Rebel Wilson Teams Up With the 'Dope' Plus-Size Brand for Her First Capsule Collection
Rebel Wilson is branching into fashion! The Pitch Perfect 2 star is partnering with the plus-size clothing brand, Torrid, for her very own holiday capsule collection. From cute prints and bold accessories (there will be koala and microphone-shaped pieces!), it sounds like the line (all under $130) is bound to make a statement on the party circuit.
“I’ve had a ‘torrid’ affair with buying clothes all my life,” Wilson said in a statement. “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. 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.”
As someone who once described herself as “the type of girl with no fashion sense,” it hasn’t taken her long to get the hang of designing. “I’ve been loving designing the clothes for my capsule collection,” she shared. “I’ve been putting my unique style and personal loves into the clothing and literally can’t wait for the collection to launch!” Those distinctive touches include a koala print tee (reflecting her Australian background) and microphone-shaped hardware (maybe a nod to Fat Amy?).
She told Elle UK that she was getting more interested in fashion after seeing the impact her outfits had on fans. “It’s becoming important for me,” she said. “I saw a lot of girls were beginning to notice what I wear and I feel a kind of responsibility, because there aren’t any women in Hollywood my size and age.”
We called her shift into fashion designing, so if we had to guess what she’ll do next, all things are pointing to her own celebrity lifestyle site à la Blake Lively or Reese Witherspoon.
The limited-edition Rebel For Torrid 25-piece collection is available in stores and online starting in November.
