Bonnie Baby and the British kids fashion leap into Florence for winter 2013 trend previews

In Florence for Pitti Bimbo 76,  I paid a visit to the Hotel Roma to meet Gareth from Bonnie Baby and his new kids fashion initiative Brilliant Little Britain bringing British baby and kids fashion companies to Florence to find new buyers while Pitti Bimbo the 76th edition was running.

With it’s British banner identity the group included Hucklebones and Indikidual too and Gareth has plans to expand for next season proviving buyers with a quick hit entry to some of the best British childrenswear brands.

The Hotel Roma and surrounding hotels are home to many buyers during the Pitti Bimbo season so it is a good spot for the group to show and they had commandeered the huge lobby area for the occasion which with its grand overtones and luxe marble floors had an at home expat feel.

Bonnie Baby have some new styles this season for fall/winter 2013 including a diamond knitted graphic and a penguin or owl intarsia knit to add to their popular fox design. Also a lovely graphic print which is a collaboration between designer Tracey Samuel with textile designer Garbo and Friends for snowsuits and outerwear.
