Bringing it back, 80’s retro style! Kids 80s t-shirts

I was feeling a bit nostalgic when creating these new designs for Little Trendstar.  Perhaps it was because of the milestone birthday’s in my family this summer  (40, 1, oh and mine…not necessarily a milestone, but old enough), but I couldn’t help but look to the past for inspiration.  A child of the 80’s, this was definitely a time in my life that seemed to have had the most influence.  Bold colors, bolder patterns and iconic technology all made a statement that has stuck with me throughout my artistic life.  Design was just moving to a more digital feel, 8-bit ruled and graphics were strong, loud, colorful and bright.  Patterns were created from simple shapes, and it was all about repetition and line.  Taking these memories, I wanted to create new tees that captured this retro spirit by showcasing patterns and designs that are simple, yet bold, and make a graphic statement on their own.  Patterns and designs that I remember seeing as a kid whether it was on a wall, a piece of fabric or on my favorite arcade game. Whether you, as a parent now,  were a child of the 80’s or you just love the bold graphic design of that era, I hope you enjoy these tees and your kiddo loves wearing them as well!

Enjoy this sneak peak of a few our kids 80s t-shirts that will be available in September.  They are available now for pre-order in the Little Trendstar online shop!
