I just stopped by Revolve Clothing's sister site ForwardForward.com and discovered a beautiful Egyptian Hieroglyphic ring in the corner of the main page. Much to my surprise, I realized it was Erin Wasson's Low Luv line. The pieces are beautiful and the prices very affordable ($50-200)
A quick search of articles on this line indicated that prior to release, the prices were expected in the $1000+ range which seems a little ridiculous considering it's not precious metals and gems. It's also reported that Evan Yurman (David Yurman jewelry) helped source the materials. I'm not surprised as again, I think Wasson is a better spokesmodel than trailblazer.
Unfortunately, this article left a sour taste in my mouth. Allegedly the help was not only from Evan Yurman, but Bliss Lau...unwittingly. It's speculated that Erin got the line started during Alexander Wang's show, either recasting Bliss Lau's actual body chains or copying them
Without cold hard facts, I'm unwilling to say one way or the other but I wouldn't be surprised if it were true. However, I believe Darwinism rules in the fashion world. Replication is an indication of success and to keep that success, a designer needs to stay one step ahead, designing new pieces, creating new hype.
