FIMI SS12: New Discoveries

Junior seeks out a whole host of exciting new childrenswear labels for Spring Summer 2012

The 'new designer' area at FIMI always proves to be the most interesting and lively, with the labels eager to share their new collections. The whole fair appeared sleeker and brighter than last season with trendy, eco-decor provided in the shape of cardboard benches and trees. Children's interior design company, Gegant, complimented the cardboard finery with funky beanbag chairs and stools in a variety of abstract animal shapes. FIMI, the largest childrenswear tradeshow in Spain, is certainly upping it's design game to compete with the vast array showing all over Europe at present and over the coming weeks.

From pretty, tiny floral print, bloomer bottomed dungarees at Alma Llenas to all-in-ones with retro cartoon designs at Memory Ferrandiz, it was babywear that stole the show for Spring Summer 2012. Understated was the name of the game, with beautifully designed Pima cotton pieces at Petit Oh, knit dungarees from Alma Llenas and a great selection of coloured babywear at Limo Basics. Mile Baby presented a collection for the first time, drawing plenty of attention thanks to the gorgeous Peter Pan collar, bow tie waist and waistcoat details. Beautifully presented with retro-style tea cups and miniature bird peg decorations - our favourite stand.

We had spotted Spanish girlswear label, Nurietta, at Bubble a couple of weeks ago and were pleased to see it beautifully displayed at FIMI. Gorgeous colour combinations of peachy coral and brilliant aqua over drop waist dresses with box pleat skirts and oversized bow decoration, made sure that the stand was constantly buzzing with press and buyers alike. Fina Ejerique showed a collection in a similar style, with some gorgeous caramel coloured, tailored looks. We loved the full circle skirts, drop waist details and scalloped edging. Not finding any exciting new boyswear labels was a little disappointing,  although we did enjoy the new season boyswear that featured in the Tumble 'n' Dry catwalk show.

Accessory wise, Numero Dos had the most eye catching shoes made with soft leather, sued and patent detail and the occasional gingham ribbon. We spotted some eye-catching belts at Papalote; made from rubber and can be trimmed to the desired size. Practial and fun, in a wide range of funky colours. There was a definite increase in the amount of hair accessory stands. Our favourite was Siena; with a variety of gorgeous, on-trend decorative pieces.

But do you definitely think that you can get away with adding some quite pictures and not really say anything? aparelhos auditivos
