Rebel Wilson + Torrid Is the Plus-Size Collab We’ve Been Waiting For
We <3 Rebel Wilson first and foremost for her hilarious comedic talents. She’ll forever hold a place in our hearts as the cringeworthy, tattooed roomie from Bridesmaids. But aside from the endless LOLs we endure every time we watch her on the big screen, we also love the Aussie actress for her brilliant sense of style. She can show up to a movie premiere dressed to the nines in a figure flattering bodycon dress and then hit up a talk show the next day sporting a pair of fuzzy poodle sneakers.
So when we heard the news that Rebel will be collaborating with plus-size fashion brand Torrid on a fall capsule collection, you can bet we were pretty stoked. No photos have been released of the upcoming line yet, but we do have the scoop on a few pieces you can expect to find. You’ll be able to snag a koala-print tee (reflective of the actress’ Australian background) and microphone-shaped hardware and charms — we’re thinking in the place of buttons on jackets and jeans — that speak to her life performing on stage à la Pitch Perfect 2.
The line is scheduled to hit stores in November of this year. We know that’s a long time to wait, but if you save up until then you just might be able to snag almost every item from the capsule collection. The 25 pieces will range in price from $25 to just $125. And just in case this isn’t enough good news for you, Torrid has also just confirmed that a Spring 2016 collection with Rebel is also already in the works.
In a statement about the upcoming collab, Rebel said, “I’ve had a ‘torrid’ affair with buying clothes all my life. 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. It’s really only been in the last few years that I’ve seen companies try. 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.”
