Monnalisa launch Couture kids collection of elaborate girls dresses for ceremony and partywear.

Monnalisa chose to show just a limited selection of their kidswear for the s/s 14 season in a tableux dedicated to the new Monnalisa Couture collection. Unlike past seasons where they have produced a full kids catwalk show.

Fittingly set in one of Florence’s old grand palaces, the Palazzo Capponi Vettori, an old red brick building dating from the Fifteenth Century with an astonishing grand room ceiling covered in grotesque frescoes, the work of  Bernadino Poncetti from 1585.

The collection was presented in dimly lit rooms so I hope you can see enough from my grainy pictures but the setting was so fantastic and is after all part of the joy of coming to the kidswear collections in Florence I wanted to share it here.

The dresses in silk seem to be classical in design with details such as Swarovski crystal embroidery or fluttery petal layers at Monnalisa Couture for spring 2014
