Kleine Fabriek winter 2013, Anne-Claire Petit Accessories

It was a suitably chilly setting for the 16th edition of Kleine Fabriek childrenswear tradeshow, held twice yearly in Amsterdam. Junior attended the show to report on the trends and stands for the upcoming autumn winter 2013-14 season.

Kleine Fabriek is always an excellent place to discover new fashion and homewear labels as well as to see what our favourites have created. Quite fittingly, the fair's motto is to 'think big about small fashion'. You can read more about the labels we discovered in our blog about the fair's stands

Bright and bold homewear

The giant lobsters you can see hanging about in the image above are a good indicator of the style of homewear discovered at the fair. This particular pair are designed by Junior favourite, Anne-Claire Petit Accessories. They were just one of a bevy of crochet dogs, toadstools and frogs, guaranteed to bring a splash of colour to any grey winter day. 

Tartan check bedding at Room Seven and neon splashes of colour on bedding at Koeka all point to a colourful winter season for the home. Small, vintage detail can still be found, but next season seems to be more about making a colourful statement. 

Animal prints

You may have thought you had seen the last of the owl, but this feathered fellow is back with a vengeance for next season at lots of fashion labels. He is joined by other bird friends, seen over clothing at labels including Moi, as well as foxes, at Room Seven and Iglo, and bears. 

Purple and grey

The colour palette on lots of the stands was quite subtle. Dusty purple and grey was spotted over capes and skirts at Derhy Kids and the entire collection at Mijn. Mijn showed an elegant collection for boys and girls with crushed velvet blazers, jackets featuring elbow patches and dress coats. 

Sixties style 

There were a few silhouettes and shades of colour that gave more than a nod to the swinging sixties decade. Noppies showed a green shift dress, one of the most popular shapes at the show. Rails of pleated mini skirts in burnt oranges and plenty of monochrome at Supertrash Girls

Star print

It's set to be a starry winter with the pointy print popping up everywhere from jeans at Tommy Hilfiger to leggings at No Tomatoes and over sweet suede shoes at MAÁ.

Mustard yellow

Not such a new trend, but worth mentioning as this colour was everywhere - especially in boyswear. Knitwear at Tommy Hilfiger, block colour cardigans at Unnk - seen with pale blue Peter Pan collar, fitted sweatpants at Grant Garcon for boys with black rivet detail on the pockets and teamed with a large brogue print T-shirt

We also spotted plenty of... * furry pom poms on satchels * blue and orange colour combos for boys * caped coats * metallic prints * plenty of puffa jackets * furry longline gilets * leopard print shoes at MAÁ * skull prints * fabulous domino print tops and leggings at Indikidual * collarless jackets * quilted shorts
