Next showed off their fall/winter 2013 kids fashion last week and there is a distinctly retro 70′s feel to the collection. In the girlswear there is a repeating motif of a rabbit in different guises which alludes to an overall woodland theming.
Tiny floral prints reminiscent of 70′s Liberty and Laura Ashley prints are used on cotton and needlecord for dresses, tops and skirts and team with handkints or shaggy gilets. There is also a more minimal monochrome line and some cool tailored coats with gold buttons military style but that almost fits into a 70′s retro vibe too.
The boyswear is a little more modern with classic chino pants, blazer jackets and checked shirts being the normal mainstays but I did like a quirky skeleton knitted sweater and there are some wonderful knitted hat and scarf accessories for madness in the snow.
Next fall /winter kids fashion collection showed 70′s retro inspired prints displayed on a hardboard cut tree.

Boyswear is a little too predictable still at Next for fall 2013 but I liked this skeleton print sweater.
