Pitti Bimbo Florence – 23/25 June


With 479 collections expected, 254 of which from abroad (50% of the total), over 6,700 buyers and a total of just under 10,000 visitors at the last summer edition, Pitti Immagine Bimbo is the most important international fashion rendezvous for kids and teenagers. 
Held from 23 to 25 June 2016 at the Fortezza da Basso in Florence, Pitti Bimbo is the only fair in the world that presents a complete overview of the universe of children’s fashion and is an extraordinary hothouse for lifestyle trends that has made a focus on research its key element. 
From the blend of creativity and experimentation of the brands in KidzFIZZ, to the contemporary lifestyle of the collections in Apartment, from the classic-elegance of the big names in Pitti Bimbo, to the more established international brands, to the fashion designers “for adults” presenting their line for kids.  Plus, the eco–fair trade labels of EcoEthic, the sportswear of Sport Generation and the urban atmospheres of SuperStreet, all the way to the design accessories for the littlest set. 
All of this is presented within a constantly evolving geography that greets visitors in a unique atmosphere, with new areas created to offer moments that can be dedicated to doing business but which are also pleasurable and entertaining, so that everyone can keep up-to-date, dialogue and have a look around.
This coming June, with the theme Pitti Lucky Numbers, Pitti Immagine is betting on numbers: on their aesthetic, graphic and symbolic qualities. 
No, we will not be looking at numbers as indices of quantity but at the beauty of the signs they make.  Right or wrong numbers, exact figures or estimates, we can end up being number one or two or zero. 
Numbers are always secretly in and around our lives and the Fortezza da Basso will be happily invaded by numbers, even in kids’ sizes.  A project designed by Oliviero Baldini.
Here are some of the highlights of this edition. The star projects include:
Edgardo Osorio, Founder & Creative Director of Aquazzura, chooses Pitti Bimbo to launch his first children’s collection, Aquazzura Mini. The first Spring/Summer 2017 collection represents the essence of Aquazzura, which evokes a sense of playful imagination through colour and unique textures.
A big style return to Pitti Bimbo for the C.W.F group with brands like Little Marc Jacobs and with the launch of the total look for children designed by Zadig & Voltaire.
The prestigious return to Pitti Bimbo of the Florentine brand Patrizia Pepe;
Minna Parikka, a cutting edge Scandinavian brand, will be attending Pitti Bimbo for the first time bringing its style and spring-summer 2017 collection;
