Miki House, the Japanese-based kids clothing boutique, just opened in Bellevue.

With Stella McCartney doing Gap Kids, Marc Jacobs’ Little Marc line, and even Gucci and Fendi doing the high-fashion mini-me thing, it might be hard for certain kids to just be kids anymore.

But at the brand new Miki House in downtown Bellevue, you can still find bears stitched on sweatshirts and age-appropriate cuteness. The upscale children’s boutique chain is based in Kyoto, Japan and has flagship stores in Paris and Milan. The Eastside shop is the first stand-alone Miki House in America.

Though you’ll spot tiny leather jackets inside, anime-like artwork stitched onto shirts, hoodies, jeans, and shoes is the prevailing aesthetic. The upcoming 2011 spring/summer collection is full of harajuku embellishments for girls (think bows, skirts, and buttoned-up dresses) and anchors, trucks — nothing too avant-garde there — for little dudes.
