A few new quotes from Gwen have popped up on Style Blazer in regards to the latest collection of L.A.M.B., with her calling the line “strong and feminine” and how she drew inspiration from an “amazing Jim Naughten photo of these Namibian boys from the Hereo Tribe who had made their own uniforms in blue and red.”

The collection is super fabulous and brings a more serious and toned down look than ever before. Click here to see the full collection for Spring/Summer RTW for 2014.

Two very unlikely themes converged into one for L.A.M.B.’s Spring 2014 collection. “The starting off point for this collection was largely a vintage flea market jumpsuit that had amazing pocket details and zips everywhere,” said designer, Gwen Stefani who utilized zippers for spurts of interest.

“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.”

Distinct from her previous work, Spring 2014 shows a maturity and control that Stefani has grown in to. Merging her personal taste with trends, she’s created mass appeal with pieces catered toward every type of modern woman. Aside from cargo jumpers, the collection boasts airy dress, multiple prints, asymmetrical skirts and tailored cigarette slacks.

“The clothing is strong and feminine with a mixture of both glamorous and tomboyish elements. I love that, putting a twist on practical pieces.”

Update:

FabSugar has shared a few new quotes from the Gwen on the latest collection and the inspiration behind it.

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.”
