Rahrrr! Little Warriors makes primal, pricey clothes for kids


If "mini-me" Juicy Couture tees and Levi's skinny jeans aren't your idea of stylish kids clothes, try this concept on for size: edgy, Southwest-inspired baby and toddler clothes.

Designed by Maggie Fox, co-owner of L.A. vintage shop Filth Mart, Little Warrior -- a line of costume-y toddler clothes that boast Chimayo-inspired graphics -- launched Wednesday morning with its own website.

And it's so hip, it hurts. There are six styles in total, including a hand-embroidered hooded poncho of the ilk that might have cloaked Robert Plant in his Led Zeppelin days; T-shirts with bold graphics including a fang-filled mouth; and an ultra-baggy pants romper with a Chimayo-inspired print on the back that would fit right in at cool-kid cafe Casbah in Silver Lake.

Of course all this ironic coolness will cost you. Prices range from $22 for tiny little athletic shorts to $72 for the cape-like poncho and $74 for the romper -- which you just know your child will outgrow within three months.

But the designs, which are manufactured in L.A. using overdyed cotton blends, make for killer baby-shower gifts -- and range in size from newborn to 4T.

The line is available online now but will hit stores, including Clover in (where else?) Silver Lake, on May 15.
