Singer Bebe Rexha Debuts a Line of Bomber Jackets with Gilt
These jackets aren't for the faint of (fashion) heart
Singer Bebe Rexha has collaborated with some of the hottest names in music: G-Eazy, Nicki Minaj, Louis Tomlinson, and 2 Chainz to name a few. But the recording artist’s latest collaboration isn’t one that you’ll find on Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart, but perhaps some place even better: your closet.
Bebe Rexha has partnered with Gilt, a members-only shopping hub, to launch a debut fashion collection featuring 11 one-of-a-kind bomber jackets. The oversize jackets were designed to reflect Rexha’s bold and creative style that she rocks both on and off stage. Multicolored furs, edgy studs, leather fringes, crystal and floral embellishments, and colorful airbrush artwork are some of the bold elements Rexha experimented with to make each piece completely unique.
Each jacket also features one of her NSFW song lyrics. ‘The Way I Are’, ‘F*ck Fake Friends’, and ‘Bad B*tch’ are some of the many empowering lyrics featured across the bomber collection, making them the perfect pieces for the die-hard fan. With the jackets ranging in price from $169-$4,800 there is something for everyone to choose from, even style icon Rihanna, who Rexha told PeopleStyle she would love to see wearing the $4,800 hot pink shearling ‘Bad B*itch’ jacket.

The capsule launches exclusively for Gilt members on Friday, the same day the singer’s highly anticipated second album, All Your Fault: Pt. 2, drops. So not only will Gilt members have access to the entire collection of loud jackets, they will also have the opportunity to purchase a specially priced digital download of her album and receive special offers from a curated list of some of Rexha’s all-time favorite beauty spots, restaurants, and hangouts in New York City and Los Angeles.

How involved were you in designing these pieces?
I was very hands-on. Gilt was a great partner and really helped me create what I envisioned while also guiding me through the process. I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted for these jackets and I wanted to use different fabrics and colors. We have a few different denim options, a satin option, a shearling style, sequins, multicolored furs, studs, leather fringe, crystal embellishments and more, which I love!

Why did you want to team with Gilt?
Gilt is known for launching different capsule collections for its members so when I sat down with them and we spoke about my upcoming project, All Your Fault: Pt. 2, and ideas on how to launch it in a bigger way, it was a natural fit that I think it will really resonate with my fans.

Has fashion always been an area you want to explore?
I love fashion but I never thought it would be an area I’d do anything in or with. Gilt gave me the opportunity to explore the fashion designer in me to help create these one of a kind, hand crafted jackets.
What is your favorite jacket in the collection?
I love the hand-airbrushed denim jacket with the album artwork from “The Way I Are” and the “Bad B*tch” distressed white denim jacket.

How would you describe your style in three words?
Fun, flirty, and comfortable.

What’s one thing you put on to feel instantly more stylish?
Heels or a choker.
What’s the oldest thing in your closet? And what is the most meaningful thing in your closet?
I have a really dope leather jacket that my mom wore in the ’80s that is the oldest. Earrings my grandmother owned are the most meaningful.
