Avril Lavigne Abbey Dawn Collection at Kohl’s

  • Pin it

As if finding style-offending clothes was a problem! Avril Lavigne has discovered her inner designer and, behold! she’s unleashing it!

Abbey Dawn is “a juniors lifestyle brand” (am I losing something here? What’s a juniors lifestyle brand? Emphasizing lifestyle..?) programmed to see the store’s light in July (for the back-to-school usual frenzy) and to renew its featured designed pieces every 60 days. So not only the monster’s head gonna pop up! it’s regenerating himself! What a glorious future ahead!

Avril Lavigne Mini Skirt and High Heels

And the thing I love the most about press releases is you always get a strong insight on things to come: “Expected to blend an authentic rock ’n’ roll attitude with a feminine edge”. Sure, we’re talking juniors lifestyle, it’s natural that we engage in a mixed-up discussion. About feminism and entertainment. (oh, I forgot money – the line will sell from $24-$48)

Because Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend – there will be jewelry involved in this Abbey Dawn lifestyle thing! (and we are promised that other categories will be added later!)
Am I looking at this from an over-conservative point of view?

Avril Lavigne clothes for teens Abbey Dawn

After a few years since it was first announced, Abbey Dawn was even presented on the New York Fashion Week catwalk in 2012. The Spring Summer 2013 collection was sent down the runway and although the same continuity promises were made, the brand seems to have vanished from the stores (the contract with Kohl’s expired) and the internet altogether (the video below presents an interview with the singer from the event).

I would rather take it as a good sign, as consumers sifted through the quality of the design and made the better choice. But I would be just overevaluating Abbey Dawn’s market target: teens and tweens. And should they ever find common-sense clothing actually likable and wearable, the world will definitely turn upside down!

Although even on the brand’s Facebook page the last update was made almost a year (minus a month) to date, keep hope alive! a new, tasteful and discrete clothing collection from Avril Lavigne’s Abbey Dawn will pop up any minute now!

I think the collection will include modern items both for college and High School students.

Undoubtedly, the targeted clients will be amongst High School/College attendants. To me, this kind of collection will always carry a fake air, something prefabricated and using her own career image as a seller trigger for young people is rather easy. The only thing you need is maintaining yourself in the industry. So I think another album is in order.

I think Avril’s “Abbey Dawn” clothing line will do well because, although it may appeal to adults in their 20s, it will also be attractive to teens and tweens who (based on lots of concert reviews) make up a HUGE ratio of her concert audiences. And the price, which you mention in your article, is certainly affordable for that age group too.

And btw- just in case you or your readers are interested – I have an Avril website and a while ago discovered the source for Avril’s childhood nickname “Abbey Dawn” that she’s also using for her clothing line!

If you want to read about and see a couple of photos, it’s here:

hi

#11 yasmin on 08.13.08 at 8:14 pm

I just wanna say that if you have anything bad to say you shouln’t say it because if you are than why are you even on this website. I love Avril. I have all her cds. Her clothes fit my style and I wish I could by everything but I’d still be satisfied if I at least get one cool shirt or anything else. The clothes are quite popular. I love it!

#12 Jakki on 09.02.08 at 2:42 pm

Although this is exactly my style of clothing and I’ve been waiting for someone to catch on to the fact that rock & roll is back so they can create an affordable clothing line for us rockers at heart, I must say the Abbey Dawn clothing line disappoints me. The largest size available to girls is size 13 (which isn’t even a real 13, it’s more like a size 9 or 10). I am a size 14 or 15 but can sometimes, depending on the brand, buy a size 13. Abbey Dawn’s size 13 would barely go up to my thighs, so I know this is an error. I am displeased that Avril Lavigne seems to only want very skinny girls to wear her clothing line. These days girls have so many self esteem issues because of how the main stream media depicts woman as being beautiful if they are anorexic looking (Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, etc.). Avril Lavigne should be a better role model and make her clothing line available to girls of all sizes.

#13 Objective on 09.12.08 at 7:46 pm

To you it may seem horrendous, but that is most likely because it isn’t YOUR style. Do preppy people like all black clothing? Do punks like conservative colors?
I personally like her clothes, and own some. Part of the appeal is mixing them in new and wild ways that express what you’re feeling.

#14 julia on 11.01.08 at 4:02 am

molan los jeans y las camisetas pero toda la ropa de la primera foto no me gusta nada, pero las demás cosas si excepto los pantalones de lunares

#15 Daniele on 11.01.08 at 6:04 pm

Eu sinplismente adorei a coleção da avril roupas super lindas

#16 Chantiily on 11.02.08 at 2:22 pm

ESSA GAROTÃ É PERFEITÃ *–*

#17 Miss Marie!! on 12.15.08 at 11:08 am

Stop dissin’ Avril!!! SHe rocks and maybe she doesn’t know that her sizes are only like that I wear like a size 5/7 so stop it and I am so not anorexic SO THERE!

#38 tas on 07.14.09 at 4:40 pm

i want to see the clothes that she picks out for herself the ones than she walks around in not the clothes that someone tell her to put on at a photo shoot or a coming out party and says the avril lavgine collection if this really is her taste and she likes it why dont you ever see pictures of her going somewhere normal with these clothes on her clothes on the only place you ever see wear her new clothes collection is photoshoot pictures where someone is telling her to i want to see her taste avrils real kinda clothes she would wear

i LOVE her new clothing line and i just bought today a new pair of skinny jeans i really LOVE her style but i am not a total rocker or punk im a combination of everytning preppy, girly, punky, rockish type of girl.

#44 Stephanie on 09.04.09 at 1:32 pm

i love avril & abbey dawn! but the clothing line is pretty expensive in canada. i love this plaid shirt and really want to buy it but it’s like $40+tax, =$45. it’s only a short-sleeved shirt, so it’s not relly worth it>.>
~waiting for it to be on sale :D

#45 The Only One With Sense. on 09.05.09 at 5:41 pm

Opinions make the world go round. Some people need to deal with that…

#46 candy. on 11.11.09 at 8:05 pm

avril is overrated imho.
idk if she’s trying to act hardcore or not but she’s definitely not hardcore.
and abbey dawn just looks childish.
