Lord’s - The Home of Cricket is this week launching a brand new collection of stylish baby wear and children’s clothing called ‘Little Legends from Lord’s’. This exciting new collection features babies’ bodysuits & bibs, t-shirts, rugby polo shirts, a cricket sweater and a sunhat in sizes from newborn to 6 years.  The product and design has been created to capture all that is special about Lord’s, and reflects the fun of a day at the ‘Home of Cricket’.

The luxury baby wear collection comprises a bodysuit, a sleepsuit with hat and a set of three bibs in red, green and blue.  Both babysuits are in a high quality, easy care cotton-rich fabric, with attention to detail key to the design and comfort of each garment.  The long-sleeved sleepsuit and hat feature a fun cricket design printed with words and pictures including the Ashes urn, balls and stumps, and embroidered with the ‘Little Legends from Lord’s’ logo.  The bodysuit features the motif ‘Born Legend’ and an embroidered cricket ball.

The children’s wear features two cotton-rich T-shirts saying ‘I Love Cricket’ and ‘Star Batsman’ that will appeal to any junior cricket fan.  For cooler days there are two designs of stylish long-sleeved rugby polo shirts in soft cotton with the words ‘Future Legend’ on the reverse.  Any budding Kevin Pietersen will love the traditional look cable knit sweater made from the softest cotton, complete with two tone trim at collar, cuff and waist, but without the feel of scratchy wool.  The collection is completed by a floppy cotton sunhat, perfect for wearing while watching dad play cricket on the village green or a day at the beach.

Elly Ford, MCC’s Marketing Manager said, “The new ‘Little Legends from Lord’s’ collection has been designed to reflect the fun of a day at the cricket and to capture what is special about Lord’s.  The clothing celebrates the Lord’s traditions and heritage in a modern and lively way.  Every year we have thousands of visitors to Lord’s as match spectators or visitors on the Lord’s Tour.  The collection will appeal to families who wish to take away a souvenir from the ‘Home of Cricket’ for their child.   The clothing also makes a perfect gift for the cricket fan who has young children – and what better present for your friend’s newborn baby than a ‘Little Legends from Lord’s’ bib set or sleep suit.”
