Beyoncé’s Sasha Fierce Clothing Line: Will You Like It Enough To Put A Romper On It?
Beyoncé and her mother Tina Knowles have announced a new subset of the family’s House of Deréon clothing line: Sasha Fierce for Deréon, which will take B’s alter ego’s penchant for over-the-top accessorizing and bring it to the junior departments of Macy’s. The clothes–an example is at left–are mostly going to be black, so as to make the accessorizing pop:
The jewelry, shoes and eyewear, she added, “are really over the top” with large chains made in mixed metals such as silver with gold, heavily studded shoes and oversize sunglasses such as the ones Beyoncé has been seen wearing on tour. The clothes are a little more subdued to make the accessories stand out — a one-shoulder dress, black bodysuit, fake leather jacket with oversize collar, leggings and destructed jeans with mesh and lace details lining the ripped material. [Ed. note: I really, really hope said jeans aren’t acid-washed. Don’t tell me you haven’t noticed that trend coming back too!] “When the tour started, we noticed the definite style of it,” Tina explained. “Thierry Mugler designed the clothes for the tour, but we really wanted to celebrate the style and interpret that into a collection.”
No word on if imitations of Sasha Fierce’s Kruegerhand will be among the items for sale, but since this is a back-to-school collection, I’m guessing that said item wouldn’t pass learning institutions’ metal detectors. In lieu of that oversight, I am really really hoping that her effort to one-up Kanye West’s shutter shades with glasses based on tinsel curtains gets the replica treatment: Beyonce and Tina Knowles launch Sasha Fierce [WWD via Flavorwire]
