Marc Jacobs might be over the moon about this: after being the unofficial music mascot for his label, his favorite rock band’s bassist, Kim Gordon, is launching her own clothing line called Mirror/Dash.
Moms will be happy to know that Kim’s line is aimed at “cool moms,” which, I must admit, is a refreshing change from the usual teen hipster market.
Kim counts French singer and fashion icon Francoise Hardy as one of her main influences – and for those of you who aren’t familiar with Miss Hardy, we’ll fill you in: she’s really bad-ass. Case in point: the Hardy jacket that’s the only item up on the Mirror/Dash site so far, a motorcycle jacket in dark gray wool, modeled on a girl whose brown hair and bangs looks like Francoise herself.
She’s only selling 50 of these jackets to ensure the item remains as limited-edition as possible, just like most of the goods on the site will be.
But we wonder – will this inspire Marc to release an alternative rock album anytime soon?
