Isabel and Ruben Toledo Link Up for Lane Bryant Collaboration

Overall, the fashion industry has been slowly but surely embracing the increasingly popular plus-size consumer base, and Lane Bryant just announced a killer new collaboration.
Given that more ladies don size 16 duds than the combined total of women who sport sizes 2 and 4, it makes sense that the popular retailer has courted noted designers Ruben and Isabel Toledo.
According to WWD, the husband-and-wife team has put together a capsule collection of t-shirts and bags that all bare the flavors of Ruben’s artwork.
Isabel told the publication, “We’re looking together at all product categories and nothing is being ruled out as a possibility for inclusion down the road. This is a big deal for us and we’re treating it in that manner in every way we can.”
“[We] were intellectually on board from the first moment. Their unique customer base is an inspiring and diverse audience for which we look forward to crafting new and innovative fashions, accessories and even some other categories. We also wish to introduce our vision of color, design, look and style and, with the vast manufacturing capabilities at their disposal, we know whatever we design will be made well and fit and feel marvelous. This seems so natural to Ruben and me and we cannot wait to unveil what we’re doing together.”
