One of my favorite trend in kids fashion is mini-me collections that are a pint-size version of the women’s or men’s collection featured on the runway during fashion week in Paris, Milan, New York and London. I can’t get enough of these photos comparing women’s collections to girls mini-me looks for Winter 2014.
My favorite source for mini-me looks is Melijoe, a Parisian based online boutique that features kids fashion design in their monthly Le Magazine. It’s a must-read for kids fashion lovers!
Here are my favorite Mini Me Looks featured in Melijoe’s Le Magazine:
Dolce & Gabbana Girls Mini Me Look
Dolce & Gabbana is the leading designer in mini-me fashion that offers a shrunk down collection for boys and girls that is an exact replica of the current women’s and men’s runway collections.
For the Fall Winter 2014-15 collection Dolce & Gabbana brought us to “Enchanted Sicily” featuring fairies, princesses, owls, foxes, squirrels, and swans. A standout piece is the owls on a blue brocade shift offering a mix of ultra-cute and hyper-sophisticated.
Little Marc Jacobs Hearts
One of my favorite Mini Me brands from the US is Little Marc Jacobs. This adorable Little Marc Jacobs Pink and Purple Motif Dress are taken from the Marc Jacobs Spring Summer 2012 runway. Who wears it best? Mother or daughter?
Oscar de la Renta Red Festive Dress
Sadly we lost couture legend Dominican-American design Oscar de la Renta this year. His fashion legend continues to live on with the Oscar de la Renta children’s collection launched back in 2012.
Love this Oscar de la Renta Girls Red Party Dress, a perfect mini-me taken from the women’s Fall-Winter 2013-14 runway show sharing the same palettes, motifs, and cuts of the most celebrated designer of his time.
Jean Paul Gaultier Girls Oriental Prints
Fashion legend Jean Paul Gaultier knows how to put on a runway show. Love this photo taken from his Spring Summer 2012 collection featuring oriental prints with a Boy George twist. Gaultier Junior brings this style back for girls in their Fall Winter 2014 collection.
Stella McCartney Girl Tartan Coat
Who can forget one of the most popular kids mini-me brands, Stella McCartney Kids launched back in 2012? Being a mom of four Stella McCartney knows quite a lot about kids fashion. Stella McCartney Kids season after season is inspired by her women’s runway looks that are a highlight of Paris Fashion Week. Love this Stella McCartney Girls Tartan Cape a mini-me from Stella McCartney’s Fall Winter 2013-14 collection.
