NYFW-Your Under Arrest, Gwen Stefani for Swagger Jacking

New York Fashion Week.  How I love to see the new, fresh fashions of tomorrow.  My usual top 10 designer collection I love to check out. 
In no particular order:

Tracy Reese
Jason Wu
Carolina Herrera
Marc Jacobs
Monique Lhuillier
Rachel Roy
Diane Von Fustenberg
did I mention Marc Jacobs.....oh ok. Well, nine.

I take a cyber pit stop at (who now has this amazing "moving" section in which you could see the models walk and watch how the clothing moves which equals AWESOME) Anyways....I found myself stumbling across Gwen Stefani's Colleciton.  L.A.M.B.  Its an amazing label and one of the few labels (celebrity label) that I can really respect and love.  BUT....her first openers I found myself asking....haven't I seen those before.  The fabrics very afro-centric inspired.  The mixing of patterns...colorful.  Than it hit me.

Boxing Kitten

Resort 2010

yeah, that's B wearing Boxing Kitten

Alicia Keys and Beyonce Boxing Kitten

Designer and Brain Child, Maya Lake

Maya Lake, the designer/creator behind Boxing Kitten is a fantastic designer who literally has dressed the best of them.  Beyonce, Rihanna, Solange to just name a few.  I personally am all about color and patterns.  When you mix, afro centric patterns with explosion of color.  It's a win-win for me.

So when I saw this: 

L.A. M.B. SP 2011

L.A.M.B. SP 2011


Now that is not to say that I don't love Gwen Stefani because I do.  But, I when I see a designer inspiration stealing from other designers.  I have to question.  I mean, it could be a possibility that it really did not mean to happen this way.  Maybe Gwen Stafani and creative camp had really gotten inspiration from some of other source....but,  the similarities are sort of shocking.  Don't you think?  So, I just thought I put the arrest out there because, I love Boxing Kitten.  If you ask me, Boxing Kitten Collection is so much better :) (Shrug) just sayin.


  1. Wow I totally agree with you ! This is just too much of a coincidence !! Boxing Kitten's clothes are soooo much better though...

  2. That they are! Love Boxing Kitten!
