Ralph Lauren Shows Children’s Collection At Central Park Zoo

For Ralph Lauren, it’s more fun to never grow up. The designer presented his kids’ collection Wednesday night at the Central Park Zoo in New York City to coincide with the upcoming movie “Pan,” the newest take on Disney’s classic “Peter Pan.”

The show featured Levi Miller, who plays Peter in the movie. Maddie Ziegler — the star of Lifetime’s “Dance Moms” as well as Sia’s music video for “Chandelier” — walked the runway with her younger sister, Mackenzie. Rachel Zoe’s four-year-old son, Skyler Morrison, also modeled.

The show benefited Ralph Lauren’s Children’s Literacy Program, which supports education programs worldwide. A new capsule collection featuring a specially designed Polo Pony promotes literacy in 12 languages. Nonprofit organization Reach Out and Read will receive 25 percent of the proceeds.

The pint-sized models wore a range of shoe styles, including boots with a buckle closure across the vamp, high-top sneakers in glitter and plaid, cheetah-print flats, motorcycle boots and knee-high duck boots. Some of the kids wore Peter Pan’s signature tri-corner hat as a cheeky nod to the movie.

 

In addition to Miller, “Pan” has a stacked cast that includes Cara Delevingne, Amanda Seyfried, Hugh Jackman and Rooney Mara. The movie hits theaters Oct. 9. The collection is available on RalphLauren.com.
