Portfolio rocks our world again, this time with a first look of Twenty8Twelve. The line is designed by Savannah Miller and her sister Sienna; Portfolio's Lauren Goldstein Crowe says it's "by far the best "celebrity collection" to date." It's also the most expensive - the clothes will retail from $150 - $500, but judging from the first photos, it's worth it - especially that white pleated dress. But maybe the line itself isn't as exciting as where it will retail: We hear Twenty8Twelve will have its very own London shop, where it will sell clothes from the line, plus related accessories. This means rabid Sienna fans might catch a glimpse of the star just by going shopping. It also means there's crossover potential in the States - don't you think Barneys will want an annexed Twenty8Twelve boutique in the Coop?
Sienna and Savannah Miller Are Leaving Twenty8Twelve; Will the Brand Survive Without Them?
Twenty8Twelve, which launched six years ago, was one of the early celebrity clothing line success stories. Actress Sienna Miller launched the line with her professional clothing designer sister Savannah and the two have put out several solid collections of cute, wearable clothes. We were fans, which is why we were bummed and surprised to hear this morning that the Miller sisters are parting with the line. The news is surprising considering the brand is still doing well. According to WWD, the Millers will "pursue other ventures" (a new BeachMint brand perhaps?) while the brand will continue on under the current design team as Twenty8Twelve London. Huh?
