high fashion hits the playground
A few years ago I wrote a post about my obsession with Charlotte Olympia’s shoes, having just visited her London flagship store. Well exciting news, the designer has recently launched a collection for children, featuring lots of cute and quirky flats that any little girl would look adorable strutting around in. Olympia has even recreated her iconic kitty flats in girl and baby sizes, so that mothers and daughters can have a little matching moment. Isn’t that charming? You can check out the collection here.
While we’re on the subject, have you noticed that many of the top designers are jumping on the babywear bandwagon lately? A few years ago I wrote about Lanvin’s amazing children’s line, other favorite designers such as Burberry, Stella Mccartney and Isabel Marant have also been designing children’s pieces. Burberry is even making pint-sized versions of some of the key A/W 2013 Prorsum pieces.According to Vogue, Jean Paul Gaultier is launching a couture line for girls this Spring/Summer 2014. Earlier this month, J. Crew launched an adorable new baby collection, and they even carry baby blankets from Swan’s Island, the showroom I just posted about last week!
