Versace Jumps On The Fancy Children's Clothing Bandwagon

Last week, Alber Elbaz and Lanvin announced that they would release a super luxurious line of children's clothing next fall, and another famed fashion house is following suit. Italian powerhouse Versace revealed that it will unveil Young Versace, its debut collection for boys and girls aged from 0-12, for the Spring/Summer 2012 season.

No word on price points yet (unlike Lanvin, who proudly stated that fabrics in the kids' line could cost as much as 10 times as those normally used for children’s clothing) but judging by the initial images, the Versace apples don't fall from the tree. These clothes certainly get across the house's signature glamour with a "youthful rock 'n' roll twist."

Even the sketches are sassy! Check out the little boy casually posing in the sequined hoodie, the girls giving face in the black leather and combat boots, and we even spot a Versace temporary tattoo.

Spring 2011 Trend: Retro Prep

If you want to know how to wear shorts for spring, the key is to go big or go home! Take risks with fabrications, like the striped knit shorts from Timo Weiland. Don’t be afraid to mix prints like the striped Marni Cardigan paired with the puzzle print DVF top. As long as the colors compliment one another you will be on your way to creating a lust-worthy ensemble.

Use carefully chosen accessories to accent and amp up your outfit. Notable pieces for this spring are ‘70s inspired two-toned sunnies, whimsical stacked bangles in a variety of hues and printed stacked wedges.
