This is where magic happens.
While being the essence of our craft, creation is also a matter of irrational instincts, flair and also talent. Why this pattern and not another? Why this cut? Why this detail? Why this material? Why this color? Of course, trend spotters’ insights inspire us, but most of all, our designers feeling guides us. They sometimes guess what is tune to the times and they sometimes spearhead or start the trend themselves, as the soothsayers they can sometimes be.
Ours is a blend of inspiration, magic, hard work and sheer passion. That is how each one the brands strong personality, image and style were defined. Absorba has a unique edge when it comes to hosiery. G-star Raw has developed the most iconic of denims and Chipie the coolest patched jeans. Let us mention Jean Bourget’s arty reinvention of conservative and Catimini’s audacious creativity with its hand-drawn prints.
However, if each of our labels has its specific characteristics, what they all have in common is the Kidiliz Group’s touch, this unique cocktail of perfect cuts, zest and trendiness, with a twist of mischievousness. Guided by product managers, our style designers strive to comply with the essential requirements of children and with each brand’s DNA. Magic means also knowing how to master fashion codes to bend them to live up to Z’s identity, 3 Pommes or Esprit. Style is in perpetual motion, and so are our creative teams!
