It's not uncommon for four-year-olds to own one or two pieces of clothing that are intended to match their mother's. Historically, we've seen this most often with mommy-and-me pajama sets, but the trend has also, weirdly, filtered down to young girls and their American Girl dolls. But what about a youth as fiscally secure as Blue Ivy Carter, whose parents have an estimated, oh, $1 billion net worth? Not just any old Laura Ashley nightgown will do, obviously — so how about some sensible, custom-made Gucci to coordinate with Beyoncé? Sure!
On Thursday, the "Lemonade"-r posted a clip on Instagram that shows herself and Blue Ivy wearing matching jean jackets surely designed by Alessandro Michele over at the Italian fashion house. The light-washed, patchwork denim has been a signature of Gucci's aesthetic since Michele took the creative reins, and they do sell similar models for kid-sized humans. (For interested parties: A Google search quickly brought me to this $860 coat, which isn't too far off from Blue Ivy's version right here.)
Is it inappropriate to call a piece of children's clothing "badass?" I hope not, because that's exactly what this jacket is: a badass, belated Mother's Day gift to us all.
