FLOWERS & STRIPES AND A TOUCH OF FIFTIES VIBES: THE RECIPE FOR SS19 KIDS’ ELEGANCEBack to top
A sparkling mood with a floral soul, featuring surprising interspersions of striped motifs. The Fifties are a powerful suggestion for a wardrobe that favours natural, optical white juxtaposed with bright, sophisticated tones. The fabrics are soft and enveloping, enriched with sequins and delicate coatings. Flowing shapes developed in lightweight, bright fabrics are enriched by the blend of floral and striped prints.
Dsquared2 – Ready and waiting for a summer in jeans peppered with sheer rock star grit. Young rebels with a colourful style wear denim jackets, biker jackets, animal prints, patches, brash colours and leather garments. A bold but playful collection in line with the DNA of the brand.
Miss Grant - Mood inspired by 1950s American Movie: colors such as Tiffany green, and silver stand out. The fabrics are soft and enveloping like tulle: the main character is the sequin. Silver gets noticed in the polka dots of taffeta or on delicate spreads.
Neil Barrett – The iconic “Thunderbolt” pattern, developed in a variety of brilliant colours, is reworked with pop graphics and printed or embroidered on various garments, including Tees, sweats, casual trousers, shorts and poplin shirts.

THE ECO ATTITUDE GOES BEYOND THE NICHE DIMENSION!Back to top
A planet that cares about the health and future of children, but also the wellbeing of the ecosystem. The green attitude has always been vital in the newborn segment, for coordinating rompers, covers, sleeping bags and accessories, but also for occasion wear and everyday wear. Ultra-soft and by definition eco-friendly, the materials from baby homewear and knitwear companies aim for absolute comfort.
Two in a castle - The collection is designed and produced in Greece using natural materials such as cotton and organic cotton. The brand wants to create collections full of new ideas and unique designs that follow the trends but always with respect to childhood.
THE CHIC SIDE OF ACTIVE RESEARCHBack to top
The appeal of the athleisure trend evolves in sync with the accentuated aspiration to comfort. A fashion that brings together young and old but does not neglect the special dynamic needs of little ones: this is the mini-me dimension, which combines contemporaneity and style in an outfit aligned with the trends of adult fashion. For girls, an ultra-feminine palette of pastel tones becomes active thanks to fluorescent touches.
Hilda.Henri – For the SS19 season, Hilda.Henri pays tribute to all those who begin something. Every beginning contains something great – and there’s no better time than the spring-summer season to remember this. BEGINNING OF A POEM has become a line with fun, colourful prints.
