Having recently parted ways with the house of Emanuel Ungaro, Lindsay Lohan has more time on her hands to devote to another project. And according to rumors, she wants to stay in design, but perhaps a very different market. A source tells E! she’s in talks to design handbags for Ed Hardy, a label whose customers are far more likely to grasp the appeal of glitter nipple pasties than Ungaro. Apparently Lohan shares “mutual friends” with the Ed Hardy design team, who knew she wanted to do a handbag line.
“As of last week, there are three collections in development and numerous more are expected,” our source says. “Lindsay is very directly involved with the project, and she’s always pulling things online and from magazines for ideas.”
So if anyone was hoping Lohan would exit fashion altogether and try to do more acting, the Ed Hardy people are the facilitators, possibly the pushers. No matter how much they may deserve each other, one must wonder if this is healthy for either of them. Maybe Lindsay should return to music.
