Last week, Diane von Furstenberg and Gap Kids unveiled their second collection together. I attended the launch event at Gap's flagship store on Oxford Street. While I sipped the most delicious fruit juice (a concoction of peach and passionfruit), the playful, brightly-coloured clothing collection for girls from 0-12 years had me yearning for long summer days.
Aptly named the Explorer Collection, the collaboration succesfully combines signature DVF designs with the easy, everyday clothing-wear that Gap Kids is known for. Exotic animal, floral and geometric prints and patterns adorn dresses, jumpsuits, shorts, t-shirts, trousers, swimsuits, sunglasses and footwear. The collection is playful and stylish, evoking adventure and a tiny dose of mischief too—a perfect representation of childhood summer days.
Here are some of favourite pieces from this adorable collection. In fact, I couldn't resist picking one of the dresses for my daughter!
(P.S. One of my favourite collaborations between Gap Kids and the famous designers. My daughter still wears the cheetah shirt from this 2009 line!)
