Sustainability and kids fashion in Copenhagen CIFF Youth
Sustainability and kids fashion in Copenhagen at the CIFF Youth kids trade fair last week are a natural pairing. There’s always been a sense with Scandinavia of a less frantic consumerism, the interior design world here reflects that with Danish homes featuring designer led pieces that are carefully considered before purchase. The Nordic countries were also some of the pioneers in the use of certified organic cotton and new technology for outerwear, ...
Texture wins for kids fashion F/W 2019 Playtime Paris
Texture wins for kids fashion winter 2019 at a busy Playtime Paris kids trade show. A special kind of curly faux shearling was all over the place at the recent kids trade show, call it teddy bear or even its 70’s version Borg fabric. It’s an evolution from the super shaggy furs of the last few winter seasons, although there were plenty of those still too and the very ...
Kids fashion trends at Pitti Bimbo 88 Florence
Kids fashion trends at Pitti Bimbo 88 are mainly an extension of the bubbling under feelings from last year. Today I’m showing my pick from the exhibition stands with catwalk shots to follow later.

Playtime Paris previews kids fashion summer 2019
Playtime Paris previews kids fashion summer 2019. Firstly I have to mention the heat, because it was the first thing on everyone’s mind. There’s a history here, two years ago was a similar heatwave summer in June and as the main Playtime building is an eco building it doesn’t allow air conditioning and it became too hot, last year was not so bad, this year we were back to debilitating heat. I don’t ...

A fresh white cotton shirt or dress in a crisp light weight or broderie anglaise, a small or large scale gingham check, a ...
