Diana von Furstenberg's much-anticipated collection for Gap Kids has finally hit the UK. Launching into stores across the country and online today, the bold, bright and beautiful collection of childrenswear brings the essence of DVF to the high street.
Comprising all of the colourful prints and bold tones the New York-based designer has made her signature, the collection of clothing for tots and tweens is pure Diane von Furstenberg - something that will appeal to the adults who will be buying the clothing as much as the children who will wear it.
The vibrant, springlike collection, which is created for babies through to 14-year-olds, has at its heart DVF's vintage prints - predominantly the instantly recognisable hibiscus print and leaf motif, as well as her signature house print made up of her initials woven through with bold hearts.
Colours are paintbox-bright, with juicy orange and yellow sitting next to leafy greens, pops of bright blue and splashes of vivid red.
It's packed with summer wardrobe essentials including T-shirt dresses, vests and shorts, capris, leggings and swimwear. Accessories, including sunglasses, espadrilles and sandals.
For mothers and the little ones, vintage prints appear on all-in-ones and rompers, as well as rattles and chic diaper bags.
'The collection captures the essence of a little girl's dream wardrobe, as imagined by an icon of American women's fashion,' Gap said of the collection.
'Diane, alongside the design team at Gap, has created a collection true to her unique style, while her experiences as a mother and grandmother have informed designs that will delight girls and their mothers alike.'
The designer revealed that her intention with the collection was to celebrate 'life and colour', and to empower little girls with clothes that allow them freedom of expression.
