Oh it's from Unique Vintage. Awesome!!! I have some stuff from them. They have really been getting into pop culture lines recently. They've done 2 Barbie lines.

They also have some great social media presence and respected well in the vintage community. They are also size inclusive so us big girls will be able to buy this too.

Lucie and Lucy wanted to do a line of I Love Lucy inspired clothes in the ‘80s, but couldn’t get any company interested. The companies wanted to do the costumes and not the regular Lucy Ricardo clothes. I’m glad their vision is finally happening.

Vintage clothing is hot right now and especially pop culture lines. Torrid/Hot Topic does tons, Unique Vintage as I said and a few lines from the UK. 

I'm hoping they can get some "well known" Lucy related person to model this line. 

These will be more than just costumes but actually clothing you can wear for day and night. Well at least I will since hats, swing dresses and petticoats are part of my normal dress rotation.

I bet I look lousy in a dress- hopefully they put out a line of Fred Mertz trousers that I can wear all the way up to my chin- they’d go perfect with a Golden Gloves 1909 sweater:bill1:

A Desi smoking jacket would be a nice addition. How nice to see some of the more fashionable costumes becoming actual outfits! 

I don't know the exact style or way to describe it, but Lucy wore a white dress with a floral design on the upper portion in many of the Hollywood episodes. That'd be beautiful.

That news item did say it was a 12 piece collection. Based on other collections I've seen Unique Vintage do, part of the line is accessories. So maybe they'll throw a bone to the guys and do a necktie. I've noticed that sometimes those ties have a little DA one and it's just another thing I look for while watching.

I hope hostess pants are part of the line up. Gals need something to wear for all those smart dinner parties they throw!

Heck, if they were available, I’d wear the damn Hostess Pants.

Alternate Idea: Potato sack, Afro wig, and vampire dentures. Available at your nearest Phipp’s.

As a English-2nd-language guy once said to me "That's HIGHLY ARIOUS!"

Other cute things he said:  He forgot some detail on a project and said "Sorry.  That fell through my crack."   Meant to call someone a habitual liar but said "he's an obituary liar"; also said this guy was "BOlivious" when he meant oblivious.  I've repeated bolivious so much that to this day I have to stop before I say oblivious to make sure I'm pronouncing it correctly.

In all seriousness, I'd love to see a 1960s/Lucy Carmichael collection. Not the slacks and blouse look she had in the early seasons, but some of her California ensembles were striking - that pink dress she wore in the London special in particular.
