We love it for its Zoo collection animal-shaped lunch bags and backpacks that are ubiquitous in playgrounds and daycares around the country, and now Skip Hop has released new a collection of modern baby basics.
With the Star Struck collection, Skip Hop has taken a different tack from its usually bright and colourful bags. This collection is all modern monochromatic prints with sparks of metallic silvers and golds. In anticipation of wintry weather coming, bodysuits, rompers and footie sets are printed with clouds and lightning bolts, as well as stars and stripes.
Clashing patterns of floating grey clouds and black and white horizontal stripes are grounded by the monochromatic theme. We love the cute details like footed suits ($43) with lightning patterns and a flash of stripe on the bottom of the feet, or the cloud onesies with attached striped skirts ($29).
Skip Hop has given special attention to not only the look, but the feel of the garments. Buttons are placed on the sides and fronts so they don’t poke into babies’ backs, and all the labels are scratch free.
Skip Hop’s Star Struck collection is available online at Gear 4 Baby.
