Trend notes for spring-summer 2017 from Pitti Bimbo
I’ve just returned from Florence, from the most influential children’s fashion fair Pitti Bimbowhere almost 500 kids fashion and design brands showed how next spring-summer will look like. Here’s what to expect from cool little trendsetters.
1 . The new world of prints and motifs
Cartoon inspired patterns and prints is a trend that not only Desigual and Kenzo, but also cool smaller brands offer for next spring-summer season. Here are examples from Italian Leitmotiv and Cape.
2. Candy shop colors
Pretty pastels and candy shop colors is another tendency worth following! Italian Maghi e Maci and Trottolini and Latvian Paade Mode are supertastic examples of this trend. Especially Paade Mode with its delicate lace, tulle and crepe chiffon.
3 Unusual stripes
Stripes and summer are like synonyms, but next year’s stripes are a bit more witty than your usual blue-red-white ones. Italian Stella Jean and Turkish Mr.Uky show the way the stripes are supposed to be worn!
4. Urban couture
Black and white theme is also there, with a punk urban twist and metallic highlights. Inspired by grownups fashion and city life, Andorine from Portugal is the perfect examples of this trend.
