Alex and Alexa launch own-brand of kidswear
Everyone's favourite kids' retailer, Alex and Alexa's kidswear collection, Oii, launches with the active, trendy child - and eco-conscious parent - in mind
When shopping for the kids, many parents have embraced the "buy less, buy better" mentality, investing in designer wares from favourite e-tailers like Alex and Alexa, which stocks everything from Stella McCartney to Burberry to Mini Rodini.
And, as of February 20th, 2020, its own line, too - a Scandi-cool, sustainable brand designed in Gothenburg, called Oii. A second collection which includes swimwear will drop April 20th.
Oii by Alex and Alexa
The new collection combines practical pieces with quirky prints and patterns - inspired by the playfulness of the sea - by Swedish illustrator Beata Boucht, in a wearable palette of pastels and earthy tones and easy-wear pieces like printed joggers, hoodies, casual tees and denim, designed for a child to look good - and move freely.
There's also timeless denim styles, ribbed knits and ruffle and frill detailing on jumpers and skirts.
The clothes are designed for kids aged 2-12, with a focus on sustainability: many of the pieces are made from recycled polyester (there's a fab rucksack made from recycled plastic, using four 500ml bottles) and GOTS-certified organic cotton (all garments are also certified Zero Mission). The silhouettes are designed to last kids well beyond one season.
