Avril Lavigne’s latest project dips her toes back into fashion design. The Grammy-nominated musician has teamed up with avant-garde ready-to-wear brand Killstar on a new collaborative collection, inspired by her own punk rock roots.
Well named”Avril Lavigne by Killstar“Lavigne’s collection includes a range of garments in hues of black and bubblegum pink. The line features a range of pieces including crop tops, lingerie, bralettes, joggers, long sleeve shirts, bodysuits, pants and a wide range of dresses, meant to fit into anyone’s wardrobe.
Avril Lavigne stars in the Avril Lavigne Collection campaign for Killstar. For an added punk finish, the line features skeleton rib and barbed wire prints, along with two key accessories: a black leather harness accented with silver barbed wire dangling chains and a choker necklace with similar texture. It’s also affordable, with all pieces selling for between $16 and $60.
Throughout the campaign for the line, Lavigne kept her shoes in the same grunge fashion. In most of the snaps, the star wore pairs of black leather combat boots in lace-up silhouettes with platform soles. Likewise, tall boots in pull-on Chelsea silhouettes complemented her footwear options.
The “Complicated” singer’s collaboration with Killstar was born out of her own style and personal passion for the brand, which she’s worn for years.
“I love Killstar’s clothes because they’re punk and edgy but feminine at the same time,” Lavigne said in a statement. “Killstar took my creative vision and brought it to life with tangible pieces that are so cool. I’m so excited to bring this summer collection to my fans with lightweight pieces that still feel bold.
Lavigne also took a moment to share her favorite pieces that she also designed in a statement.
“I’m super excited about one piece in particular called the Ribcage Maxi Dress,” Lavigne revealed. “It’s so easy to dress up or down for any occasion.”
The Avril Lavigne Collection for Killstar, which ranges from $15 to $60, is now available to shop on Killstar website.
For footwear, Lavigne often sticks to edgy styles that match her wardrobe. The “Smile” singer can be seen in black and white sneakers from Vans, Asics and Converse when off duty, as well as ankle boots and combat boots from Jeffrey Campbell, Wild Diva and Ugg. For more formal occasions, Lavigne wears neutral-colored pumps, loafers and sandals from Christian Louboutin, Kurt Geiger, Vivienne Westwood and Giuseppe Zanotti. Lavigne is also a designer herself, owning her own brand of shoes and accessories Abbey Dawn which has been around since 2008.
