new LE. the theme was americana. so we got stars and stripes, jeans and leather. but most important: we got wearable.
LE is often easy to compare to the phenomenon of haute couture. it's expensive, only a few can afford to buy it and there are only so much pieces of every item but one thing most LE collections (much like haute couture) lack is wearability. of course when it comes to haute couture we can sweep this lack of pieces one can actually wear in an everyday life under the rug as haute couture is considered art and a very respected craft but LE most definitly is not. so that's why i prefer a down to earth LE collection (like this one) over any kind of tacky fairytale LE collection. some of you may disagree and i can understand that but this is just my humble opinion. however this new LE collection shows some remarkable pieces which will be neglected by the genral public like those wonderful crushed velvet slides inspired by marc jacobs, because pieces like those slides may be to close to the clothes everbody can buy outside of stardoll. on the other hand we can find effortless and beautiful pieces which got sold out within minutes of the collections release (like the americana platformers). all in all i think we got a decent LE collection. of course it was a bit mean to release a new LE collection right after re-releasing the first ever LE collection a few days earlier but hey stardoll needs to make money somehow don't they …
so here is what i got. in case you're courious.
these are the items i got from the LE americana collection and as you can see evey one them fits very good into my medolls wordobe. thanks to the elegant and simple designs of those pieces it's not so difficult integrate into the look of my medoll which is another reason why i like wearable items much more than overwhelming and huge garments.
