Gwen’s Newest Gig: Uniform Designer
Uniforms aren’t exactly what comes to mind when we think of trend-setting star and clothing designer Gwen Stefani. But the L.A.M.B. founder has just announced that she will launch an exclusive line of work-wear for W Hotels. Starting this fall, female staff members at the luxe hotel chain’s Gerber bars in the W lounges throughout the country will be outfitted in the custom L.A.M.B. design. And Gwen’s touch is instantly apparent: the black jersey dresses combine a fitted ’80s silhouette and asymmetrical styling with ’60s seam detailing and side vents. When creating the design, she knew it would have to not just look good, but be functional for active employees. “I wanted to design a super cute dress that I would be excited to have in my own closet and approached it in the same way I think about my clothing for a tour,” she says. “We’ve designed a sexy and comfortable outfit for these women to wear out on their own stage every night.” Tell us: What do you think of Gwen’s latest designs?
