Kidswear show Bubble London has signed up new labels including Steiff and Troizenfants to its spring 11 edition in June.
Bubble London, which will run from June 20 to 21 at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London, will host a bank of first-time exhibitors this year.
The signings follow last month’s confirmation that kidswear giant CWF would attend the show. CWF holds the kidswear licences for brands including Timberland and DKNY.
New labels to the show also include ethical brand Bee Bee, which is certified by Global Organic Textile Standard and offers practical styles for girls and babies aged 0 to eight years.
Steiff, the brand famed for its collectable teddy bears, will bring a collection of boys’ and girls’ clothing for 0 to 3 year-olds, all of which feature the Steiff bear motif, to Bubble.
Another new signing is Goodie Two Shoes, a collection of boxed knitted clothing and footwear, which is all made locally in Nottingham. Also from the UK Helen Gordon sells printed, fairytale-inspired clothing, homewares and accessories.
Dutch label Koeka caters for boys and girls aged 0 to ten, with clothing, swimwear and homewares, while German brand Lässig’s specialises in kids’ accessories including bags and pencil cases.
Little Loui offers vintage-inspired girlswear; Australian brand Minti sells printed cotton and distressed denim pieces and Dutch label Rockabye-Baby offers designs inspired by music and pop culture.
Finally, French brand Troizenfants was founded in 2004 to reach the 0 to twelve year-old market. It is available across Europe, Asia, America and the Middle East but so far has little presence in the UK.
