Dolce & Gabbana Starting Children’s Line
Dolce & Gabbana’s first children’s collection will be stores in July. Gabbana said, “It’s a miniature version of our signature line.” You can still expect the same quality from the Italian designers. They made it a point to say they did not pull back on quality of fabrics. The line will consist of clothing, innerwear, beachwear, accessories and footwear. The line is for boys and girls ranging from newborns up to 10 years old. There will be a division of the line that is dedicated to baptismal wear.
Gabbana says this on how he based his research, “I didn’t know much about the world, but Domenico’s brother has three children ages two to six.”
