For Love and Lemons

By Eva Medoff, June 14th, 2010

While black and white bondage, sheer leggings and goth-painted lips might not seem to be the products of Southern California, design duo Gillian Mahin and Laura Hall dreamt up a collection full of it from sunny San Diego. Citing film noir as inspiration, their line, For Love and Lemons, is a modern, Lady Gaga-influenced take on the femme fatale. She wears body suits, sheer dresses and midriff-baring tops, yet still manages to slip into an elegant black gown with all the grace and drama of Lauren Bacall. We round up our favorites for you to fantasize about until the line becomes available on the For Love and Lemons site and on online boutique Spanish Moss in August.
