Kids are wild things at heart, brimming with spirit and joy. For them, the world is wide and full of possibility, like the possibility that wearing all the stripes in all the colours all at once is a phenomenal idea. And actually, it is a pretty great idea.
Roasted Fox, Australian makers of brilliantly bright and stripy kids’ clothes would agree. Created by a Melbourne mum and dad team, made in Australia, and quality and style tested by their two little ones (the “Exuberant Outdoorsman” and the “Cheeky Princess”) their clothes are made for rolling down grassy hills, romping through forests and building forts.
A lot of kids’ brands are about dressing children like tiny adults, but Roasted Fox knows childhood is short, and it thinks kids should be free to be kids for as long possible.
The collection is mostly unisex, and every single colour of the rainbow gets its opportunity to shine. Roasted Fox has mastered colour-clashing in the striped raglan tops. We love the lolly-inspired names, like the Wizz Fizz and Fantail long sleeved tees ($34.95).
The leggings ($34.95) are especially playful with their contrasting knee patches, striped cuffs, and back pockets with a fox tail peeking out.
Roasted Fox takes the joyfulness of childhood and translates it to clothing. But in having fun, it hasn’t forgotten the practical stuff. All the garments are made from cotton with just a hint of elastine for stretch, which means they’re soft, comfortable and move well. The tops are v-necks so kids can dress themselves easily, and the cute knee and elbow patches make for extra durability where it’s needed most.
Roasted Fox comes in sizes to fit from six months to ten years. It is available from Hugs for Kids.
