Spring summer fashion for kids is where it’s at this month, and this season we’ve noticed our favourite brands are stepping up efforts to improve sustainability when it comes to the creation of their collections and the workforce they employ.
It’s great to see so many brands creating quality, everyday pieces that can be worn again and again, and handed down through generations. Many are embracing slow fashion, and adopting traditional handicrafts, such as embroidery and crochet when it comes to occasionwear for those really special items.
Kidswear brands are looking to their home countries for inspiration, a trend that’s arisen out of spending more time in our own back gardens, villages, towns and cities. Whether it’s the bustling city or the burgeoning countryside, we’ve all realised there are lots to explore right where we are. And the result? A burst of colour that embraces nature and imagination – think floral prints, patchwork and colour blocking in anticipation of the sunny days to come, as well encapsulating those beautiful pastel colours so often associated with spring and Easter – and not forgetting the natural colours of the earth. It’s the most wonderful time of year, after all!
