While Lindsay Lohan still might be on lockdown, her business goes on. Images have just been released of the 6126 fall campaign (taken, most likely, pre-jail and pre-ankle monitoring device), and umm … well, let us put it this way: Lindsay’s always going on and on about how involved she really is in her line, and these photos make us believe it. Because only a crazy woman would come up with a campaign involving spread eagle positions, lying on the floor with crosses, and generally “dark” photo ops that don’t properly display the clothing at all. What makes the shoot even weirder is how images like these are interspersed with normal solo poses. What gives? Check after the jump to see a few more pics. [Celebuzz] Keep reading »
Did you know that after Paris Hilton got out of jail, she made an appearance at Hollywood store Kitson to promote her fashion line and attracted such crowds that the surrounding area was shut down by police? Kitson store owner Fraser Ross tells WWD that Lindsay Lohan could experience a similar reaction. “Maybe Lindsay could use this to her benefit,” he suggests, adding that she “should make sure she’s wearing her line when she gets out of jail.” As they say: all press is good press, and Lindsay’s impending jail sentence might actually make fans more supportive and draw more interest in her leggings brand, 6126, which hasn’t exactly been a runaway success. Jeff Vansinderen, a retail analyst not associated with 6126, gave his two cents: “It’s not necessarily a bad thing,” he said. “At the end of the day it may not hurt, and it could even help sales in an ironic and twisted way. It would help if she is successful in her recovery and fans get behind her. Then she could use that to her benefit to promote the line.”
Knowing this, do you think it would be wrong of Lindsay to leverage her low point with the law to garner sympathy? Or should she be doing everything she can to get back on track—in life and in business?

Remember how we told you that La Lohan was expanding her 6126 leggings line and adding more merch to the lineup? Pics of the fall 2010 lookbook have surfaced, and, well, it is what is, right? We’ve got thigh-high boots (naturally), plenty of black mini-skirts, and one extremely odd-looking, asymmetrical, metallic leather vest layered over a sateen collar and trousers, after the jump! Thoughts, anyone? Bueller? Keep reading »
Lindsay Lohan likes to play the numbers game, and has given us some new figures to try on: Her leggings line, 6126, is set to expand drastically. The fall collection of dresses, leather jackets, ready-to-wear (and yes, leggings), will weigh in at 280 pieces. As for the prices, the range is also quite vast, the lowest item at $60, and the highest topping out at $1,000. That sure sounds like a lot of variety … which leads us to believe that Lindsay didn’t actually create a thing. Still, we’ll be interested to see the disputed designs when they hit the high-end retailers! [FashionIndie.com] Keep reading »
Oftentimes, plagiarism comes from the most obvious of sources. Did you seriously think that your professor wouldn’t notice the unattributed passage you grabbed from your own course packet?
So perhaps it’s not surprising to see what Fashionista points out: One of Lindsay Lohan‘s dress designs for her expanded 6126 line looks strikingly similar to a Jen Kao ’09 dress … one that LiLo even wore herself.
Hmm … what do you think? Blatant copy? Or creative inspiration? [Fashionista] Keep reading »
Joy! Lindsay Lohan is bringing her “designing talents” to yet another platform. She’s just announced that her 6126 line, which sold only leggings, will soon include a full range of dresses, jackets, tops, and vests. (Apparently, 6126, despite its laughable attempt at serious fashion through leggings, did quite well in business.) LiLo is quite excited about this new direction, and is, in fact, even desperate for you to know about it, so she tried to do a bit of her own PR by posting to Twitter yesterday: “i need MORE followers i am so sad about this, how can i tell everyone about my 6126 full collection COMING OUT! all clothing.”
First look at the sketches for the expanded 6126 shows drawings that look like they could have possibly been done by Lohan herself with a sort of middle school illustrative feeling. Looks like the wares will be a bit like Lohan—vixen-like with a touch of Hollywood trash. Think suede studded bustiers, skin-tight minis with exposed zippers, and cropped leather jackets. Check out a few more pics after the jump and tell us what you think! [WWD] Keep reading »
