Just In: Spring & Summer Munster Kids

just in estella spring summer munster kids clothing

The Spring & Summer Munster Kids collection is here at Estella! Parents of surfer and skater kids (and their wannabes), you should take note of this Australian brand.

Sometimes you’ve gotta let your kids rebel in little ways. Otherwise, they’ll just do it themselves anyway. Let them dye a streak of their hair; it’ll grow out. Munster Kids “gets” rebellion, and makes it harmless and fun.

Taking its cues from art, music, and street culture, the Australian company is known for its fun, funky graphic prints and colors. Inspired by urban legend Mikey Munster, “the devious side of every kid,” as Munster says, Munster Kids combines kid themes with adult styling, leaving you, the parent, just a teensy bit jealous. (Sample line from “The Legend of Mikey Munster:” “They say he gets into the minds of the small / Makes them pick their nose and wipe it on the wall.”)

But it’s not all fun and games: A pioneer of socially conscious commerce, Munster commissions an artist to produce a special T-shirt print every season. For every T-shirt sold, they donate a T-shirt to an orphanage in Cambodia or Vietnam. This Spring and Summer 2011, Munster T-shirts were designed by New York artist Matthew Langille, who has worked with Marc Jacobs, Swatch, and Havaianas.

What clothes and accessories would you pair these Munster pieces with? Be creative!

1. Munster Girls Star Poplin Dress: Can’t you just see the Munster Girls Star Poplin Dress styled with a side ponytail, leggings, and jelly bracelets? Throw in some legwarmers, and you’re good to go. Whether or not you love the 80s trend, it’s here to stay. But no worries, your little girl can wear this dress any way she likes — by itself, with a belt, or maybe with jeans. Made with eco-friendly cotton.

2. Munster Astronaut Shirt: To infinity and beyond! …is where your little boy will want to go in this adventurous astronaut T-shirt. Black with a colorful astronaut themed applique, it’s sure to nurture some interesting career aspirations in your boy (just tell him law school includes space travel, too).

3. Munster Girls Black Rainbow Button Jumper: This black acid-wash-colored girls jumper is all about fun, fun, fun, with its rainbow buttons and playful, sporty shape. Super versatile and comfortable, it’s perfect for class, playing, and everything in between.

Style away!
