Designer Robert Childs launches namesake menswear label

Jul 29, 2016

Childs, the new menswear brand from designer Robert Childs, is set to hit stores this coming fall season. Robert, a 30-year-old designer that worked with Thom Browne and Opening Ceremony, debuted his first collection earlier this year in February and recently showed his Spring 2017 collection.

Childs Fall 2016, which will be available at Totokaelo, Neighbour and Contraband among other boutiques and retailers.

For his latest offering that debuted in July, Childs drew inspiration from Key West, Florida, where he was born and raised, specifically sailing, sailors uniforms and the construction of sails. The standout pieces from the collection include white overalls, a translucent rain jacket and floral shirts inspired by Hawaiian shirt prints.
Spring 2017 won’t hit stores until January, but the FIT graduate’s debut collection will be available at Totokaelo in the US, as well as Neighbour and Contraband in Canada. Of course, what will hit stores will be Childs’ Fall 2016 collection, which is inspired by the spy thriller Three Days of the Condor starring Robert Redford. The collection is produced in the US and Japan and prices range from $200 to $2,000.

Childs said in an interview that he aims to launch e-commerce before the end of 2016.
