Winter is waaaay too long this year... but Spring is coming!

We are in February and I have to say that I am already done with the winter season.  Of course, depending on where you are on this planet, you might not feel this way but here in Europe, we have a "real" winter this year.  Cold temperatures and snow, snow, snow.  Tons of snow! 

Our Chocolatine Boutique little coats have been selling really good since the Fall, as well as our little hats but I have to say that I am ready to start selling the Spring/Summer 2013 collection.  "Where is the Spring/Summer 2013 collection for Chocolatine Boutique?"  No worries, it is ready to go but not in the shop just yet...

JCrew S/S 2013
But, by the way, are you ready for the next season? Do you know what the next season's kids fashion trends are and how your little ones will trot around all next summer? Looking at the wide spectrum of current kids designers, my tips are as follow: lots of yellow tones, bright neon pink, green and orange set against soft pastels, and don't forget metallics and glitter for shoes!!!
Jean-Paul Gaultier S/S 2013
Melijoe S/S 2013
Only bright colors? Not at all... I also spotted bright but all white ensembles.
Christian Dior S/S 2013
Prints this year focus mostly on tropical, bold graphic, ditsy flowers, plaids, gingham and stripes as well as the ever-popular Liberty of London prints (I am in my happy place here)
Bonpoint S/S 2013
What about the fabrics themselves? Brocade fabrics rub shoulders with less noble, but just as fun, fabrics such as metallic nettings, soft cottons and metallic rayons.

Last but not least, detail is as important as ever, but this season, it focuses on the neck with lovely Peter Pan collars, big and skinny bows and classic square necklines.

But what about Chocolatine Boutique??? Please bear with us just a few more days as we will unveil the S/S2013 Collection very very soon...
