Before the late Alexander McQueen died, he was reportedly working on a new licensing deal for his namesake brand. The expansion was to come by way of underwear for men. Slated to hit stores in June, “signature design details include skulls on the waistband of boxers and briefs and allover prints of feathers, X-rays and a collage of bones also used extensively in his last men’s runway collection staged in Milan in January,” says Women’s Wear Daily. These are by no means straightforward, simple briefs; but for fans of the designer’s unique vision they’re one more layer with which to pay homage to the inimitable talent.
Meanwhile, also branching out into accessories is Lindsay Lohan (who, obviously, occupies an entirely different plane of designerdom). The latter is adding handbags to her repertoire, which, despite rumors of their being in partnership with Ed Hardy, are strictly for her leggings line 6126. Considering she’s been relieved of her duties as artistic director at Ungaro, the move seems like a smart one for Lohan.
