A few weeks ago, I was invited to check out the Spring/Summer Collection of Lipsy, a British fashion label with catwalk inspired designs, that has just launched in the United States, at select Bloomingdale’s stores. The party girl oriented line already has a celebrity following with the likes of Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Lady Gaga, and Taylor Swift. The collection I saw features pretty party (and some casual) wear with covet-able items ranging from about $80.00 to just a couple of hundred dollars.
Although most of what I saw I was clearly for juniors, if I’d been at a retail store, I just might have filled a shopping bag and emptied my bank account on Lipsy London items. There were plenty to choose from. For Spring/Summer 2010 Lipsy has “Pixie Festival” and “Pixie Party” collections. The first includes casual clothes of soft, vintage-style cotton, denim, and even some hoodies
Lipsy London dresses are most definitely for showing off at events, parties and clubs. I can just see Paris, or maybe Jessica Simpson in this floaty, bejeweled, plunge front halter. They’re not for the shy and most are fairly body conscious. Cheerful prints, bold colors, and lots of jewels, crystals, metallic, beads, and sequins, add a lot of bling and sex appeal to these clothes. But there were plenty of body conscious dresses that would make a splash if you’re a guest at an evening wedding this season, too.
