I was waiting for the embargo of the last press release, but here it is: there is a new trend in strollers: green! And I’m not talking about the bright green colour from tropical countries, but I mean gray-green shades of the Northern Hemisphere, with misty, wild forests with deciduous trees and pinetrees. Green represents growth, nature, hope, life and future. It is a calming color that provides balance and safety. We see that the color palette definitely has changed from bold colors to soft, natural tones inspired by the themes earth, water and nature. Mutsy (see above) was one of the first brands that used melee fabric for their strollers in beautiful nature colours with sturdy stitches. On the last trade fair in Cologne I noticed the new Mutsy Evo Industrial Olive immediately. A beauty! This stroller comes with a cognac-colored leather handle and is available in black, silver or dark gray chasis.
Stokke now comes with an exclusive Trailz Nordic Green Edition. This stroller with its large pneumatic tires really makes a statement. The lining is made of dark green melee and water repellent fabric. A nice combination with the faux leather handles and stitched details. This stroller is ready for a nice walk in the woods, on the moors and on the waterside!
The new Maxi-Cost Nova (above) has a handsfree foldingsystem and big shock absorbing wheels. The new fashion colours are black and silver for the frame and Nomad Blue, Sand en this Green for the seat and carrycot.
The German brand ABC Design surprised me at the fair with new designs and materials that will definitely appeal the Dutch consumer. Like the spicy and manoeuvrable Salsa, available as three- and four-wheeler. The silver frame and black upholstery matches well with the olive green cap.
Joolz fans will be happy to see the Joolz Geo Earth Turtle Green. From Bugaboo we liked this one best in this theme: Bugaboo Cameleon3 in dark khaki and also have a look at the Egg stroller in Forest Green. These colours have been on the market longer but for the whole picture I am glad to mention them.
For the cold winter months a nice warm blanket and foot muff should not be forgotten. Like the new Lodger bunker in Scandinavian style or nice foot muff and warm blanket with forest details from Elodie Details! This really makes you and your baby calm…
