The Craft Trend for Kids’ Knitwear

Kids' Knitwear

Drawing inspiration from adults’ wear, kids’ knitwear in A/W 21/22 tends to use individual and fashionable crafts. Illustration-like Jacquard, tapes, tassels and colorful heavy-gauge work with placement destruction and voluminous cables to bring a direct fashionable visual effect.

Jacquard plays an important role in knitwear. Artistic hand-drawn patterns and cartoon images blend with 3D decorations or applique, quite popular.


Fun design and crossed string break the monotony of the solid knitwear. Orderly pointelle and concave-convex texture bring a layered sense to the style, with knot to be playful and eye-catching.

The S/S 2021 Reversed Future Theme Trend for Kidswear


What is Reversed Future? Literally, it means looking back at how people thought about the future in the past. Flying car, airship, laser cannon, floating city, pipeline transportation, conquering several planets, personal submarine and personal robot… All these imaginative visions were once thought by people in the past to be what life should be in the future. With the support of modern tech, early futurism still has unrealized ideas, adding appeal to “the future that never happened”, and enhancing the S/S 2021 retro futuristic aesthetics through virtual technology and brilliant colors. Digital space reverses the future, taking us back to a new world that “never happened.”

Kidswear theme

Emily and Matthew take out their favorite chocolate sauce that grandpa brought last week. They would secretly eat with their fingers every time. This time they take their favorite chocolate to their secret base – the tree house in the yard. The chocolate sauce is opened and Matthew can’t wait to reach out his finger. “Bang!” The chocolate sauce is knocked over by accident, and a rich sweet smell permeates the tree house. Now they can’t eat the chocolate but they can draw with it. The main keynotes are chocolate chip, apricot white and dusk blue. And terracotta, cloud pink and denim blue are paired to display a soft and elegant visual impact.

The inspiration source is spilled chocolate sauce. Irregular new polka dots and geometrics are elegant and funny with the help of chocolate tones. Doodled stick figure made of various jams are favored by many designers and consumers with its fun and uniqueness.


The fabric like voile which is created by recycled polyester fibers, nylon and ultra-thin cotton with organza texture is suitable for layered match. Lightweight, soft and comfortable organic cotton and linen are used to create seersucker. Gentle checks, stitches, fading effect and washed effect endow the fabric with novelty. Sheen fabric after press-pleating has a superior and luxurious sense and textures, suitable to enhance the layered sense of simple styles.
