Today The Animals Observatory is launching its new FW 2017 collection. Prepare your eyes for colour and beauty! This brand, created by Laia Aguilar, always speaks an own language and offers an exquisite overview of her own personal, iconographic universe. Laia sees children’s fashion as an artistic tool through which she can express her own extraordinary world.

Each collection is composed of a network of references that drink from the world of art, architecture, culture and memories. This season Laia Aguilar was inspired by Italian art: the work of film director Federico Fellini – a long-standing and much revisited influence; the palette of the Venetian School – especially Tintoretto and Titian, the interior designs of Carlo Scarpa and Gae Aulenti, and the handmade clothes, lovingly and skilfully crafted by the often hidden talents of the grandmothers of years gone by.

Sounds great, right? Read on and discover our favourite looks!

The Animals Observatory FW 2017 Collection: Author’s Prints

The Animals Observatory designs graphic, edgy kid’s clothing, so their prints play a major role in the collections. Cherries, dogs, stars, kites and clouds, faces and geometric shapes are some of the patterns you can find in this collection.

The retro-arty prints create a modern yet timeless kid’s clothes that both kids and parents will love. Some times are delicate prints, with vintage vibes, and other times they are bold and fun. However, the love of drawing is present in all of them.

The Animals Observatory FW 2017 Collection: Fabrics

This label always combines comfort and style and want to create smart, elegant clothes for wild kids. Children’s comfort is the first priority and for this collection, Laia has chosen warm and heavy yarns, distressed corduroys, a touch of retro with piqués and open knits, sweatshirt fabrics and pleats.

Laia Aguilar always selects the perfect colour palette. The striking and unusual colour combinations work beautifully. Finding an original and unexpected colour scheme is like finding gold, don’t you think?
