LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- OK… what is going on around here? There are seven! Yes seven! Kids on the way here in the Access Hollywood offices.
Lots of new parents who will quickly learn all about the temptations of cute children’s clothing.
One place that gobbles up my paycheck every time I walk in is Gymboree, a fave of Hollywood moms Jessica Alba, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Rutherford, Angie Harmon and Tori Spelling.
“Our Spring collections are classic and vibrant,” says Jane Mangan, Vice President of Merchandising for The Gymboree Corporation, who reveals the chain’s five big trends for Spring.
GINGHAM Gingham checks are huge this year and come in all sizes and colors. We love gingham for both boys and girls – it is a fun, fresh, all American look!
PLAID Plaid continues to have a huge presence in our lines. It can be integrated into your child’s wardrobe as a single piece or mixed into patchwork. Plaid isn’t just for tops, your child’s shorts, dresses and even shoes would look great in a plaid print! We love to use it in surprising ways.
PREPPY CLASSIC LOOKS When parting with their hard earned cash right now, our customers appreciate durable, long lasting clothing. They want a good investment and Gymboree has the high quality and classic styling parents want when looking to hand down the clothing to younger siblings someday.
NEW PROPORTIONS This Spring, we are offering a great deal of new fashionable looks that play with proportions. For girls, we love skinny jeans and tunic style dresses that can double as tops. We also offer adorable boyfriend styles in cardigans and belted jeans.
SPECIAL OCCASION STYLE Most Spring schedules include special occasions like weddings, garden parties and Easter. We have fresh, bright colored party dresses for girls in gorgeous pinks, greens and oranges. For boys, we have strong plaids, argyles and seersuckers. We also offer some matching collections between boy and girl, and even mom and dad, for special family dressing.
