We’re not in the habit of reporting on rumors here at Brit + Co — but then we heard about Adele’s possible plans to launch a clothing line at UK outlet Evans. She, with a voice from the angels, the beehive hairdo (now the chicest bob) and all those gorgeous LBDs and old-school Hollywood gowns, could design your next favorite ensemble.
According to The Mirror, Adele may be starting a comfy, easy-to-wear clothing line targeted at “busy mums” — a group the Grammy winner identifies with strongly. “There will be a few signature pieces, like her favorite [piece of] winter apparel, the poncho, but mostly it’ll be mix-and-match daywear in neutral tones,” the source explained. Don’t expect this to be ready anytime soon; the source also said the line was in the very early stages and hasn’t yet pinned down a designer.
Adele’s fashion game has really stepped up in the last few years, and the world has taken notice. In an industry where sheer leggings and crop tops are the new uniform, Adele is a breath of fresh air with her vintage, more formal aesthetic. She opts for simple elegance with bold dresses and statement jewelry (though she was recently seen in a pair of culottes. Black, of course.) Nothing could draw attention away from that voice, but some of her outfits have definitely pulled our focus, like her stunning gold Jenny Packham dress she wore for her live concert at Radio City Music Hall in November. “Adele is very passionate about clothing,” Packham told The New York Times in a piece on her style. “She is very aware of how she wants to look, and knows what she wants.” These are perfect ingredients for starting a fashion line.
No word on whether the line would be plus-size or not, but the Oscar winner recently spoke out about owning her shape. “Would I show my body off if I was thinner? Probably not, because my body is mine. But sometimes I’m curious to know if I would have been as successful if I wasn’t plus-size. I think I remind everyone of themselves. Not saying everyone is my size, but it’s relatable because I’m not perfect, and I think a lot of people are portrayed as perfect, unreachable and untouchable.”
Adele has proved to be awesome at everything she does (did you see her rapping this week in Carpool Karoake?), so if this is true, it could be a home run.
