Stella McCartney Teams With BabyGap and GapKids
Ranging from US$14 tights to $128 jackets, Stella MCCartney has teamed up with the Gap, designing items for both boys and girls 0- 6 months to 12 years, some of which are already going out of stock. The famous vegan designer (daughter of Beatle, Sir Paul McCartney) is also a mother of three, so one can safely assume this was a project close to her heart; the 70-piece collection is said to be "fabulous" and "melds a mother’s dream for practical stylishness with kids’ desire for fun and fantasy."
For boys, McCartney’s mix includes monster and superhero graphic tees with the likes of a navy wool peacoat with concealed hood. There are organic jeans, anoraks made from recycled fabrics and simple baseball tees. Girls' pieces consist of a leopard print knit, a velvet blazer and cable knit sweater dressing. There are also skinny jeans and classic flares, even very girlish tulle tutu, ruffled front smock dress, oversized hoodie sweaters, chunky cardigans and colorful high top sneakers.
Word is that McCartney used real kids rather than professional models for her fashion shoot.
