The Littlest Runway Models

By Glinda

Yohji Yamamoto (Y-3) for Adidas brought out the young ones to their runway show this week in New York.

It’s probably just me, but I find their round, innocent little faces an odd juxtaposition with some of the “tough” streetwear. And truly, any one of those outfits definitely costs more than most of mine! The shoes alone will run you around $160.00.





It seems that black is the new black.

I like black, but on kids I tend to go for more vibrant colors. I mean, if all they wear is black in their pre-teen years, where is the opportunity for rebellion?

    I like the clothes (except for the satin bloomers!) but surely when they go into stores they’ll have more colour? I can see buying these in a nice navy blue or burgundy, but all black? Is it only available in Manhattan or something?

    I like black on kids, especially on brunettes and dark-haired kids. (I think it overwhelms the fair-haired). They can always rebel with pastels and brights when they are teenagers.

    Ha. Don’t you just know the kids of the tattooed and pierced will rebel by getting crewcuts (boys) and wearing pink twinsets (girls) and listening to country music? The parents will be all “This isn’t how we raised you! How can you shame us this way?”

    My mom always said no black for kids, too. I think it’s ok as long as it’s in moderation- I would never put anyone under 13 in all black. But like a black velvet jumper with a crisp white shirt and tights, or a black jacket for a boy looks so “special occasion” to me. And black pants with bright shirts or vice versa for casual is fine.

    But reallly, how often in your life can you really get away with wearing nothing but bright colors on your whole body- bold pink striped turtleneck, purple pants, rainbow shoes, colorful scrunchies- only when you’re small (and maybe the over-70 set too, now that I think about it). But as an adult it’s all “one color, the rest neutral”… why not take advantage while you can?

    lol @ class factotum

    It’s true. I have an uncle who says the next big trend in rebellion is going to be powdered wigs ­čÖé
