CIFF Kids Trade Show
Ciff Kids Trade show takes place at Forum in the heart of Copenhagen, Denmark and is the largest kids fashion and lifestyle show in Northern Europe. Showcasing top Scandinavian and International brands in an informal and a comfortable atmosphere you will leave Ciff Kids totally inspired.
Scandinavians—and especially the Danes—are so highly regarded when it comes to fashion, lifestyle, furniture and food. Masters of combining function with a minimalist aesthetic, the Scandinavian tradition demands quality as well as sustainability in design.
The most recent show drew 300 brands, both established and emerging. Here are five of our favorites:
It is always lovely to catch up with Christina. The Danish designer is a pioneer in Scandinavian childrenswear, producing on-trend and sophisticated girls’ clothing. Her daughter Olivia is a talented photographer and shoots the look books for the brand in addition to creating fashion films for each collection. The Aw17 collection entitled ‘The Couch Potato’ features vintage looks a plethora of beautiful and complementary patterns.
Spanish brand KiSSe showed their first collection this February at Ciff. Their bold illustrations originate from the drawings of designer Christina Altuna’s children which are inspired by stories created by Christina’s husband and their father, Danish writer Jens Peter Kai Jensen. With strong links to both Denmark and the Iberian Peninsula, where production is located, the brand pays close attention to the smaller details like the sweet buttons made from olive tree branches.
Les Coyotes de Paris is a Dutch label designing luxury classics and iconic styles for girls 6-16 years. For Aw17 the New Romantics collection includes timeless classics made from rich materials, clothing that allows your daughter’s personality to shine through.
Wawa was founded by Johanna Topooco, whose Swedish and Bolivian heritage takes center stage in her designs. The name Wawa means ‘Child’ in Aymara, a language indigenous to Bolivia and Peru. The inspiration for the collections derive from the designer’s father’s love of nature and the environment yet incorporate clean cut Scandinavian styles. Wawa is a sustainable brand with core values of creating long-lasting products for the new generations.
Founded in 2007 the Danish brand celebrates its 10th Anniversary this year. To celebrate, Soft Gallery exhibited at CIFF the art works of several artists they collaborated with over the years.
