presents the Mini-Me Autumn/Winter 2021-22

The Autumn/Winter 2021-22 Elisabetta Franchi collection ‘La Mia Bambina’ offers a sweet, playful range. The brand has a lively and dynamic spirit that, in the kids’ version, plays with cute decorative details combined with charming prints.

Many themes pop up in the collection which includes items produced with various textiles and techniques. These include an all-over check chain print in contrasting black and ruby-red colours, which offers a romantic chic air to skirts, georgette blouses and jersey trousers. In the dresses, classic sophistication comes in the black-buttery yellow shades (a must-have) or black-antique rose.

The lettering print, with the Elisabetta Franchi logo or double ‘C’, is a seasonal trend and appears all over t-shirts, sweaters and joggers for a sporty-chic look that can be worn every day. Dresses, wideleg trousers and denim skirts with screen printed logo complete the daywear collection, offering a touch of glamour to every look.

Brilliant chains link together for a rhinestone effect, livening up the lapels of jackets, collars and puffed sleeves on shirts, cuffs on blouses, dresses and skirt pocket flaps. Bows add a finishing touch to the pockets on crepe dresses, skirts and trousers.

The brand’s iconic items are also represented – the sack dress, dolly model, jumpsuits and shirts. The logo and the double ‘C’ appear on embroidered bands, embellishing cotton sweater sleeves and coordinated trousers with special details.

The outerwear is elegant and sophisticated but still suited to everyday use: special mention goes to the iconic circle quilted coat and the sheepskin coat with faux leather details.

Black, ivory and buttery-yellow are all back with a vengeance as some of the brand’s favourite colours. New entry hues include ruby-red, pearl-grey and mauve.

Finishing off the looks are cool accessories including the cross-body and shoulder bag with a clasp closure or double ‘C’, and the nylon rucksack.

The New Born 0-18 months and Baby 6-36 months ranges also adopt the check chain and lettering prints on dolly dresses and other items of clothing, both in poplin and cotton. The collection comprises romper suits, baby sleeping bags and brand blankets with the double ‘C’.

The Autumn/Winter 2021-22 collection will be produced and distributed by Gi.Mel, with over 40 years of experience in the kidswear industry.
