Forever 21 passed along some more info and one image for its first limited-edition designer collaboration with Los Angeles-based designer Brian Lichtenberg, which I first told you about here. Lichtenberg's unique mix of high fashion and street style, as well as his custom looks for celebrity clientele, has landed his designs in high-fashion magazines, music videos and artist performances all over the world. This much-anticipated collaboration consists of men's and women's graphic tees focused around Lichtenberg's exclusively designed graphics, featuring crystals, dripping prints, cosmetics and a nod to his buzzed about caution tape ensemble for Lady Gaga's "Telephone" video.

Based in Los Angeles, Forever 21 enters the high fashion collaboration arena with a designer who both hails from and personifies Los Angeles culture and style. "We have long admired Lichtenberg's work and always applauded his unique, fashion forward vision and looks for celebrities," says Linda Chang, Forever 21's Senior Marketing Manager. "Lichtenberg is a true L.A. talent and we are thrilled to showcase his designs with this collaboration." The shirts will be priced at $14.80 for women's and $14.90 for men's and will be available in select locations.

All I could think of when I saw this photo was, Hey it's the model from The City (Allie Crandell)!!

Brian Lichtenberg did good with Forever 21. His design is like edgy and rock-and-rollish but I wouldn't say that I'm a fan of Brian coz when I saw his creations, I wasn't much pleased with it. I'm not a fashion expert but to me, Lichtenberg's design is something I would find just about anywhere (in a negative way). Sorry.

But with his Forever 21 designs, it's good.

OMG I'm so glad you said it first- when I saw the photo in Google Reader I was like "Ah! That's Allie!" haha!
