Prince George may only be two years old but the young prince has already become a fashion icon and inspiration for designers.
Prince William and Princess Kate’s oldest son served as an inspiration for a baby wear line that was created in honor of Prince George’s grandmother, the late Princess Diana, People magazine reported. The baby wear line named the Diana Collection was designed by Cecile Reinaud of Seraphine, whose maternity line was one of Princess Kate’s go-to fashion wear during her pregnancy. The French born designer told the magazine that the young royal prince “has a big influence” on various children’s wear lines available worldwide. "Every children's wear designer surely takes some inspiration from him!" Reinaud stated.
Apart from Prince George, Reinaud revealed that she also took inspiration from Princess Charlotte. She even predicted that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s baby daughter will grow up to be a “fashion icon” herself. “She is certainly a gorgeous baby girl and [George] is so cute and full of personality – his wardrobe reflects that well,” Reinaud told People magazine.
The recently released Diana Collection features a unique tartan design with its fabric woven in Scotland by Lochcarron to honor the late Princess Diana. For the special collection, Reinaud also collaborated with the Diana Award charity, according to People magazine. Some of the designs in the Diana Collection include cardigans, rompers, knee socks, as well as baby dresses that have been infused with a hint of Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s signature fashion pieces.
Reinaud also shared that the Diana Collection has already become a hit in the U.K., as well as other markets such as China, U.S. and Europe. "Lots of international department stores are going to stock it from Autumn 2016 and we are already opening a corner in Galleries Lafayette in Paris this spring – the French love it so much!" the Seraphine designer said.
Meanwhile, the two royal siblings appear to be taking after their mother Princess Kate for being a fashion icon. However, Prince George is set to follow Prince William’s footsteps. The young royal prince will soon inherit a miniature Aston Martin car which his father Prince William played with. The half size V8 Volante was gifted to Prince Charles in 1988 for his sons Prince William and Prince Harry. The miniature car was recently pulled out of the Sandringham Museum to undergo repairs and will be handed down to Prince George as soon as he is old enough to drive it.
Prince William first drove the mini Aston Martin car when he was six years old, while Prince George’s uncle Prince Harry drove it when he was four. Royal watchers are expecting the toy car to be given to Prince George in around a year’s time.
