Oscar de la Renta Debuts Children’s Collection
You know its not your average show when all of the models are under ten years old, and some are skipping down the runway. Such was the scene at Oscar de la Renta’s debut of his children’s collection during New York fashion week. One model rode down the runway in a wagon. Two boys skated down the runway. Meanwhile the audience “oohed” and “aahed” (it was definitely a refreshing break from the rest of the fashion week calendar). The clothes consisted of eyelet party frocks for the girls and searsucker shorts suits for the boys.
Along with the launch, Oscar de la Renta is launching a children’s blog George & Ruby, worth a visit alone to see some adorable behind the scenes snapshots of De La Renta fitting some seriously precious tiny tots.
De La Renta isn’t the only designer jumping on the luxe childrenswear train. Both Dolce & Gabbana and Lanvin have launched children’s collections aiming to capitalize on the booming luxury market in recent months.
If one thing is for certain, thanks to this collection expect to see mothers and daughters lunching in matching frocks at Nello’s come spring after the clothes hit stores. Click through the slideshow above to see the collection.
