Diane Von Furstenburg for Baby Gap

Posted by Lily Kay at 3:05 PM

I will admit I was pretty excited to find out a while back that Diane Von Furstenburg was going to design a collection of baby and toddler clothes for Gap. I love Gap for my little one and I love to drool over DVF collections for women. I anxiously awaited the clothing release and told myself I would purchase 3 items from the collection for Baby Z. Yes, I told myself this even before seeing the collection itself. I am a bit of a shopping junkie when it comes to certain items. The collection was released and I hurriedly logged onto Gap.com, clicked the Infant Girl tab and voila...brightly colored DVF baby items were staring at me from the screen.


The collection consists of modern designed dresses and one pieces that are brightly colored in almost neon like hues.The Wrap Rompers looked adorable but I couldn't get over the pricing on these. Was it really worth $45.00 for the infant sizing or $60.00 for the toddler sizing?


I love these banded print dresses the most out of the collection however I felt the price to be a bit steep. Yes I know its a designer collaboration but I just assumed it would be priced just a tad lower since Gap was the market house for these items. I decided I would go on over to Gap to check out the entire collection as parts of it were already sold out online shortly after it was released. Sadly, I walked out empty handed. The dresses were very adorable but I didn't feel they were worth their hefty price tag. The quality of the wrap dress did not meet my expectations. I still love the banded print dresses and felt that they were of good quality but decided to take my chances on seeing if they will go on sale or not. I saw an adorable pair of baby shoes that looked like they were made very well at under $30.00 but they were out of the size I needed.

Overall, I felt that this line was unique in appearance but the quality was not worth the price in my opinion. Of course if any of these items go on sale I might just snatch up a few pieces. Did you purchase anything from this line? You can visit this collection at Baby Gap.
