Uhm...Seriously?


One of my favorite things to read is New York Magazine. I get it at home and surf the website pretty regularly. I typically trust their fashion judgement and adore "the Cut" blog.

BUT... Houston we have a problem, here.

Not with NY Mag or anything, just the subject matter of this particular article. This nearly made me break out in HIVES.

So, you know how Lindsay Lohan (Queen of the Leggings-As-Pants trend - she should be shot just for this travesty) has her very own line of leggings? Oh, you don't? Ohhhh. That's right, I forgot... MOST PEOPLE DON'T PAY ATTENTION TO LEGGINGS THAT COST MORE THAN $100. And UGLY leggings at that.

Well, just FYI - Ms. Loca Lohan does, in fact, have her very own line of "luxury" (AKA ugly/torn/bedazzled/studded/patched/padded/etc) leggings that cost more than you even want to know. I don't personally know anyone who has purchased any of these lovely items, however it looks like somebody is buying that crap since the 6126 line is being expanded!

Santa Claus just keeps right on giving this year, doesn't he?

Here are the first sketches of the new pieces:


My only words are: Why? WHY? WHY, dear God, WHY??

[Check out this slide show from WWD for additional sketches and descriptions of all the items]

The 6126 line is now growing from various styles of modal/lace/crap leggings to contemporary clothes. The full clothing line will launch next year, and guess what! They're planning to attempt global domination with cosmetics, shoes, handbags, and jewelry in 2011!

I will pause so you can celebrate appropriately.

Done? Kay. Good.

Now... Is this a joke? Like...no, really, is it?

Does the world actually need yet another contemporary line of crap being represented by an out-of-control starlet who hasn't made any decent contributions to society in years? And get this, the production company for this line? None other than DNAM Apparel - producer of Ed Hardy! Guess Ed will have some company in the Tacky-Shit Department.

And honestly... Who wants to be like Lindsay Lohan anymore? I just don't understand. She's a hot mess in every aspect of her life. Her collaboration with Ungaro was a DISASTER, and yet somehow she's still at the designer while their President and CEO resigned (maybe from the shame from bringing LiLo on in the first place?).

I just don't get it. I really don't.

Do you? Does anyone like her line of leggings? Am I just missing the true fashion of this or something?

Oy. Vay. That is all I can say.

To quote you "Oh. Em. Gee!!!" Who would want to wear those scrappy, ripped, bedazzeled... crap... I'm at a loss - seriously, at a loss...

On another note - have you ever heard when the Rachel Zoe line is coming out? That I would like to see.

Oy. A sure sign of the apocalypse! I haven't heard anything about timing yet, but I read somewhere that it could potentially be called "I Die". Really? Turning your catch phrase into a line? Unnecessary.

I believe it's only a licensing deal though, so I'm not sure she'll have much input in the actual designing. That's probably a good thing!

Have they learned nothing from the Ungaro debauchery?! When the founder of the house calls the collection a disaster, then you have to take it seriously. Honestly, does anyone believe that this girl is actually designing the stuff herself? Je le crois pas.

I don't believe it, either! It's amazing to me that people still put that much stock in the Lohan brand. She's a walking disaster with absolutely no design capabilities. They try to emphasize that she picks out every fabric and button and tries everything on before it's made... Uhm, that's not hard when you have a design team (even a crappy one) that brings two or three options and you just pick one. Ridiculous. All of it is ridiculous!
