Lindsay Lohan's Jailbird Rep Could Up Sales Of Her Fashion Line

The bad news for Lindsay Lohan, as you might be aware by now, is that she’s going to jail soon. The good news for Lindsay’s 6126 line of super awesome pants-are-never-an-option leggings and other apparel? Lindsay Lohan is going to jail! Some pros in the retail field are saying this little stint in the slammer could up sales of the “designer’s” line.

Women’s Wear Daily talked to some experts who say the increased interest in the darling little jailbird that could might lead to an uptick in revenue for the struggling fashion house.

“Lindsay has mind share right now, so people will be interested to see what the merchandise looks like,” said Jeff Vansinderen, a senior retail analyst at B. Riley & Co. “Times are tough right now in the retail environment and if I’m a retailer, I’m going to put the merchandise out there and try to sell it.

“It’s not necessarily a bad thing,” he said. “At the end of the day it may not hurt, and it could even help sales in an ironic and twisted way. It would help if she is successful in her recovery and fans get behind her. Then she could use that to her benefit to promote the line.”
