Back in April, GapKids announced their collaboration with kate spade new york and Jack Spade featuring a range of limited-edition girls’ and boys’ apparel and accessories collection for Holiday 2014. This marks kate spade new york and Jack Spade’s first foray into childrenswear as well as the first time the Kate Spade & Company brands will partner together. The collection was inspired from the collection’s archives, features recreated signature pieces from the past, downsized and in fabrics more suited to children’s play and adventure.
Focusing on a child’s carefree sense of adventure and excitement, the collection follows a brother and sister imagining their way through a magical journey to grandmother’s house during the holiday season. The idea of packing for a family holiday reunion, celebrating the journey seen from the back seat of the car, the actual celebration and the overnight stay, are themes that can be seen throughout.
The collection is slated to release on October 30th for two weeks only in in select Gap stores in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Hong Kong and Japan and on gap.com. The collection will be available in toddler and kids sizing combining “the playful feminine and colorful twists of kate spade new york and the energetic charm of Jack Spade with GapKids’ iconic American style.” Collection includes cute dresses, graphic sweatshirts, winter accessories, stylish tech cases, and more.
