In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Gwen talked about her love for intimates Hanky Panky and L.A.M.B.’s new capsule collection with the brand, which launched last week.
Gwen reveals that she’s been a huge fan of Hanky Panky and suggested a collaboration with L.A.M.B., which came together pretty easily. She says that the team came up with a million ideas for the collection and found it pretty difficult to narrow them all down, saying they “could only design a certain number of styles and patterns”.
Gwen says that one of her favorite prints is the Lambie Camo and thought it would be “cool to start the collection using some of the original L.A.M.B. prints”. Gwen still loves those classic L.A.M.B. prints saying she wanted to bring them back and mentions the amazing and still sought-after cashmere hoodies from the debut seasons, which she still has in her closet. Gwen still calls L.A.M.B. “a selfish, but really fun and creative art project” and says that she still feels like she designs for her own closet.
The Hollywood Reporter also shared an amazing new photo of Gwen, photographed by Pete Black. A similar one was shared on her official website a few months ago.
Hollywood Reporter — The hits keep coming. More than a decade after launching her clothing line L.A.M.B., Gwen Stefani is still on a style streak, launching the brandâ€™s latest fashion collaboration this month. Together with lingerie line Hanky Panky, the L.A.M.B. team has dreamed up four playful groups of pieces, inspired by Stefaniâ€™s signature pop and tribal-infused prints.
“I’ve been a long time fan of Hanky Panky and have been wearing it forever. I told the L.A.M.B. team I’d love to work with them on a lingerie collaboration and from there it all just came together very easily,” Stefani tells Pret-a-Reporter. “We had a million ideas about what we wanted to do and the only hard part was narrowing down the choices because we could only design a certain number of styles and patterns.”
“We thought it would be cool to start the collection using some of the original L.A.M.B. prints,” explains the mom of three, who cites the Lambie Camo set as one of her favorites. “There are so many great prints I still love and it felt fun and fresh to bring them back as lingerie. We did the classic black-and-white old English letter print that was the first print we ever did when launching L.A.M.B, We also did an updated version of the Lambie Camo print. We did these amazing cashmere L.A.M.B. hoodies in this pattern in 2004 and I still have one in my closet that I love.”
Take a style cue from Stefani, and wear one print-splashed bralette under tanks with the straps peeking out for summer. “L.A.M.B has always been about trying to design my dream closet,” she says.”It’s kind of a selfish, but really fun and creative art project.”
The L.A.M.B. x Hanky Panky collection, priced between $23 to $86, is now available on hankypanky.com.
