AMY SCHUMER, LEESA EVANS CREATE RTW COLLECTION FOR SAKS OFF 5TH
LE CLOUD, WHICH LAUNCHES DEC. 13, IS A READY-TO-WEAR COLLECTION OF WARDROBE ESSENTIALS FOR WOMEN OF ALL SHAPES AND SIZES.
To actress and comedian Amy Schumer, fashion is no laughing matter.
Schumer, along with Leesa Evans, a celebrity stylist and costume designer, will launch Le Cloud, a ready-to-wear collection of wardrobe essentials for women of all shapes and sizes at Saks Off 5th on Dec. 13.
But why is the 37-year-old comic breaking into fashion?
“My instinct is to be authentic and to empower women of all ages and sizes to do the same. We are making beautiful, comfortable and wearable clothing that is accessible to real women. A Le Cloud customer will feel confident and powerful when wearing these pieces. We take our product seriously, but not ourselves,” Schumer said.
The collection includes rtw separates such as tops, pants, skirts, a jumpsuit and outerwear. Fabrics, which are designed to feel “as light as a cloud,” run the gamut from crepe and French terry to satin and scuba. The clothing is offered in a classic palette that includes navy, camel, hunter charcoal and black, which transitions from day to night. Sizes range from XS to XXL, which equates to 0-20, and retail prices go from $38 to $248.
Le Cloud will be available exclusively online and in-store at Saks Off 5th’s 57th Street flagship in New York and the Beverly Connection location in Los Angeles. The first line has 23 items.
