Kicokids is a charming children’s wear collection that was born of love and nostalgia. In 2003, Tia Cibani (a.k.a. Kico), founder and Creative Director, decided to express her love for the little ones in her life through a collection of cuddly knits. The result? A cohesive collection of pullovers, cardigans, dresses, skirts and more. As the fan club grew, Shu Pu (a.k.a. Kitty) joined as a partner, and what started as a hobby expanded into a complete collection of knits and wovens, as well as accessories and fun lifestyle products. kicokids is a collection full of treasures and details that does not compromise function, comfort, and fun.
Having previously collaborated on a women’s high-end collection, Tia and Kitty share a passion for fashion. Tia initially launched kicokids in reference to nostalgia, innocence, and “the good old days” of childhood. Kitty brings with her a complimentary point of view, one that is authentic to her essence–global, quirky, avant-garde, playful, adventurous and fun. While Tia’s aesthetic focuses on the feminine side of the collection, Kitty takes the lead in developing cool boy’s styles that are full of surprises and delights. With further input from the real pros – parents of children ages 2 to 12 – kicokids has become a vital and ever-evolving collection, combining the sweet harmony of comfort and style, with the high quality construction required for active lives.
What started out as a fully fashion knits collection has expanded into woven styles, making for even more fun and variety, Tia and Kitty share the vision to grow the kicokids concept into more than just fashion - a complete collection of children’s wear and accessories that fits all occasions.
