Where to go shopping for gender neutral kids’ clothes in Singapore

Gender-neutral-clothes-Le-Petit-Society-HoneyKids-Asia
If you prefer to ditch the gender stereotypes for your kids, here's where you can find clothes to suit.

Gender neutral kids’ clothing is hitting the mainstream, and we like it. You may have heard the recent news that John Lewis department store in the UK will no longer categorise children’s clothes by gender – instead, they’ll be labeled for ‘Girls & Boys’ or ‘Boys & Girls’. In Australia, the Victorian state government is set to allow girls to wear shorts and trousers to school in a move to break down gender stereotypes that we think is well overdue. Surely, if girls these days are learning to code, they can also wear pants?

So, in celebration of these much-awaited forward steps for equality and in anticipation of many more, we thought we’d spread the word on kids’ clothing stores and brands in Singapore (or online stores with Singapore delivery – and while we’re at it, here are a few online stores for you) that make it easier to dress your kids gender neutrally. To be clear, these brands don’t necessarily shout about gender neutrality – we just feel they do a good job of letting girls and boys wear whatever they fancy. And that’s what it’s all about, right?

Le Petit Society
Confetti, lions, rainbows, giraffes, paint splatters and cool geometric patterns are the order of the day at Le Petit Society, and lordy, have we placed a lot of orders! We are shameless in our adoration for this brand, which is the savvy creative vision of local couple Robyn Liang and Dylan Ong. They recently opened a store at Downtown Gallery, they sell online and they’re stocked in a few retailers around town. They also stock other brands they (and we) love, such as Pretty Brave, Rockin’ Baby, and Hubble & Duke.

This Singapore business is probably the most passionate about breaking norms in the kids’ fashion stakes, particularly focusing on letting boys have more fun with their clothes than the traditional brands tend to let them. We love the Swagasaurus range, and the onesies are pretty darn adorable no matter who wears them.

Cotton On Kids
Sure, there’s a plentiful supply of pink bows and sparkly skirts here, but you can also pick up spots, stripes, and fun patterns in almost every colour and size imaginable. Clothes here are affordable, fun, and widely available across the island. And you’ll always walk out with a drink bottle or hair brush from the front counter because they’re just too cute to ignore.
