Jean Paul Gaultier has introduced a couture line for children adding to his prêt-à-porter label he started in 2009. Launching for spring/summer 2014, the range will be updated every six months.
His first designs for the new line were inspired by the finale dress from the spring/summer couture 2013 collection – when the styles were first seen, as little girls appeared from underneath the model’s voluminous gown (see below). The mini tulle dresses – available in ivory and pink – have silk bodices and an accompanying bolero adorned with Swarovski crystals. A limited run of 90 pieces have been produced in each colourway, and went on sale recently, priced at $1,200 each. The theme is Princess all the way. And at that price, you might have to actually be a princess or the mother of one to have that in your budget!
Alicia Keys, son Egypt and the other models at the Ralph Lauren Fall 2014 Children’s Fashion Show.
Okay, so this is almost hot off the presses! Monday night, little Egypt, son of Alicia Keys, had his fashion debut, modeling in the Ralph Laurent Fall 2014 Children’s Fashion show, In Support Of Literacy. The show was hosted by Uma Thurman and attended by other celebrities such as Edie Falco and Ireland Baldwin.
Baby Dior Spring/Summer 2014 has really come up roses for this season! A rhapsody of elegance in pinks in varying shades for the girls, and very extended color palette for both the girl and the boys actually. A really wonderful, and quite large collection in sharp casual wear and of course, the Dior upscale dresses and tuxedos in luxurious fabrics.
Burberry Kids, Spring/Summer 2104 is a very tight range in eye-popping colors and unexpected touches like huge red polka dots. Their classic trenches are of course, a part of this range too. Check out the video below to see the whole collection with a bunch of super, active kids!
I’m just wondering if this range is non-toxic yet. Burberry is phasing out toxic chemicals in their production by June of this year, so maybe not. But good for them and quite a few other major, high end labels.
Now for some fab and fearless Brit fashion for girls! Miss Hall Spring/Summer 2014 is a blast and it’s their very first season.
Miss Hall caters to ages 4-12 years with a quintessentially British look, but a striking boldness – like that daring blue tunic top above. The mix of textures and artistic prints is nicely tied together for this debut. And take a look at the unexpected summery tropical print kaftan.
Okay, now for something completely different and magical and wonderful. I am in love with this new label and the Aristocrat Kids Spring Summer 2014 Collection. This isn’t just a label, it’s a whole world that little girls immerse themselves in. The garments, styling and website and everything has been carefully crafted to provide a whole, fantasy experience. And the actress in me really resonates with what they have created!
The white formal wear in this collection is indeed fit for an old-fashioned aristocrat and even the more casual styles are comfortable but still completely classy with the oversize polka dots and flowers. Definitely all fit for a lady!
The only brand of children’s clothing that contributes to the healthy development of children – Zig Zig Zaa – launches its fall/winter 15 collection with the theme ” Circus Show “. This Brazilian brand was created with a twist: the company wanted to have a brand that would attend to the kids’ needs in the first place, and they have a child development expert on call to approve all the designs for all the collections. The colors, shapes and stimuli are thought to please the children, not the grownups.
AliOli Spring/Summer 2014 has taken English Kid’s fashion to romantic to sweet and high levels! All of this season’s styles are breezy, in cool cottons, light colors, and in comfortable cuts for kidsplay. I am a sucker for boys in those cotton Indian inspired shirts. Their gorgeous floral headdresses give the range a sort of Shakespearean fantasy feeling. What little girl wouldn’t love one of those? To see the whole range, go to the AliOli Kids website.
