L.A.M.B. Spring 2012 Collection

Though I love seeing Gwen Stefani walk the end of her Mercedes Benz Fashion Week shows, I’m very happy she did a presentation this season, it gave everyone a chance to get really take in the beauty of her collection. As usual, Gwen’s love of fun prints were prevalent in her Spring 2012 much to my joy – bold stripes, zig zag prints, tribal, plaid, cotton eyelets, etc were presented in dresses, shorts, jackets, etc


Naturally the collection was the usual sexy sporty-chic that we love about Gwen’s personal style – though her fabric choices were bold, her silhouettes were very easy and comfortable. Looks that can easily go from day to night with quick accessory changes.

Now on to her accessories, to say I have a love of Gwen Stefani’s shoes is a colossal understatement (though I currently own more of her handbags than her shoes), I drooled over each and every shoe and I’m not ashamed to state that…I mean see below:

Bravo to Gwen Stefani for another great collection. I can’t wait for spring.

L.A.M.B Spring 2011 Collection

Set to Reggae music and even a West Indian nursery rhyme, Gwen Stephanie left Tokyo and took us to Mother Africa for the L.A.M.B Spring 2011 Collection. Of course I’m not surprised by her choice of music – Gwen Stefani loves Jamaica and with her sons being named Kingston and Nesta (Zuma’s middle name) but the influence for her clothing was all African prints called Ankara, with a few plaid and other patterns (like gingham) mixed in.

 

What is Ankara? “Ankara are bold, vibrant patterns of rich colorful designs. Ankara fabric is mostly made of 100% cotton or cotton poly blend. Originally the wax resist dyed fabrics were exported to the Gold Coast and spread over West Africa into Central Africa and were largely produced in Nigeria.”

Gwen Stefani’s collection is strong and sexy; the strength of the designs comes through in the cool silhouettes which is a mix of body conscious pieces, volume and an urbanized twist to sleek lines. Like the fabrication, it takes a bold personality to wear one of Gwen’s designs. Do you have it in you?
