Great, now even 5 year olds are going to dress better than me. Back in April, when I first saw this picture at The Sartorialist
, I was shocked. How could this little boy, with his pinstripe shirt, sporty blazer and cool kicks, make a 33 year old woman jealous? Holy moly - you won't understand till you see this picture
- this boy has style!
Perhaps it's because I haven't officially entered mommy-ville, then, that I felt more jealously than excitement when I heard the news about Stella McCartney's new Gap Kids and Baby line. The 70-piece line is due out on November 2nd and promises clothes made from materials that aren't "scratchy." In fact, you'll be dressing your sweetie in lovely fabrics like organic cotton, cashmere and wool.
Here's more of what you can expect.
"A T-shirt printed with a superhero design and a pair of white high-top sneakers can both be customized with a set of colored markers sold alongside the garments. There are also pajamas that come in a dinosaur-print bag for boys, along with tulle tutu skirts in caramel...A girl’s taupe trenchcoat is lined with cotton printed with the words “I Love You,” while the military jacket is sewn with intricate gold brocade and a tailored jacket in brushed cotton has silk lapels."
Prices for the collection run from $14 for wool tights through to $128 for a military-style jacket.
Finally, here's a cool little story. Instead of casting children from modeling agencies, McCartney put a call out on Facebook for regular kids. The images, shot by Ryan McGinley, feature 20 children ranging in age from one to eight years. Way to use social media!
