NYFW : L.A.M.B Fall 2010


I'm a huge fan of Balmain and its military trend. This season, Gwen Stefani also incorporated the Military trend into her Fall 2010 collection. Although the jeans (Above, 3rd photo) were much like Balmain's, I really liked the rest and I've got to say its SO MUCH BETTER than Balmain's slash tees which I'm sure you'll be paying more than 50% lesser.

I'm also in love with the belts which she uses them around the upper body.
Favorite look? 2 and 3. I can totally imagine Gwen wearing every single look. Very very sexy.


Drop-crotch, loose tops, biker boots and leather were also seen throughout the collection. The designer herself was also wearing her newest collection. Gwen Stefani herself also said : “It’s all about what I want to wear really,”. View L.A.M.B's whole collection on style.com.

Style.com's Review by Romney Leader :
Gwen Stefani won't let a little last-minute emergency—as in, half of the Fall collection getting stuck in transit due to the blizzard—get her down. "We've had to scrape together what we can," she said in a preview the day before her L.A.M.B. presentation, "but it's actually forced us to be even more creative." Case in point: a "vest" she strung together on the fly by linking up several leather belts.

Explaining the mood this season, she ticked off a checklist of tried-and-true Gwen references: "vintage, boudoir, military, fifties, sexy, and futuristic." Making it all work might sound like a tall order, but the mash-up was signature Stefani, right down to the models' pinup hair and scarlet lips. Among the more successful looks was a tailored military jacket worn with skinny houndstooth jeans, a twill and boiled-wool trenchcoat, and a chic black ponte-and-leather body-con dress. If the collection wasn't exactly concise, the variety and uniqueness of many of the pieces will get them noticed on the sales floor. And, no, you don't have to be a ska punk to pull them off.

  1. Can we please talk about that belted leather bustier?! IT'S GOREGEOUS, TASTEFUL, etc etc.

    but yeah. I agree with what you said about the collection being similar to Balmain (esp that jacket she's wearing).
