Très Adorable! APC Enfant x Little Fashion Gallery Team Up For Children’s Denim Line


Remember Stella McCartney’s children’s clothing line for Gap? All of us pouted because we weren’t a foot shorter and twenty years younger and therefore could not get our hands on those amazing military jackets and tulle skirts? Well, this is another one of those times when you’re going to be jealous of children’s clothing. A.P.C. collaborated with Little Fashion Gallery for an adorably stylish line of kid’s denim, which features faded washes translated into shorts, jeans, and bags that have the same casual nonchalance of the ever-stylish French brand, despite serving a 2 to 12 year age range. Were you this cool as a tot? I don’t think so.

Denim Insider: What’s The Kutie Protocol?


adam-eve-11


Ever since Kutie Protocol glamored us with their trendy kiddie denim parachute pants, we knew we had to talk to the dual behind the Australian fashion label which produces “premium denim wear for children with the latest grown-up trends.”  Just launched in September 2010, Kutie Protocol went the socially-conscious route by sourcing and manufacturing their collections in Medellin, Colombia. “We buy local textiles, recycled materials and we invest in sustainable fabrics. We wash our products in a laundry which have their own private water treatment plant, recycling over 70% of the water and using ‘Tonello’s’ washers which are the top of its class in terms of water and energy efficiencies,” says Co-Founder Ian-Michael Farkas.

Ian-Michael’s wife, Vanessa, is the Creative Director, and has led the design direction for the past year.  She studied and worked in the fashion industry in Milan, Barcelona and Sydney for close to a decade.

What led you to designing denim for kids?
We simply wanted to help children in Colombia; we have a passion for fashion and found the adult market to be saturated.

What was your inspiration behind this current collection?
Iconic couples, real life or made up, you know? Like Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin = acid wash; we wanted to find a source of inspiration as a concept for future collections.  We also take on street fashion and blogs to feed the mood board.
