My biological alarm clock, after 28 years, is finally blasting me awake (to the sound of Renée Montagne’s voice, of course). I am all ’bout the babies lately: the ones running around in the park, the ones being pushed in strollers by their hot dads, but never ever the ones crying in the middle of a tennis match. I’ve even started eyeing kids’ clothes! It doesn’t help that great collections abound, including the latest collaboration between Gap and Stella McCartney.
A pup in lamb’s clothing: This second installment (the first one dropped at the end of 2009) speaks to our love for rolled collars, side zip-front jackets, and nautical themes. While it’s nothing revolutionary, it makes us wonder if this is how Stella would design for grown men. (The girls get the usual Stella dose of frills, ruffles, pleats, eyelets, and droopy fabric.) Buy: New Yorkers have been chipping away at inventory for the past five days (via the Gap White Space pop-up). Now the rest of us can follow. Click here.
And at Fore Axel & Hudson, they’re churning out golf-inspired looks without the sport’s stuffy ‘tude. The same way that kids should be talked to like adults, Designer Paul Nguyen took a shrinking gun to silhouettes normally seen on the greens (cardigans, sweater vests) and re-sized them for the Spongebob set. Detailing is youthful, but not necessarily child-like; we love it. Check out the lookbook at foreaxelandhudson.com. (via DailyCandy)
