Winter sales are over, which means two things: spring/summer collections are here, and good luck finding a warm jumper for the last cold month of the season. We’ve been excitedly waiting to see what designers have cooked up for hot weather, and the folks at Munster Kids have totally lived up to expectations.
If you’re not familiar with the brand, you’ve been missing out on one of the hippest Aussie kids labels out there. Munster Kids has a collection for all munchkins big and small: Missie and Lil Missie for girls, and Munster and Mini Munster for boys.
The latest Children of the Sea collections have mixed old with new, revisiting some prints from the previous autumn/winter, and also giving us something completely different. In anticipation of long weekends spent at beach shacks and school holiday afternoons chasing down the Mr Whippy truck, the fabrics are soft, lightweight jersey in fresh, bright colours like rockmelon, turquoise, splatter painted black and every shade of blue in the ocean.
Kids can get away with wearing almost anything, and we love the way Munster Kids plays with shape, proportion and bold prints. Pants for girls and boys are roomy, harem style, perfect for pulling over swimmers after a day at the beach.
For girls, there are dropped-waist, drawstring overalls, and adorable rompers layered over leggings. Hoodies for boys have shark teeth that show when unzipped, proving that even though our little boys are growing up too fast, they still like to have fun.
Munster Kids shows off its pattern clashing skills with their Mini Munster and Lil Missie collections for babies and toddlers. Boys’ skateboard print Decks Pants are paired with Breton stripe tees, and little aqua harem pants printed with whales of every description go perfectly with the black and white spatter spotted tee-shirt.
Children of the Sea collections are available online and at your local kids’ boutique.
