A couple of weeks ago we learned that the then-rehabbing Lindsay Lohan was planning to expand her 6126 collection to include a line of footwear (not unlike her mother Dina Lohan’s failed attempt back in 2009 to launch her own line of shoes called Shoe-Han). Today, courtesy of People magazine, we get our first look at the first sketches from Lindsay’s 6126 line of shoes … and, to be honest, they ain’t pretty.
Lindsay Lohan recently Tweeted that she planned to take things “one step at a time,” and now she’ll be doing that in shoes from her first-ever footwear line for her clothing brand 6126! “I took inspiration from old Hollywood glamour and added a modern edge,” Lohan tells PEOPLE of the line. “It was key to make comfortable, timeless shoes that can easily go from day to night and feel cool, chic and glamorous.” Lohan’s business partner Kristi Kaylor says that means an update to classic styles including wedges and riding boots, adding modern accents like hardware and mixed leathers. And Kaylor tells PEOPLE that Lohan is involved in the creative process the whole way: “She comes to meetings with tears, photos, and fabrics. She brings her own shoes in to show specifics. She’s ultra-prepared, all the time.” Lohan’s also a stickler for high-quality footwear, ordering all the materials straight from Europe and choosing “fashion-forward but not trendy” shoes, Kaylor says. “They’re timeless — you’re buying an over-the-knee boot to wear for years.” Lohan fans can nab the shoes in stores this fall; they’ll cost between $100-450.
Um … I don’t see anything even remotely resembling “old Hollywood glamour” in these sketches … what I see are sketches for bland, boring and terribly plain shoe designs that one might find at Big Lots! For Lindsay’s sake, I hope these sketches are not representative of the best her new shoe line has to offer because … these are very unimpressive. That being said, I do applaud Lindsay for moving forward with her business plans (as painfully plebeian as they may be) and I think it’s wise to celebrate any of her endeavors that are positive and, well, legal. Will these shoes sell? I mean, I guess. Is designing a line of shoes enough to keep Lindsay out of trouble? Unlikely … but I hope so! Are YOU impressed by these shoe design sketches? Do these look like shoes that you’d like to wear … in public?
