Gabrielle Union's baby clothing line inspired by her daughter

Gabrielle Union's new baby fashion line is inspired by her five-month-old daughter Kaavia.

The She's All That star will release the Kaavi James by Gabrielle Union capsule collection exclusively through New York & Company on Monday (06May19).

Speaking to WWD, the actress explained that the latest project felt like a "natural progression" and a reflection of where she is in her life right now.

"My collection is inspired by my daughter, Kaavia," she confessed. "I wanted to create a baby collection because it was a natural progression where I am in my life now, and it has always been important to me to make sure that the collections that I design reflect a part of me and are true to what I think many women can relate to."

The line features fleecy pants and coveralls, cotton-printed dresses, T-shirts and onesies available in sizes ranging between 0 to 24 months. There is also a sweater set that features Kaavi's dog, Tre.

The 46-year-old went on to reflect on the similarities between the new line and her existing womenswear range, and shared that both projects were created to offer clothes that are stylish, affordable and accessible to everyone.

"My women's wear clothing objective has always been to empower women and now I'm thinking about those exact same women with babies that are doing it all and want to dress their children in affordable, comfortable clothes," the America's Got Talent judge stated. "I wanted to create pieces that are all-inclusive - that both girls and boys could wear - and that were fun."
