Stella Mccartney's latest kidswear collection was inspired by her childhood.
The fashion designer - daughter of Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney and his late wife Linda - recently launched her second range for Gap Kids and wanted the line to be colourful, complete with different fabrics and prints.
She said: "For me this collection is all about mixing and matching. I guess that is how I was brought up. When I was little like this, my parents just shoved stuff onto us. I had some nice French clothes, but it wasn't at all considered. I wasn't a pristine kid."
The range includes a fish-print summer dress, crocheted tops, skinny jeans, an embroidered pale blue cowboy shirt and glow-in-the-dark pyjamas.
But the mother-of-three was keen to make sure they were clothes children could wear time and time again without parents worrying whether they would get ruined.
She told the Sunday Telegraph: "There is no excuse for bad colours. And there is no reason why a fabric shouldn't have the softest touch, especially when you are doing children's wear. Fabrics need to wear well - there is no point saying to a child they can only wear this once, or that they need to behave when wearing it."
