Here's my take on trends:
- Purple remains a hot color.
- Faux fur trim turns the ordinary into the extraoridnary.
- Get ready to be mad for plaid!
As I toured up and down the aisles. These were a few standouts I spotted along the way:
One Kid--They've always made quality coats--loved to see the brand heading fashion-forward.
Oilily-The name Oilily has been sold back to Willem Olsthoorn (after a messy private equity deal) and the brand is poised for a colorful comeback.
Lassig-Moms are already keen on the kiddie packs for school lunch. I was craving the quilted diaper bag and I adored the BellyBand--printed sashes to wear over your bump.
J.A.C.H.S.--Wonderful (and affordable) shirts for boys and girls made from funky plaids.
Go Gently--Green continues to be hot, but it's not enough to just use organic cotton. This new brand combines chic with consciousness.
