…and it’s pretty mediocre.
Gordon’s new line Mirror/Dash shares it’s name with a Sonic Youth side project. While I only have the utmost respect for Kim Gordon herself, the clothes are just so so. There are a few pieces that are nice, but none of it’s very impressive. Perhaps it would have been better to do a line elsewhere that was more expensive. As far as I am concerned everything produced for Urban Outfitters is poorly made and poorly fitted. It’s Forever 21 quality, but it costs roughly 3 times as much, and once you wash something it never looks the same.
Apart from the quality, if you watch the following video she says her inspiration is Francoise Hardy and other 60’s French singers. I am sorry, but I just don’t see it (with the exception of the one on the far right). While I don’t have much nice to say about the line, she looks fantastic. I hope I look as hot when I am 55.
On a side note, I was looking for photos of pieces from her old line X Girl but couldn’t find any. If someone knows where they are please let me know.
