With news that Jean Paul Gaultier is launching a line of kidswear, tykes have morphed into mini-trendsetters. From Shiloh's skull-patterned moccasins to Malia's Election Night dress, highly styled kids can cause stores to sell out of "It" items as quickly as their famous parents. And retailers have taken notice: Macy's just announced that they'll be stocking Tommy Hilfiger's relaunched children's line next season, and Ralph Lauren converted his Bleecker Street women's store into a children's boutique last month.
