Pitti Bimbo 89

Pitti Bimbo 89’s theme is “Special Click”- that moment of spark, the catalyst to success, the X factor.

There’s big changes in location to KidzFIZZ, ACTIVELAB, The Nest, EcoEthic and Kid’s Evolution… with all five areas relocating to the top level of The Main Pavilion under the new project THE KIDS LAB – “A platform for all expression of experimental kidswear” says Pitti. It will be interesting to see how the new space will work for both exhibitors and buyers.

560 exhibitors, including Andorine, Angulus, Barn of Monkeys, Belle Chiara, Blauer, Carbon Soldier, CarlijnQ, Dolce & Gabbana, Donsje, Efvva, Gioseppo Kids, Guess Kids, Infantium Victoria, KiSSe, Liilu, Loud Apparel, Maison Mangostan, Molo, Mumofsix, Ocra, Paade Mode, Péro, Sarabanda, Simonetta, Sometime Soon, Wolf & Rita, Woolrich Kid amongst others, will showcase their SS20 collections.

Also new is Emporio Armani junior who will be presenting their collection for the first time at the show. 

The Italian super star of kidswear for over 50 years Monnalisa are set to produce another unmissable runway event on Thursday 20th June.

Make sure to check out the KID’S Evolution area – fashion from grown up collections transformed to Mini Me pieces. The Apartment sees some wonderful new editions; not to be missed is the colourful and creative collection from Tia Cibani Kids, the Wabi-sabi style intricate collection by Anja Schwerbrock, and the bold bright fashion led style of The Middle Daughter.

The Pirouette One to Watch Awards celebrate the cherished and beloved, as well as the new with a slight change to the awards from previous years. One to Watch ‘Label’ (eligible to young labels) and One to Watch ‘Collection’ (eligible to established labels – fashion, toys, design, accessories). Lapin and Me’s woodland doll receives a gilded makeover transforming into “CHARMY” the much covetable SS20 One to Watch Award.
