Well, this is about five years late: The CW is finally cashing in on Gossip Girl‘s fashion cred with a clothing line inspired by the show, produced in partnership with LA-based contemporary label Romeo & Juliet Couture, WWD, is reporting.
The collection will include embellished tops, bottoms, novelty sweaters, outerwear and draped chiffon dresses with touches of leather, pleats and prints–all of it inspired by one of the characters on the salacious show. So we’re guessing there’ll be a lot of bows (Blair), plunging necklines (Serena) and “funky” colorful separates (Vanessa). Let’s just hope they don’t take inspiration form Taylor Momsen‘s written-off character Jenny, who was a fan of sporting pink tutus from time to time.
The line will retail for $80-$200 and will be sold in stores like Kitson, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue for fall, which is actually kind of high-end for a line inspired by a teens’ show (and past it’s prime, no less).
While WWD reports the line will expand into handbags and accessories for spring, we’re hoping it will also one day include menswear because we actually wouldn’t be mad at some Chuck Bass-inspired suits and separates.
Again, we don’t know anyone who still watches the show, but if you’re in the market for a great dress to wear to a cat fight, or something professional to wear on the first day of your faux-internship at W Magazine, then this new clothing line might be just the ticket.
