IN PARTNERSHIP: It’s been a tough year for everyone, but with the spring comes a time for new beginnings, new life and fresh hope and this is reflected in the latest lines from the leading fashion labels. The Spring/Summer ’21 catwalks were full of vivid hues and exciting prints taking their cues from nature and these designs have carried through to the mini-me collections from the likes of Versace, Balenciaga and Stella McCartney.
Bright colours are apparent throughout this season’s pieces with Versace reflecting their Mediterranean heritage with azure blues and marine greens joining their classic old-world heraldry and patterns. Ralph Lauren have painted their preppy look with a kaleidoscope of bold dyes and Balenciaga take it one step further with a neon palette highlighting their high-end athleisure looks.
Deciding that now is not the time to be taking things too seriously, many labels have turned to humour and sassy motifs to lighten the mood with their latest lines. Gucci is keeping it real with their tongue-in-cheek ‘FAKE’ collection and both Fendi and Stella McCartney carry care-free cartoon elements across their garments.
Stiff, formal fashion has also made way for more comfy and casual silhouettes as we all – kids included – have spent more time indoors this year. Luxurious loungewear doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere soon and everyone from Balmain to Givenchy have given us their take on that elevated work-it-from-home look.
While the spring season hasn’t even officially begun, Childsplay Clothing is already ahead of the curve, looking to summer with exclusive styles set to drop soon.
According to Brand Director, Ricky Bassi, Childsplay Clothing is consistently looking ahead to ensure they have the most up-to-date luxury labels for your little ones. “We’ve got some really exciting collaborations lined-up including the first children’s lines from a couple of really famous brands,” he said.
To ensure your child’s wardrobe is spring-ready, we’ve curated a selection of hero buys from this season’s pieces. To explore the whole collection visit childsplayclothing.com.
