Plus size fashion retailer Torrid announced today that they will be partnering with actress Rebel Wilson for their first-ever fashion collaboration.
Rebel for Torrid will be an exclusive capsule collection created with the actress. The limited edition Holiday collection will launch in November 2015, and will be sold in stores nationwide and on torrid.com.
“I’ve had a ‘torrid’ affair with buying clothes all my life. I’ve never really felt like there’s a brand out there in the plus size world that is creating cool stuff, that fits well and is good quality yet affordable. It’s really only been in the last few years that I’ve seen companies try. So it was awesome to team with Torrid, who I think are doing such a great job in making plus size fashion relevant and dope. I’ve been loving designing the clothes for my capsule collection. I’ve been putting my unique style and personal loves into the clothing and literally can’t wait for the collection to launch!”
“We are excited about this partnership with Rebel. She represents everything that Torrid is: young, fun, fearless. She has a strong point of view and inspires girls around the world to wear what they love, no apologies.”
Liz Munoz, Torrid SVP of Design, worked with Rebel on the collection:
“Rebel’s got a natural instinct for design. She’s been totally hands-on throughout the process. She cares about every detail, down to the diamante rivet on the jeans. We love the results… she crushed it.”
“Wilson’s personal touch is all over the collection. A koala-print tee reflects her Australian background; microphone-shaped hardware and charms speak to her life performing on stage. Creating pieces her fans would love was of utmost importance.
The REBEL FOR TORRID collection features approximately 25 pieces that range in price from $28.50–$125.00, including tops, bottoms, jackets, dresses and accessories. A Spring 2016 collection is in the works as well.”
We are so excited about this! We can’t wait to see the collection. You can find updates via social media by searching for hashtag #RebelForTorrid.
