Naked & Famous Skinny Boy “Glow in the Dark” Denim - Since their inception in 2008, the good men over at Naked & Famous Denim have been pushing the boundaries in the world of pants. Not only do these guys create well-fitting, quality garments but they also only use the most unique and rare denim fabrics from Japan.
In the last couple years, we have seen everything from the heaviest jeans ever created, the 32oz selvedge denim jeans (which you might have seen standing up on it’s own at the Capsule last summer), to the delicious Scratch-n-Sniff raspberry scented raw selvedge denim pant. However, their is one style that really made an impression on us and had us all in awe at parties or “inna da clubs”, our favourite, The Glow-in-the-Dark denim pants.
Now, Naked and Famous has decided to step up their game in the world of “teeny-tiny” and offer up their Glow-in-the-Dark denim pants to our youth.
Made from phosphorescent coated 9 oz. (98% cotton, 2% elastane) denim, the Skinny Boy literately absorbs light, and slowly releases it in the dark. Each pair will include a mini blacklight flashlight which activates instantly the coating and allows the wearer to actually draw vanishing images on his or her pants. How exciting for any kid!
The Naked & Famous Skinny Boy “Glow in the Dark” Denim pants will be available exclusively at Blue & Cream in sizes 2 – 12. Get ‘em now!
Stance FW13 Kids Socks - If you’re looking to step up your kids’ sock game, check out the latest collection of quality garments at Stance socks.

Nike SB Janoski for Toddlers - Having been quite popular with both adults and kids, it was only a matter of time before Nike would introduce the favorite SB Janoskis in itty bitty baby sizes. Slated for spring 2014, the Baby Janos will feature all the SB support as well as the timeless boat shoe aesthetic minus the round or leather laces commonly seen in the adult sized model of this shoe.
As the younger generation of skate kids appear to be introduced to the sport at younger and younger ages, we think that Nike is really moving in the right direction with this release. Good moves.
LITTLE ELEVENPARIS x Muppets for FW13 - Paris based brand LITTLE ELEVENPARIS has collaborated with Disney and the Muppets in order to feature Kermit The Frog and his crazy friend Animal on a couple of Fall/Winter 2013 tees.
As we are accustomed to from the brand, both these Muppets are rocking small drawn-on mustaches on their respective white or ash tees. Each shirt also includes LITTLE ELEVENPARIS’ slogan “Life if a Joke” below the framed image.
To celebrate the capsule collection, LITTLE ELEVENPARIS and Walt Disney Company France, in partnership with Doolittle, will be hosting an event this Saturday, September 21st, between 3pm and 7pm at the LITTLE ELEVENPARIS shop in Paris. There will be all sorts of treats, music, DIY workshops and tons of other great surprises for you and your kids.
To further celebrate, we are giving away two Muppets x LITTLE ELEVENPARIS packages via our Facebook page.
Port LBC Kids Tee - The Long Beach CA based boutique store, Port, has begun offering their black and white “Port” logo tee in pint sizes. Usually we wouldn’t be posting about one basic tee, but we happen to think this shop is pretty dope and is really moving in the right direction. Represent!
The 50/50 poly-cotton blend tee is available in 3 small sizes at portlbc.com and in-store for 15 bucks. Get it!
Following a central theme based around music and guitar lullabies, Bobo Choses has produced lots of comfy-cozy, “oversized”, fall coloured pieces with whimsical prints of trees, instruments, rain drops, etc.
Our favourite new addition to Bobo Choses’ collections, the Thick Twill School Bag, is great for young kids attending school for the first time in fall. It’s small but sturdy and prefect for small books, pencil crayons and lil treasures.
Air Jordan 5 GS in Cement Grey and Raspberry - A new pair of girls GS Jordan 5’s have become available this week and these babies are bringing all the boys to they yard. Their cement grey upper is sleek and clean and is well accentuated by a pretty raspberry mid-sole, a purple liner and those icy blue soles.
Victor Cruz for Foot Locker Kids - In this new Foot Locker Kids commercial, Victor Cruz, a New York Giants wide receiver, befriends Scott, a cool kid that is sad that after their 30 seconds of commercial time together they will no longer be friends. Cruz decides the best thing to do is “Make it Count” and so the two go on several quick adventures before Scott gets the boot. Funny, witty and well done; this is great advertisement.
adidas Kids Springblade - If your kids are looking for an explosive reaction on any surface, the new Springblade introduced in-stores today by adidas might be the running shoes they need.
The adidas Spingblade’s newly engineered outsole features 16 forward angled blades made of a high-tech polymer. These blades absorb energy when loaded and unleash it on the launch.The highly elastic like blades react quickly and efficiently to every movement without disrupting the runners regular flow.
The Techfit construction on the upper part of the shoe was engineered for a natural, yet flexible support system while still locking the foot and helping in delivering the energy returned from the springy outsole.
All in all the new Springblade, available in Black and Red for kids, is a really neat new take on performance running shoes. Pretty impressive if I do say.
Ruff & Huddle AW13 Collection - New UK kidswear brand, Ruff & Huddle, has created a wonderful new collection of streetwear inspired goods that encapsulates that fearless yet sweet lil rebel in every kid.
As much as we like Ruff & Huddle’s AW13 collection of well designed sweats and graphic tees, the young brand’s killer jackets are what really caught our eye.
We love R&H’s classic college Varsity jacket with its epic stitched lion motif and the ‘ROAR’ applique on the front. Their M1 bomber jacket is also pretty impressive. The tattoo like patches really give it an edge that your boys will totally love.
Nike Free 5.0 GS “Camo” - In keeping with the on-going camouflage trend, Nike released a great new colorway on their Free 5.0 for your grade school kids. Mixing black, silver, light grey and just a lil bit of subtle red, this light sneaker not only looks amazing but feels great when out to play. Sorta wished they were in my size.
Check them out at Titolo.ch or at your local Nike retailer.
HUF Plantlife “Baby Seeds” Socks - HUF has added baby sized socks to their ever popular Plantlife collection for Fall 2013. Available in white, pink, blue and green, and packaged in a HUF dime bag, these lil socks are the perfect tongue-in-cheek gift for any new parents.
New Balance Kids 574 in Brown and Green - Slip those tiny feet into a pair of kid-friendly retro New Balance runners. The very popular 574 lifestyle sneaker has been adapted for easy on-and-off access and features a dark brown suede colorway highlighted with bright green branding, midsole and heel tab.
Great for kicking around this summer or for the dreaded “back-to-school” season.
Nike Air Max 1 GS - Blue & Volt - Resting upon Air Max’s groundbreaking visible Air sole unit, this AM1’s blend of bright blue hues, Volt yellow accents and textures on the mudguard and Nike Swoosh, make it a perfect addition to any young enthusiast’s growing sneaker collection.
This iconic runner has been ever present for a number of seasons and we are so glad to see that Nike has been shrinking it to youth sizes.
