Celebrity | Gwen Stefani | L.A.M.B. Signature Handbag
Fashion Designer / Music Artist Gwen Stefani was been spotted in London a couple nights ago, out for a late night of Italian dining at Locanda Locatelli. Bag for the occasion was a handbag from her own L.A.M.B. line. She named the line LAMB because she called everybody ‘lamb’ (interesting) so it just seemed to fit. Later she made the letters L.A.M.B. stand for Love. Angel. Music. Baby. also the name of her first solo album.
Tim Schifter described the idea behind the collection was to “create something timeless, something classic and with an irreverent twist. That’s why going into the design process, we came up with a concept that we really tried to stick with as we came up with the collection group: style after style, leather after leather. The bags themselves are closer to the European luxury feeling than the American contemporary handbag category. I think they’re highly differentiated but priced in the contemporary. Gwen’s unique personal take on fashion incorporated her signature elements like Rasta colors and the old English lettering. For spring, we’re incorporating velvet into the collection. For this first launch, there are two collections – the Signature collection and the leather collection which is called Love. The reaction has been phenomenal. We were going to launch it for Spring 2007 delivery but the retailers wanted it for holiday.” (thedaily.com)

This will be perfect timing for the Holiday shopping season. Location – these bags will be available at stores such as eluxury.com, Nordstroms, Bloomingdales, Henri Bendel’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Holt-Renfrew in Canada.
