Fashion extremes are all the rage these days, and this July 4th you may want to opt out of those American flag bikini bottoms for a, uh, much younger look. Baby Core, the newest clothing trend to hit the streets, is all about robbing the cradle for inspiration. Yep, all your childhood favorites are back -- in adult size! We're talking footie pajamas, baby tees, corduroy overalls with the impossible snaps, and even infantile accessories like bottles and chromed-out pacifiers. (FLASHBACK!: Remember those brightly colored hard plastic passies popularized in the 90s? All those 12+ year-old girls walking around the mall sucking on over-sized nipple simulators -- it was a pedophiles paradise! Gross.) Anyways, Baby Core has classed it up a bit with a focus on being an adorable giant. Fancy an adult diaper? It's not exactly what you're thinking, especially since major labels like Louis Vuitton and Versace have gotten in on the game. But feel free to shit your pants all the same.
Recently, designer Hood By Air has taken sweet little innocent Baby Core to the child psychologist in a new collection called "Galvenize." It explores infantile clothing through a fetishist eye with interesting silhouettes, their mix-matched body placement, assorted barrettes and bondage-type pacifiers. The closest description is something like Secretary-meets-Miley-meets-Candy Ken-meets- American Horror Story-meets-Skid Row by OshKosh B'gosh.
Who knows what next core will be plumbed, but we kinda hope it involves school photos or wearable fruit.
