Dolce & Gabbana’s first collection for kids hit stores in July, and while no mini versions of the house’s spring bejeweled, corseted one-pieces are involved, Gabbana did tell WWD: “It’s a miniature version of our signature line.”
If the designs aren’t exactly the same as the adult collection—there are lace-trimmed crepe de chine blouses and cashmere capes for girls, and tuxedo suits and tricot jogging outfits for boys—the designers aimed to keep the quality high. “This is not the moment to pull back on quality, which remains a priority,” said Dolce.
The collection focuses on fall and spans everything from clothing, innerwear, beachwear, and accessories to footwear for newborns up to ten-year-olds. There’s even a special selection of tulle dresses and silk suits for baptisms. “This is an homage to Italy and to our tradition. It’s part of our culture and marks one of the most important moments in our lives,” said Gabbana.
