Pitti Bimbo – 22 – 24. June 2017

pitti bimbo

Today in one month Pitti Bimbo will open it’s doors again. I had such a good time and show in January that I am very much looking forward to this edition. Of course I am always curious to see the new collections, run into friends and catch up with people from the industry, another lovely part is: Florence. Florence in June!

I cannot wait and really hope to see some of you at Pitti Bimbo next month.

Let’s have a look what will await us at the Fortezza da Basso and where you will see me for sure. One thing I really enjoyed at Pitti is that instead of one big hall you have several smaller {and not so small} buildings that are dedicated to different themes.

Thank you!

Wow!
What a start into the New Year. Boom! I like a good start. Fresh, inspirational, powerful and full of faith.

After I missed all the shows last summer because of our road trip and ‘only’ did CIFF KIDS last winter because of the baby, I decided to go 300% this season.

Starting with Pitti Bimbo in Florence {my first time}, 5 days later I was off to Playtime Paris and after a very quick pit stop at home I went to CIFF KIDS.

Intense yet very awesome. Meeting old friends, connecting with new. Catching up with brands, shop owners, agencies and, of course, other bloggers and journalists. Many very interesting conversations happened and for the first time I realized that Paul & Paula is really old. Haha! We are turning 7 this year in May.

CIFF KIDS 2017 – round up

ciff kids

CIFF KIDS 2017 is over. The fairs are over {for me}. Lots of inspiration and ideas are collected. Before the moment goes here is my round up from Copenhagen.

On my agenda is also a “January’ post – impressions, thank you’s, trends… stay tuned. I am hoping to put my thoughts together for tomorrow latest.

But first back to Copenhagen. The show is getting better and better. The lifestyle section more and more important. The Scandinavians are just great when it comes to design and when you walk the aisles of bedding, accessories and little furniture… well, you usually want it all.

The show has a good and relaxed atmosphere as well and buyers like to make appointments with busy brands at CIFF KIDS. It is more relaxed and less time pressure.

Pitti Bimbo A/W 2017 {highlights part two}

kalinka kids

After the catwalk edition and the first part of my personal highlights – here are my last bits from Pitti Bimbo.

On the first day I managed to walk 10km {I had a look on my phone yesterday evening}. I was exhausted at the end of the day. Positively exhausted – full of nice things I saw, lovely people I chatted too, good food I had and walking around a fortress to see the best of kids fashion is really very charming!

Let’s see what our kids will be wearing for A/W 2017:
