Like millions of other women around the world, I own several of Diane von Furstenberg’s eponymous wrap dresses (one of which I bought for a song in the Woodbury Commons outlet, just outside New York).
On reflection I think I probably love her more for her use of the retro prints that she sometimes makes them in than for the cut of the dresses themselves.
If you vaguely agree and have either a daughter or know a child you may only even half like, then hurry up and log on to Gap to snap up some of her creations she’s done for her collaboration with them (Gap Kids and Baby Gap that is….sadly the collection is only for children, and girls at that).
I’ve just gone online and bought this (they say they’ve nearly sold out of them on the .com site but on gap.co.uk there are still masses of sizes left)
as well as this:
…for my child, although I hasten to add I did toy with ordering an additional wrap dress in an XXL kids size (must be for around 16 years old) but can’t face another cheongsam moment, so refrained.
I ordered mine on the UK site (old habits die hard) and will pick them up in June when I’m next visiting, but gap.com ships to Singapore so you can have them delivered directly to your door (for only a fraction more).
