Tap #minime into your Instagram search bar and you’ll find over five million posts, a large proportion of which feature mums (and dads) and their little ones rocking matching outfits. Clearly, the twinning trend is still going strong, and with Mother’s Day right around the corner, what better time to work the matchy-matchy look? This season is all about the fashion trainer, and we’ve created some of our best-selling styles in junior sizes, so you and your mini-me can both get your sneaker fix – the perfect finishing touch to your Mother’s Day outfits.
Carvela Lamar & Mini Lamar
An instant best-seller - actress Rosamund Pike loves hers - we knew we had to create a miniature version of the cult Carvela 'Lamar' kicks. For the school run or Sunday lunches, the mix of sports luxe styling and flexible neoprene make them as functional as they are fashionable. In black – a no-brainer if they’re not averse to getting a little bit muddy during playtime, 'Mini Lamar' looks great on boys and girls alike. For mum, there’s black, khaki, red, beige or blue, with more colours coming soon. The sleek design means you can wear them with smart trousers and skirts as well as your downtime denim and sweats.
Kurt Geiger Lippy & Mini Miss KG Loveheart
Decorated with embroidered stars, lips, studs and pearls, Kurt Geiger 'Lippy' take the classic lace-up trainer to seriously covetable new levels. Feeding our obsession with all things embroidered, embellished and generally a little bit ‘extra’ this season, Lippy – and its Mini Miss KG twin Kurt Geiger 'Loveheart' - will amp up even the most basic outfits. Blogger Sandra Bendre styles hers with black boyfriend jeans and a blazer, the laces quirkily tied around her ankles, but the opulent details mean they can hold their own with dressier looks too. Go (slightly more) minimal in white or extra stand-out in glossy gold.
Miss KG Lyla Bow & Mini Miss KG Mini Lyla
For trainers you (and they) can wear on weekends and for special occasions, look no further than the luxe Miss KG 'Lyla Bow' and matching Mini Miss KG 'Mini Lyla'. A plush satin finish and oversized bow give the sporty runner style an image overhaul that fuses prettiness and practicality. Those completely committed to the matchy-matchy vibe will be all about the navy and black version, or there’s an adult grey and kids pink for a slightly less co-ordinated look. Perfect with party dresses or jeans and jumpers, whether it’s mum or daughter wearing them!
Don’t forget to check out our super-cool Mini Miss KG pop-up at Harrods and shop your favourite styles. Open from now until April, little ones will love it! Still on the hunt for the perfect Mother’s Day gift (or treat to yourself)? We will be offering complimentary monogramming on handbags and small leather goods at Selfridges London from 8th-10th March.
