As most of us wave goodbye to summer holidays, South Africa’s youngest can continue celebrating the fun and frivolity of summer as they trapeze straight out of Christmas and into an exciting, new circus-inspired season at Cotton On KIDS.
The new collection, which hits stores from early January, is inspired by the current global trend of spots and stripes and the excitement of sitting front row at a classic circus with an array of vibrant colours, textures and prints, incorporated in a range of fresh summer styles.
Young ladies will be dazzled by spotted leggings, sparkly high top sneakers, and starry playsuits, while the boys are sure to make the crowd roar with drop-crotch shorts, printed tees and denim kicks.
Tween girls will be equally impressed with Free by Cotton On’s 9-14 year old collection, which boasts denim wash skirts, bright patterned jumpsuits and embellished t-shirts, and for the boys, it’s all about running amuck in denim cutoffs, striped tees and neutral hoodies.
Items in the circus-inspired collection have all been designed to be mixed-and-matched, allowing youngsters and tweens to explore their individual style and wear it their own way.
Cotton On KIDS Trend & Forecast Director, Meaghan Kendall, said the range offers customers an exciting new experience with bold, modern prints while still maintaining the fun, quirky, easy-to-wear styles that Cotton On KIDS is famous for.
“While there are some eclectic fashion moments within the range, the focus is on great back to kinder and school outfits. We have also updated our famous essentials range with a fantastic selection of footwear and back packs.”
To celebrate the new collection, select Cotton On KIDS stores around the globe will come alive on January 17 with magicians, jugglers, face painting, balloon twisting and other circus-inspired activities, which are sure to get the kids excited.
