the l.a.m.b. fall 2012 collection

   

 

 

since i’m coming down with a case of the fashion week flu (well, a cold), the only show i went to yesterday was that of gwen stefani’s l.a.m.b.. i was not a huge fan of the brand last season and was curious to see what the singer-turned-designer had cooked up for fall 2012. prior to the show, jessie and i discussed how many of the trends seen at fashion week had already been done and overdone before; i hoped that this line who display something new. though the first few looks were a bit questionable, a majority of the collection was fresh and modern. there were lots of collars, which i am loving lately, and a majority of the pieces were black, gray, and neon green with a sporadic pop of red in front of a backdrop of a manhattan-inspired collage.

in terms of beauty, i particularly loved the retro bouffants and cat-eye frames.

this l.a.m.b. model was giving me some major face.

the l.a.m.b. spring 2012 collection

 

 

admittedly, i’m a little late to the l.a.m.b. party. did i know that gwen stefani had created an empire? of course. did i know that she has been fairly on-trend for more than a few seasons? well, yeah. but did i know that (according to loyal fans) the quality of her pieces is consistently on-point and that they outlast the seasons? i didn’t.

spring 2012 was a presentation, rather than a runway show, and i was more than happy to get up close and personal with the clothes and accessories. the patterns shown exhibited a lot of tribal influence, yet the shapes were altogether classic — cropped slacks, flowing maxi dresses, modern jumpsuits and wearable jackets.
