Lady like with an edge for L.A.M.B. at New York Fashion Week Fall 2012
Day three of New York Fashion Week saw style icon Gwen Stefani, present her Fall 2012 collection for her fashion line L.A.M.B. "L.A.M.B. represents all things that I love. It's very much about my style and how I put things together. L.A.M.B. is a line that I want to wear every day," explains Gwen.
Similarly to Charlotte Ronson who showed earlier this week, it appears the outspoken music star is feeling a little more grown up for Fall 2012. Lady like luxe with a touch of Gwen's trademark edge was the order of the day.
It was clear to see that Stefani's style was never far from the catwalk, but there was a refined reference to 1950's femininity in the mix too. Hair was pulled back into retro style beehives with a messy edge, a style somewhat familiar to Stefani herself. There was a feeling of formal fashion-ability about the collection with matching checkerd two pieces, tailed suit trousers and pencil style mini skirts. Prints mainly stuck to the traditional feel with check, oversized dogtooth and tweed prevailing but an injection of pixelated modern patterns made everything feel modern. It was a similar story when it came to colour - the collection was mainly made up of dark hues of rust red, greys and dark greens but flashes of neon yellow brought the collection back to the now.
Lady bags, button up collars and retro style glasses frames were threaded throughout the collection which delivered the message loud and clear whilst masculine tailoring on outerwear brought it back once again. Overall a super wearable collection which not only can we see Gwen, and other celebrity equivalents wearing next season, but heads in a direction we're liking.
