Remember how last week I posted a diatribe on why celebritywear is dead and I went through the motions trying to illustrate the hows and whys using Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag as examples? Well I may have to make a general correction and re-state for the record. So here goes. For the record celebritywear is truly dead WITH THE EXCEPTION of: L.A.M.B., Edun and Whatever Diddy is doing with Sean John (apparently he just purchased Enyce from Liz Claiborne; Sean John is thriving and owns Zac Posen)
But the for the purposes of this post here’s why Gwen Stefani’s L.A.M.B. is the shit. Normally something is just not right with a celebrity’s collection. Either they take something pre-existin in their closet and just add an accent and call it a part of their “new” collection. Conversely, they may create something completely new, but it just looks bad. Stefani and/or the designers behind L.A.M.B. have created accessories (namely the shoes you see above) that are need to haves. The ornately designed strappy is particularly beautiful to look at, not to mention wear. So Ms. Stefani, I am happy not only to mention your collection, but I am emptying my wallet in this time of recession as we speak.
Reports of celebritywear’s demise has been exaggerated, but not my much.
