It probably goes without saying that, like most fashion-obsessed young women, I'm a sucker for designer collaborations.... and by sucker, I mean that I might have queued up outside H&M at 4 AM when the Lanvin ♥ H&M collection launched. When some of the most coveted, celebrated designers in the world dip into mass market territory, there's huge potential for magic to happen. Of course, not every designer collaboration with a high street brand is successful (despite the huge frenzy, Missoni for Target, especially as far as fashion was concerned, was not my favorite).
So, when Evans first announced their collaboration with UK-based duo Clements Ribeiro, I was of course thrilled. To my knowledge, it's the first high street designer collaboration that's been available exclusively in plus sizes, and it's a damn good one to pioneer what I truly hope is a continuing trend in fashion. The Swan collection is filled with sexy retro-inspired silhouettes, sophisticated florals, heart prints, and a perfect LBD. If the clothes weren't enough, the gorgeous models Evans enlisted to front the campaign (Robyn Lawley and Tara Lynn, can we talk about girl crush?!) definitely step up the editorial game.
Thanks to Evans, I was able to get a first look (and play dress up!) with some of my favorite pieces in the collection. Swan will be available on March 30th in sizes 10-28 and priced at $70 to $160. A note on fit, while I find Evans tends to run on the bigger side, the pieces (especially) in the collection are definitely more tailored and true-to-size. The exception to that rule is the pants, which still run on the larger side!
Just 3 more days until it's all available here!
