L.A.M.B. opened at New York Fashion Week with a BANG!
I’ve read article upon article upon article about how brilliant the new line up is.
So maybe this is going to turn into a minor rant….
I can’t appreciate anything that L.A.M.B. puts out. I’ve surfed onto the site for the past two years and can’t really say I ever seen a single piece of couture that appealed to me (minus Harajuku Lovers from this equation because I really enjoy that line of kawaii goodies). Granted none of it will fit the Muse’s curvy body however that’s never stopped me from enjoying the look of high end fashion!
First of all I should say I think that Gwen Stefani is one classy lady! Her sense of style is fantastic and I’ve never seen the girl look anything but absolutely chic and fabulous! She’s uber talented, amazingly beautiful, and in the cool kid book for me!
But…her fashion line doesn’t have me bouncing from the ceilings in excitement.
This is hard to say….
Even the shoes aren’t all that fab.
The entire concept of the brand which is inspired by a mad mix of Jamaican rastafarians, English school girls and Orange County teenages sounds like it could result in some awesome, flashy fashion! However, it falls short of the mark for me.
I’m not entirely sure what everyone is getting so hyped about.
To be fair I know I’m basing part of this rant on her website over the course of the last two years or so. To backup my rant I googled around to locate images from the new line up that was displayed at fashion week that everyone is finding so exciting and brilliant and Gwen Stefani is a God in the fashion industry, etc…etc…(maybe I made the God part up but it sounded good for effect)…
Well I came across quite a few tidbits and again, not so impressed.
I can’t really get excited about a line that has a lamb advertising the clothing. Since I’m on the advertising end doesn’t L.A.M.B. stand for Love, Angel, Music, Baby? This obviously means that Gwen was sorta kinda in a frame of mind promoting her latest CD at the time this “couture” (I use the term loosely) line was introduced.
Ok I guess my rant is over.
I don’t personally mean to attack the line but I just can’t take this all seriously and I’m somewhat shocked that it’s gotten the publicity it has and has opened with raving reviews.
In my world it’s somehow like introducing Mary Kate and Ashley’s Walmart clothing lines on a New York Fashion Runway.
That’s my 2 cents of the day!
What’s your take? Am I being too harsh? Talk to me!
