Lavigne debuted the latest season of her Abbey Dawn by Avril Lavigne collection for Kohl’s at STYLE360 in
“It’s really for anyone of all ages,” Lavigne said about the line. “Girls who like to express themselves through fashion and go nuts and wear some cool rock and roll pieces.” With the catwalk models wearing everything from spiky accessories and neon prints to ripped leggings and studded cut-off shorts, Avril’s rock ‘n’ roll edge certainly came through. “The beauty with fashion is that you can just mix and match and that’s what I like to do. I love to wear dresses — sometimes! But if I wear a dress, I like to wear Converse or Doc Martens. Tonight, though, I did make myself wear high heels,” she confesses. “It was really hard. I was going back and forth: Do I wear the heels or do I wear the Converse? And I was like, ‘All right, Avril, it’s your fashion show. You better wear the heels.’” But not for long. As soon as she ducked backstage, the signature Converse returned. As for Lavigne’s favorite piece in this year’s more colorful collection? “The hoodie with the drawstrings that have earbuds. You can listen to your music and have your iPod in the pocket. It’s really cool.”
Abbey Dawn by Avril Lavigne is available in Kohl’s stores and on kohls.com.
