When we learned that Forever 21 was teaming with Brian Lichtenberg on its first-ever designer collaboration, visions of affordable, sequined dresses and spangly bodysuits filled our head. But with just a few weeks left before the much-anticipated collection hits Forever 21 stores on August 13, the designer is clearing up a few misconceptions. “There are are only so many places that a women can wear a glitter dress; I want to open up my brand,” he tells WWD of the budget-friendly collection of T-shirts and tanks that he has designed for the mass retailer. “[This line] is going to be for the customer that is younger and has seen my work on celebrities and musicians, but doesn’t have the money to plunk down for my main line.” And just how affordable is he talking? Styles will retail for about $15 for both men and women. And Lichtenberg has transformed cotton basics into jaw-dropping statement pieces. Inspired by Lady Gaga‘s “Telephone”, Lichtenberg has created a tank crisscrossed with yellow caution tape that has “Lichtenberg” and “No21” scrolled across to it. Other designs include “Lichtenberg” spilling out of a nail polish bottle and his initials “BL” spelled out in lipsticks. We can’t wait to see more of Lichtenberg’s styles. Tell us: Are you excited for Forever 21 and Brian Lichtenberg’s collaboration? Andrea DeSimone
