GapKids 2013 Collection by Diane von Furstenberg

Gap Kids 2013 by DVF

The second collaborative collection by famed designer Diane von Furstenberg for Gap Kids and Baby Gap is set to hit stores on April 25.

“I loved the challenge of translating my designs into the first collection. It was so much fun to see little girls wearing the pieces and I’m looking forward to collaborating with Gap on this second collection.”

As with the first one, this range features animal prints, primary colours and African batik-influenced patterns. “It’s very simple,” the 66-year-old says of her designs.

“It’s fun, it’s colour, it’s, ‘Oh, I want it because it’s so cute’, but then it’s got to be super practical and super flattering, so that the mothers love it and the children adore it.”

A promotional video below plays on the collection’s name, Explorers, and shows children sporting the adorable looks as they interact with animals made from brightly colored paper.

One scene shows a baby girl staring awestruck at a bright pink hummingbird, while another sees a young girl baring her teeth at a hippopotamus.
