Children’s designer fashion for next autumn/winter 2013 was once again well attended at Pitti Bimbo 76 with an astonishing 400 Russian buyers making the journey to look at the new trends and buy the top designers in kids fashion today.
Here is my personal view from the front, a quick first edit, more on the trends to follow, some interesting new entries were on the catwalk this time, both Quis Quis from Stefano Cavallieri and Philipp Plein presented strong collections and the spirit of winter was ever present with bare trees and snowy effect catwalks the most popular theme.
Check out Pitti Bimbo 75 for a look back at the summer edition.

Patterned brocade appeared in nearly every collection at Pitti Bimbo for winter 2013 childrenswear
Children’s classic books formed the theme at Il Gufo, note the great shaded stitching on the hem of this red silk dress.
At the end of the Il Gufo kids catwalk show models handed out classic novels and lined the edge of the stage.

Wonderful brocade 60′s retro inspired coat from the children’s fashion range of Twin-Set by Simona Barbieri
Cute opening child dancers at Quis Quis which had a colourful beginning for fall fashion 2013
Quis Quis featured some extravagantly beaded dresses which were a signature style of the designer Stefano Cavallieri’s old label I Pinco Pallino.
They haven’t had a catwalk show for a few years but children’s label Simonetta always have great desirable looks in key with current trends, there was a lot of tulle this season.
Philipp Plein from Germany was another new label on the kids catwalks at Pitti and he showed a very Rock’n'Roll cool aesthetic for winter 2013
The snowy forest was a favourite theme, here Philipp Plein boots feature the skull which peppered his kids collection for fall 2013
