Britney Spears Fashion Designing for Candies

{YBA} Britney Spears 28-year-old pop princess sat down with InStyle and dished on her favorite items from the collection

Britney Spears now Designing for Candies “I love the black trench coat,” Brit shared. “You can wear it over your outfit or as a dress. There’s also an amazing studded skirt that’s perfect for going out.”

Britney Spears Collection For Candie’s “I wanted to make the clothes cool and edgy yet girly,” Brit added. “I also love jeans, so I had to make sure there were some great pairs in the collection.”

Now girl, if you don’t stand up for your own collection, who will? I mean it really looks overrated and outdated (and I could go on, but I made a pledge to not blast more than two negative comments in a row today). Sure, I could see the young generation wearing every single one of them pieces.

But sincerely, when was the last time we say Brit with leggings? And those dubious body hugging dresses fall hard under my style hammer. So do the handbags. And more. And where’s Britney? (more images right after the jump, click here for the gallery and don’t miss the catwalk video, after the images.)

The retailer will unveil on Thursday a limited edition, co-branded collection from Candie’s, and Spears, who, over the past couple years, has rehabilitated her image from that of a head-shaving, umbrella-wielding, Kevin Federline-divorcing basket case back into a chart-topping pop star who sold out arenas in her highly successful 2009 “Circus” concert tour.

Iconix Brand Group, which owns Candie’s, tapped Spears last year as the face of the brand, capitalizing on the singer’s comeback from tabloid purgatory as her “Circus” album reached number one and Spears added two more chart-topping singles to her discography, “Womanizer” and “3,” the latter an ode to threesomes.

Despite Spears’ checkered image, Kohl’s and Candie’s are betting she can lure her legions of fans – this summer she became the first person ever to reach five million Twitter followers – into stores to buy the new Britney for Candie’s sportswear, handbags and jewelry collections.

“I wanted to design clothes that I would wear and my fans would wear. That was the most important thing to me,” Spears told WWD of her first-ever foray into fashion design. “I wanted to make both daytime casual looks and fun dresses to go out in at night.

I met with the design team for Candie’s and Kohl’s, and we started making sketches and designed a line. I got to approve every single piece in the line. It was really a lot of fun.”
