Blake Lively only announced her pregnancy last week, but it seems she is already providing plenty of fashion inspiration for other mothers-to-be. The $148 top and $178 skirt she wore to share her happy news with the world have both already sold out, the couple behind Sam & Lavi, Sam Arasteh and Lavi Mirzak, told MailOnline.
‘We have many sell out items, but since her recent post we’ve sold out of our Lyna top in Wild Orchid and Seren skirt,’ the husband-and-wife team revealed in an email. ‘The response has been great and we are so happy for her and Ryan.’
And it looks like we can expect to see the actress in other items from the label too: Mr Arasteh and Ms Mirzak say the 27-year-old ‘owns many pieces’ – and as it is not a maternity label, she will likely wear them after her baby is born too. Ms Lively, who has insisted in the past that she does not have a stylist, discovered Sam & Lavi of her own accord, the couple revealed.
‘Since then, [she has] developed a fondness for our brand,’ they said.
And the star is not the only celebrity fan to have worn Sam & Lavi. Jessica Alba has been seen in the Evelyne skirt, fleece Ayla top and Lacie pants in the past month alone, Olivia Munn has worn the Aqua shorts and Alessandra Ambrosio has been seen in the Elizabeth top and Lesley dress. Ms Mirzak is the design talent behind the print-focused line, while Mr Arasteh is the business brains.
Describing her aesthetic, she says: ‘My knowledge of textiles has given me the training to create unique ways to play with fabrics. We take pride in offering cutting edge techniques of printing and dying and bringing this to our collections, to tell a beautiful story each season.’
The actress’s due date was not shared with readers, but it has been speculated that she may be five or six months along already.
