everything from preppy to punk, so it can fit your baby’s every mood.
Born from Rock ’n’ Roll
creators, Skye Hoppus, a mother and former MTV executive, and Suzanne
Mitchell, a mother and co-founder of Baby Mabel’s boutiques, believe their
brand is the ultimate in baby cool. Childish was born out of Skye’s frustration
with maternity clothing choices. She wanted something hip enough to wear
with her husband’s band while they were out on tour. Skye and Suzanne
then teamed up to create not only maternity wear, but clothing for infants
and toddlers as well.
Another popular spring number for baby girls is a dress called the "Piper." This A-line sleeveless style consists of a fitted top with a flared bottom. The dress comes in a pastel camouflage print with a heart insignia-entirely appropriate, since you might find when you look at the dress it’s love at first sight. Childish states that this dress offers a premiere combination of sugar and spice.
Interestingly enough, Childish also offers styles for boys inspired by some famous sons. For instance, a pair of pants known as the "Rocco" is named for the singer Madonna’s boy. The Rocco consists of a wide-legged cargo pant with a custom drawstring waistband and zippers. The pants come in a variety of colors, including brown, orange, and camouflage.
Childish also offers a variety of boys’ t-shirts. These contain slogans such as "Dads rule" (written in camouflage), "100% Punk" (inspired by the son of Green Day front man Billie Joe Armstrong), "Play that funky music" (in honor of musician Chris Robinson’s son Ryder) and "Good boy" (complete with a picture of a dog). The t-shirts come in colors such as light blue, navy, orange, and brown.
You should be aware of the fact that Childish creations are considered to be high-end baby fashions and, exceptionally hip baby clothes. As a result, baby girl dresses can run as much as $44, while baby boy t-shirts can be $34. Therefore, you’ll have to decide how much high-fashion means to you before investing in a Childish wardrobe for your little one. However, it’s apparent that many mothers think style is worth the price-some of Childish’s baby clothes have actually sold out.
