The kids’ collection Stella McCartney designed for Gap hits stores November 2. Sizes are for newborns up to 12-year-olds and prices range from $14 for wool tights up to $128 for a military jacket. Some pieces are cheap, miniature versions of McCartney’s ready-to-wear pieces, such as a gray sweater dress with a leopard on it, skinny gray jeans with ankle zippers, and a gray cable-knit cardigan dress. And that military jacket is very spring 2009 Balmain. So this is a very fashion-forward collection, indeed. While most of it is wearable, are little boys who have no interest in playing marching band really going to wear that military jacket, “sewn with intricate gold brocade,” on the playground? Skinny adults are likely to try to fit into the largest sizes. Also, Ryan McGinley shot the ad campaign. He’s perhaps most famous for his adult nudes.
