Pliko Mini is our “baby”, a small stroller that has all the great features of its “elder brothers”, including a reclining backrest (with an angle over 150°), adjustable- height handles, a central handle for collapsing and wheels with springs. And, of course, Pliko Mini is free-standing.
In the 2012 collection this real little “gem” has what can only be considered an amusing, cheerful, contemporary and definitely pop print pattern – comics.
We asked Elisa, the stylist who designed the pattern, a few questions.
Not just plain colours – are mothers ready for a pattern with a strong character?
I think that everybody today needs to be positive and this cheerful pattern brightens the day of the people who buy the stroller.
Why a comic strip pattern? What kind of mothers do you think it will appeal to?
It will appeal to young mothers with character, active mothers who are not afraid to dare and like to be fashionable.
How did the stroller’s pattern come about? Did you make it? What does it represent?
I made it entirely myself. It started a bit as a game but we liked it immediately and really enjoyed drawing it. It pays homage to comic strips and there is a fantastic story in the stroller.
Do you consider it a unisex print pattern or do you think the mothers of boys are more likely to choose it?
We don’t think it is more of a boy’s pattern. We also take into account that this kind of stroller is usually chosen by an older brother or sister. The pattern is striking and certainly does not go unobserved.
Thank you, Elisa, for answering our questions. One thing’s for sure: the Pliko Mini with a comic strip pattern is very cheerful and has the touch of irony we all need in life. It’s obviously worth it, isn’t?
