Closing out New York Fashion Week, Gwen Stefani’s L.A.M.B Fall 2011 collection proves that indecisiveness can sometimes have its merits. The collection, a fusion of six mini collections, demonstrates that you can be a new type of girl almost every day of the week with no need to be boxed into a single type.
So here goes my week according to Gwen … “Soldier Girl” Monday, has me wearing green and khaki tightly tailored looks such as wrap trench coats, twill and leather menswear cropped pants, ties, shearling jackets, camouflage pleated skirts and, to top it off, chic khaki headscarves. “Ragamuffin Girl”
Tuesday has me wearing bright colored menswear inspired shirts, Navajo-inspired printed dresses, skirts, and accessories, and a rasta hat. On “London Girl” Wednesday I am a wearing menswear inspired pieces such as pants, shirts, and ties; leather pants; and plaid suits, skirts, and shift dresses galore.”Buffalo Girl” Thursday has me wearing southwest knits and long wool trenches over long camel colored skirts and wool pants. On “Mod Girl” Friday, I am wearing minimalistic dresses and blouses in black and white prints such as polka dots and strips.
“Glamour Girl” Saturday is all about the 70s inspired long black dresses with gold accessories. With only six mini collections, Sunday is all about the man of the hour, Gwen’s son Kingston who walked down the runway with his mother— he truly is the cutest best clothed celeb kid so why not try for Kingston Sunday?
