Please keep in mind that these are my opinions and I'm giving an honest review. I have not been asked to do this nor have I have I been sent any of the merchandise.
Loving Gossip Girl blatantly for the fashion and then for everything else I was excited to see what Eric Damon (the show's designer) was going to create for the girl's looks in this line. I saw the dresses this morning (the entire collection is dresses, if I'm not mistaken) and I've got some thoughts.
Overall, I'm honestly not impressed with the collection. For starters, though I am a fan of black myself, I feel there's too much black for this collection that is launching as Summer quickly approaches us and people are looking for more color than anything else. With the exception of one of Blair's dresses all others are either all black or have black detail Secondly, I'm not sold on these really fitting the character's personality that much. Now, I understand that all this has to be toned down for it to reflect a 'wearable' adaptation of the show so I will let that one slide.
Let us begin with Serena:
The Blair look:
On to Jenny
and finally Vannesa
Over all, these are OK dresses, I dont think they're anything particularly special and MUST HAVES. I think that Anne Sui had more interesting designs for the Target line and even fit their characters more. I have to say I'm disappointed, I really love Eric Damon, he seems like a sweetheart and I've loved the designs he's created for the girls on the show. Like the dress he made for Jenny in the season 2 premiere was gorgeous. So a bit of a let down but oh well, what can a girl do?
Your thoughts on the collection?
