Gwen Stefani is adding high-end handbags to its L.A.M.B. label
According to WWD, the
four-year-old firm, whose accessories are produced in partnership with
Schifter + Partners, has launched a Black Label line called Aston,
hitting stores this fall.
The collection retails from $525 for a
clutch to $1,495 for a limited edition carryall and is inspired by
vintage British sports cars. With style names such as the Lotus and
Winston, the Aston bags feature special detailing such as layers of
perforated and pebble-grain leather mixed with patent leather piping
and suede strips. Each of the eight styles is equipped with black and
gray striped lining, gunmetal hardware and matte black hangtags.
Aston collection will be available in limited distribution at the top
35 of L.A.M.B.’s 250 doors, including certain Nordstrom and
Bloomingdale’s locations as well as Intermix and Henri Bendel.The bags will
also sell on eluxury as well as appear in the luxury catalogue
"I love the designing process for the handbags," said Stefani. "It’s
always evolving and changing each season. This season I loved mixing
different materials like leather and suede and then putting the
L.A.M.B. twist on it….I look forward to expanding the L.A.M.B. brand
Personally, I wouldn’t buy a regular L.A.M.B. bag, so I don’t see myself buying one of these. Would/will you? Leave a comment.
