The concept of Enfants Terribles is proposing an energetic design theme for FW22/23 collections. The concept is based on the rebellious and subcultural notions, which are embedded in (glam) rock n roll culture. Junior and Kids collections will be drawing reference to this theme, as #backToSchool is right around the corner after the period of summer holidays.

Those accentuating colors are facing larger schemes of black, green and blue, which create a more intense baseline for kid’s collections. Those rebellious kids will wrap up in heritage textiles, such as leather and denim, which reflect the idea of power and confidence, fur and sparkling or glossy pieces for a more eclectic and maximalist twist and comfort materials that support the easy, rules-breaking street-wear look. With slogans and graphics, new generations are creating statements on an off screens and demonstrate their visions. Catchy phrases and iconic logos are crucial here.
