Talk about a career pivot — and a brilliant one at that. Teyana Taylor is adding creative director to her long line of achievements, as she teams up with global fashion brand PrettyLittleThing to bring her creative genius to life through clothing.
The two kicked off their partnership with a 25-piece collection that puts diversity at the forefront. Encapsulating qualities of the PLT customer, the collection has a girly-girl feel with tomboy edge, complete with utility jackets, faux leather leggings, and sexy bodycon dresses. Teyana’s signature style can be felt in the nod to ‘90s legends of hip hop and R&B with tones of Missy Elliot and Aaliyah throughout the line. You’ll feel a hint of nostalgia with the mesh fabric, pops of neon and bold brown hues.
“Being a creative director, it isn’t just sitting down at the board, I won’t be sitting at a table just designing. You get to really explore your ideas. There is so much more you get to do—it’s really exciting and I’ve had so much freedom to be allowed to design this collection from scratch with the team,” Teyana said of her heavy involvement with the collection. “I would never just put my name on something and not want to be fully involved and totally put my all into it.”
The COVID-19 pandemic didn’t stop this line from coming together — the vision came to life through virtual Zoom meetings over the past year while the R&B star was expecting her second child. See the full collection here.
