Bags by TES: Innovative handbag designer Tali Epstein Segal (TES) is one of the hottest young designers in Israel, hailed as the most promising designer of the year by one of Israel's leading fashion magazines.

Inspired by the unique characters and unforgettable style of this iconic SHOWTIME series, this limited edition collection of necklaces, bracelets and earrings is a must for every woman with a flair for fashion.

Jeans from Honey Labrador: Honey Labrador founded Honey L Designs in 2006 with the goal of creating a broad base of unique designs spanning fashion, jewelry, fragrance, and licensed products. Her clothing line for this "The "L"ements of Style" promotion is the first collection from Honey L Designs.

Denim from Blue Cult: Paris born, LA-based, Blue Cult Jeans has created styles that have stood apart in the vast sea of denim for nearly a decade.

"I'm a big fan of the show and its amazing sense of style," said Love and Pride's Udi Behr. "I designed this collection to reflect what people love about 'The L Word' with jewelry that makes a statement."

"My inspiration for The 'L'ements of Style comes from this amazing show that has influenced me and my community," said Honey Labrador. The L Word truly speaks to all women, with the many challenges they all face in life today. The strength and depth of the women on this show inspired me to create four styles of jeans to represent four very different women: Bette, Shane, Kit and Dana. Ilene Chaiken has developed characters with style, taste and class," she concluded.

A minimum of 10% of sales from the collection will be donated to charity. In addition, select pieces will be sold as numbered limited editions with 100% of profits being donated to two of the leading organizations involved with the fight against breast cancer, The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation.

Since its premiere in 2004, The L Word has become part of American popular culture. On the internet, the show's passionate fan base has launched legions of dedicated fan websites and blogs, and has helped establish a very large web presence for The L Word(R) brand. The "L"ements of Style adds to The L Word product line which includes branded perfume and jewelry into an area, apparel, that is a natural fit for fans of the show.

Showtime will be promoting these products in a variety of ways, including a nationwide On Demand sweepstakes, a fan "Design-your-own T-shirt contest," auctions at The L Word events, as well as traditional television and newspaper promotion.

The L Word will have its fourth season premiere on January 7, 2007 at 10pm EST/PST on SHOWTIME.
