The children’s fashion trade show welcomes buyers from 42 countries with designs from 270 brands for autumn-winter 2016/17.

 

Did somebody say, “cold?”  At FIMI, the International Children’s Fashion Trade Show held in Madrid from January 22-24 Spanish brands sought to confront inclement winter weather with the brightest colors, the warmest materials, and the softest textures.  Comfort and fantasy were apparent elements that shined through the collections, which included sporty everyday outfits and casual chic looks for more important occasions.  Many of these formal designs combine technical, but functional fabrics with the best in handcrafted know-how.

Street style
The most versatile and all-purpose pieces are perfect for playing outdoors and unleash with them a wave of color that encompasses the faded wash looks by Bóboli, the neon flourishes by Losan, and the graphic prints of Rosalita Señoritas and Babybol.
Conguitos also showcased very casual designs prominently featuring greens, greys and sandy hues that comprise a total look, flecked with pops of bling on select items and shoes.
Losan breathes new life into a miniature version of the perfect jacket with an elaborate plush animal print, while Oh! Soleil gives this wardrobe essential a boho inflection. The brands Villalobos + Nieves Álvarez and Teckel Green respectively presented stylish pieces in perforated leather and neoprene for little fashionistas. 
Oca Loca, Lea Lelo and Xti Kids offer flashy footwear accented with a metallic glint for next autumn/winter.

At FIMI we also saw the best options for getting the dress code just right for special occasions. High-quality handcrafted fabrics set apart the classic styles of brands like Aruca, with their meticulous and iconic honeycomb smocking; Dolce Petit and its semi-formal looks; or Kobez, with its delicate brocade, cambric and plumetis.
La Ormiga, Foque and Elisa Menuts deliver dapper designs in suede, tweed and check prints inspired by styles typically associated with college prep schools.
Other fine examples of classic style include Tartaleta’s exclusive printed patterns and the Romantic-era powder pinks and greys from Babylis and José Varón.
Ancar, Fina Ejerique and Kiddy Mini Model boldly use black in their creations, while Bimbalina dare to dress little “ladies in red.”
Barcarola modernizes the powerful pairing of black and white in exclusive and elegant designs.  For girls, the brand proposes neoprene embroidered in wool with jewel zippers; for boys, jacquard blazers with windbreakers.
Leon Shoes also takes on this basic color combination in their luxurious baby shoes that have taken Harrods by storm.
Kauli, Teté & Martina and José Varón suggest a style for girls next fall in the form of bundling up in fabulous faux fur. This trend also extends to the collars and cuffs that adorn items by Barcarola, Bóboli, Pilar Batanero and Foque, in addition to Oca Loca’s footwear.
 
The next event that brings together the best in Spanish kidswear takes place June 24-26 in Madrid, where FIMI will be showcasing refreshing designs for spring-summer 2017.
