Diane von Furstenberg has long been outfitting adult women with colorfully printed wrap dresses and other wardrobe staples, but now she’s translating her vision to clothing for young girls thanks to an upcoming collaboration with the Gap. The collection, which is set to launch March 15, features shift dresses, shorts, and cropped trousers in simple silhouettes and colorful prints.
Art Peck, the president of Gap for North America said:“I'm looking forward to offering our customers an exciting collection that applies [DVF’s] signature approach to print, optimistic color and femininity.”
In the behind-the-scenes video on the Gap’s website (which you MUST check out below, because it is too cute to miss), we see little girls interacting with the legendary designer as she outfits them and shoots the ad campaign for the collection.
The only thing that upsets me about this collaboration is that there aren’t grown-up clothes by DVF for me to buy at the Gap (or try to buy before ebay vultures snag them anyway). But from what I can see, it looks great, and if I had a little girl, I would definitely want to dress her in some of these pieces. DVF didn’t make the mistake of making miniature adult clothes that look stiff or too precious. Little girls can play and have fun in this stuff while still looking super cute.
