TORONTO, Nov. 6, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - From the mother-daughter-bestie trio of Smash + Tess, comes an exciting new collaboration fit for the whole family: Sesame Street! Smash + Tess have carved out a niche for themselves in the slow fashion market with their cult-worthy unisex and multi-generational loungewear, made with the highest ethical standards and materials. On November 7th, Smash + Tess is taking their family-friendly ethos one step further with a collection of rompers printed with the faces of Cookie Monster, The Count, Big Bird, and the rest of the gang in celebration of Sesame Street's 50th anniversary. Loungewear lovers can look cute and feel great as 5 per cent of the proceeds on launch day will be donated to the nonprofit educational organization behind Sesame Street, Sesame Workshop, whose mission is to help kids grow smarter, stronger, and kinder.
"Growing up watching Sesame Street and now sharing it with our own children, reinforces the timelessness of the show, meaningful characters, and significant themes; all developed to create a more thoughtful, compassionate, and inclusive community. As mothers, we not only care deeply about our own children, but the welfare and education of children worldwide. For us, partnering with Sesame Street is a dream come true!", express Ashley Freeborn, Mercedes Laporte, and Teresa Freeborn, the three owners of Smash + Tess.
The two limited-edition Smash + Tess x Sesame Street rompers come in a full range of sizes from XXS-XXL for women and men ($129), and children's sizes three months to 11 years ($53), each featuring a print of the show's classic cast. They're made from a thicker version of the brand's signature blend of cotton, rayon, and bamboo, with a buttonless placket, cute cuffed jogger bottoms, and easy-undo hidden snaps for the men's models and kids sizes up to 2T.
Cookie Monster, Elmo, and Oscar the Grouch take centre stage on the Monster Romper, with an edgy all-over white print on a black base. The Street Smart Romper has the rest of the gang represented: The Count, Big Bird, and Grover, drawn in black on a cool heather grey background.
