CPH Kids, the Danish fashion fair, opened this year with a catwalk show of the main exhibitors. This summer’s styles have seen little divergence from the now popular ‘Scandinavian chic’, but have portrayed the Scandinavian’s amazing illustrative designs. Labels such as Soft Gallery, New Generals and Gro showed their strengths both with graphic images as well as silhouettes.
There is a feeling for a looser baggier silhouette with oversized tops and looser cut trousers. For girls dresses are often fitted or gathered at the waist and then allowed to flare out with volume skirts, for boys, denim blazer jackets make a return alongside crop slimmer bomber styles.
As in other fashion trade fairs there is a smattering of neon used for accessories and details but it is a little less here than at Pitti Bimbo or Bubble London.Colour is still strong otherwise but in shades of orange, sugar pink, grass green, yellow and electric blue as the main tones. Black and white are always a popular combination for Scandinavian brands too in the kids market, the parents here don’t seem to find it as intimidating as some in the UK would.
Prints are always split between graphic and Liberty style florals here. It is interesting to see Christina Rohde’s SS13 collection which retains the florals for buyers who love them, but also includes graphic prints in strong colours over cotton loose tops and skirts.
Kids are precious.
Love the ferris wheel as toy storage! Fun and handy.

Here’s a little DIY to work on with the kids over the weekend. Since Halloween’s coming up, why not get into the spirit by making little cardboard playhouses and creating your own trick-or-treat bags? The best part is, it can keep you going all weekend and for a couple of weekends to come…there will always be things to add on!
