Watch the girlswear catwalk finale of the Monnalisa autumn winter 2014 kids' fashion collection, shown at the awesome Museo di Palazzo Vecchio, Florence
Italian designer childrenswear label, Monnalisa, showed it's autumn winter collection on the grandest catwalk at Pitti Bimbo, last week. Held at the Museo di Palazzo Vecchio, the show took place during the childrenswear trade show which also takes place in Florence.
There are five lines that make up the Monnalisa brand. Creative Director, Barbara Bertocci explains: "MonnalisaBebè is dedicated to the very young, Monnalisa is our core age two to 12 year range, Jakioo is trendier and has been conceived more for teenagers, Ny&Lon interprets the everyday sporty chic. Then for special occasions, there is Monnalisa Chic. We also have the newborn Couture line and, last but certainly not least, Hitch-Hiker: our brand for boys."
All five lines were shown on the catwalk, after a beautiful performance from a host of ballet dancers. As always, there is a fabulous selection of dresses, which seem to be inspired by the ballet theme, presented in shades of pink and layers of tulle. Monochrome dresses, with long sleeves and drop waists were reminiscent of 1920s styles - just add a cloche hat. Red dresses are also key for the season as well as the wider, circle mid calf length skirt. A trend we have seen carry over from womenswear is the maxi sheer-layered skirt.
