Gap is proud to announce its second collection by Diane von Furstenberg for GapKids and babyGap to launch in spring 2013, for girls from newborn to age 14.
Arriving in Gap stores in April end 2013, Diane takes Gap girls on a voyage of discovery with a colorful collection featuring exotic prints and patterns that embrace the natural explorer inside every child.
A signature Diane von Furstenberg palette comes to life with African inspired prints and wild animal illustrations, capturing the excitement of discovery. Collection favorites were created with the adventurous girl in mind, from the iconic DVF wrap dress–reworked with playfully integrated shorts–to brightly printed skinny fit jeans. Prints are bold and classic DVF, from charming hibiscus buds, to the DVF signature heart and the Gap/DVF graffiti.
A safari theme emerges in a shirt and shirt-dress adorned with playful patches, and graphic T-shirts featuring tigers and zebras, fauna, flora and exotic butterflies. Shorts have a paper-bag waist and full-leg and pair perfectly with jersey separates–leggings, tees and simple vest tops. There are even rompers for baby girls. The playful collection also extends to swimwear and accessories, from chic espadrilles to the essential sunhat.
“It was a lot of fun to design a children's collection and I am glad to repeat it this year. This time it is all about adventure, with the same attention to color and print. I think the result is playful and perfect for the little explorers of the world!” said Diane von Furstenberg.
Stephen Sunnucks, Global President of Gap, said “Diane's iconic prints, signature silhouettes and optimistic color palettes really resonated with our customers around the world. After a successful first collaboration, we're thrilled to continue working with Diane and excited to see what she will bring forward in her second DVF for Gap collection.”
