Let's Wear | Ígló & Indí
This weekend the kids had a chance to try out the Icelandic label Ígló & Indí. I have written about this exciting kids label before here, but it is always great to feel the garments and let the kids have a run in them to see for yourself how they feel, and measure up on two active kids, to give it a proper review.
First thing we noticed was how all the garments had a nice stretch in them, especially the tops, which are made from 95% cotton and 5% spandex. The mix gives the tops that good fit but also allows the kids to feel free when they play. D who is 4 and a half is wearing a size 104/110 and M who is 7 wears 128/134. The clothes run true to size and sat perfect on.
I let the kids choose their own outfit which came out really well with M going for the cute Katrin Fox longsleeve and matching it with the cool Bella Leopard Pants. D picked the Jacob One eye Top (who can resist a pirate animal!?) and to that the Robert Carrot Pants.
M who are not normally a big fan of pants loved the Bella Leopard Pants. They have a great loose fit on top but cut so the legs narrow off and gives it a nice mix between a harem pant and leggings. She was also fond of the generous side pockets with the decorative frill. Both pants comes from the AW13 collection and has a nice thick quality to them. The Robert Carrot pants has a great look with some raw drawstrings on the front and a nice cut over all. They are also have a longer crotch and give them that nice relaxed feel.
Personally I can see how the kids love these clothes. I love the illustrations that tell tales of adventures and characters that the kids can relate to. I also like that there has been put a lot of thought into what provides maximum comfort without compromising on creativity. Four thumbs up from the two testers that certainly took the clothes through a rough day of playing in the forest, cliffs and beach.
