Kidswear Runway Inspirations

Never underestimate the world of childrenswear as it might be evolving even faster than that of adults. And it only seems fair, since the “mini-me” trends are everywhere, that mothers and daughters alike seem to be pulling off the same trends.

In a way, it’s really good for the industry as sales would ultimately shift upwards. But it’s also really great for mothers as they won’t have to bend over backwards to find the one piece of clothing that will get their kids’ vote of approval. So if we’re really comparing childrenswear to womenswear, we would undoubtedly pinpoint many trends that have been surfacing, such as animal prints, florals, all-things denims and big over-zealous headbands. And if we look closely at the kidswear runways, we notice that big brands such as Mayoral and Abel & Lula have been displaying a whole lot more where that came from. So mommies, if you’re looking to twin with your kids, then search no more, as we’ve rounded up the most prominent kidswear trends alongside their respective runway inspirations.

Baby Dior Unveils Spring-Summer 2019 Collection

So what does Baby Dior have in store for us come Spring-Summer 2019? A journey to the four corners of the world, worthy of Christian Dior’s recurrent desire to travel. And so, Cordelia de Castellane, Baby Dior’s Creative Director, thought back to the very first time a fortune teller told Christian Dior “You will have to travel widely”. Because widely he did.

The collection takes part of a charming story spanning from India, to Italy and Japan, presenting the House’s heritage with de Castellane’s vivid imagination. The journey kick-starts in the land of the Arabian Nights and more specifically in a majestic palace, where silk and twinkling tulle come together to create fluid dresses of Persian red, ivory and gold. The saga resumes in Pondicherry, where boys get all dressed up in pieces featuring tiger and elephant patches, sacred animals in India, as well as clocks, while girls glow in their Indian pink and saffron dresses and safari jackets. Along comes the Land of the Rising Sun, at the heart of Tokyo. Little girlies shine in pleated skirts and cherry blossom fabrics, inspired by Japanese school uniforms and boys revel in denim. Next stop, the US’ grand boulevards in bikes and skateboards. The dress code? Sequined blousons, pastel colors and embroidered rainbows that recall Californian vibes. The voyage ends in Naples, where our young adventurers stroll around in dresses and jumpsuits with precious embroidery.
