Many guests were disappointed that rock mom-turned-designer Gwen Stefani was not present for L.A.M.B.’s spring collection runway show at New York Fashion Week. However, no one was disappointed with the collection’s young, fun, and energetic designs. Stefani offered that the themes for the collection were the Rat Pack, high voltage, and maharaja.
Stefani launched her “flirty rocker label” in 2004 and has been getting rave reviews since. The label is influenced by South American and Asian trends which is present in every collection. For spring 2012, Stefani focused on geometric prints, plaids, and a color palette of black, white, gray, and various shades of green. The designs included slouchy jumpsuits, mini-skirts and mod frocks, and cropped, wide-leg trousers. There were also a number of matching jacket and shorts/pants sets that worked well together. Typically, we don’t think of matching sets as casual, young, and fresh but leave it to Stefani to make these street-smart designs flirty and hip, working fabulously together. For accessories, the models sashayed down the runway with oversized, colorful bags and bright, sky-high platforms.
What we love about Stefani’s L.A.M.B. label is that it truly is a reflection of her individual style. She’s said that the designs reflect her personal taste and it is apparent in each sassy and hip collection. The spring 2012 collection is a mixture of fresh fashion with an urban edge. Rock on Gwen.
