FabSugar has posted more quotes from Gwen about the inspiration behind the fabulous Spring 2014 L.A.M.B. collection. Gwen says of the collection, “We have created a wardrobe for hot Summer days. Whether I’m working in the studio or going out at night with my husband, these are easy modern clothes for an insanely busy life.” We had posted additional quotes from Gwen about the line as well as photos of the entire Spring 2014 collection here.
Gwen Stefani has been bringing her particular brand of cool to the masses for a while now, and we’re happy to report nothing’s changed for Spring 2014. This season, plan on weekending in breezy dresses and separates done in silk or satin and then suiting up for work in pieces inspired by the guys (but cut for a woman).
“We have created a wardrobe for hot Summer days. Whether I’m working in the studio or going out at night with my husband, these are easy modern clothes for an insanely busy life,” she said in a statement released with the collection.
“We were inspired by the beautiful details and prints you often see in the clothing in Africa, [which led] us to add peplums to biker jackets and suits.”
“The starting off point for this collection was largely a vintage flea market jumpsuit that had amazing pocket details and zips everywhere. It was incredible. I love finding that one thing and jumping off point that gets me excited when starting a new season. It inspired the collection’s jumpsuits and military pants with the zipper detailing, but we used silk and satin to make them feel more modern.”
“The clothing is strong and feminine with a mixture of both glamorous and tomboyish elements. I love that, putting a twist on practical pieces.”
”We were also inspired by the beautiful details and prints you often see in the clothing in Africa. This inspired us to add peplums to biker jackets and suits and ruffles to African inspired fabric and prints.”
“The second inspiration I found was this amazing Jim Naughten photo of these Namibian boys from the Hereo Tribe who had made their own uniforms in blue and red. They were incredible. We worked the mismatched blues in linen into suits and added a red stripe to a shirt to keep it interesting.”
