Pitti Bimbo 86: What to Expect of the Kids' Fashion Fair
Let’s all take a trip to Florence.
We’re sure men’s fashion aficionados have been following the Pitti Uomo shows this week, but did you know about the event’s little brother, Pitti Bimbo? Like Pitti Uomo, the kids’ branch of the Italian fashion fair will showcase the best in fashion for the year to come – just on a slightly smaller scale. The three-day event kicks off next week with displays from the biggest names in fashion, from Little Marc Jacobs to Mini Rodini. So what trends can you expect to see at Pitti Bimbo? Read on to find out.
Eco-friendly trends have been creeping up more and more in fashion in recent years, and as such Pitti Bimbo will dedicate a section of this year’s event to those employing earth-friendly practices. Brands like Huggee and Filobio will highlight how they use organic materials or sustainable practices to reduce fashion’s impact on the globe.
KidzFIZZ is for the innovators. This section of Pitti Bimbo will highlight those brands introducing new shapes or materials to the world of kids’ fashion, and will include some of our favorites like Oeuf, Mini Rodini and Tobias & the Bear. The section will also give space to relatively new brands like Caffe d’Orzo to show off their collections.
Here’s one for the sportswear crowd. This section will encompass everything from big name sportswear brands like Moschino and Little Marc Jacobs to sturdy footwear favorites like Timberland and Melissa. And since Crocs are cool now, they’ll be showing at this section as well.
And here comes the streetwear. Here we’ll get to see from brands like Desigual as well as slightly off-the-radar labels like EMC Everything Must Change. The section will also put an emphasis on denim and skating brands like DJ DUTCH JEANS.
