Los Angeles–With her nightclub dalliances, feuds with fellow stars like Avril Lavigne, vying to play porn star Linda Lovelace in a biopic, constant tweeting and being chased 24/7 by paparazzi, it’s a wonder that Lindsay Lohan has time for fashion.
But the 23-year-old actress continues to capitalize on the seemingly unending thirst for anything LiLo by launching a handbag collection to complement her 6126 apparel and leggings collection.
Launching for holiday selling season, the 6126 handbag collection will retail at $165 to $395 and be sold alongside 6126 apparel to better department stores and specialty stores. The bags, part of a licensing deal with The California Bag Co. and 6126 Collection, where Lohan serves as creative director. Paz Shaked Wolf, former handbag designer with Tarina Tarantino and Dolce & Gabbana, will be in charge of the collection’s design team along with La Lohan who reportedly will “be extremely hand-on in all aspects of design and production.”
“Bags are such an important part of any wardrobe and can enhance or add just the right pop to any outfit. I have been fortunate enough to carry handbags from the best designers in the world and my hope in creating a 6126 handbag collection was to make timeless classic bags that make you feel glamorous carrying them,” says Lohan, who adds that she will continue to expand into other categories.
Diffusion Line Planned for Spring 2010
Included in the initial collection is what Lohan terms her “it” bag, the “Monroe” named for the late Marilyn Monroe, who birth date is used as the 6126 company name. Other styles will include “Starlett” with mesh and woven chain details, “The Kitten with a Whip” a snakeskin style as well as—what else—a nightclub inspired style called “Glam-A Go-Go.”
Plans call for Lohan to have her own diffusion handbag brand, 7286, named for her own birth date, that is slated to debut at Dillard’s in Spring 2011 with an average retail of about $128.
