And here’s the next celebrity fashion line: Kim Gordon from Sonic Youth has made a clothing collection for the US store Urban Outfitters. Don’t get me wrong, I lovelovelove Kim Gordon, I think she’s really cool but the trouble is, I want to own all the stuff! I already have a room overloaded with clothes and shoes, and one day I have to live on the streets in a cardboard box because my house got overruled by my clothes. 😉
Anyway, back to Kim. In 1994 she started the label X Girl, a clothing line specialised in skater fashion for girls. But this time she decided “there’s a need for clothes for cool moms” . The Mirror / Dash line is a cooperation between Kim and Jeffrey Monteiro and Melinda Wansbrough. “We’re actually trying to do something a little less trend oriented, a little more classic, that might appeal to someone say who used to shop at Urban [Outfitters] but wants something slightly less young looking. And we would like to appeal also to the usual Urban customer as well.” There’s a lovely video on the Urban Outfitters website, where Kim mentions that french singer Francoise Hardy was a source of inspiration for the collection.
The clothes are reasonable priced ($54 for a tee, $68 for the skirt/shorts and $98 for the jacket) and are for sale in the Urban Outfitters US stores and their US website.
