Okay, so the Lifetime accessories reality show has a really not great name, but we’re still into the concept. A dozen designers will create bags, shoes, jewelry, hats, and other such non-clothing fashion items — and that is super cool. As much we love clothes (and we love clothes), sometimes we feel even more strongly about all of the other fun stuff that we wear. That said, we don’t typically think of handbag mavens designing jewelry or milliners doing double duty as cobblers. It will be interesting to see how these designers can handle a variety of disciplines.
Molly Sims is hosting, which we think is rather inspired casting. Remember her MTV House of Style days? She was really good! We hope “lifestyle expert” Eva Lorenzotti is as awesome of a mentor as Tim Gunn, and we’re excited that InStyle‘s Ariel Foxman is a judge. The other judge is Kenneth Cole, who we’ve seen speak and were admittedly unimpressed with…but maybe he’ll surprise us?
The show premieres in November, and we have this little clip to tide you over until then:
