A new tribe … Mood Board by Beatrice Brandini

It opened today at the Fortezza da Basso the eighty-first edition of Pitti Bimbo, devoted to the collections of the upcoming Spring / Summer 2016.

I have already amply expressed my passion for this trade show (for all those Pitti), because it’s like entering a “happy island”. A dimension where colors, embroidery, fabrics, applications, prints, patterns, “games and magic” kidnap you …, making you forget, even for a few moments, everything is wrong …

Here following four main themes that I developed for Spring / Summer 2016, among the many suggestions gathered at the fair:

44 mood 1

Fun_Navy_Sea, Mood by Beatrice Brandini. Marine theme in which the protagonists are all shades of blue. But also lines and nautical decorative elements. But it is an interpretation of the sea less obvious and more avant-garde, though a bit nostalgic

45 mood 2

Witty! Mood by Beatrice Brandini. Main words: fun, game, fantasy. But also color,  color, color. Animals, geometric designs, cartoons and patterns decorate the clothing. Daring combinations, bon ton with sportswear, wide and narrow, neutral and psychedelic.

46 mood 3

Eco_Tenderness, Mood by Beatrice Brandini. Tenderness but also awareness. You can do fashion trying not to harm the eco system. Shapes and colors “ancient”, natural fabrics, rough. neutral colors

A new tribe, Mood by Beatrice Brandini. The law of chaos, in life, in the family (extended and multiethnic), in fashion. Simple forms embellished with many fantasies, prints, jacquard, color. A mix of good and “bad” taste, the important thing is to surprise, the important thing is to have fun.

Péro, one of my favorite brands …I was struck from the first time I noticed it, continues to be a confirmation, but I could also say, continues to be a poem. Wrinkled dresses with embroidery and crochet inserts, wonderful


Péro, also the stand is always great




Mini Melissa, irresistible!

Douuod Kids concept 360 *, consistent and interesting.


Douuod Kids, almost monochromatic color palette, to avoid mistakes and be really elegant

58   59

Stella Jean, other masterpieces of elegance. It is not easy to be chic using contamination almost folkloric, Stella instead succeeds perfectly. It’s a beautiful collection, as always


Stella Jean

Always remember that CHILDREN WE LOOK …..

Good life to all!
