What the Children Wore // House of Kid

We first collaborated with Cleo back in 2015 when H-Bear was a newborn, and Busby was the same age H-Bear is now! Fast forward two and a half years, and Cleo Cobb has had a rebrand with a new name – House of Kid – and we’re super chuffed to be featuring her gorgeous clothes once again.

Cleo believes that all kidswear should be awesome, rad and unisex, and she certainly achieves that in her collection. House of Kid’s clothes are bright, bold and wonderfully designed, using gorgeous statement fabrics that celebrate pattern, culture and adventure. 

The children were both sent a t-shirt and a sweater from House of Kid’s current collection. So, on Sunday, we all made our way up a frosty hill near my in-laws, to run around, find huge sticks and shoot these gorgeous clothes.

For Busby, I chose the stunning Children’s Moon Sweatshirt in the monochrome doodle print (£35), and the Children’s Cloud T-shirt in the simply amazing Pink and Blue African Wax Print (£23.50).

Both items are designed and hand-appliquéd by Cleo.

The base garments for Cleo’s gorgeous designs (the t-shirts and sweaters) are ethically made, regarding their environmental impact. They are also fair trade, with a promise of no child labour.

I love how versatile the garments are. They look fab with a pair of leggings (as pictured), but would look equally fantastic with a skirt, or even a tutu! The tees also look great layered with a simple long-sleeved t-shirt.

Aren’t they wonderful?

Busby wears age 5-6 years in the sweater and age 4-5 years in the t-shirt. Both fit wonderfully.

For H-Bear, I chose the Children’s Cloud Sweater in the monochrome dash print (£35), and the amazing Robot tee (£20), which has been a huge hit with our youngest!

Just a quick note to say that H-Bear’s little wet patch on his cloud sweater is dribble and nothing to do with the jumper’s design! We tried to dry it out whilst walking up the hill, but it was far too cold…!

Once again, both items are designed by Cleo – although the robot is printed, not appliquéd.

H-Bear wears age 2-3 years in both garments, which fit wonderfully with room to grow.

I have been so impressed with the quality, washability and durability of all of the clothes featured in this post; I honestly can’t recommend House of Kid enough.
