The days of being restricted to gender-based fashion choices are dead and gone. For some time now, companies such as m/f people and Zara have been branching out with unisex lines that cater to EVERYONE, and the movement is clearly picking up steam, as mainstream retailer Abercrombie & Fitch has just announced the launch of its very first gender-neutral clothing line for the pre-tween set.
Aptly dubbed the Everybody Collection, the Abercrombie kids line was made for “every kind of kid and every kind of adventure.” It includes 25 styles of tops, bottoms, and accessories, with sizes ranging from 5/6 through 15/16.
It’s relatively affordable too: T-shirts will run you about $20 a pop, and the priciest item is a bomber jacket coming in around $70.
The brand issued a statement on its decision to launch the line, saying, “Many customers, when shopping across genders, do not necessarily want to be restricted to certain styles and colors.”
Stacia Andersen, brand president of Abercrombie & Fitch and Abercrombie Kids, also elaborated on that point to Women’s Wear Daily, adding, “Parents and their kids don’t want to be confined to specific colors and styles, depending on whether shopping for a boy or a girl. Our Everybody Collection is one assortment, in one size run, that covers the trends we are seeing in both color and style.”
The collection will become part of the ongoing kids’ offerings and will see additions come summertime and back-to-school season.
