Searching for the latest trends to style your child in? Look no further than the designer label COO COO by Pallavi Swadi that’s launching its first brick-and-mortar store in Mumbai’s Nariman Point. The store will play host to the label’s offerings that cater to age groups spanning new borns to 13-year-olds, “The space has been designed to establish a warm and relaxed ambience that underlines the aesthetic of the brand while at the same time providing a space for creative design,” says Swadi. Read on to find out all the colours, fabrics and prints that need to be a part of your child’s wardrobe.
Opt for minimal clothing
“As a mother of two, I feel less is more when I dress my child,” says the designer. When it comes to colour and prints, Swadi recommends choosing colours that suit your child’s complexion and prints that are not too over-powering. “At COO COO, we use a colour palette of the trendy pastels. Girls’ clothing incorporates floral prints, and boys’ outfits see a lot of nautical prints,” she says.
Pick the right fabric
“Keeping in mind India’s weather, every parents’ first choice of fabric should be cotton. Ensure it is of good quality to allow the fabric to breathe,” advises Swadi. “COO COO uses fabrics like modals, sateen cotton, dobby’s, oxfords, chambrays and fil-a-fil cottons for girls and boys. Our Indian collection features Chanderi and muslin cottons,” she says.
Stay up-to-date with today’s trends
“Unicorn prints and embroidery are quite the rage these days, as is the up-and-down sequin trend. Acid and ice-wash finishes on shirts for boys are in popular demand too,” says Swadi, who is incorporating these in the label’s spring summer 2019 collection. “Our next collection introduces our much-awaited Mommy & Me box-pleat lace dresses in navy, white and mustard; seersucker cold-shoulder tops; ruffled-neckline dresses in red and ruffled tops, just in time for Christmas.”
