We were all totally blown away last year when we began to see the daily paper-dress creations of one amazing four-year-old affectionately known as Mayhem. With her mom as her assistant (well, maybe a little more), Mayhem’s wearable creations have always been colorful and creative, one-of-a-kind haute couture made of paper, tin foil, and tape. But beginning today, our kids can wear an actual Mayhem creation thanks to J. Crew’s brand-new collection Little Mayhem for J.Crew.
Little Mayhem for J.Crew’s line of dresses, separates, and accessories replaces the paper and tape with cotton and stitching but still captures Mayhem’s delightful imagination in each piece. And, in case you are wondering, yes, she was actually quite involved in the design process for this new line.
Unlike some of her in-home designs–like a recent hot-pink mermaid ensemble–all of the J.Crew pieces are made so our girls can still run, jump, and twirl to their hearts’ content. Or, as in this Girls Beaded Necklace, all of the above. Only adorably accessorized.

Priced from $22 for accessories to $110 for a party dress, we know a few young fans right in our own homes who would love to get their hands on one of Mayhem’s designs — if they save a whole lot of allowance. They’re definitely not cheap play clothes. However, unlike her in-home creations, there won’t be any paper cut risk. Though, Mayhem, if you can figure out a way to turn that hot-pink mermaid ensemble into a wearable and walkable outfit, we’ve got some girls lined up who’d be happy to model it for you any time.
Little Mayhem for J.Crew girls’ clothing collection launches today on J.Crew.com. And don’t miss any of Mayhem’s unique creations by following her mother’s Instagram account, 2sisters_angie.
