I love a hot collab (I got myself rather overexcited at some preview shots of the Jimmy Choo H&M collection) and now we finally get to see what Stella McCartney has designed for Gap Kids.
Bringing high fashion to Gap Kids (and taking the price point up a few notches whilst she’s at it), she’s put together a 70 piece collection that’s notching up some key trends on its belts – they say Balmain spring 09 inspired, I say a bit MJ- bit Beatles inspired on the military jacket front. Sweater dresses also make an appearance (seriously hot trend) as well as the fabulous anoraks.
Remaining true to her ethos, luxury, ethical materials have been used, so its merino, organic cotton, cashmere, and wool as well as the leather free chunky boots and trainers.
As ever, there’s plenty of practical basics, from hoodies, to PJs, tees, and more and I can hardly wait for them to arrive in store, although we may get the kids aunties to take advantage of the US exchange rate.
The military jackets will be Â£75, the yellow pacamac is Â£40, and the cable knit leopard print dress (a mini-me from her own main collection) is Â£80. I’m feeling the dusky pink tutu too.
In stores from November 2nd, I suspect that it will sell out fast even in these crunchier times as the pieces are considerably cheaper than a lot of designer childrenswear. I…cough…will be getting some for myself as the collection runs from birth to 12.
