PRLog (Press Release) – Jul 27, 2011 – Edgy children’s fashion label Monster Baby is set to release their latest jaw-dropping kids print series, Rockstar Renegades, offering punk rock inspired designs across a range of baby onesies and children’s tshirts. The Rockstar Renegades range will be available instore from August 1, 2011.
“The inspiration was a fictional band of misspent youth playing music in a garage, dreaming about making the big time,” said Monster Baby founder Jo Wilcox of the Rockstar Renegades range. “Our new prints ‘Kick Out The Drums’ and ‘Born This Way’ both look like they could be album covers for 70’s punk rock bands. We also added a bit of a rap style bling factor to the range with our new prints called Golden Wings, a dazzling angel wing print, and Bling, a faux skull necklace print. And our token cheeky design is our take on all those stick family stickers you see plastered on car rear windows. Our version is a family of skeletal rebels, with the mum rocking high top sneakers, hand on hip, the son holding a skateboard and the dad strumming a guitar, making this print take on the elements of a rock band too,” said Wilcox. “Team these designs back with Monster Baby’s flavorsome t-shirt and onesie colours, and your little one will be looking like a rock star in no time.”
The new Rockstar Renegades range joins Monster Baby’s regular stable of baby clothes and kidswear items including tshirts, shorts, onesies, and caps, plus another new addition – long and breezy beach pants.
