Paade Mode TEEN SS16 by BINDEMANE

I’ve been with Paade Mode since their first kids fashion collection, working on ideas, style and setting the future goals, but last season Paade’s artistic director Linda approached me and asked if I’d like to work on a collaboration collection. So I did a nice capsule, starring my daughter Maya. As it was super successful, and we are not only selling in NYC, South Corea and many other worldwide spots, but also got great reviews from leading mags, like Kidswear Magazine, etc…I asked if they would let me deal with the teenage market! And here is a beautiful result – bold, colorful and chic street style with a boho attitude.
