    :woot: MissyE is jumping on the trend with an Adidas contract. I have a soft spot for her music & brave personal style, so i dont really mind her cashing in the Adidas euros :p

    extracts from a wwd article :flower:

    I, too, have a soft-spot for Missy E. :p I have a gut feeling hers will be different from the rest (she is a smart lady and Adidas will be supervising, I'm sure), though if it is quite the opposite I'd ignore. :sick:

    Ashanti? :shock: :doh:

    Thanks Lena! :flower:

    I agree. I don't expect it to be some shitty j.lo esque line. I am actually excited about it (but not about the rest!).

    I am personally waiting for the signature bra line by Janet Jackson (I think they'll save 50% on the cost of fabric)!

    I think Missy is one of the few rapper turned fashion designers that will be worth taking a second look at...She has had HUGE ties with Adidas for many years, so good for her! :flower:

    Thanks Lena. :flower: I like the name and find it real clever, too. I also love the fact she wants to accomodate larger-sized women. :flower:

    I think it may be okay because it's doubtful Adidas will let her put "Missy" on everything. We'll see...

    there couldnt have been a better collaboration than ADIDAS/MISSY!!!
    she is an excellent representant and she would be a brilliant designer. the larger size idea is also smartness that noone has thought of before! :heart: :woot: :flower:

    ALL these celcbirties in the music industry are doing the same thing! 50 cent and Jay-Z with Reebok, Hilary Duff has her own line now, Gwen Stefani with her L.A.M.B (which i thought was L.A.M.E) and now Missy with Adidas!
    Is this market such lucrative that anyone can come in and have a try?

    it certainly shows that music stars can influence shopping attitude, i also think MissyE is quite on a different level form the rest pennyfrei ;)

    main problem with Gwen's (and other's) line is that those people dont even wear their 'designs' themselves.. they should try and push their 'design' work harder e.g. wearing them on star events etc :ninja:

    gwen stefani wears her designs all the time.

    the problem is that some of what she's seen in was either early samples that they decided not to produce, or made especially for her. but she can still be seen in the items that are available, occasionally.

    she's worn numerous l.a.m.b items, or what have you to events...(i.e. the grammys...) ... but unlike a lot of the 'celebrity-turned designers', she's been designing her own clothing since she was young, so it only seemed a bit natural for her to do a line. however, i don't think it's as great as it COULD have been. i do love the tees though + the hoodie i have. (and yes, i'm a no doubt fan...+ i just adore the fact that nd lyrics are infused into the clothing.) but, i've been making my own clothing for some years now + it doesn't mean i'll have a clothing line out. haha it's all about the big name.


    aw, back on topic......i love those shoes/sneakers/boots in the first pic posted. i wonder if those will be available. i'm interested in seeing her line. i do like the name, as well.
