Enlisted by WWD to create their own fantasy gifts for the new royal baby, a mixture of big name designers got artistic and creative, imagining up lavish presents they’d love to send to the newborn. Dior, Christian Lacroix, Vera Wang, Dsquared2 and Huishan Zhang all dreamed up beautiful presents including toys, rattles, prams and much more. Chanel head designer Karl Lagerfeld had a funny play on words, creating a pacifier named the ‘Royal Dummy’ for the future king who is yet to have his name revealed to the public.
Fashion house Dior had a vintage-inspired whimsical approach, commenting:
“Like fairies leaning over a cradle, Baby Dior was inspired by Mr. Dior’s lucky charms to adorn the future newborn’s outfits, cashmere knitting, coming in a beautiful leather suitcase, was twisted with four-leaf clovers to keep the baby warm. Each piece, embellished with embroideries and lace, was delicately handmade, requiring hours of work.”
