Subkoff + Bebe, Who Knew?

I feel like I've been living under a rock for the past few months. It wasn't until I was doing a little online window shopping yesterday that I stumbled upon this:


Did anyone else hear about Tara Subcoff designing for Bebe? I'm so confused. Usually something like this would have been in all the fashion magazines months ago and Bebe normally has print ads everywhere. I have not seen one add or mention of this, but maybe I somehow overlooked it? A much bigger deal was made about Subcoff's collaboration with Easy Spirit. Go figure.

The collection is a little expensive for me, but there are some nice pieces - like the cinched-waist trench coat and mini pleated skirt. None of the items really bring to mind Subcoff's Imitation of Christ collections - the pieces seem more French than reconstructed vintage.

Overall, I'm really excited about the collaboration and hope there's more to come, but I'm still confused by the lack of advertising...

Hmmm.. maybe Bebe figures it will be more mysterious that way? and more elite?.... you know how some companies don't advertise because they don't need to?.... by the way, I love all her ruffle wrap dresses!!!

this I did not know. This is totally off the point, but I also live in atlanta and I also have a blog! perhaps we should trade links.

Bitterbabe, you may be on to something there. Still, Bebe usually advertises like crazy.

Jen and Lynn, i think even Coco Chanel herself would like it.

Pomegranate, I'm glad I'm not the only one!

Heather, sounds great! It's so nice to find another Atlanta fashionista.

Sigh, Bebe is out of my budget.

Hey AC! I posted a link to watch lipstick jungle online if you are interested!

AsianCajuns said...

Secretista, I hear ya. I won't be buying any Tara Subcoff for Bebe unless it goes on sale.

Thanks Bitterbabe!

You're not too late they just released the line early last week. :)

Fashion Therapist, that makes a bit more sense, but I'm still surprised that I didn't see any ads for it last month.
