Sea monsters, mermaids and forest fairies make for enchanting back to school style
Redfish Kids reveals its Fall 2017 Collection, drawing from the magic of nautical myths and captivating children’s storybooks. This is the largest Redfish Kids collection to date at 108 pieces and is now available in store and online.
Anchored to a palette of deep-ocean and sky blues with splashes of sunshine yellow, along with eye-catching, whimsical fairy tale motifs and patterns, the 2017 Fall Collection features high-quality fabrics to create a durable, comfortable, and fashion-forward clothing collection, designed to mix-and-match with multiple combinations and options that work together.
“Back to school means back to books, but books are never boring,” quips Redfish Kids co-founder Kristy Brinkley. “Books transport readers to faraway lands, full of magical and mythical creatures; getting lost in a wonderful tale of adventure is something that we set out to capture within this new collection.”
The Fall 2017 Collection is designed to accommodate busy mornings: getting ready for school on brisk autumn days; jumping in big piles of crunchy leaves on the walk to school, or gallivanting in the playground. Using high-quality fabrics in an array of vibrant patterns – including soft organic cotton and bamboo – kids and parents alike will love the eclectic and dynamic colours, free-moving styles and durability of wear.
Favourites from the Fall 2017 Collection, available online and in the Redfish Hornby Street and Dundarave stores, include:
Returning from the Redfish vault, this classic is a must-have this fall season. With its boat neck neckline, short sleeve nature and empire waistline – this dress is easy to wear, yet super stylish for no-fuss mornings.
