Luella ceases trading. Fashion world mourns. Seriously though, couldn't it have at least happened to Matthew Williamson or someone I don't give a shit about? Perma sad face in place.

Club 21 (who are the Brit brand's global licensee) announced this morning that it had (reluctantly) "taken the decision not to invest further in its relationship with Luella Bartley Limited."

In a statement this morning, lovely Luella Bartley said, "This is a very disappointing situation for everyone involved with the brand. I very much appreciate the support that [Club 21 subsidiary] VSQ has given me, but it is upsetting not to be able to protect jobs in this difficult economic climate. I love the Luella character and hope that after we have survived this challenging time the Luella girl can have an exciting future ahead of her, whichever incarnation she takes on next. We have a number of options open to us, and are considering these over the coming months."

WAH WAH WAH WAH. Might have the rest of the day off sick like my stepdad did the day Buddy Holly died.
