GapKids Team Up With Kate Spade New York and Jack Spade

GAP Kids Kate/Jack SpadeWe can always rely on GapKids to create fantastic designer collaborations and the brand’s latest partnership is no exception. First, there was Stella McCartney, then Diane von Furstenberg (twice). Now husband-and-wife duo Kate and Jack Spade have launched their first-ever joint design collaboration, and first children’s collection -at GapKids.

The line, which is available for two weeks only, embraces child-like imagination with festive styles in toddler and kids sizing. Spade’s playfulness has always infused her women’s line in the form of whimsical prints, cheeky puns and vibrant colour- and for this range she has reached into her company’s archives to extend those signatures to children’s wear.

The inspiration behind the line is 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.

“Collaborating with iconic American brands such as Kate spade New York and Jack Spade is a way of bringing style and optimism to the GapKids customer,” said Rebekka Bay, Creative Director of Gap Global Design. “We really wanted to celebrate the best of all three brands, the casualness of GapKids, the playfulness and prettiness of Kate spade New York and the quirkiness of Jack Spade.”

Deborah Lloyd, Chief Creative Officer, Kate Spade & Company said “I couldn’t think of a better partner than Gap to collaborate with on a children’s collection. Their colourful and playful spirit aligns perfectly with ours and they’ve helped us realize our vision of dressing little ones head to toe in Kate spade New York and Jack Spade for their next big adventure.”

For the boys, mini Jack Spade pieces feature crisp colorblocking, stylized camouflage, and a whimsical set of cartoon eyes that are completely in line with the merry and mischievous inspiration. For the girls, Kate Spade’s signature bow print covers a flared party dress and trousers. Sweatshirts, t-shirts and accessories are printed with sassy and cheeky sayings like ‘Here Comes Trouble’, ‘Skirt The Rules’ and ‘Are We There Yet’. Our advice would be…Get it before it’s too late!
