Stella McCartney Kids expands into its first full range collection for S/S 2011 with an extension into wholesale distribution and enhanced on line shopping experience.
The fun and modern styles for boys, girls and babies, aged newborn to 12 years, is available on the dedicated website and will be in stores worldwide next week.
The new Stella McCartney Kids collection is effortless, playful and vibrant capturing the energy and freedom of summer.
Bold florals are featured in the Polly raincoat which comes with a detachable hood that can be packed into a small bag, as well as in tops and knits.
Graphic bird patterns on dresses, tops and shorts are in blue, red and green. Vintage inspired embroidery on cotton provides a charmingly nostalgic reference in the peasant style Lily dress and Gracie top and the delicate Doris dress and Maya top.
Stripes are playful in basic knits and sweet in ruched detailed dresses and all-inones.
Denim plays a big part, as favourite styles are shrunken from Stella’s recent ready-to-wear collection; including an a-line dress, button front skirt and culottes.
5-pocket stretch jeans come in post box red, clay, off white, and pin stripes. Additional highlights include the Jay sleeveless military jacket in an olive wool cashmere and the sporty James jacket in navy with tiger embroidery.
Reflecting the designer’s ethical values, 100% organic cotton pieces featuring botanical, rainbow, horse, bird, dog and tiger illustrations are also included.
This season the collection also incorporates iconic Stella accessories including Linda low wedge natural cork sole patent sandal.
