Baby Clothes: Babies In Black – Cool or Cruel?

January 31, 2011

Here at Estella, we’ve always put babies in black clothes, whether they’re our own baby or we’re creating styles for the store.

And looking at this picture, how could we not? One could say he’s urban chic, sophisticated, handsome, elegant, and cool. But we just think he looks beautiful.

That said, we know babies in black clothes can stir up a lot of emotions. Too dark and morbid? Too Addams Family like? You don’t want your kids going Goth before they’re 12.

In the end, we feel like putting black on infants and babies alone is not going to make them the next Marilyn Manson. For now, they just look stylish, and that’s good enough for us.

What do you think? Is this kid ready for his Soho gallery job? Is he urban chic and sophisticated in his black romper and with a his hand-knit taxi cab rattle toy?
