Eva Mendes the clothing designer…yes add that to the beautiful actress’s resume. Mendes, who previouslylaunched a home decor line at Macy’s signed a multi-year agreement to do a collaboration with New York & Company, which will be available nationwide and online beginning Fall ’13. The yet to be named line will feature apparel and accessory items inspired by Mendes’ own personal style and red carpet looks. “I am excited to partner with New York & Company on my first-ever ready-to-wear collection,” said Mendes. “As a retailer, New York & Company is focused on delivering affordable fashion with the energy, excitement and style of New York City, and I’m thrilled to collaborate with the design team to infuse my personal style and aesthetic into this core direction. We’ve already begun work on the collection and the creative energy of the whole team is fantastic. I can’t wait to launch the Fall line and to help women across America feel empowered, glamorous and confident in the way they’re dressed.”
Mendes will collaborate with the NY&C design team to create the seasonal collections, which are expected to feature apparel and accessory items — many of which will transcend day to evening. The line will be delivered four times a year and be priced in line with NY&C’s affordable-fashion pricing commitment for consumers. The retailer will also develop an ad campaign featuring Mendes wearing her designs.
Love Eva’s style…can’t wait to check it out!
