There are lots of exciting things happening at one of the most trusted kids’ clothing brands, Carter’s! Just today, the company announced its partnership with a brand new CMO — that’s “Chief Mom Officer” — celebrity mom of 3, Hilary Duff.

“At Carter’s, we understand what it means to be a parent, better than any other brand, and nobody embodies this spirit more than Hilary Duff,” said Jeff Jenkins, Executive Vice President of Global Marketing at Carter’s, in a press release. “Not only is Hilary talented but she’s also incredibly relatable, as a mom of three who openly shares her parenting journey with her community.”

Duff’s new role is unprecedented at Carter’s; this is the first time the brand has collaborated with a celebrity mom to bring both her parenting expertise and keen eye for style to their design table. Her exclusive capsule collection, Hilary Duff x Carter’s, will release this fall — and it’s going to be adorable. According to Women’s Wear Daily, we can expect to see a lot of neutrals, some plaids, wide stripes, and some pops of color, along with on-trend styles like Fair Isle sweaters, shackets, and paper bag pants. “Honestly, it looks like all stuff that I would wear, all shrunken down in size,” Duff said.

In designing her collection, Duff was sure to choose kid-friendly fabrics, too. “I have three children who don’t want hard pants or itchy sweaters,” she said. (Honestly? Same.) And because Carter’s is known for how easy it makes choosing an outfit and getting kids dressed, the collaboration was a natural fit for Duff, who wanted to simplify the process for moms like her who are “in the throes of motherhood.”

A second collection will follow in early 2023 (you can see more about the design process here).
