Bellerose Kids becomes artsy!


Inspired by Frida Kahlo’s striking paintings, the naive beauty of Mexican folklore and the rebellious style of Californian bikers, Bellerose’s new collections are incredibly cosy, stylish and amazingly colourful!
The focus lies on traditional motifs, relaxed shapes and contrasting textures – as well as a bright prints inspired by tachist paintings, giving them a blurry and abstract feel, while some motifs look slightly faded or lived-in.
A coloured denim jacquard gives the illusion of an animal print, while jeans are coated to evoke the bikers’ love for leather.
The girls’ collection emphasize on ease, luminous tones and unusual fabric combinations. Playful skulls appear on tops and sweatshirts.
Lightness and volume are important, from a long ruffled skirt in textured cotton to a roomy Mexican-inspired peasant blouse, referencing Kahlo’s personal wardrobe.
For the boys’ collections, the emphasis is on beautifully made separates, which can be worn in many contexts, adding a slight twist to keep wardrobe staples fresh and playful, expressing a desire for structure, simplicity and style, offering substantial and easy pieces for everyday wear.
