7 cool kidswear brands that rocked 2014!

Hey everybody! It is almost Christmas, which means this is going to be my last post this year, cause I'm going on holiday, YAY! December has definitely been a bit of a poor month on the blog I admit, but I have been needing to disconnect a bit, relax that workaholic gene, apart from running the store of course, and to concentrate on my family in my spare time, being more present during these days, spoiling my daughter and digging that true Christmas spirit! Now January means action with a bunch of new and exciting collaborations that I can't wait to tell you all about, but for now it's all just peace and love :)

And so I thought, what better way to end the year than to focus on the brands I have loved the most this year; la créme de la créme of cool and quirky kids fashion, kidswear brands that really have stood out from the crowd and have rocked 2014! Here is my bid (in random order!)


1. Bandit Kids:


Bandit Kids - 7 cool kidswear brands that rocked 2014

Lets start of with the Australian skater/indie/lounge kids clothing brand Bandit Kids. They released their first collection in the early spring, but was already well established in numerous boutiques Down Under with preorders sold out before actually arriving physically. I think I have never seen a new brand move this fast! And they deserved it - super cool street styles, original artwork, high quality clothes, ethical approach = We love you! You can check out my previous posts about them here (There is even an SS15 sneak peek in there ;).


2. Mainio Clothing:

Mainio, oh Mainio! What an absolutely fabulous and even sustainable brand. The Finnish label is also new on the block, having had their grand premiere in the spring of 2014. They wow'ed us all with their astonishing geometric prints, cool monochrome styles, and clean and simple, yet very impressive lines. Can't wait to see what 2015 brings! In the mean time you can see their other collections here.

3. Motoreta:

The Spanish kids fashion brand Motoreta has also been a fresh breath of air with their sophisticated cuts, structure and crispy clean style, bringing an overall coolness to more formal looks. The two architects behind the project, Cristina Lopez-Lago and Maria Llerena, have really created something of a stir, climbing rapidly to the top of the kids fashion ladder.


4. Quinn and Fox:

Quinn & Fox - 7 cool kidswear brands that rocked 2014

Home of the 'Messy hair don't care' kids, the sustainable Californian brand Quinn and Fox took over everybody's heart with their humorous and original artwork, and of course their super funky curly kids. With everything made from scratch in Los Angeles, the creative husband and wife team had their impressive international breakthrough in 2014. Let's see what 2015 has in store for these guys ;) You can check out their previous collections here.

5. Wolf & Rita:

Straight out of Portugal the experienced and very professional tailors behind the young brand Wolf & Rita has launched one amazing collection after the other. 2014 has definitely also been their year with the spicy chilies in the spring and the super cool "Kids have got the blues" collection in the fall - Brilliant!


6. Kindred OAK

Kindred OAK - 7 cool kidswear brands that rocked 2014

Kindred OAK is not at all a commercialized brand, but it has been raving the social media and definitely deserves a spot here for specially their handmade, super cool and unique leggings and pants. I love them and they always seem to surprise. Check out their previous work here.

7. Bobo Choses:

Bobo Choses - 7 cool kidswear brands that rocked 2014

Last but definitely not least, the inevitable Bobo Choses! They always amaze me and is by far one of my favorite kidswear brands around. It was a big surprise for all when they on September 1st 2014 announced that the founder, Laia Aguilar, was leaving the company. I am so curious to see how the brand is going to develop and also very excited to follow Laia in her new projects.

I hope you like my pick, but please do tell if you feel that that a particular brand is missing on the list! I would love to hear your comments :)

And of course, don't forget to join the KID family for more cool kids fashion and style inspiration ;) 

Have a lovely Christmas everybody and a happy new year!!
