The most adorable launch of the year is now in stores: Diane von Furstenberg’s collection for GapKids and babyGap! One year after the designer’s first collaboration with the retailer debuted, she returns to deliver another collection full of mini-me pieces, and this time, she’s inspired by the “natural explorer” inside each child—think African-inspired safari prints and wild animal illustrations on rompers, wrap dresses, shorts, swimwear, and accessories, all with DVF’s bright and cheery touch. “It was a lot of fun to design a children’s collection and I am glad to repeat this year,” said von Furstenberg. “This time it is all about adventure, with the same attention to color and print. I think the result is playful and perfect for the little explorers of the world.” Shop the collection for the adventurous little girl in your life by heading to a local GapKids or babyGap near you or head to gap.com browse and buy online.

After launching a successful collaboration with GapKids and babyGap last May, Diane von Furstenberg is coming back for round two—her second collection for the retailer will land in stores and online this April. ”I really loved the challenge of translating my designs into the first DVF for Gap collection,” the designer said in a statement. “It was so much fun to see little girls wearing the pieces, and I’m looking forward to collaborating with Gap on this second collection.” With her first installment brimming with punchy graphics, adorable wrap dresses, and playful blazers all for under $120 (see the photos to the right!), we can’t wait to see what she has in store the second time around!
