Things are looking up for tattooed reality star Kat Von D.
Rather than the Ed Hardy-esque wares you might expect, Kat’s first collection, called “Love Letters,” has a tasteful gothic flair inspired by historical figures like Beethoven and Poe.
Not a skull tattoo or pin-up girl print in sight! How refreshing.
“I thought about my favorite love story of all time, which is the tale of Ludwig van Beethoven's 'Immortal Beloved' - a mystery that even now has never been truly solved,” Kat says of the inspiration behind her fall collection. “When I put on the 'Beethoven' jacket, or the 'Fur Elise' pants, I feel tragically romantic."
Plenty of black (naturally), lace and vintage-looking hardware adorn pieces like military coats, shiny leggings and distressed sweaters.
Kat’s "Love Letters" line – which ranges from $259-$429 for jackets and coats – is available at KatVonDLosAngeles.com.
(And if the designing thing doesn’t work out, Kat has her forthcoming music career to fall back on.)
