We know we’re still technically in the middle of winter, but we’re so excited about our new kids fashion collection for spring, that we had to share a preview! From deep sea exploration to artful fantasies and preppy rebels, our spring kids clothing has something for every style. Our design team created a collection we can’t wait to see on all of our Appaman fans. Here’s your first look at Appaman Spring 2016.
Boys Spring Style
For spring, we loved the idea of sending our boys into the deep sea. From octopus and other sea creature printed t-shirts and chambray short sleeve button down shirts (great for layering!) with angler fish and sea captain prints, the nautical theme got a street style twist for the new season. We also threw some fun pirate-inspired style into the mix in the form of graphic tees emblazoned with Blackbeard the pirate and a very tough looking pirate bulldog. Aaaar matey! Also on tap for boys, very cool dip-dye t-shirts to reflect the stylish ombre trend, rebel Polo shirts and our best-selling skinny twill pants in an array of spring-y shades.
Girls Spring Style
Nothing says spring like pretty shades of pink, fun punchy prints and cool hints of metallic. Our new girls fashion collection for spring 2016 has a little bit of all three of those. Our designers put a youthful spin on Miro’s surrealistic prints with fruit-printed rompers, dresses and skirts. For early spring, girls will love the soft wearable double knit collection of pink bomber jackets, shorts and shift dresses. For the athleisure-minded little ladies, the new Salmon Rose colored jogger pants are a sporty chic go-to pant she’ll wear with literally everything. We happen to love it paired with the Unicorn Circle Tee in Heather Grey (warning: we predict this tee is going to fly off the shelves, so snap it up while you can).
Spring Fine Tailoring
You can count on our Fine Tailoring collection this season to deliver classic style done the Appaman way. For all your spring and summer formal events, we’ve got you covered. From mod suits for boys–with trousers or shorts–to pretty dresses for girls in a palette of muted purple and grey, our spring Fine Tailoring collection hits on all of the right notes.
The Appaman Spring 2016 kids fashion collection is launching online and in stores this February. Since Punxsutawney Phil failed to see his shadow this year, we are in for an early spring! It’s not too soon to get excited about stowing away those winter layers and investing in some key spring pieces.

Our summer collection will be launching soon on Appaman.com. Here’s a sneak peek of some of our favorite looks and products.

Hey, Appaman fans! We’re thrilled to announce the arrival of our brand new Spring 2015 collection, now available to shop on Appaman.com. Though Punxatawney Phil, our nation’s favorite groundhog, has decided that we have a few more weeks of winter left, we’re too excited about our great, new warm weather styles to think too much about the chilly weather here in New York City.
We’d like to share a video with you that features some of our new styles, plus a preview of some late spring/early summer styles that are on their way (available next month). Shot on location in Brooklyn, NYC, with beautiful drone camerawork and direction from MCM Productions, we think it totally captures Appaman clothing worn for its primary purpose: playing and having fun.
Check out the full video below, or scroll down for highlights (more at the jump). Be sure not to miss the cameo by our furry mascot, Party Hat Husum!)
Have you heard? We teamed up with BabyLegs to bring you a limited edition capsule collection of socks and legwarmers. These accessories are a great way to add an extra pop of color to your outfit and customize your look according to your own personal style.
Socks are available for boys, girls, and Appaman Mini, and all come in two-packs that are fun to mix and match. In addition to socks, we’re also offering one-size-fits-most girls’ legwarmers, which make a great gift and look awesome layered over tights. (You can tuck them into boots without adding extra bulk to the foot.)
Check out the full collection here.
We’re excited once again to be featured in Earnshaw’s magazine, a favorite of everyone at Appaman HQ and everywhere in the kidswear industry. Grab their July 2014 issue or click over to this month’s “Trendspotting” feature to see our feather-like girls faux fur jacket…coming soon to Appaman.com!
We think you’ll love this fabulously glam coat just as much as we do (that is to say…a LOT).

Ever wonder how your Appaman “sausage” is made? Here’s how some of your favorite Spring/Summer 2014 looks began! Sketches by designer Susan Kay.
February 15, 2014 in New This Season
Every season, we share our inspiration with you on our Pinterest page. The creative process kicks off with the design team at Appaman HQ collecting images that, when put together, establish a feeling we want to capture in the collection. Vintage photos, patterns, color palettes, anything goes!
Click the images below to visit our inspiration boards for girl and boy. This year, we wanted to pay tribute the relaxed, carefree, nostalgic style of vintage California beach/surf culture. We hope we like what you see!
Susan Kay is our ultra-talented designer that’s responsible for taking the Appaman aesthetic and turning it into a fashion-forward, cohesive collection with cool and wearable pieces. We asked her to share some pages from her sketchbook so our fans could take a peek behind the scenes into her creative process and see where some of their favorite Fall/Winter 2013 pieces began.
There are many steps involved in design and production, starting with Susan’s initial meetings with Harald, where they discuss looks that inspire them, favorite vintage styles, and upcoming trends they love. Lynn weighs in with feedback from buyers about what our customers like and styles they want to see.
In the meantime, Susan begins to sketch, and the ideas start to come to life. She draws out croquis (fashion sketches of outfits) and individual pieces to visualize the garments and establish the look of the season. She experiments with different designs she has in mind and adds notes about the detailing.
Most of the styles will undergo lots of revisions before they go to production (if they make it that far), so it’s always fun to look back on the process and see the origins of some of our favorite pieces…
