“Everybody wants to write a negative story about Lindsay right now, but the real story is that Lindsay is a very talented designer,” Lindsay Lohan's partner for her 6126 leggings line Kristi Kaylor told WWD. “The real story is that the brand is doing well. Sales have only increased.” But WWD argues that that's not true at all. In a good bit of investigatory fashion journalism, the paper called the stores Kaylor said had received shipments of 6126 merchandise in the past two weeks.
Of the four stores based in the U.S., two stopped carrying the brand at least two years ago, one store had closed and the other location’s address was not listed.
And while Lohan's blog on the 6126 site said that her new handbags would hopefully be sold in "Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale’s and other high-end specialty boutiques across the world," the results of that statement remain a mystery.
“The handbags are something different,” admitted Kaylor. “We’re making some changes with our partners but I can’t go into that now.”
Kaylor added that the leggings, which marked Lohan's venture into clothing design, haven't been sold in big retailers for "years." But this is Lindsay's pattern. One day, her acting is phenomenal in Mean Girls the next day, she's un-insurable and back in rehab. One day, her legging's line is so popular retailers can't even keep it in stock, and the next, the things can't even be found. One day, she's making self-tanner, and the next, she's being sued for it. There is one constant in her helter-skelter life, though, and that is that in everything she does, we're still hoping for her comeback. As long as she doesn't try to design for a French fashion house again. That was never a good idea.
