Actress and comedian Amy Schumer is taking her talents beyond the silver screen and into the fashion arena – confirming the unveiling of her very own clothing line, which she has launched together with costume designer Leesa Evans for Saks Off 5th.
The 23-piece ready-to-wear collection – dubbed ‘Le – will consist of wardrobe essentials, such as tops, pants, skirts, a jumpsuit and outerwear, designed for women of all shapes and sizes; offering a range of comfortable, wearable separates in neutral shades and in sizes from a 0 or XS to a 20 or XXL.
Items will be crafted from fabrics such as crepe and satin; with 30% of net proceeds from sales to be donated to not-for-profit organization Community Partners in support of the StyleFund project, which was founded by Schumer and Evans. The initiative aims to empower women from all economic backgrounds through the use of clothing.
Commenting on the launch of ‘Le Cloud’ Schumer said her instinct was “to be authentic and to empower women of all ages and sizes to do the same”.
“We are making beautiful, comfortable and wearable clothing that is accessible to real women,” she said added in a statement. “A Le Cloud customer will feel confident and powerful when wearing these pieces. We take our product seriously, but not ourselves.”
‘Le Cloud’ will be available exclusively online and in-store at Saks Off 5th’s 57th Street flagship in New York City and the Beverly Connection location in Los Angeles from December 13, with items priced from $38 to $248.
