Well, I don’t think MY family’s budget is the target audience, but Breezy Mama couldn’t resist sending Lan, a.k.a. For Kids Entertainment’s New York Events Editor, to a fashion show for Stella McCartney Kids Line for Spring-Summer 2013 to sneak a peek.
You know Stella McCartney is a mom when you check out her latest Stella McCartney Kids line for Spring-Summer 2013, available for newborn to size 14 at stellamccartney.com.
The clothes, made of soft cotton or cotton cashmere blends, are infinitely wearable and sturdy enough to withstand any play date. Bright colored tees, pants, shorts, tops and dresses retail from $45 to $365. There are also stylish dresses (the Bell and Lucia) that are runway ready, naturally. And new this year: 8 swim outfits so cute that your kids will jump at the chance to put them on.
But what sets Stella McCartney Kids apart from other collections is the sense of whimsy in many of her pieces. I love the pirate sleep outfit, the Rufus all-in-one, and the parrot decorated Pip dress and Penny sandals. Perfect for the child who dreams of being a designer: three tees (a deer, a parrot, or eerie print) and accompanying pouches that they can color in themselves.
