River Island’s kidswear and mini ranges are inspired by nostalgic, breezy summer days this season, focusing on basics with fashion forward updates in pops of colour!
The Kidswear (3‐12yrs) and River Island Mini (0-5yrs) SS16 ranges continues to reference the adult mainline collections. An array of style‐led pieces for newborns to young teenagers, the collection embodies the new season trends with a River Island twist.
Retro‐inspired ETIENNE is heartland River Island, focusing on casual styles with laidback cool, for the effortless little girl. Delicate embroidery is merged with dark ditsy prints for a soft bohemian 70’s influence, with a key colour palette of neutral creams, toffees and washed out blacks with highlights of tangerine alongside zesty yellow for Spring/Summer. Home of denim for the season, authentic blues and relaxed washes play a key role as a wardrobe basic. Whilst easy to wear classic a-‐line dresses, retro tees, utility shirt dresses and smock tops bring this relaxed yet utilitarian look together.
SEA, a spectrum of blues, merges the colour of the season with technical updates in fabrics and print for a casual mood. Digital landscapes are boldly printed in strong colours with snappy highlights of newness from foil prints. The naval theme is fused with a sporty influence, whilst bleached out denim, saturated mid washes and punchy buzzy blue, make up the key denim offering for the season. Footwear takes on a smarter approach with tassel loafers and weave detailing on brogues in pastel shades and neutrals. Shades of indigo are elevated with highlights of zingy orange and yellow, a must‐have for those bang on trend boys.
Holiday-esque CUBA showcases a distinct urban twist this season, fusing the fun Havana vibe with wearable styles. Traditional hibiscus prints are juxtaposed with textured fabrics for a tropical refresh. Moody ‘almost’ blacks, earthy tones and warm neutrals are lifted with pops of coral, whilst utility details and khaki backgrounds are reminiscent of jungle treks for the coolest little adventurer.
