JACK AND KATE SPADE'S COLLABORATION WITH GAPKIDS IS UNBELIEVABLY CUTE
Back in April, we were hit with a major cute alert: Kate Spade New York and Jack Spade had signed on to partner with GapKids on a limited-edition collection for children, set to hit stores just in time for the holidays. This is notable for a number of reasons: First, neither brand has ever designed pieces in the childrenswear category before, and second, it's the first time that both Spade brands have worked on a collaboration together.
The Kate and Jack Spade labels follow in the footsteps of designers like Diane von Furstenberg and Stella McCartney, who have created charming collections for GapKids — they're so cute, in fact, that Fashionista editors have been known to buy the larger-sized pieces to wear for themselves (hi, Britt!).
This collaboration is no exception: The theme is based on a young brother and sister embarking on a magical holiday adventure to their grandmother’s house. Kate Spade's playful, bright aesthetic comes through in the ballet flats adorned with gift bows, candy cane-striped tights and sassy message sweatshirts with metallic text. For the boys, there's gingham, camo and googly eyes. The collection falls at a great price point for holiday gifting: items range from $20 to $130.
