modern kids clothing for curious minds and playful spirits



AOKO NOKO is a kids clothing and lifestyle brand based in New York City. As a family company, our name is a play on our children's initials – A.K. and N.K., as they were the ones who inspired this chapter of our lives. Their curious minds and playful spirits, combined with our love for art, reflects the design aesthetic for our brand.

Our designs are modern, playful yet sophisticated, and thoughtfully crafted. We love playing with tonal textures and graphic patterns while adding splashes of colors, and putting special care in little details such as fun reflective elements that highlight the artistic energy of our brand. 

With over 18 years of experience in the fashion industry, we put a lot of care and thought into every detail of our design process. We are passionate about creating lasting and neutral unisex pieces that can be passed from one child to the next. Since kids are all about comfort, our pieces are designed with that in mind; allowing them to be free, creative, and expressive in any setting!
