What’s The Buzz?

20 Oct

So first comes reality t.v shows, then comes perfume and now it seems the latest celebrity fad is a clothing line. The most notorious, of course, being Kate Moss’s range in Topshop, following in her footsteps is Rihanna with her range exclusive to River Island, the Kardashian collection which is soon to hit Dorothy Perkins and my all time FAVORITE celeb range, Lana Del Ray at H+M!

Now I have a bit of a hypocritical opinion on this one! A few months ago I would have been stood here with a very sour face, telling you how all these celeb ranges were ridiculous and yet another avenue for the rich to get richer, that there was no passion behind the products and the celebs were not even the actual ‘designers’. I would be saying all these things and truly meaning them…… until Lana Del Ray’s range came out!

It’s a kind of chicken and egg case with this one. I love the clothing but do I just love it because I love Lana? In which case, these celeb ranges are in fact working. They cater to their fans and the fans buy! “If I buy these Halle Berry shoes ……my feet will look like her” “If I buy this Christina Aguilera Perfume i am so gonna smell just like her!” I won’t even start on the Towie products.

However, fad or no fad, they are out there, they are happening and they are working. There have been a few sneak peaks of the up coming ranges which I of course had to share with all you Yellow Buntingeers! Take a look and see what you think!

What celeb range do you love or what celeb would you love to see a range from?

    Thanks for the Pingback 🙂 However, I must point out that Lana Del Rey hasn’t actually done a range for H&M, she is merely the face of this campaign!
