Curvy girls, this one’s for you! Prabal Gurung will release a collection with plus-size retailer Lane Bryant in March 2017, the brand announced on Tuesday, July 12.
“Prabal is a master at mixing materials, fabrics and textures — he pulls it off in such a way that each piece becomes its own artistic statement. His ingenuity at mixing sporty ease with unabashed glamour has made his label a huge success,” Linda Heasley, the CEO of Lane Bryant, said in a statement. “We are delighted to welcome him to Lane Bryant and offer his innovative fashions, spirit and unique styles to the Lane Bryant customer.”
Gurung, who also had a collection at Target in 2013, is equally excited. “Designing clothes for the modern woman, one who is fashionable and unafraid of how she feels about herself, has always been my source for inspiration,” the designer said in a statement. “I truly believe that confidence is the key, and I continually strive to create clothing that allows women to look and feel their absolute best.”
Lane Bryant’s customers will be in good company. Gurung has dressed everyone from Michelle Obama for the 2010 White House Correspondents’ Dinner to Emily Ratajkowski for the Met Gala 2016. And while sketches of Gurung’s future pieces for Lane Bryant haven’t surfaced just yet, we hope he takes cues from some of these drool-worthy celebrity looks that he designed.
Melissa McCarthy looked bold and beautiful in a jade Atelier Prabal Gurung blouse and skirt as she graced the cover of Elle magazine’s July 2016 issue.
