Pitti Bimbo: The Place to Be
503 collections expected, 280 of which from abroad, and more than 10,000 visitors: these are the figures for Pitti Immagine Bimbo 84.
Held from 19 to 21 January 2017 at the Fortezza da Basso in Florence, Pitti Bimbo is the most important international fair, in terms of quality and research, dedicated to children’s fashion.
The reference platform for all the big international brands and, at the same time, an extraordinary incubator of trends that is once again investing in research and across-the-board proposals.
The show is bubbling with big news… KidzFIZZ (Pitti Bimbo’s concept laboratory) will have its second edition, with brands such as ABC123me, Anne Kurris, Popupshop, Wolf & Rita… while The Nest (niche brands with a high creative content) and Fancy Room (accessories, special design and technology products, for fun, curious lifestyles) will launch for the first time!
Putting the spotlight on small independent brands from around the world, THE NEST will present an exclusive selection, that includes Cherry Papaya Kids, Garbo&Friends, Girls Talk To Boys, picked in collaboration with the Berlin-based store and concept lab Little Pop Up. “We wanted to favor the heart: we wanted every label, every artisan, or every designer involved to stand out for the passion and love they put into their jobs. Thus The Nest was conceived: brands with unique stories, of great humanity, in an extremely energetic atmosphere!” says Dimitra Zavakou, owner of Little Pop Up.
In the new FANCY ROOM extreme creativity is the protagonist: accessories, furnishing elements, games, pocket technology, useful and useless, curious and irresistible objects, which have been lined up in order to make their debut in concept stores all over the world. Brands showing at Fancy Room are Design Letters, Lapin & Me, Noé & Zoë among others.
And it’s not over: Pitti Bimbo teamed up with Bologna Children’s Book Fair, bringing to life The Extraordinary Library, a very special bookstore and a unique occasion for buyers: a selection of small publishing houses par excellence from all over the world will be showcased in the Medici Pavilion with their 100 books for children.
Once again the Apartment will be the protagonist, thank to sophisticated contemporary brands such as The Small Gatsby, Pèro or Caramel Baby & Child… plus special projects (Monnalisa premieres a special collection of co-branded furnishing accessories with Savio Firmino), launches (Elisabetta Franchi debuts “La Mia Bambina”, the brand’s first collection for little girls) and returns (Blauer, Bellerose)… the list seems endless.
And obviously we will be there, featuring our new Volume 44 together with the new born kid’s wear Living!
We can’t wait to rock Florence!
