Oh, as if we expected Gwen Stefani to "slow down" during pregnancy (I mean, come on: pioneers got pregnant and still built houses, for crying out loud). That's why news of her collaboration with lingerie company Hanky Panky is less surprising than a logical step in her role as a designer.
According to Yahoo, the singer reached out to Hanky Panky's Lida Orzeck and Gale Epstein about collaborating with L.A.M.B. because she loves the brand's thongs so much. Naturally, they were into it, and the result is a collection of Hanky Panky fits and styles, but with a Stefani kick: camouflage print, lace embellishments, "Love Angel Music Baby" graphics, and gold hardware. (You go, girl.)
"I've had so much fun working on the L.A.M.B. x Hanky Panky collaboration," said Stefani. "Hanky Panky makes amazing product and combined with some classic L.A.M.B. prints and designs we've come up with my dream collection!"
"Gwen Stefani is an icon of great style and glamour," added Epstein. "A Hanky Panky alliance with her fashion label, L.A.M.B., is a natural fit as both companies share strong similarities: both were founded on vintage references and embody empowerment and femininity; both are known for trendsetting design. We are excited to offer a collection of lingerie that connects women with their inner rock star!"
The line is also surprisingly affordable — especially for a celebrity collaboration. G-strings run for about $23, and chemises will go for $86. But there's a bit of a wait: while you can pick up the collection at major department stores (or any store that sells Hanky Panky products) and on HankyPanky.com, but not until July.
The countdown begins! And in the meantime, check out images from the collection here.
