Just like grown-ups, kids come in different shapes and sizes. There are roly-poly kids with dimpled fingers and chubby feet. There are lean kids whose preferred mode of transport is running. It’s tough to find a brand with something for every body type, so when we find designers like Oishi-m, we’re fiercely loyal.
Oishi-m’s Winter Injection 2015 collection is full of masterful pattern clashing and bright colours like shocking pink, eggplant, and fire engine red tempered by cosy charcoal grey marle and dark denim.
The designers have used soft fleece in the pants and hoodies to ward off chilly weather while kids are romping around outside. Snug, soft waistbands and cuffs keep pants in place and make sure no delicate skin is exposed to the elements, but the roomy design means kids can climb and tumble, and get so much exercise that maybe you’ll experience that unicorn: the hours-long afternoon nap.
Packed with adorable details, from the curved closure and signature buttons, to the contrasting cuffs and colourful trim, the raglan sleeve hoodies ($69.95) are not your average hoodie.
Who said dresses and skirts have to be demure? Oishi-m has cleverly built knickers into its Rosa Oceans Skirt ($59.95) so that little girls can roll and tumble as girls are wont to do.
It’s no secret that we adore Oishi-m. We’ve been championing this fine Aussie designer for years. They move to the beat of their own drum, releasing limited edition collections as they find fabrics that inspire them, instead of having two collections a year. That means you’ll never get bored, and also that you won’t see eight other kids at the park wearing the same pants as your daughter.
Oishi-m clothing comes in sizes to fit from three months up to six years. Express shipping is free, Australia-wide.
