Charli XCX & Boohoo.com Collab
For Spring'16 Collection
Published on 21 April 2016
British online retailer Boohoo.com has unveiled its spring 2016 collection done in collaboration with musician Charlotte Aitchison, known as Charli XCX. This is the second of three apparel collections that the 23-year-old singer is creating with the British e-commerce site.
“I think it’s just for any girl who wants to go out and have fun,” Aitchison told WWD. “The collection is about easy-to-wear, and it’s easy to wear it in different scenarios, so definitely cool, young and probably a bit rebellious.”
“I think it was also watching movies like ‘Romy and Michelle,’ and even ‘Legally Blonde’ when she restyles herself as a lawyer. I like the idea of makeovers and I always used to draw dress ideas that I would want to have. I used to staple clothes together and my mum would get really annoyed because I would rip out her old clothes and staple them to make new stuff because I couldn’t sew. I had to staple.”
The 39-piece Boohoo x Charli XCX range features looks including a denim dress, ivory lace crop top, peasant skirt, slipdresses and an assortment of accessories. The price range is 4 pounds, or $5.70, for ear cuffs to 25 pounds, or $35.50, for a snakeskin-print dress. The collection will be sold on the brand’s Web site.
