I remember watching an episode of Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane where Kimora Lee Leissner (formerly Simmons) asked her daughters to help with designing a collection for Baby Phat. It’s been about 10 years since I saw that though I do recall some drama ensuing because the kids’ visions were definitely different from the usual pieces they put out. But it all worked out in the end.
Fashion lines inspired by celebrity kids, or created in collaboration with them, still exist today. Most of them are catered to the little ones, and sometimes their moms also make sure that grown ladies can wear these pieces as well. If you’re curious to know what they are, here’s a list for you.
The Kramer girls launched Kendra and Scarlett Bows, a hair accessories brand, earlier this year. The brand sells hair bows of different colors, prints, and embellishments. Most of them are big, too, giving you an excuse to make your kids look like Minnie Mouse every time you go out. Available online.
Paolo Valenciano and Sam Godinez’s one-year-old girl already has a collab collection with Fun Nest. This includes fabric crowns in three different prints: tropper dot, silver lining, and strawberry sprinkles. Also, you can get a multi-colored football designed by Sam and the SoliLEIA Peacock Chair that your baby can use as her personal throne. Available starting Sept. 21 to 23 at the Momzilla Fair. Preorder via [email protected].
Last summer, Andi Manzano and baby Olivia launched their collaboration with Coral Swimwear. The mother-and-daughter collection features regular and mini versions of Coral’s swimsuits. If you’re planning a family beach trip and want to coordinate with your little one, you can still grab some pieces. Available online.
Baby Olympia doesn’t have her fashion collection yet, but she might as well have one. Virgil Abloh has been creating mini versions of Serena Williams’ Off-White x Nike tutu dress and “QUEEN” (aptly renamed “OLYMPIA”) sneakers. So if Virgil plans to make a children’s line, he better give Olympia that shoutout.
