OK, so maybe you can't get your kids to eat all their healthy organic veggies, but could they possibly be enticed to wear some? Brooklyn-based kids' clothing and homewares company Oeuf have just released their lookbook for fall, featuring their new Foodilicious range of veggie-themed knits. The handknits are made from super soft, hypoallergenic, alpaca wool and will be available on the Oeuf online store and at selected retailers in August. Read on for a sneak preview and some very cute pics!
Oeuf say that the Foodilicious range is inspired by the Park Slope Co-Op in Brooklyn. The quirky food-themed clothing and accessories for boys, girls and babies include egg, carrot, eggplant and radish details, and there are whimsical scarves fashioned after asparagus and leeks. There are also plenty of basics in the range, such as simple leggings, tie scarfs and cardigans in veggie-bright shades of apple red, pickle green and mustard yellow, and there are several very cute animal-themed pieces.
Also for fall, the new colors in Oeuf’s layette range give babies’ wear a fresh spin with a retro feel. The bold indigos, charcoals and yellows contrast with soft greys and pinks, with all items made from GOTS-certified 100% organic pima cotton. In keeping with the company’s strong environmental and fair trade ethics, the alpaca wool knits are also handcrafted by a women’s collective in Bolivia.
