I love Gwen Stefani. She was a style influence to all us young skate girls back in the day. I didn't go anywhere without a bindi for years! I love her sense of experimentation and her hint to the past. However, there is just something that grates me about her Harajuku Lovers / Harajuku Mini. Its as though she is the only person who has noticed the Japanese style and therefore, can just copy it, repackage it and sell it to us unassuming westerners. Its a strange feeling, because it should be something I should love. But I just can't.
Gwen states, 'Target has given me the creative freedom to design kid's clothing that is different than most anything you usually see out there with great quality, attention to detail and most of all, available at amazing prices'. I know you have to promote your product, but quite clearly she hasn't looked very hard. But a tutu and a graphic tee? Please. Gwen take a look at Scandinavian Brands, French Brands, Spanish Brands, British Brands, Australian Brands, Etsy and that is just to mention a few. There is so much you can get for your kids. Products that show true individuality and expression. H&M is truely amazing not only for style, fabrics and detail, but also price. Furthermore, we all know the Japanese have a great sense of style and fashion.
