Clothing chain Abercrombie & Fitch will be making a chain of gender neutral fashion options for kids
The line, called the “Everybody Collection,” will include 25 separate options for kids, according to a release. The company said the change was asked for by parents who didn’t want to be restricted to certain styles and colors for their kids.
“Parents and their kids don’t want to be confined to specific colors and styles, depending on whether shopping for a boy or a girl,” Abercrombie and Fitch Brand President Stacia Andersen said. “Our Everybody Collection is one assortment, in one size run, that covers the trends we are seeing in both color and style.”
Abercrombie is not the first retailer to make the change. Retail chain Target previously made its toy aisle gender neutral in 2015 and added gender neutral decor to its children’s collection in 2016, according to Today.
