Comic/actress Amy Schumer launches fashion collection
Actress and comedian Amy Schumer is the latest celebrity to launch a fashion collection.
She teamed with celebrity stylist and costume designer Leesa Evans for Le Cloud, a ready-to-wear collection for women of all shapes and sizes at Saks Off 5th.
Tops, pants, skirts, a jumpsuit and outerwear, 23 items in all, will be available in sizes XS to XXL and prices from $38 to $248.
Initially, 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 in Los Angeles. It will be in stores Dec. 13, according to a story by WWD.
Evans became Schumer’s personal stylist after the two met on the set of “Train Wreck.” Schumer credits Evans with helping her feel good about her body. And her foray into fashion is a way to share that.
“She [Evans] taught me about proportions, and she taught me that I could feel comfortable in something other than sweatpants. The tools that she gave me for feeling comfortable and feeling that I could reach my full potential, and I was more worthy to be out in the world in an outfit. I wanted to pass that on to every woman. That is my truest, deepest reason I wanted to do this. And wanting it to be affordable and comfortable and look great,” Schumer said.
“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,” she said.
Thirty percent of net proceeds from the sales of the collection will be donated to support Stylefund, a not-for-profit that Schumer and Evans founded in 2017 to educate and help women find the best clothing for their bodies.
