Tuss: It's Swedish For Awesome, Minimalist Baby Clothes

More news from the Bubble. Actually, tuss stands for 'the ultimate simple solution,' an English acronym for a Swedish company. Call it what you want, it works.

Tuss was started [say it with me] two years ago in Stockholm to create clothes for babies and kids that are "minimalistic in color and design, with a timeless yet contemporary feel where the Scandinavian traditions of functionalism and simplicity are visible."

The studied plainness of tuss actually reminds me of muji, but when you factor in the quality and the small-scale production runs, it's more like muji-meets-Jil Sander. Early Jil Sander, from the pre-Prada debacle. But it's all for kids. And babies.

It's not cheap; the krona prices work out to around $25-35 for babies, and $50-70 for kids, and $100+ for cashmere/cotton. But cheap and Swedish isn't available in black & white, only blue and yellow.

Before you say it, I'll say it for you. Obviously, it's possible to go a little too Sprockets with a kid. But realistically, the only ones at risk are the children of over-Sprocketed parents, and they're beyond our help, anyway.

It's already at babygeared - not under collections, but if you click on Attire and Baby Staples, it's there... in (dare I say it) Black and White...
