History and fashion are cyclical, and the days of twinning outfits are back. Getting matchy-matchy with your mini-me is not only picture-worthy, but can also be a spot of high-spirited fun. Take it from someone who knows what she’s talking about—as a mother of twins and a regular mummy-and-me dresser, here is my go-to list of brands that offer charming coordinated clothes for you and your youngsters if you’re looking to don twinning outfits in Singapore.
Esse and for Pēpi
Minimalist mums can turn to Singaporean brand Esse The Label and its newly launched for Pēpi kidswear range for clothes that will have your kids matching your own pared-back aesthetic. Fuss-free whilst also reducing one’s carbon footprint, this is a responsible choice for your tribe. Made from organic, natural materials that are soft on young skin, the label’s gender-neutral tones and agender pieces make for seamless hand-me-downs. Sustainable for the planet and sustainable for siblings? Consider us sold.
Dior and Baby Dior
To achieve a sense of quiet sophistication with your twinning outfits, check out Dior’s latest addition: Baby Dior. While the new line offers garments furnished with Dior’s Toile de Jouy and Cannage motifs, The ‘B27’ sneaker by Kim Jones—reimagined by Baby Dior artistic director Cordelia Castellane—will round off your look from top to toe.
Dolce&Gabbana and Dolce&Gabbana Junior
Donna and bambino will be living la dolce vita with Dolce&Gabbana’s latest Carretto theme. Think: Balmy summer nights, lemon trees, gelato, roses, baroque prints and beautiful Sicilian Carretto Pupi. From informal to occasion-worthy options, expect your family to be decked to the nines with a selection of poplin dresses, co-ords and mini-bags. Top that off with the DG Toys and DG dolls line for a little extra embellishment, and you’re ready for a Sicilian-style entrance.
Founded in 2015 in Singapore, childrenswear label Maison Q has rooted its ethos in utility. It has also conceptualised products designed with reversibility in mind to allow for more options and mileage. Artisans craft the pieces at a family-owned workshop, sewing love and care into each vibrant item. Maison Q’s options also include cheongsams and Hari Raya-appropriate pieces for festive occasions. You can further complete your look with a mask from the brand’s Masks for Good initiative, which serves a good cause by providing work for the label’s Indonesian craftsmen.
Kenzo and Kenzo Kids
“I wish that I could be like the cool kids” comes to mind when you think of Kenzo Kids. For you multigenerational street-style lovers, the Parisian label founded by the late Japanese designer Kenzō Takada offers a plethora of jersey fabrics, print tees, hooded logo tops and versatile garments imbued with codes of attitude and spunk. Exuberant pops of colour offer cosy, cool and contemporary looks for all members of the clan.
Our Second Nature and Our Mini Nature
This Singaporean label offers wearable options suited for everyday life. With pieces that feature bold prints, abstract designs and muted block colours, in fabrics such as cotton and jersey, you and your little ones will be comfortable and fashionable, no matter the location.
Fendi and Fendi Kids
Fendi is not averse to miniature versions of signature pieces loved by its adult devotees. Case in point: its recent kids’ edit included the Fendi Pack theme, which pays tribute to the maison’s hallmark yellow packaging. Throw in some Fendi Roma labels and monogram prints, and you have yourself a playful Fendi family. Furry friends need not miss out—the exclusive pet collection will have your pooch portrait ready in no time.
Based in Singapore, Elizabeth Little brings us a little piece of nostalgia with paisley prints, smock dresses, classic Peter Pan collars, voile, pops of colour and hand embroidery. Each piece is also created with sustainability and slow fashion in mind. Utilising materials such as organic cotton and Japanese linen alongside heritage liberty designs, each piece from the label makes for celebratory clothing that are also well-placed to become heirlooms.
