The last few months haven't been the easiest for Heidi Klim since the announcement of her split with Seal but it looks like the Danish model is throwing herself into work. Yesterday she announced that she has partnered with Babies 'R' Us on a collection for children. Rather than just focusing on clothes, the collection also features nursery essentials.
'I made beds, curtains, blankets, washcloths, bath toys, wall decals, lamps, rugs, hampers, stuffed animals, security blankets and night lights,' she told WWD. 'If you think about the nursery, I’m doing everything.' Naturally Klum cites her children as the inspiration for the line saying: 'I know a lot about dinosaurs. I’ve tried to come up with really cute magical things, like dinosaur footprints.' She continued: 'I think it’s something that stimulates brain development.'
The announcement ironically came on the same day the Times reported that designer kids clothes are a waste of time. According t Cathy Horyn, despite the prevalence of designer kids' ranges, much of the clothes aren't made well and according to children's wear designer Rachel Ridley, 'some of their fabrics are mediocre.'
At present the prices of Klum's range are unknown but nonetheless, what do you think about designer children's wear? Would you buy it for your nearest and dearest?
