CPH Kids opened this year with a catwalk show of the main exhibitors which was open to anyone who happened to be there on day one and proved hugely popular.
This summer's styles have seen little divergence from the now popular Scandinavian chic but have served to remind me how good the Scandinavian's are at illustrative and graphic designs with labels such as Soft Gallery, New Generals and Gro as strong on graphic images as shape and fabric.
There is a feeling for a looser baggier silhouette with oversized tops and looser cut trousers. For girls dresses are often fitted or gathered at the waist and then allowed to flare out with volume skirts, for boys, denim blazer jackets make a return alongside crop slimmer bomber styles.
As in other fashion trade fairs there is a smattering of neon used for accessories and details but it is a little less here than at Pitti Bimbo or Bubble London.Colour is still strong otherwise but in shades of orange, sugar pink, grass green, yellow and electric blue as the main tones. Black and white are always a popular combination for Scandinavian brands too in the kids market, the parents here don't seem to find it as intimidating as some in the UK would.
Prints are always split between graphic and Liberty style florals here. It is interesting to see Christina Rohde's SS13 collection which retains the florals for buyers who love them, but also includes graphic prints in strong colours over cotton loose tops and skirts.
