Stuttgart- and Berlin-based fashion label Blutsgeschwister, which has recorded strong growth since 2001, has announced the release of a new children's edition called Blutsgeschwister Kids that will be available beginning with the spring/summer 2013 season. Previously, Blutsbaby served as a line for babies and small children with styles identical to the womenswear line Blutsschwester. 

The new collection will include 15 styles for babies (boys and girls from three to eighteen months) and 45 styles for girls from one-and-a-half to twelve years of age. Delivery dates will come in twice a year in January and July and will include relevant POS materials. CEO Stephan Künz explained, “Our partners and many mothers have demanded more kidswear apparel. We see high potential in letting Blutsbaby grow as well as in the comprehensive Blutsgeschwister Kids collection. Our trading partners will receive a unique product that sets us apart from the rest of the kidswear competition.“ 

For 2012, the company also plans to continue its international growth. Blutsgeschwister founder and chief designer Karin Ziegler reflected, “It's a great opportunity to find sustainable success in our collection’s unique joie de vivre, which is reflected in the kids collection and aims to amaze the little ones.”
