Christian Dior, Karl Lagerfeld, Vera Wang and others proposed one-of-a-kind gifts for the future king.
WWD asked a number of designers what gifts they would give the royal baby, and designers like Christian Dior and Karl Lagerfeld proposed one-of-a-kind items for the future king.
For example, Vera Wang drew a royal rattle, and Kenneth Cole suggested a baby carriage in the shape of a shoe. Dior told WWD:
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.
