Petit Bateau's Spring/Summer 2018 collection is punctuated by the colours of childish pink, bold green, precious white, infinite blue and bright yellow.
The creation of this collection began more than a year ago when the Petit Bateau Style teams (stylists and graphic designers) visited the exhibition of the Institut du Monde Arabe de Paris, entitled "Jardins d'Orient". This visit was their source of inspiration: nature and more particularly the art of water in its Oriental gardens but also flowers with delicate shapes and colours ...
To play lightly in the rain, Petit Bateau offers a new model for children of all ages: the fitted windproof jacket, as useful as it is easy to take with you everywhere. For special occasions, the Ceremony collection is now available throughout the season! For everyday: straw hats, bobsleeves, caps, headband, bandana, bags, baskets and socks accessorize each outfit. Finally, swimwear is available all year round!
For the little ones, surprises and favourites are in the spotlight to dress baby from the very first days. This summer collection has been specially designed and adapted for the different positions of newborns. Indeed, all the outfits allow them unprecedented freedom of movement and comfort by combining softness and authenticity thanks to an important work on the mesh. A range of specific colours has been developed. Exclusive floral prints embellish the bodies and dresses of little girls and the tribe of little boys plays with "polorama", a colourful version of a new polo shirt.
In the wardrobe of little girls, we find new modern and timeless forms. On the printed side, Petit Bateau la cheek oversize: t-shirts, sweaters, skirts, dresses, vests, jackets are covered with flowers in WWL format that compose with the codes of the brand's chic and authentic marine cloakroom.
This season for the boys, the preppy is once again in the spotlight. At Petit Bateau, it's always about team spirit and tribe! In terms of materials, knitwear prevails: comfort for sports, iconic for everyday life and chic for pretty occasions.
For the Women's collection, graphic and structured, Petit Bateau is launching a new concept of white cotton t-shirts! There are five of them, in addition to the Original 1x1 rib. Four of them are made of fine jersey with a cut that is detached from the body: the essential round neck, the famous boat neck, the Admiral, the Dancer neck and the V neck. The 5th is the Bodyconique, the Original 1x1 rib in body. Linen, a noble fibre that respects the planet, is more present in loungewear, chic and comfort both inside and out. As for little girls, the woman is entitled to her weekbook of panties and new accessories: banana, backpack, boat bag and travel bag in the same material as the iconic yellow waxes.
The Men's collection brings together all the essentials of marine codes.
In short, this season again, the brand is written in knitwear and prints: it is the brand's signature and what also makes it unique. Petit Bateau has the audacity to be different, to shake up codes and to go beyond trends.
Long live the natural and authentic summer at Petit Bateau !
