Kidscase teamed up with fashion designer and freshly father Antoine Peters to celebrate the birth of his baby boy Alf. This new collaboration resulted in the playful AW 16 | 17 kidscase + Antoine Peters all-round capsule collection. Inspired by kids in general and little Alf in particular the collection symbolizes children’s disarming, contagious smiles and inquisitive nature. It is all about children having fun and exploring uncharted waters.
Antoine: “For me it’s really important to take kids seriously. Because of that I designed clothes that I actually would love to wear myself!”
The kidscase + Antoine Peters AW16 | 17 capsule collection was presented and sold to international retailers worldwide and received great critical acclaim by the trade press and new media community.
kidscase + Antoine Peters AW16/17 is expected to land in store in selected (web)shops worldwide and online at www.kidscase.com from August 1st 2016.
kidscase + Antoine Peters includes eight exclusive styles for boys – or just as good for pink avoiding tomboy girls - in a diverse range of vibrant, bold colours. In each design Antoine’s signature smile emerges, as an exuberant artwork or incorporated into a repeat pattern. An embroidered winter jacket, t-shirts with funky graphics, a chunky knit ‘Big Smile’ sweater, slick sweatpants and accessories like a knit pompom hat, scarf and socks together create a top-to-toe look. Antoine can now spoil his Alf with his own complete wardrobe!
The jersey cotton styles and the socks in the collection are made from organic cotton and printed with water-based dyes. Sizes range from 3 months up to 10 years.
