If you're an adult in need of extra comfort, joy and care this season, fashion houses and brands are here for you. Kate Spade, ModCloth and others have rolled out new and, in some cases, unexpected collections, collaborations and special products that elevate cuddly icons to haute status.
So indulge your inner child with this treasure trove. Hello Kitty made her foray into the world of cult-classic makeup with ColourPop. Christopher Ræburn offers a subversive take on Mickey Mouse, and references to "Minions" and "Trolls" (yes, really!) are popping up in unexpected — and unexpectedly chic — places.
Also, Fendi has no shortage of fuzzy and maniacally cute accessories inspired by the luxury brand's mascots, the playful Fendirumi. And patron saint of the chic inner-child movement, Donald Robertson, rolled out a collection with Junk Food Clothing. Add in dinosaurs (Coach), fluffy bunnies (Kate Spade New York) and playing cards (ModCloth), and it's a sure thing that there's enough whimsy to get you through the month and get 2017 started on a playful note.
