Gwen Stefani is one busy lady: singer, fashion designer, and new mum. But hasn’t stopped her launching her first affordable shoe and handbag collection.
Called Gx by Gwen Stefani, the collaboration with ShoeDazzle consists of 24 shoes and seven handbags, with nothing costing more than $US111 ($124).
“Whenever I design, I’m mixing different cultural influences and, always with the first collection of something new, I want to reflect on everything I’ve done in a way,” Stefani told WWD.
“The really big challenge is to get a shoe to look sexy and be at a comfortable height, and I think that we did that with the sandals,” she said. “I am trying to make the perfect shoe that you can wear all day long.”
“I just wanted to make something that looked really good and high quality, but that you could afford. That was a challenge,” she tells WWD. “I didn’t go to design school or anything like that. It is all about what I like and my instinct and working with great people, and trial and error.”
Stefani’s friend and ShoeDazzle’s chief stylist, Rachel Zoe, said, “I couldn’t be more excited for the launch! Gwen is an incredible friend and designer. Her style has always been a huge source of inspiration to me.”
ShoeDazzle doesn’t deliver to Australia so it’s time to beg your State-side friends to send you a pair – or better yet plan a shopping trip to the U.S.!
