Park Slope mom and Oeuf designer Sophie Demenge just launched a children’s knitwear line of your organic-friendly-sustainable-locally sourced dreams: kid clothes inspired by the glistening fruits and veggies of the neighborhood’s ultra cool food co-op. Imagine kids dressed as eggplants and zucchinis and not having to resort to bribes to get them to eat their peas.
The collection, appropriately called Foodilicious, serves up an expensive assortment of items that aren’t just for running around the playground–it’s kid chic at its (least/most?) tastiest, ranging from $70 egg berets to $100 asparagus scarves. Buy until your heart’s content?
Of course, according to The Brooklyn Paper, not all parents are as syked as Demenge. Fellow Park Slope parent Parker Lutz states, “I wouldn’t dress my kids in that. The egg hat is cute— but it’s a little too cute.” Ouch.
I guess you can’t win them all.
