Just what you wanted, a Matthew McConaughey shirt.

Matthew McConaughey What? Anyone who is anyone knows that I Mean What has been a voice against celebrity designers. These Johnny Come Lately non Academy Award winning, or Emmy, or Tony, or any any award winners try their hand, rather, they sell their name to a schmatta peddler and take some dosh. Lindsay Lohan, the slew of Kardashians, heck even Sarah Jessica Parker threw her hat in the ring at Halston, and today the news is that Matthew McConaughey has entered the ring for a bout of utter nonsense. This is more than anyone should bare. And when I say… Read More »

The Gossip Girl what?

Just when you thought it was safe to come out from under the falling dead celebrity fashion collections—I mean where is Zooey Deschanel‘s crap, Katie Homes’ nonsense and Sarah Jessica Parker for Halston—comes the worst bit of fashion news yet. Gossip Girl, that Shakespearean television show is getting its own fashion collection. Yes, this is true. Now we will have to live through the painful process of extensive cross-marketing between retailers and a list of television shows-turned-fashion designers. I cannot wait to see what Fox, CBS, NBC, ABC and Bravo have in store for us. As you may know, the… Read More »

Will you become a Valli Girl?

Let me be the first, well, perhaps the second person to congratulate Macy’s for doing a fashion-focused series of collaborations to generate heat and foot traffic. The newest collab is with Giambattista Valli for Impulse. All I can say is that creating fashion designer collaborations sure beats the celebrity-turned-designer nonsense from seasons past. Sure, Jessica Simpson is a billion dollar brand, but there will always be exceptions to every rule. With the demise of the Sarah Jessica Parker for Halston hullabaloo, maybe the fashion industry can rejoice and enjoy fashion designers again. And while I am at it, perhaps with… Read More »

sarah-jessica-parker, http://imeanwhat.com, halston

Gee, tell me something that I couldn’t have told you over a year ago when the Halston land grab was originally getting under way. Women’s Wear Daily reports that Sarah Jessica Parker and Harvey Weinstein are out at Halston. Why isn’t anyone saying, “Why were they in, in the first place?” The celebrity fashion designer phenomenon was in full boom right after the economy tanked and by 2010, there were more celebrities hawking schmattas then members of the CFDA. My guess is that all it takes are two lame seasons and the proof is in the pudding. Sure, there will… Read More »

Is it me or are socialites kind of sooo last season? Don’t get me wrong, I would love nothing more than to be a thin, blond, pampered beauty. But I think socialites are becoming passe. Granted, Olivia Palermo is here to stay. She transcends “just a socialite” and has managed to carve out a career for being her. I hear they love her in Germany. Olivia is Kim Kardshian without the tacky. No, the Kardashians are not socialites. Los Angeles is not socialite country, well, besides Betsey Bloomingdale and Nancy Davis, but they are a dying breed. L.A. is just… Read More »

In case you were away enjoying the holidays festoons and not reading I Mean…What?!?, well, that’s no excuse, but you are forgiven, ’cause that’s the kind of guy I am. But while you were away, this little news ditty came and went that I wanted to bring it to your attention. Two time Oscar winner, though one would have been more than sufficient, Hillary Swank announced that she will become the next celebrity fashion designer to enter the market place. Now that the Oscar race eludes her entirely, Swank will join the ranks of Kim Kardashian, Adam Levine, Sarah Jessica… Read More »
