P.O.P. Pitti Optical Power from 21-23 June in Florence

Pitti Bimbo 87

Pitti Bimbo 87

Next month I will be off to Florence again. And a visual and virtual spectacle will be waiting for me. Stripes that move, sway and cross again and again. The trade show will elicit new horizons of perception and perspectives on reality. A visual and virtual spectacle.

Because the theme for this summer is: P.O.P – Pitti Optical Power

No black and white in Fortezza da Basso but rather a kaleidoscope of full colour patterns to make living interiors playful and hypnotic between 21-23 June 2018.

The world of children’s wear will meet in Florence again and I am so curious to see what our kids will wear in summer 2019.
Pitti Bimbo in Florence is the world’s top kids fashion trade show. The kids wear business gathers to see new season’s trends, kids catwalk shows and to attend fabulous events and parties.

A lot of new exhibitors will show and the event schedule is packed. As usual!

Impressions from Pitti Bimbo June 2017 – day two

pitti bimbo kokori

Day two started with a brunch. Set in a beautiful private garden and held by Roberto Cavalli. The collection was presented throughout the garden and it really looked very special. I went with my good friend Dimitra from Little Pop Up because we wanted to discuss and brainstorm a few ideas for future projects as well.

Kids fashion, good food and interesting conversation – what could be a better start of the day?

Here are some impressions from the Roberto Cavalli brunch:

We went straight back to the fair from the brunch. It was already around 11.30h and together with Dimitra we decided to check out the Kids Fizz area.

And who did we meet there first thing? Berlin brand Noe & Zoe.

Next stop was Paade Mode. Once the lifestyle look book will be out for this collection I will share more. Here are two of my favorite dresses, but as usual – it is too difficult to decide because everything is so lovely.

Then I had a very nice and long conversation with Kirsi from Sand in your shorts plus another meeting. Exciting things will happen in the near future. I will keep you posted!

It was 16h already and I absolutely wanted to go back to The Nest and see some more new and small brands {my favorites}.

Especially Kokori I wanted to see live – and it was as beautiful as I expected. Gorgeous garments with lots of great details in the best colors.
