One of the highlights of spring shopping last year was the collection by Gap Kids that was designed by Diane von Furstenberg. The clothing was playful, high quality and well priced. (Especially when it went on clearance.) It's an understatement to say that we are excited about DVF's new Gap Kids collection, which is launching later this week in just 22 Gap stores. You can click here to see a list of stores that carry the designer line. Unfortunately, the Upper East Side Gap is not on the list.
The safari themed collection officially launches on Thursday, but us lucky New York shoppers can get some DVF mini starting Wednesday at Gap’s 680 Fifth Avenue location. We hear that the designer will even be on location assisting shoppers. (That's reason enough for us!) Sizes range from newborn to 14 years but unlike other kid's collaborations this collection doesn't translate well to even small adult bodies.
We suggest buying the items a size larger than norm. The collection is so cute that your kids are sure to want to wear the cloths more than one season. As a matter of fact, my girls liked the blazers from the last collection so much that they recently inquired how they could engage the iconic von Frustenberg to redesign their school uniforms. Imagine how smart the kids would look!
