Playtime Paris
July 4 to 6 


Autumn, winter, spring, summer, … just as regular as the rhythm of the seasons, the carrousel of trends never stops turning.
With Summer 2016 right around the corner, Playtime Paris will present its 18th edition July 4 – 6, with the overall theme of ‘Movement’. Beyond the ballet of the collections, it’s all about the energizing beat of renewal around which the main professional event of your summer is being organized.
470 brands: the largest children’s and maternity selection in europe!
Our trade fair just keeps growing, and we’re optimizing its space to better address the double goal we’ve set ourselves: offe- ring each brand a window onto the world and presenting visitors with the most complete and stimulating selection possible.
With collections from 39 countries to discover, wandering through the aisles of the fair can sometimes feel like a veritable world tour: Europe, United States, South Korea, Japan, India, Singapore, Columbia…who knows where the next stand will transport you? What’s sure is that you will go from surprise to surprise. For those who are too impatient, or just curious, we can already share some hints for the Spring-Summer 2016 season:
Cocolico will present a new collection, created in collaboration with children’s books illustrator and author Benjamin Lacombe. The brand will also take advantage of the event to unveil its new virtual mirror, which is sure to revolutionize the act of trying on clothes at a store.
Braveling, the stockings and leggings brand from London, will present its new line of accessories, including caps and socks that will keep you warm from head to toe.
The underwear line Germaine des prés also wants to dress your nights, with its “night and day” capsule collec- tion for young girls aged 12 – 18 years old that will include underwear, obviously, but also matching shorts, tunics and night shirts.
Awarded the Milk ‘Must-Have’ prize at the last Playtime Paris, Ine De Haes will be back with a new, multi-cultural project. Inspired by the short film ‘Ferfereh’ by Maryam K. Hedayat, the Belgian designer joined forces with the direc- tor and children’s book illustrator Fatinha Ramos to create a children’s book that will round off her new collection.
In collaboration with Marlon Richards (son of the Rolling Stones drummer), No added sugar will bring a royal rock spirit to its collection. Completely over the top, esoteric or provocative prints will be used for boys’ T-shirts and sweatshirts.
