There is a new wave of fascination with children clothes lately. Higher end designers are either producing their own line of childrenwear or collaborating with more affordable brands to produce chic children clothing. In the latest Lanvin Resort collection, creative director Alber Elbaz introduced childrenwear with girls all wearing what it seemed miniature classic Lanvin designs. Not sure if this will go flying out of the Lanvin store since the prices for this brand are not exactly affordable but the girl looks super cute jumping out of a Lanvin bag.
Lanvin is not the first high end brand to start producing childrenwear lately; Stella McCartney launched her children collection after her highly successful collaboration with GAP kids last year. Next year Gap is collaborating with Diane Von Furstenberg to produce a second childrenwear designer collection which many eager fashionable mothers will go out and buy. I’m not sure why do children have to look fashionable since aren’t they suppose to go out to play and get dirty? The collections are very cool but it seems like we are playing dress up with children and nothing else, and at a very expensive price.
