M&Co launches cool new Kite and Cosmic kids’ range in collaboration with Kate Garraway
M&Co has always been a fantastic place to find quality, affordable children’s clothing, but its latest collection is raising awareness and funds for a great cause, too.
Launched last week, Kite and Cosmic is a new range of children’s clothing and accessories, exclusive to M&Co. Designed in collaboration with presenter Kate Garraway, the collection is being sold in support of kids’ communication charity I CAN.
Established in 1888 to support the most vulnerable children, I CAN’s mission is that no child should be left out or left behind because of a difficulty speaking or understanding. Good Morning Britain and Smooth Radio presenter Kate Garraway is I CAN’s brand ambassador, helping to raise awareness of the charity and the children that it helps.

The result of Kate’s collaboration with M&Co is a fantastic line of clothing, for a truly worthy cause. Available for girls and boys aged 3-12 years, Kite & Cosmic is a fun, fashion-forward kidswear collection made up of comfortable yet stylish separates and quirky outfits for the season ahead. Prices start from £8.
We have too many favourites, but we do love the cute kitty sweater for girls (priced from £16, ages 3-12). Meanwhile, the super-smart shirt, waistcoat and bow-tie set for the boys (from £20, ages 3-13) is perfect for special occasions!

Among the accessories in the Kite and Cosmic range, we can’t resist this fluffy face cat bag (£8), complete with cat ears. (We know it’s in the kids’ range, ladies, but we’re sure if you fancied it yourself no-one would notice.)
“Soft yet durable”
Speaking about the Kite and Cosmic collection, Kate told us:
“I am so thrilled to be working with M&Co and supporting children’s communication charity I CAN.
“Since I have been working with I CAN, I have seen them make a difference to so many children’s lives. I am so happy to see them joining forces with such a staple of the British high street in M&Co.
“The range was so much fun to help create with M&Co’s brilliant design team, as I have been doodling ideas for children’s clothes for years! As, like I suspect a lot of mums, I often find it hard to get clothes for my kids that are practical, but also fun and comfy enough for them to really want to wear them. So, being involved with this campaign was a real passion project of mine. I am happy to say my children have given it their seal of approval!
“I have spent about a year in conversation with the brilliant people at M&Co to create a collection that is fun, exciting and fashionable. Kite and Cosmic uses fabrics that are soft yet durable, which is important to me as a mum. I wanted the range to include smart yet relaxed pieces for the boys, and cute, casual pieces for the girls. Everything in the Kite and Cosmic range can be mixed and matched to create an outfit perfect for your child.
“I’ve learnt so much about how a piece of clothing is developed, through sketches, mood boards and samples. The work that goes into creating a brand new range is amazing! I really hope that mums like the collection as much as I do.”
