Jennifer Lopez JLO collection got me thinking. I started showing you some examples from her collection a while back and now I had to get to it again and rhetorically ask, once more, why should we bother to catalog Jlo by Jennifer Lopez, the fashion brand?
Being famous doesn’t give her the right to sell tacky designs under her signature, it’s so morally unfair! These two new handbags keep me wondering what are the reasons people keep buying celeb designs. The JLO pink summer 2009 bags can’t point in a positive direction! You can’t even buy cheap this kind of unmatchable tackyness! The pink sensations cost $140 and $70. What celeb-product have you bought recently? (via)
“Being famous doesn’t give her the right to sell tacky designs under her signature, it’s so morally unfair! ”
I completely agree with you, this is one of my biggest points of contention in fashion.. the way celebrities can push in using their fame and get the sort of opportunities and recognition that most ‘normal’ people working in fashion would have to slave away for years to get!
These bags are hideous, but this doesn’t really offend me much because nobody in fashion is going to take this seriously, but when you see celebrity lines being stocked in prestigous boutiques and department stores and featured in magazines, that’s another matter..! (and then of course there’s the whole Kanye West thing..)
I agree ladies.
I’ve never bought a celeb design in my life and I never will. Like Hapsical stated about “normal” people working in fashion…..etc. etc.
I’m very fond of some small labels in clothing and accessoires whom deliver great, stylish quality pieces with a nice price tag. And important too is that they are exclusive.
Yes her designs are not very attractive.
Its all about the money and how much she can amass, is my guess.
I have to say that I do like some of Gwen Stefani’s line L.A.M.B.. Her clothes are a bit of fun.
And as for celeb perfumes I like SJP’s “Lovely” and Halle Berry’s perfume, but I don’t buy things because of the name of the person behind it, I buy it only if I like it.
The whole celeb line (if it is clothes, perfumes or whatever)is only possible with the help of a brand. The celebs do nothing, they only give their name to a product and recieve a little amount of money for that. Ghost designers makes the collections for these kind of persons. This has nothing to do with fashion only with a famous name and the profits some brands are recieving from it. It’s a matter of doing business, and a famous name will always sell. Because the average people always look up to celebs. No matter how rotten they are. Have all a nice weekend.
There tacky and something I would see selling in a 2 dollar shop.
I think most celebs dnt have any fashion sense and yet they go on to make there own brands… selling anything under there name….
