The Queen Collection
The beautiful Queen Latifah is at it again and has decided to include “designer” to her lengthy title. Queen Latifah who has always been an avid fashionista herself will launch The Queen collection- a line of clothing and accessories including leggings, jeans, handbags and clip-on extensions on HSN this August. HSN has launched lifestyle brands for some of our favorite celebrities including Serena Williams, Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, Iman and more. Next up on their Hollywood roster is Queen Latifah who will be launching her collection, Queen.
Her collection will come in a wide range of sizes although the term “plus-size” will not be used because Queen Latifah feels that, “It is a word we need to bury at this point ... I wanted to make something size two and up,” she said. “The truth is, we all would like to wear the same clothes. We all want to wear beautiful, fly clothes no matter what size you are, and so for me it was important to match with a company that understood and respected that ideal.” In fact, it’s one of the reasons she hadn’t tried designing clothes before. “I felt like larger girls were not respected, even though we are huge consumers,” Queen Latifah said. “I felt the marketplace didn’t respect us in the way it should. I was not going to step out with a clothing line that didn’t respect a fuller-figured woman or a curvaceous woman, and really all women.”
According to WWD, all apparel will be priced under $100 and leather goods will cost between $170 and $300. Check out some pieces from her collection below and tell us what you think!
