It seems like there really isn’t anything that Tess Holliday cannot do. She is a gorgeous model signed to Milk Management, a blogger, and a makeup artist. Plus, she’s a proud activist with her #EffYourBeautyStandards campaign. *Deep breath* She’s also a wife and mother. Let’s not forget about People magazine cover star and one of Time‘s 30 Most Influential People on the Internet. We’re not done yet. She is also a clothing designer thanks to her collaboration with plus-size retailer Penningtons.
It’s her collab with Penningtons that we’re here to talk about today. When it was announced that Tess was working on a clothing line, everyone was excited because she has that gorgeous vintage-meets-rocker style. She has partnered with Canadian retailer Penningtons on the collection to launch the mblm x Tess Hollliday collection.
Unlike a lot of celebrity clothing collabs, Penningtons and Tess have a longer term partnership. Penningtons will release a few new pieces designed by Tess Holliday every month for the next year. If you miss getting anything from the first launch, you can hopefully get something in the second one (or the third or fourth). Don’t worry, there is no need to start making frequent trips to Canada, Penningtons ships to the US.
The first offering from Tess features casual pieces that you will live in on the weekends. It includes dresses, jeans, blouses and trendy jackets. The prices in the collection range from $46 for a blouse to $110 for a faux suede jacket.
Check out some of the pieces available now:
Looking for a new spring jacket? Look no further than this military one. The dusky green color works with everything while the cropped length is great for layering.
This top is so much more interesting than your basic white tank. It features a cool burnout print and raw edges. Plus, the asymmetric hems adds just a bit more pizzazz.
This dress could very well become your new favorite. It can be easily dressed up or down. Plus, it is made out of a soft challis fabric and has a zipper on the front. If you’re wondering where the shark bite fits into things, it’s the uneven hem detail.
If you’re hoping for some fancier options, it looks like Tess has you covered with this crisscross top and midi skirt.
The only thing better than a one-off clothing collaboration is one that keeps on delivering. The first drop of the mblm by Tess Holliday collection has some amazing pieces, and it just makes us even more excited to see what’s next. Can we have a preview of the May launches, please?
