Mums of little boys rejoice – we’re about to show you some of the funkiest threads around for young men!
I stumbled upon Duke of London completely by accident, and what a happy accident it was. With two little boys, there’s precious little that can be done to jazz up traditional young male outfits. Unless you find a like-minded mum who creates her own label to fill that niche.
Duke of London creator and mum of two, Kiri, has a passion for dressing her boys as dapper as possible. The Duke of London label is all about cool and unique clothing that can stand the test of time. In particular I love the huge array of pants available for boys. I get very fed up with rack after rack of jeans or camo pants. But Duke of London has broken the mould, introducing tights and comfy crotch drop pants.
Produced entirely in Australia, Duke of London has just launched its latest collection – autumn/winter 2013 – and the inspiration is Sake, the little Cherokee Indian. The collection once again reflects a relaxed style, with a huge injection of unique.
The new collection includes some great accessories (which are very much unisex) including Handsout – fingerless gloves with a thumb hole. They come in sizes to suit children from six months to six years old and cost $29.95.
One of my little boys has wild, curly hair, which I have actually resorted to pinning at times (I’m loathe to cut his beautiful locks!), so the Wooly Band ($29.95) is right up my alley.
Duke of London has literally thought of everything – these Wooly Snood ($54) infinity scarves are the bomb.
The tights for boys craze has never looked more fashionable thanks to Duke of London. The slims are just divine – warm and hard wearing, with a kick of street-cred, they cost $46 a pair.
I adore these Leather Dens – drop crotch pants made from soft, chambray denim with faux suede pockets. They come in sizes to suit babies, up to size 6, for $61.95.
You can shop the new collection at Duke of London, which ships worldwide.
