From video games to skateboarding and BMX, what we’re seeing now is a return to the 1970s with a number of decidedly fun backto-school pieces perfect for the playground. We love the games icon all-over-print polo-shirt and the Rubik’s Cube-design sweater for the boys, whilst the girls’ collection has a very jovial, musical feel, from sequins and copper-like button details on velvet to the iridescent bow on the waistband of a pair of Milano trousers, we’re talking chic, with an attitude to match!
A different vibe, a different wardrobe. Mix & match materials and prints to create smart looks that offer a quirky take on traditional chic. Take a bold approach, with boys’ T-shirts featuring faces and novelty silkscreen-print designs that can be combined with the traditional Milano suit jacket and a classic pair of cords. Girls who like to shine will no doubt love gold pleats on a panne velvet dress or dyed lurex thread on a chequered blouse – a whole host of combinations and a fine finish. No more complexes, jeans with a corduroy sideband is the new ‘modern classic’.
Nature and fashion – two worlds that go perfectly hand-in-hand and that both appeal to kids, providing multiple sources of inspiration ranging from the primitive to the downright cosy, complete with subtle colours and soft, comfortable materials. From jacquard knits on floral backgrounds to all-over print dresses, girls love the authenticity of wearing mottled neoprene sweaters with ‘nature’ emblazoned across the front, not to mention casual detail and poetic style. The emphasis with the boys’ collection, however, is very much on exploration, with backgrounds of land or sea and camouflage on a jacquard knit for a sweater or hat and snood set that offers subtle balance of colours and a casual look.
