Buy once and buy well is the philosophy of Huxbaby, Australian designers of monochromatic, minimalist clothes for kids and babies.
With its clean aesthetic and pared back basics, Huxbaby’s customers love grown-up style while they’re at play. Basic doesn’t mean boring though. This season, prints of bear faces, crosses, leopard spots and bunnies decorate the garments, all in a palette of black, white, grey and the occasional shot of washed-out pink.
Huxbaby’s garments have a modern silhouette. Leggings ($42.95) are drop crotch, loose dresses ($49.95) have rounded shirt hems, and tees and sweatshirts ($49.95) are the perfect, laid-back amount of slouchy.
Because of the limited colour palette and unisex styles, there are myriad outfit options, and sisters can raid their brothers’ closets, and vice versa. Sustainability is important to Huxbaby, which means garments are GOTS certified, ethically produced and high quality so hand-me-downs look like they’re fresh off the rack.
Huxbaby is available online, and you can buy current season garments from the website or straight from Instagram. Shipping on orders of over $120 is free.
