The Kid Shows from Paris, individual kids fashion for spring 2016
The Kid Shows in its second exhibition has established itself as an alternative showcase for individual kids fashion labels with new first time brands and established names. Previewing spring/summer 2016 the mix of a few bigger names such as Bobo Choses with relative newcomers works well within its village hall atmosphere, though the offerings here are a million miles away from what you would find in most village halls!

Playtime Paris kidswear spring 2016 previews, pale and interesting!
Playtime Paris kidswear spring 2016 didn’t reflect all the bold colour I saw at Pitti Bimbo last week, rather it looked pale and interesting, more the northern European complexion than the Mediterranean! Muted soft sorbet colours, subtle grey’s and natural stone tones, soft Liberty style prints and fine line checks on white or monochromatic block letters filled the large main exhibition hall.
Pitti Bimbo 81 – Pitti Colour trend, a very bright kidswear spring 2016 is coming

A quick post today featuring one of the news stories of Pitti Bimbo, new launch Une Fille, a teenage fashion label from Groupe CWF.

Luxury kids fashion from Mischka Aoki for fall/winter 2015
A lush new shoot for the luxury kids fashion of Mischka Aoki today for fall/winter 2015 at least for us in the Northern Hemisphere! Confusingly on their website its listed as S/S15 but that is because this is an Australian based label and their coming season is indeed spring/summer while we shiver in the rain and snow! Inspired by ‘The Judgement of Paris” and ancient Greek mythology recreated as ...
