Twenty8Twelve: Sienna Miller's New Celeb Clothing Line -- Hot or Not?

Another celebrity collection is heading for the racks even though each one seems more anticlimactic than the last. In the wake of the collective eye-roll by fashion critics at Kate Moss’s line, Sienna Miller will be the next to have tried her hand at designing clothes. Fortunately for Sienna, most of the actual designing of the collection, Twenty8Twelve, has been done by her sister, Savannah — an actual design school graduate and short time protégé of Alexander McQueen.

After reviewing the first few photos of the line, I am on the fence. What usually irks me is that most celeb driven collections are nothing more than items chosen from their own closets (items made by real designers) that are cheaply re-fabricated, thrown together with their names on the label, (thankfully we were spared the “M by Madonna” cone bustier for H&M) and are completely unrealistic for real women’s bodies. Although Twenty8Twelve also resembles Sienna’s tattered boho look, (which has been criticized a lot in the media lately), it is surprisingly… okay. There are some nice silhouettes including shirtdresses, well-tailored jackets, and even an interesting looking pair of jeans with zippers running down the back. But unfortunately, skepticism still lingers in the back of my mind. The clothes will sell, as they always do—fans of Sienna will make sure of that—but past precedent indicates that the hype about these things is usually just that: hype.

Not that anyone has to take my word for it, (being a struggling design graduate just slightly bitter that the great fashion I could potentially create will never come to fruition for lack of being famous) wait and see for yourself! Let’s just hope the clothing is at least well manufactured.
