Ode to Freedom is one of the exciting FW22 trend stories for junior and kids collections. After missing-out on their childhood for over a year, kids are now able to go out again and have the possibility to embrace such newfound freedom. Discovery has become a core driver, as well as the enjoyment of experiences that create the memories of such effortless young years. The return to real worlds is igniting a sense for exploration, which sees kids reconnecting with nature and mother earth. As opposed to the previous years, when kids were bound to the screens in almost hypnotized manners, they are now letting go of their electronic games and tablets and rushing into nature. The refreshing and igniting spirit of real interaction with others and of the interaction with the planet is proposing a new path for this liberated generation. Little free spirits are now branching out to savor the outdoors and to go on adventures that explore the joys of life.
The color palette provides a nostalgic mix of saturated yellows, warm sun-burnt orange shades, saturated reds, lost cyan blues and sedimental beiges. In terms of prints, florals and paisleys take the lead, while depictions of primitive art and mystic folk culture are translating top trends of the womenswear market to the younger audience. The resulting vibe embeds an optimistic and slightly spiritual mood. Patchwork themes are another core part of such free-spirited and enchanting looks. The crafty concept incorporates ideas of sustainability and durability as well. Fur details, conscious-materials and denims are creating a nature-driven look and add depth to the theme. The idea of the desert, which is crucial to the nomadic trend finds interpretation within washed-out effects and rustic finishes.
