Emphasize beauty through the use of colorвЂ¦ Finding inspiration in a world of flowersвЂ¦"- (Pantone). These are phrases that aptly describe the new collection for Spring/Summer 2011 from LamanBlu, eco-friendly designer clothing for girls.
This collection is designed to be lived in, laughed in and played in. Its clean silhouettes and floral detailing are flattering, fun and pretty.
Inspired by flowers plucked from their natural surroundings and positioned into a new palette, this collection brings spring into a childвЂ™s wardrobe. LamanBlu has designed this collection to inspire creativity in the children who wear it and the adults who buy it for them. All pieces can be mixed and matched and worn in many ways to create a modern, versatile wardrobe, suited to play in the park, a day out with mom and dad, or any occasion.
The collection features bright, colorful garments that reflect on the fun and free spirit of children. The color palette for this season is full of saturated brights, including Pink Flambe, Blazing Yellow, Violetto and Bright Chartreuse all balanced by Bright White, Gossamer Pink and Estate Blu.
For prints, the offering includes custom designed photo orchid ditsy prints and crayon stripes on a fine cotton shirting. There is also an oversized orchid photo screen print in the collection, making a bold statement, and all exclusive to LamanBlu. They are printed using the latest water based inks which are not only vibrant but also environmentally friendly.
LamanBlu continues its offering of designer quality bamboo knits and has added a new designer weight cotton/lycra knit to its collection as a sharper price point option. Sizes are 6mos вЂ“ 6x. As always, the LamanBlu collection is easy care for the busy family, with the entire line being machine wash and dry, and ironing is optional.
