Vintage graphic t-shirt designer Junk Food Clothing has sealed a deal with Gap Kids for a new collection of merchandise.

According to California Apparel News, the Junk Food Loves Gap Kids line will be tested in 131 Gap Kids outlets across the US. The t-shirts will boast graphics from the likes of Hello Kitty, Peanuts, DC Comics and Star Wars.

If the line is a hit, it will be rolled out to 600 locations.

"Graphic tees are one of the hottest trends in children's apparel right now," said Pam Wallack, president of Baby Gap and Gap Kids. "Junk Food's vintage designs are something that both kids and their parents connect with."

The Junk Food label started in 1997 and its products are now sold at more than 4,000 stores across the world. Jennifer Aniston wore Junk Food's 'Cookie Monster' t-shirt during the last episode of Friends in 2004.
