Last season I fell in love with a few of the little goodies on offer from Australian indie kids label Monstar Kids so I’ve been keeping my eye out for the new summer collection. Here it is folks, a colourful and cheery range of dresses, tops, skirts and cutie shorts for the girls, and the Aussie summer staple of tees and shorts for the boys.
The Monstar Kids collection is designed by Fiona Roy and is 100% Australian made. Most of the fabrics used are also designed by Fiona and printed locally in Melbourne. I love how the white patterns on the red and yellow swing dresses above really make the colour pop!
I just can’t get enough of the detailing that Fiona uses in her designs, such as the cup shaped pockets and strategically placed ric rac and buttons. Fiona is also a master of pleats, placing them daintily around hemlines to give the perfect modern and girly shape to skirts and pants.
