Luxe fashion house Givenchy’s creative director Riccardo Tisci has designed a children’s collection for the brand and couture lovers are very, very excited. This new premium range is said to have been inspired by tiny fashion plates, North West and Blue Ivy.
North’s mum Kim K is a Givenchy devotee from way back. She was married in Givenchy and who could forget her much-maligned floral couch dress at the Met Ball?
It seems that her kids are being schooled in the fine art of fancy fashion too.
Tisci famously sent North a custom Bambi shirt a couple of years ago and designed matching outfits for North and Kim to wear to Givenchy’s Spring/Summer 2105 show.
He also created matchy-matchy gowns for Blue Ivy and mum Beyonce, for a Vogue shoot back in 2013.
It’s not known for a fact that North and Blue Ivy prefer couture and runway shows to play clothes and the park, but it certainly seems that way at this stage… [insert side-eye emoji]
This new kid’s collection will span a whole bunch of ages and stages, from one month through to twelve years, and is set for release in the northern hemisphere’s 2017 Autumn.
In Style reports that this could be the first step towards a Givenchy kids’ lifestyle brand, something that Tisci has spoken of before.
Sources say that there may even be teeny-tiny versions of some iconic Givenchy couture gowns included as a capsule range in the collection.
While non-fancy types like me tend to think Honey-I-Shrunk-The-Kids’-couture-gowns might be taking things a little to close to the adult realm, it’s probable that some well-to-do families can think of nothing they’d like more than a drop-dead-gorgeous beaded shift for their two-year-old.
Horses for courses, and all.
Teddies are the new black
Givenchy’s revealed that the range will consist of 60 pieces for girls, 40 styles for boys and 30 baby Givenchy designs. Excitingly the collection will include (apparently) edgy items such as black teddy bears, too.
In Style reports that pricing will be pretty much in line with what you’d expect from a fancy fashion label. Baby t-shirts will retail at around 80 euros (around $115 AUD), with the high end of the price-point spectrum including 300 euro ($430 AUD) kid coats.
Perhaps you quite fancy a little bit of baby Givenchy in your nursery wardrobe? Maybe your toddler needs to swan about in a sophisticated coat or gown? The choice will soon be yours, parents!
Thanks North and Blue Ivy and their grown-up-man-friend Riccardo for making all this possible.
