Khloe Kardashian on How Her Life as "Auntie Koko" Inspires the Kardashian Kids Collection
Kardashian Kids successfully launched last year, and now the three sisters---Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe Kardashian---are bringing their loveable children's line to Nordstrom. We caught up with Khloe, who dished on what inspires their children's designs, why she loves being Auntie Koko, and the piece that North West would wear from the collection.
"What I love most is that we use my nieces and nephews as inspiration," Khloe tells InStyle. "Each of the kids has such different fashion sense, and it's fun to put that into a line together. I love designing such mini and cute fashion pieces."
"In the boys' line you can definitely see a ton of Mason, he’s very much our inspiration for it. As far as the girls' stuff, we fight back and forth about not making it too girly because Kim doesn’t dress North too, too girly, and if it was up to her we’d have a ton more black in this line," Khloe says. "I love that we do a jumpsuit for the girls, I just think they’re so cute. I also really love tutu skirts, so I made sure that they got put in the collection. I get fought on the tutus all the time because my sisters don’t love them. And who knows, I might not dress my kids like that in the future, but when I think about children’s clothes I think about glitter and little fairy skirts---I like pieces that are very girly."
The star revealed that aside from the latest collection including pieces that are very North (i.e. the purple harem pants) and very Penelope (i.e. the printed jumpsuit), there is something for every little one's taste. Styles for girls (size newborn to 5T) include playful rompers and dresses in geometric prints and shades of sweet lilac and ballet slipper-pink, while styles for boys (size newborn to 24 months) include everything from camo pants and khaki cargo shorts to lightweight denim button ups and jersey T-shirts.
And as far as her nieces and nephews go, Khloe admits that spending time with them is often the best part of her day. "I love that I get to see them all the time," she shares. "If you’re in any sort of bad mood they just make you so happy, and I get to give them back as well! I live a block away from Kourtney and they come to my house every day on a walk, and I have cookies that that Kourtney doesn’t keep at her house and they come here and they get the cookies. They think it’s a secret that their mom doesn’t know---It’s so cute, and they leave me pictures that they draw."
