Prince George Turns 1, Makes Headlines

-------

prince-george-birthdayIn one short year, the cherub-cheeked Prince George has stolen our hearts and the crown for best-dressed royal baby. The trendy toddler, who seems to prefer striped overalls and nautical prints, has already worn more stylish duds in his first year than most do in a lifetime. We’d imagine that the regal tot received at least a few new ensembles on this very special day, but due to his lack of an Instagram account, we can’t be certain. Here’s to a happy birthday, and many more years of sartorial stardom.

And The Royal Baby Wore Vintage (Kind Of)

To our grave disappointment, Prince George will not be wearing custom Alexander McQueen to his upcoming christening. Rather, the royal family has enlisted the queen’s couturier, Angela Kelly, to reproduce the royal baby gown that has been worn by sixty regal wee ones since it was created by Janet Sutherland for Queen Victoria’s oldest daughter in 1841 (at 172 years old, the original is apparently too delicate to be donned by His Highness). The Sunday Times reports that Jason Bell—a lensman known for his spreads in GQ, Vanity Fair, and more—has been named as the official christening photographer. However, we hope that Mario Testino will at least get an invite to the post-ceremony party.

Issa x Banana Republic

“Retail kismet” was how creative director Simon Kneen described the timing of the Banana Republic Issa London Collection, which debuted yesterday with an event at the retailer’s Soho flagship. The launch comes just two weeks after the world’s royal fever was reignited with the birth of Prince George. Kate Middleton put Issa on the map in 2010, when she announced her engagement to Prince William while wearing a teal wrap dress by the London label. Her frock, of course, sold out straight away. A similar style is featured in the collaborative capsule, and Kneen was happy to report that the BR version, too, sold out almost immediately. (Compared to Kate’s original, which went for over $500, the BR version will only set customers back $130.) That look wasn’t the only highlight in the new lineup, which included a range of easy day dresses in playful prints and bright colors, as well as statement-making costume jewelry, envelope clutches, and T-strap sandals. “The thing that drew us to Issa is its iconic silhouette, which works so beautifully on so many different body types. It’s clingy in all the right places and soft where you want it to be,” said Kneen, who pointed out other favorites, like an intarsia-knit shift and a kimono-sleeve number with an allover pop-art zebra pattern. “I call it ‘human camouflage,’” he said. The red telephone box and classically clad Beefeaters stationed outside of the store got shoppers in the U.K. spirit.
