Home sweet home! After a whirlwind trip around Europe, stopping by Kleine Fabriek, Pitti Bimbo, FIMI, Bubble London and, finally, Playtime Paris, the Children’s Team is back in New York. We’re pulling together our comprehensive trade show wraps but while we’re working on that, take a look at the latest trends from Paris.
Shades of green and blue were key for F/W 13 color–from the emerald cape at Billieblush to Chat Mechant’s jade denim with plastic piping. Noch Mini wowed us with their super cool ’90s-meets-Aztec patterns and Livly’s dainty feather prints were so sweet for baby. Stand out items for F/W 13 include: “fancy” sweatshirts (think lace, sequins, crochet, glitter); printed, metallic or waxed denim; quilted sweatshirts; metallic treatments and brocade detail.
