Some of my favourite labels are at the CPH Kids fashion fair in Copenhagen and it is always a pleasure to visit with a relaxed friendly atmosphere and a strong stylish vibe.
This edition saw a new children’s fashion magazine FROM launched in conjunction with the fair which has a strong teen element to it and a Pop up Shop by Normann Copenhagen with cushions, bowls and other small transportables.
The trends of last winter in kids fashion are still holding strong, things like woodland prints, native animals for prints and graphics, Nordic patterned sweaters. There is a move to gold and black lurex here as seen also in Florence instead of silver and a great tone of copper for boots by Bisgaard.
Tones overall are more subdued in the fashion brands with lots of grey and grape or berry shades, knits are still very relevant and flourescent touches still look fresh. The traditional Scandinavian print labels such as H.J.O.R.T.H. Copenhagen, Katvig, Ej sikke lej and Smafolk are still using bright colour though as their core buyer loves the style and won’t be wanting any changes there.
