Husband and wife design duo Isabel and Ruben Toledo are resurfacing in the fashion world with the news that the two are collaborating on a line for Lane Bryant!
This is the first plus-size collaboration of this magnitude following their previous collections for Target and Playless, so Lane Bryant is in good company.
“Their unique customer base is an inspiring and diverse audience for which we look forward to crafting new and innovative fashions, accessories and even some other categories,” Isabel told Women’s Wear Daily. “We also wish to introduce our vision of color, design look and style, and, with the vast manufacturing capabilities at their disposal, we know whatever we design will be made well and fit and feel marvelous. This seems so natural to Ruben and me and we cannot wait to unveil what we’re doing together.”
Plans that include a both a t-shirt and tote bag arriving this holiday with a full ready-to-wear collection for spring and fashion show to celebrate the launch—maybe during New York Fashion Week?
The collection will be available in 500 stores as well as online, and from what Lane Bryant’s CEO Linda Heasley says, this could be just the beginning. “We’re looking together at all product categories and nothing is being ruled out as a possibility for inclusion down the road,” she said.
Get excited, we certainly are!
