Diane von Furstenberg's Playground Runway

Diane Von Furstenberg, whoa! And once again, my kid will be more stylish than I am …

Wait, let me back up a little – I’m talking about the news that the great DVF is designing a line of kids and baby clothes for Gap. It’s one of those unexpected things that when you hear it, makes perfect sense – those prints, those colors, the likelihood that the inventor of the wrap dress wouldn’t put a bunch of weird zippers and difficult buttons all over a toddler’s party clothes!

My 3-year-old daughter loves to wear dresses (my GenX/grunge tendencies mean nothing to her!) and while most of her clothes are hardy basics, I’ve gone the designer route for her a couple times before – for instance, a Stella McCartney for GapKids dress that grabbed me by the face and wouldn’t let go – so I’m really looking forward to seeing what this collaboration comes up with.

You’ll want ‘em to wear a bib over this one at snack time, is all …
