thanks lena, johnny and everyone who keeps calm.
i think there's two things in this thread, a tendency to mock each other and then some people who bring in interesting points about what fashion means to them ...

maybe it would indeed be good to start a new thread as lena suggested.
apart from that let's please stay on topic here, thanks

Actually it is very cute, although a bit contrived! I don't think he's going to be able to catch any waves with that board.

I don't know. If my friends were all having children,I don't think I would subject them to simple waffle iron sweaters. I'd put them all in treasured vintage pieces(children's clothes in the past was so much better)....maybe I'll rework them and start my own collection....hehe

There's maybe a gap in the market there Scott. You're right about old kids clothes. I looked cool when I was a toddler. It's been all downhill since then....

^^ ohh I don't know about childrenswear in the past being better I remember a childhood filled with brown cord, dark blue denim, hand-knitted Shetland jumpers, synthetic print t-shirts and polycotton dresses

Not the kind of thing I'd ever buy my own child, but if a friend who liked Marc Jacobs had a baby I would consider buying something as a gift as this is the only time I ever spend a lot of money on such tiny outfits! If parents are dressing themselves in Marc Jacobs, and they have the income, why not buy it for their child too?! There are enough people with throwaway cash to merit lines like these being produced, and I can understand the reasoning behind it. Whenever I see kids clothes I want to design and make them too! Little mini-outfits are too hard to resist!!

If I had a child then I don't think i'd dress him/her in designer clothes, much a si think the one little picture of the marc kiddie is cute, just because they grow out of them so quickly that they are not going to get much wear out of them. Its interesting though... i have noticed that childrens clothes used to be designed for children but nowadays childrens clothes seem mainly to be shrunken adult clothes. I think thats a shame....

I used to love all the liitle jumpsuits and knitted outfits you got for children - and smock dresses for girls with patent shoes and, stilista, I loved the shetland jumpers!!!! You sound like a cool looking little girl! LOL

I mean before that. Victorian-30's and 40's.....that was a lovely period. But I agree it's a niche style but it's certainly another option. I was only joking about re-working them myself....although I do have a friend who's done so and turned out quite beautiful.

Lena,I understand that but if that's the case why would parents buy something like that when they could get the almost exact thing at less expensive shops.

I can probably put my designer clothes (of course, they have to be those don't fit me anymore) into the dryer. Then they will shrink to kid sizes. Wow, think about that, my kids probably can wear Jil Sander!
