7 biggest trends of Summer 2017

The catwalk is hitting the high street – and the playground! From all-over prints to sportswear, boho and nautical themes, all the biggest trends for Spring-Summer 2017 are now available in junior versions. An in-depth look.

Nautical theme

A classic in childrenswear ever since the 19th century and a staple of old-timey family portraits, the nautical look is still going strong in all its forms. In addition to the perennial sailor top, the sailor collar is making a comeback along with prints of anchors and starfish splashed across t-shirts and jackets. From the turquoise waters of the Galapagos Islands to the depths of the Atlantic... With every shade of blue in the mix, you won't be able to resist taking a dip.

Sporty chic

An array of sportswear is on trend this season, from the preppy polo shirt to the cocoon sweatshirt – not to mention multicoloured sneakers. Fashion houses have set the trend: cuts are to allow freedom of movement while fabrics should be comfortable and suitable for the great outdoors. To keep warm, just slip on one of this season's star jackets: the rockabilly bomber or the baseball teddy. Stylish girls can play the majorette with a military-style jacket or recreate the rollergirl look with a skater skirt or brightly coloured lamé shorts.

Neon allure

Fluorescent yellow is a nod to the age-old smiley, a childhood memory for parents and a hallmark of conversation in the digital age… and so much more! Today, it's the new BFF in children's wardrobes, even the most stylish. It can inject personality into otherwise conventional outfits, adding instant boldness and fun to t-shirts, trousers, dresses and gilets. It can also be used as a background for deliciously retro ‘80s prints. Brilliant.

Patch mania

In an enthusiastic “yes” to the craze that started a few months ago, patches are now everywhere. Cotton or denim, shirt or trousers, big or small... The patch has rekindled the one-upmanship of the 1990s and refuses to go it alone. Birds, flowers, palm trees, letters, shapes, even French fries... There’s only one rule: have fun! It's especially effective on dark blue jeans or a basic t-shirt. The patch changes everything, and that’s a fact.

Strong impressions

Highly stylised and rich in storytelling, inspired by the 1930s and the ‘70s alike, the all-over print suits all shapes and sizes and works with every style. Flowers might be the queen of patterns (especially for girls), but this season they’re sharing their crown with hearts, fruit (preferably exotic), animals (rabbits, sharks, dinosaurs...), fun objects (cars, balloons and bikes...), musical instruments... Even XXL ice cream cones are making an appearance!

Woodstock revival

Pastel shades, delicate frills, romantic flowers and broderie anglaise: like its grown-up equivalent, children's fashion this spring is a celebration of boho style. What could be better to brighten up a garden party or a stroll in a sunny meadow than a long skirt and a tunic with an intricate design? Lace is a must. No need to wait for a special occasion to wear it any more, as now it's available in pink and blue as well as white. The romantic hippy look just got a refresh.

All that glitters

Glitter always makes a statement, while shimmer is an appealing and softer alternative. Inspired by sci-fi and disco, shimmer adds a snazzy touch to children's wardrobes with a palette of gold, silver, green and purple. The head-to-toe look might be (too) daring, but you can always sprinkle an outfit with a bit of sparkle here and there: a skirt, a jacket, a top, a mini-bag or even sneakers... Dazzling chic and wow factor guaranteed!
