Why Lane Bryant's New Collection Is Breaking the Mould
Christian Siriano, Isabel Toledo, Sophie Theallet. We can’t say that Lane Bryant hasn’t already been behind a few plus-size collections that are a fashion girl’s dream. But with this latest collaboration, the brand is switching out the seasoned designer to put a different kind of expert in the driver’s seat: the fashion editor.
Available now, the Glamour x Lane Bryant collection is in big part the work of Glamour magazine's Fashion Features Editor Lauren Chan who worked directly with the retailer to translate runway trends, street style, and more into an array of designs that will release monthly for the next year, as Fashionista reports. The first iteration of this partnership features on-trend pieces such as a pleated midi skirt, sleek staples such as a crisp oxford, and the forever fashion-girl favourite: a clean-lined, cropped-at-the-waist moto jacket.
As Chan, a former model, tells Fashionista, not all clothing design is the same. And for women who wear plus sizes, there are a different set of details and silhouettes that should be considered when creating a really beautiful, tailored, and fashion-forward piece of clothing. Thankfully, the debut designs have been created to deliver on all fronts.
