New York, NY (CNS) – British fashion designer Stella McCartney has created a collection for boys and girls 12 years old and below for GapKids. The new range will be launched in stores on November 2.
The collection will feature McCartney’s signature touches, such as soft color palette, familiar silhouettes, and her mix of unexpected pieces, reinterpreted with GapKids’ playful and child-like charm.
Key pieces for the girls’ range include an intarsia leopard print knit, cable knit sweater dressing and velvet blazer, while the boys’ collection speak of fun and functionality with mix monster and superhero graphic tees and navy wool peacoat with nylon concealed hoof.
McCartney said, “For years now I’ve wanted to create a collection for kids. It’s really exciting for us to do a boys and girls collection with Gap for the first time.”
“I think it has a mix of the playful and practical. I tried to create a whole kids wardrobe. There are pieces that are classic and sort of timeless and hopefully very chic, mixed with more playful and a little bit cooler pieces. It’s a reflection of our brand and a great way to experience it.”
The collection is available in GapKids and babyGap stores and online on November 2 in the U.S. and Canada, and on the 3rd in the U.K., France and Ireland.
