Signing in for three years collaboration with Lee Cooper, Lou Doillon joined the game for a sixty-piece collection.
She started out modestly but firmly with some personal and (let’s say) original designs that she describes inspired from Oliver Twist. Detailing her childhood memories and her present life style in an interview (with Nicola Copping) in Times, she said something absolutely amazing to keep in mind when thinking about the new breed of celeb-designers:
They said, “You don’t have to do it, we can do it for you” – but I said no, I want to learn. It’s my name written in those trousers, I want to be proud of it. I can’t let someone else do it.
That phrase instantly caught my attention so I started looking around for pieces from her Lee Cooper Collection.
I’m not very fond of the brand and I don’t look smashingly in high waist pants with belly-on-sight-t-shirts or top hats, but I appreciated her honesty and her sense of “I can do it myself”.
