Barring any Pierre Hardy-esque Gap-collab drama, Stella McCartney's new kids' line will go on sale November 2nd, and the designer says that it taught her many things, including that you can't get a kid over 4 to wear what you want, and that she can't draw a fairy princess.
"I worked on princess sketches for ages, and they were hideous," McCartney said. Thank god for that, because instead of princess dresses the girls' line is cute and tomboyish, with gray cashmere hoodies, motorcycle details, and a sweater with a leopard on it, reports The Times' Eric Wilson. The boys' line has a robot-monster-superhero thing going on, which means we are probably going to try to squash our grownup-sized selves into them. The line runs from newborn sizes to age 12.
