Lohan + Ungaro = a match made in…

Posted on: 10/07/2009


Lindsay Lohan, a child actress with a penchant for partying and making headlines, teamed up with Parisian fashion label, Ungaro, to launch a Spring 2010 collection that has many fashion minds shaking their heads.  I’m guessing that Lohan’s new title of “Artistic Advisor” was a bit of a stretch for the actress turned tanning-products-and-leggings designer.  For the Ungaro show, the colors, the obvious heart motifs, 80’s silhouettes, a widely divergent look for the Ungaro house…are just some of the factors cited by style sources.  For me, I just couldn’t appreciate the pasties + blazer combo:

Here are just a few of my favorite blogs, sounding off on the collection: – “This quickly devolved into a bad joke of a fashion show, one with questionable color combinations, “bad eighties” draped silk jackets and drop-crotch pants, old-fashioned and ill-judged fur stoles, and, yes, tasteless sequin pasties. To top it off, the fabrics and the construction lacked the finesse you expect from a famous Avenue Montaigne brand.”

Stylexperts – “When I heard this summer while in St Tropez from one of the major manager of Ungaro, they just appointed Lindsey Lohan to design the new Ungaro collection, I nearly felt out of my chair.”

Racked NY – “Basically, everyone is obsessed with the Lindsay Lohan at Ungaro thing and no one really likes it.”

The Recessionista – “All I can say is WTF?! Why, why, why? Here we are in the midst of some really tough times and this high-priced “collection” is released.”

Of course, critics are meant to have strong opinions and be meticulous, and maybe the general public will like the collection.  But personally, I’m not a big fan of neons, pasties, or skin-tight dresses.  What do you think?
