Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson has teamed up with plus-size fashion brand Torrid to release limited edition clothing which will come out in November of this year, just in time for the holidays.
Torrid’s newest collection, which is named ‘Rebel for Torrid’ will showcase a ‘capsule collection’ that features twenty-five fashion pieces like tops, bottoms, jackets, dresses, and accessories. The term ‘capsule collection’ refers to clothing pieces that essentially never goes out of style, so they can be worn interchangeably and in any season.
Each fashion piece will feature the Pitch Perfect star’s personal touch, including fun details like a ‘koala print tee’ and a ‘microphone shaped hardware and charms’. The prices for the collection will range from $28.50 to $ 125 dollars.
Torrid senior vice president of design describes the collaboration below:
“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.”
The 29-year-old actress, who also starred in Bridesmaid, shares that her feelings are mutual with the brand saying, as she has ‘a torrid affair with buying clothes’.
“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.”
An announcement was also made that another collection for spring is also in development.
Torrid is fashion brand under the retail chain Hot Topic, which offers plus-size clothing and accessories for women and teenage girls with the sizes 12 to 26. With operations starting back in 2001, the clothing line has over 170 stores across 36 states in the US.
