CUBCOATS AND APOCALYPTO KIDS WIN THE ONE-TO-WATCH AWARD
The Nest, Archivi
Returning to Pitti again, as it does every year, is the presentation of the One-to-watch
Award, the prize awarded by fashion blog Pirouette to the most innovative and interesting
brands at Pitti Bimbo.
There are two winners for the 2019 show. The winner of the “Designer” category is
Cubcoats, the new Californian brand that launched a very interesting product on the
market in 2017: soft toys you can cuddle and take to bed, that transform into lovely warm
hoodies when necessary. With a focus on materials, great practicality for mums and an
extra cuddly friend for the kids, the Cubcoats have all it takes to become cult objects.
In the “Fashion” category, the One-to-watch Award went to Apocalypto Kids, a brand
created by two young Estonian artists who brought their high impact style to Pitti, designed
for girls who are fast growing up. “Keep the eye on me” is the title of the collection: little
faux fur coats, tweed trousers, strong colours, mini-dresses with big appliqué eyes and lots
Katie Kendrick, chief editor of Pirouette, presented the award to the two prizewinners: a
maxi wooden compass designed by Portuguese artists Maria and João from So-So.
