If you want to dress like the fashionable Cookie Lyon from Fox’s hit TV series ‘Empire’, or any of your other favorite Empire characters, then Saks Fifth Avenue has some great news for you.
It was just announced that the luxury department store is working on a collaborative project with Fox to produce an Empire inspired fashion line that will debut sometime this fall. The curated selection will include men’s pieces from MCM, Jimmy Choo, and Vince, as well as women’s items by Alexis Bittar and Cushnie et Ochs.
To celebrate the launch, Saks will host luxury made-to-measure suiting events throughout September and October at some of their busier locations including New York, Beverly Hills, Chicago, Boston, Houston, Atlanta, San Francisco and Beverly Hills. The company will also release its second-ever magalog, featuring Empire actor Trai Byers on the cover.
The Saks president Marc Metrick had this to say about the unprecedeted collaboration in a press release.
“The lines between fashion and entertainment are intersecting. Harnessing this moment is a key underpinning to our strategy as it brings energy and uniqueness to the shopping experience at Saks.”
We can’t wait to see how this turns out, especially considering majority of the population of Empire viewers probably won’t be able to afford Saks Fifth Avenue looks.
