The Children’s Fashion from Spain runway spectacular at Pitti Bimbo 87 was highly anticipated as usual and the SS19 collections were nothing short of a fiesta on rocket fuel. The show evoked the lush tropical paradise of the Caribbean where time slows down, Latin music pours out onto the streets from brightly coloured colonial mansions, and locals and tourists alike delight in ocean breezes and technicolour sunsets. Fittingly, garments were brought to life in deep turquoise, lusty fuchsia, and soothing earth tones in flowing silhouettes of cotton, linen, and viscose.

The debút collection from Abel & Lula features top-quality fabrics, refined patterns and clean lines with detailed embellishments on accessories lending a touch of fantasy.

Amaya fashion for kids presented Ceremonia for SS19, building upon their signature romantic retro vibe, updated with fresh cuts, cinched waistlines, flowing satin, and jacquard prints. The collection is elevated by Made in Spain finishes.

Boboli’s joyful palette of primary colours combine with figurative and floral prints with frills, open shoulders, and paper bad waistlines for a relaxed tropical look with oversized sweatshirts, Bermuda shorts, and plush pieces with faded or dyed finishes.

Foque’s sailor-inspired collection is an attractive blend of daring and original colours—navy, optical white, neon coral, and denim with elegant silhouettes contrasting with sporty pieces in unexpected combinations of poplin, Swiss dot, and linen.

Mayoral delights with the Amsterdam collection in brilliant colours ranging from orchid pink to pristine yellow in modern cuts that retain a certain romanticism. For the boys, a minimalist palette of white flecked with blue contrasts with bold botanical prints that evoke a colonial Cuban sensibility with Bermuda shorts and laid back tops.
