The wait is finally over for Melissa McCarthy and fashion fans alike as yesterday the star revealed the first images of her Seven7 line.
Photographs published by Vogue show the line has got something for everyone. Melissa said herself that: “I want you to wear it how you want to.”
From black and white printed co-ordinates to sophisticated silk wrap tops and skirts there really is something for everyone, not matter what your mood.
She calls the collection a “basic closet” that she just couldn’t find herself. The designs will be available in U.S sizes 4 to 28 (UK size 8 to 30).
The Bridesmaids actress, 44, said that her inspiration for the line came from wanting a collection that she could comfortably adapt no matter what her mood.
“Some days I want to be prim and proper, and others I want to be in a band.”
We understand the struggle, and we appreciate a designer wanting our wardrobes to be a less stressful place with plenty of options.
She also noted that she aims to keep the line at an affordable price level with no piece going over the price of €130. Melissa says that she doesn’t want shoppers to “have to make a choice about going out to dinner or getting the sweater.”
Fashion was something that Melissa has always dreamed of making a career out of as she explained that comedy and acting were never her end-goal.
“Fashion is always what I thought I would do,” she explained to Vogue. “I went into clothing and textiles in college and moved here with [shoe designer] Brian Atwood. I was going to finish at FIT and he made me do stand-up on the second night.”
We think that this collection is going to have plenty of admirers. It is set to be released in the U.S on September 1 and we’re waiting impatiently for an announcement about this side of the Atlantic.
