Spring 2022 celebrates the energy and self-expression of kids, through an exploration in colour, print and style. The collection features bold and playful designs inspired by 50s and 60s Americana with an injection of Western details and rock’n’roll. Continuing the brand’s mission to run its business with greater sensitivity to the planet, more responsible materials have been integrated into this collection than before, such as organic cotton, recycled yarns and ECONYL® regenerated nylon.
Prints inspired by 50s Americana come into play. For boys, a canyon print rooted in road trip adventures and desert landscapes can be found as an all-over print on a reversible nylon bomber jacket and swim shorts, or as placed embroideries on an organic cotton hoodie. A sketched version of the canyon print on a classic T-shirt adds a playful edge to the brand’s new ampersand icon. A hint of on-the- road 50s diner nostalgia pops through snack graphics – think sundaes, pancakes, brownies – featured on T-shirts and sweatshirts.
Iconic Americana inspires a bandana print, both as an all-over on a reversible bomber jacket padded with REPREVE® and as an artwork adorning a half-zip woven sweatshirt. Rock’n’roll vibes kick in with an abstract zebra print for girls found on a voluminous organic cotton dress – special-occasion-ready – or a more relaxed look, such as a hoodie. Florals and checks are key: a bronze block check print borrows from Americana and amps up seasonal pieces throughout the collection, while floral prints bring spring ease. A woven wrap-over top with a matching skirt unite in a multicoloured floral all-over print.
Denim – a core part of the collection – is reworked with Western details and in both light and bright washes for spring. The Wave denim jeans, a seasonal girls’ style, feature a high-waist and exaggerated leg: a bold interpretation of a Western silhouette. Lightness flows through a light denim shirt for boys and the Dean denim jeans in a new grey wash.
Tailoring and dressed-up styles define this season’s formal wear. Boys’ suiting, such as the light blue cotton herringbone suit with a bandana print lining, pairs with a white jacquard shirt: a new take on a classic look. Dresses, skirts and tops in soft and fluid shapes, like a subtle floral dress or a white broderie anglaise dress with long statement sleeves, are feminine views on special-occasion dressing.
Swimwear essentials are full of fun and unexpected details and focus on responsible materials. Boys’ recycled swim shorts in signature colours like night blue and red feature the magic print: they reveal a hidden print when submerged in water. Alongside swimsuits, a girls’ reversible bikini made from ECONYL® surprises in a bold block check print on one side and floral print on the other.
Outerwear explores functionality in unique ways with reversible prints, reflective details and new interpretations of in-between jackets, like a girls’ floral patchwork jacket made from a cotton-viscose fibre blend.
Spring 2022 offers a playful and expressive take on everyday wear and special occasion pieces, elevated by the energy of joyful details.
