Spring summer 2016



 Ultra feminine and textured:


  • Lace is THE fabric of this season, used as a peek-a-boo lining or a main material, it has been used throughout all collections
  • Veils (cotton and others) for transparency and lightweight feel
  • Silk and other soft fabrics like VISCOSE that are better adapted to children's wear
  • Natural fabrics like LEATHER, imitation leather and suede for mid-season designs
  • Detailed fabrics like dotted swiss and printed cotton
  • Textured fabrics such as crêpe and seer-sucker are back

& comfort

For children and boys in particular, comfort is always a priority:

  • KNITTED JERSEY with detail thread inlays and rich, rustic accenting
  • VISCOSE (usually with a cotton blend) comfortable and fluid is becoming more common in children's wear
  • DENIM is still a firm favourite with different washing and dying techniques
  • Technical materials (like neoprene) are getting more traction thanks to the rise in sportswear and streetwear.
