Green Brook, NJ, May 24, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- NY Kids Fashion Week and Europe's kid's wear exhibitions for the upcoming season have come and gone, and the verdict is in: Kids fall 2013 clothing trends
offer the perfect fusion of rich fabrics, lux details, high-end fashion and quirky, playful graphics and prints! And the good news for those who love that feminine look, this season's fashions focus on dresses in a range of silhouettes and styles, from dirndls to sheaths, shifts to flowing draped looks.
When it comes to little girls clothing and toddler girls clothing trends, designers were in agreement: lux, high-end styles and attention to detail trumps all. Whether the overall look incorporated a touch of romance, as did LamanBlu's mix of velvet ribbon trims, Venice lace and rich jewel tones; a dash of uber-trendy vintage style, like Mim-Pi's stunning Fair-Isle and chevron sweater sets; or Appaman's innovative mix of innovative shapes, fun graphics and kid-friendly style, the kid and tween clothing looks for fall were all about the upscale.
Baby Girl Clothes
For the littlest fashionistas, the focus for fall is on details that make all the difference. Mim-Pi showed an eclectic collection for baby girls that featured a gorgeous, rich mix of deep rose, gray, lime and blue shades gracing sweater sets, t-shirts and skirts, all dressed up with splashes of neon color, glitter and shine, as well as adorable pom-pom accents and contrasting Lurex detailing.
Other designers followed a trend toward lux elegance, showing baby girl clothes
crafted from the softest shades of cream and white, all dressed up with amazing detailing, from the hand-knit rosettes at Oibo and Nanan to the embroidered sleeves and hams at Val & Max. For a truly luxurious touch, don't forget the faux rabbit fur gracing the collars of the winter girls coats at Ermanno Scervino.
Toddler Girls Clothing
Toddler girls clothing trends reflected an interplay between vibrant color, brilliant patterns and nature-inspired artwork. At Missoni, bright, beautiful stripes lit up the runway on a fun paint box of a poncho that incorporated saturated hues and vintage, boho-chic chevrons.
Mixing is in, matching is out, as evidenced by the wild color palettes at Rykiel Engant and Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, who showed several bright looks all dressed up with two-tone tights no little girl could resist! Unkk took the multi-hued look even further with gorgeous tights in a rainbow of geometric color-blocked shapes.
For the little nature-lover, animal themed prints were big on the Fall 2013 runways, with images running the gamut from photo-realistic graphics to adorable, whimsical animal appliques. Wild showed a selection of tops featuring photo art, while Chat Merchant followed suit with black and white graphics. Imps & Elfs offered quirky tops with stylized bear designs, while Fred's World upped the fun quotient with cute animal appliques. All of the designers used natural color palettes for their menageries, from grassy greens and ocean blues to warm earth tones.
Animal-inspired prints were a big part of the eclectic pattern mixing going on at the European runway shows, with Dutch designer Tumble 'n Dry showing gorgeous tiger print winter girls coats paired playfully with striped skinny jeans. Others meshed dots, stripes, hearts and other bold geometric shapes for a playful, young-at-heart feel, such as Deux par Deux's collection of knit tops, skirts and dresses, all paired with perfectly mismatched hats and leggings.
As for tween clothing trends, runway styles ranged from ornate, garden-fresh patterns -- like Roberto Cavalli's stunning floral tunic tops and Boboli's folklore-inspired fields of tulips and poppies, all paired with an understated, smoky gray -- to lux, elegant colors and fabrics, like Berlingot's velvet ribbons and faux fur, Smash's signature lush style, and carefully paired prints and patterns at Lofff.
Girls footwear trends reflected this eclectic fusion of rich elegance and whimsical styles, as well. Cowboy boots dressed up in shiny, sparkly finishes graced several fall 2013 collections, such as Little Mass
, while the boot trend continued with tough, urban-edgy looks from Isobella & Chloe
