children’s apparel inspired by Japanese kawaii characters, modern
design and typography. The name, “Whistle & Flute” comes from the
English rhyming-slang for a suit of clothes.
The collection was designed by the husband and wife duo of Ryan and
Miranda McCullagh. Ryan is a graphic designer specializing in apparel
printing and Miranda has half of a fashion-design school degree, an
artistic eye and an intuition for design trends. Miranda and Ryan
decided to create the line following the birth of their son, Akira. They
wanted to create a line of children’s clothing featuring printed
designs that they themselves would wear. These two lovebirds first began
working together creatively in the indie-pop band, The Paper Cranes and
they have carried that passion to their work on Whistle & Flute.
All Whistle & Flute clothing is printed made-to-order on
American Apparel clothing and feature original artwork by Miranda and
Fun fact: Miranda actually plays the flute.” And personally, who wouldn’t love a clothing brand with a subtitle, “Stylish clothing for dapper families.” That’s us, folks. *wink*
