'Empire' Collection for Sak's Fifth Avenue
If you're like me, you're impatiently awaiting the Season 2 premiere of Empire. I mean, where else would you get your fall fashion inspiration? And since the show's backdrop is set in none other than the bone-chilling streets of New York City, maybe winter's too.
Earlier today, the luxury department store, Saks Fifth Avenue announced its collaboration with Fox to produce an exclusive fashion collection including some notable designers like MCM, Jimmy Choo and Alexis Bittar. The collection will include both men's and women's pieces inpired by the TV show's leading characters.
Curated Empire windows will be on display at Saks Fifth Avenue's New York and Beverly Hills flagships from September 10 through October 7.“ In a press release Saks president Marc Metrick described this merger as an “unprecedented partnership.”
“The lines between fashion and entertainment are intersecting. Harnessing this moment is a key underpinning to our strategy as it brings energy and uniqueness to the shopping experience at Saks,” Metrick said.
While we can expect the menswear to be tailored to perfection, nothing has us more excited than the animal prints and must-have accessories from the Cookie department. In the words of fierce and fabulous Lyon's leading lady, “Don’t forget to thank your Cookie on this historic occasion!”
