Charli XCX, 23, is on to her latest venture, and it is seriously exciting! The pop-star just unveiled her collaboration with online retailer, Boohoo.com, and we are obsessed with the entire collection! From lace to sheer to cutouts, the new line features a range of affordable pieces and they’re all very edgy and sexy. What do you guys think of the latest collection — are you excited to SHOP for it?
This is Charli’s second collection with the online retailer, and this just might be the best one to date.
Her collection with the site was “inspired by the Nineties with a nod to the Seventies,” and she explains that the collection, “moved onto a more Y2K Millennial-inspired moment.” The line is divided into two parts — festival daywear and nighttime party looks.
Charli dished about her latest collection to our sister site, WWD, “I think it’s just for any girl who wants to go out and have fun. The collection is about easy-to-wear, and it’s easy to wear it in different scenarios, so definitely cool, young and probably a bit rebellious.”
Believe it or not, before becoming a pop songstress, she wanted to be a designer! “I did a full book of sketches and drawings when I was a kid. I always wanted to be a fashion designer, so it was kind of like in my brain playing out that role. But it was really fun to be so involved in choosing the fabrics, learning what cuts work, and what you can do with certain materials. I pulled references from some of my favorite designers.”
She continued, “I think it was also watching movies like Romy and Michelle, and even Legally Blonde when she restyles herself as a lawyer. I like the idea of makeovers and I always used to draw dress ideas that I would want to have. I used to staple clothes together and my mum would get really annoyed because I would rip out her old clothes and staple them to make new stuff because I couldn’t sew. I had to staple.”
Charli wants to expand on this career, “I would love to learn more about it for sure but, you know, this is fun for me. This is an extra thing to do, to bring another side of my personality to my fans, and that’s always really good to do I think.”
The Boohoo x Charli XCX collection features 39 pieces including a denim dress, ivory lace crop top, peasant skirt, slip-dresses and an assortment of accessories. The price range is $5.70, for ear cuffs to $35.50, for a snakeskin-print dress — those are seriously amazing prices!
Wow, how amazing is this new collection? We can’t wait to SHOP for it — can you?
