Australian T-shirt Tour - Mister. I

DAY 24 – I met Tracey from Mister I. last year, when I promptly fell head over heels for her debut collection of children’s wear. The “Inky Tee” that you see below is from the Mister. I Autumn Winter 2015 collection and features a digitally printed fountain pen and ink blot pattern on white organic cotton. *Swoon*

About Mister. I…

Mister. I is an independent children’s wear label based in Melbourne, Victoria. Designer Tracey explains, “Mister. I was born out of the need to find simple & stylish clothes for my son that were gender neutral. Since 2014 we have creating and sewing in limited runs as we like to keep things fresh!”

The Mister I. A/W15 collection will be based around the simplicity of a monochromatic colour scheme. Tracey says, “We want to make it easier for our customers to mix and match between all the items available. We will also be using some of our own exclusive prints this year”.

Keep your eyes peeled for a very special Mister. I capsule collection entitled ‘Verde’, which will come a little later in the year.

Australian T-shirt Tour - Wilson & Frenchy

DAY 23 – Mr Tiger by Wilson & Frenchy is a little bit kitsch in his chevron shorts, suspenders, and top hat… and his fabulous flute playing and carefree foot fling is all kinds of quirky and sweet. I imagine that his voice sounds somewhat like Snagglepuss… and I’d very much like to make his acquaintance. You’ll find Mr Tiger in sizes to suit newborns through to 12 months.

About Wilson & Frency…

Channelling a refined crafty vibe with a smattering of nature, Melbourne-based label Wilson & Frenchy have managed to roll a whole lot of thoughtfulness into one adorable baby brand.

Sure, your bundle will look amazingly sharp in any one of their items, but the beauty of Wilson & Frenchy is more than one layer deep. Each design is printed on the finest threads of cotton; only in factories that proudly wear the fair trade sticker. What’s more, each design is unique – having been individually illustrated by hands with over a decade’s experience.

Ranging in sizes from just-brought-into-this-world (size 0000) to “hey, I’m getting used to being out here” (size 0), Wilson and Frenchy are proud to share their creations with you.

Australian T-shirt Tour - Little Owl Big Bear

DAY 22 – Ice Creeeeeeeam! This delicious Summer Ice Cream Tee from Little Owl Big Bear reminds me the familiar sound of the ice cream truck at the end of the street, accompanied by kids falling over each other while running barefoot on the hot footpath down the street with a 50c piece in their hot little hand! This tee is available in white, grey, and black cotton for kids aged 0 – 2 years.

About Retrobub…

Retrobub specialises in handmade children’s clothing, made to make you smile, in comfortable, easy to wear styles. Each design features an individually handcrafted applique, created like a collage from patterned fabrics.

This season Retrobub is inspired by animals, re-imagined in Aztec and geometric patterns. Alongside Mr. Fox you’ll find wolves, tigers, lions, metallic gold confetti spots, and geometric prints. The collection caters for sizes 00000 – 5 years, with many gender neutral designs.

Designer Bronwyn Howell started Retrobub in 1996 after previously working in fashion design. Following the birth of her daughter she found a love for children’s wear that has endured. Retrobub is sold through markets and events in Victoria such as The finders Keepers and Red Hill Market, as well as online. Bronwyn says, “By selling directly to customers we get to enjoy our customers and their little ones, and we feel like part of a community. It also helps to keep the prices down which is a challenge with a handmade products”.

Retrobub focuses heavily on high quality fabrics and craftsmanship, aiming to create garments that may be loved, worn over and over, and handed down to the next child to be worn some more.
