Gucci has released their 2012 Spring/Summer resort-ready fashion line for kids! This fun nautical and jungle inspired collection is full of stripes, classic chambray and color neutrals.
For Spring/Summer 2012, Frida Giannini, the Creative Director of Gucci has designed a functional, chic and lively collection for young travelers who can either set sail, trek through the jungle or attend a garden tea party in colorful clothes. The trends are inspired by “The Little Travelers”.
Nautical stripes and a classic palette of red, white and blue dominate the marine theme and welcome a new print – the letter G intertwined win an anchor. This emblem can be spotted on tees, bags, shoes and knitwear. Anchor-embossed gold buttons look adorable on the dapper peacoats and white trousers, offering a true “Little Captain” look.
You’ll notice a real jungle theme going on as well.
For boys, little explorers can opt for easy and casual pieces such as Bermuda shorts in denim or cotton poplin (sometimes treated for a vintage effect), pastel-colored cashmere sweaters, safari jackets, lightweight parkas and apparel in savannah-inspired colors such as aloe green, sand, dusty yellow and toffee brown.
Girls head to the seaside in blue and white with pops of cherry red and of course plenty of stripes. Ruffle-front camis, shorts, frisky skirts and tees with heart polka dots offer a fresh look. Again, look for Safari themes in the line, this time in straw and rose blush. The Gucci bird (a favorite from the House) appear on long and short tees as an applique or applied with colored micro studs. The dusty color palette includes aloe, rose, yellow, butter, mint and accents of crocus purple.
In addition, you’ll notice a dreamy, color infused line-up of cropped cardigans, t-shirts, pleated dresses and breezy camisoles are inspired by the latest women’s collection. Frida Giannnini has designed beautiful silk organdie dresses, long sleeve tees and fine knitwear with plenty of floral applications.
Celebrating their sixth year donating to UNICEF, Gucci has donated one million dollars to their “Schools for Africa” initiative and continues to support the charity through their children’s collection.
