The limited-edition range, inspired by the tradition of ‘hand-me-downs’ and family heirlooms, has been fashioned from Parker’s childhood clothing archives, and will include pieces such as: denim jeans with floral embellishments, knit rabbit-print sweaters, furry backpacks, pink dresses and striped rugby shirts.

Items will retail from US$14.95 to US$78, with the line to be available online and in Gap Kids stores, starting from August 27.

Commenting on the collaboration, Parker told The Hollywood Reporter the range hits a personal note for her: “My mother saved everything I wore as a child, so my daughters wear my hand-me-downs. I just thought it was such a nice way of creating the collection with that in mind.”
