Gwen Stefani Is Launching a Lingerie Collab With Hanky Panky, So You Can Look Like '90s No Doubt
In collaboration with thong aficionados Hanky Panky, Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B. is debuting its first lingerie collection. The music-inspired capsule collection will include bras, tanks, panties, and even teddys in L.A.M.B.’s trademark vintage-inspired prints. Stefani, the brains behind the collab, spoke with WWD about the project, saying, “Hanky Panky makes amazing product, and combined with some classic L.A.M.B. prints and designs, we’ve come up with my dream collection."
The L.A.M.B x Hanky Panky is yet another example of Stefani's growning L.A.M.B empire. Last year, she created a collection of rocker chic snowboarding gear for outerwear company Burton, and in October she announced her nail polish collection with OPI. Now she’s getting in your pants.Lamb x Hanky Panky is set to hit department stores and hankypanky.com in July, reports WWD, and will feature four style groups: for the romantic, Geo, an edgy, vintage-inspired print in pink, rose, beige and black; for making a statement, Old School and Old English Jersey, a group inspired by California’s super-stylish Chola Girls that features L.A.M.B.’s signature typographic print with the words, “Love, Angel, Music, Baby"; for the sporty girl, Lambie Camo is rendered in camouflage printed lace in florescent shades of pink, gray, white and neon yellow; and for the rocker chick, Rasta Jersey & Rob, trimmed in black lace, bright gold hardware and a L.A.M.B. signature “L”.
A lingerie line by Gwen Stefani is long overdue. She was the woman that inspired me to show off my undies as a rebellious 15 year-old. Her signature look — white tank top with bedazzled bra and low riders showing off her boy-short undies – was adopted by all the artsy wannabe Ska-punk girls in high school.
Of course, the new line is a lot more grown and sexy than the No Doubt of decades ago, but it does make me reminisce. Since early-'90s grunge is back, maybe late-'90s Ska-punk is not far behind? I wouldn't mind dusting off my oversized cargos and breaking out the bedazzler.
