Sustainability, creativity and practicality with new kidswear brand VANDALKIDS
VANDALKIDS is a new brand of kidswear offering high quality practical and comfortable gear for children aged three to 10 without compromising on style.
Created by ex-brand director and mother Kat Vandal, the collection has been designed to encourage kids’ creativity and self-expression whilst incorporating parent-friendly features to help the clothes last and reduce their impact on the planet.
Kat has thought about the daily grind of washing and caring for clothes that can easily be trashed by our little darlings, as well as offering protection from the elements. Tracksuits include innovative features, such as a water-repellent and abrasion-resistant shell on the hoods, chest, knees and back of the legs.
This means they offer resistance to carpet or grass friction, protecting the cotton fibres and helping them to last longer.
Short-sleeved hoodies can be layered over long-sleeve tops, meaning they last longer and can be worn across the seasons.
Pieces are loose fit, have an adjustable waist and ultrasoft stretchy cotton linings making them comfortable.
Because the shell is water-repellent and abrasion-resistants, clothing is wipeable and can be washed less often, saving the washing pile and increasing the longevity of the clothes.
The prints are plant-based on 100% Oeko-tex certified cotton, so they’re safe for both the garment makers’ and children’s skin.
VANDALKIDS founder Kat Vandal: “From a practical point of view, I was tired of constantly washing and throwing away his worn-out tracksuits, while having too many clothes dedicated to various activities (for art, for outdoor play, for big occasions). It wasn’t good for me and it’s definitely not good for the environment. I realised there had to be another way. I made it my mission to create a range of kids’ clothes that could be worn every day, that would withstand the mess and the play and that would last. But that would also be stylish and fun to wear. VANDALKIDS clothes offer no compromise.”
The first VANDALKIDS collection is inspired by 80s street art with two gender neutral prints, Street Maze and Cheeky Graffiti loved by parents as much as by their kids.
