Isaac Mizrahi: My Infant Line Is the ‘Cutest Thing in the World’

Isaac Mizrahi recently announced plans to launch an infant clothing line with bon bébé earlier this month, and the designer promises the collection will be “the cutest thing in the world.”

According to Women’s Wear Daily, the 25-piece collection will include outfits in black and white “meant to be a funny take on sophisticated adult clothing.” It will also debut in department and speciality stores this fall, with girls’ and boys’ clothing expected to follow.

“It’s a special kind of look, a special kind of twist. There’s a dryness to it. I don’t want it to be cutesy, I want it to be wonderful and different,” the the newlywed told PEOPLE recently at a Project Runway All Stars event at New York’s Paley Center.

So why the sudden switch to kids fashion? “I was raised in that business,” said Mizrahi. “My father was a childrenswear manufacturer, and my showroom is in that wonderful showroom he worked in for years, in a building on 34th Street [in New York].”

“The collection will be the cutest thing in the world.” “I don’t want it to be cutesy.” Um. What?
