The following is a press release from Rebel Wilson x Angels:

This fall, Rebel Wilson will be delivering a contemporary collection for women size 14 and up. This signature concept from the Australian entertainment icon is rooted in the belief that style has no size. Offering trend-right silhouettes in high quality fabrications, REBEL WILSON X ANGELS launches with a Fall 2017 collection that starts delivering to Nordstrom, Dillards, Lord & Taylor, and Dia & Co this July. The collection will be available online and in store through these retailers.

Wilson has been working to create the right looks and fit for the line. Says Wilson, “When I worked on plus-size capsule collections in the past, it was such a fun and rewarding experience that I really wanted to break out with my own line. I’m so excited that these designs will reach more people and remain available all year round.”

REBEL WILSON X ANGELS collection ranges from everyday essentials to versatile statement pieces in a size run from 14 to 24. At the core of the line is a range of denim essentials, many constructed with LYCRA® Beauty fabric, an innovative material that shapes and sculpts for an incredibly flattering look and feel. The collection also includes an amazing assortment of everyday staples with edge, from graphic tees and statement tops to suede moto jackets, varsity jackets and bombers. Other items include occasion dresses that demand attention thanks to textural interest, eye-catching embellishments, flirty, feminine detailing and strong prints and palettes.

The collection’s bold attitude and fashion-forward aesthetic is a celebration of its eponymous muse, Rebel Wilson, whose daring humor and dynamic personal style has won over fans around the world – and whose very name means defying convention. Every piece is designed to celebrate the figure, not hide it, and give the wearer the confidence to be her own Rebel.

“I know how hard it can be to find the cool, quality fashion I want to wear, even with the help of Hollywood stylists,” says Wilson. “I’m so proud to be creating this collection with The Mamiye Group, and to give gorgeous ladies everywhere amazing clothes that empower them to express their confidence and chic attitude.”

“Women of all sizes want the confidence and empowerment that comes from fashion-forward style,” says Charles D. Mamiye, President and CEO of Mamiye Group. “REBEL WILSON X ANGELS is a contemporary collection that offers fresh, exciting designs for women sizes 14-24, inspired by an icon.”

REBEL WILSON X ANGELS will land in select retailers stores nationwide for Fall 2017. Retail prices range from $49 to $298.

Rebel will be personally promoting the line starting July and will be utilizing her social media fanbase with the hashtag: #GetYourRebelOn. Additionally Rebel wears a number of pieces from the collection in her upcoming film PITCH PERFECT 3 released worldwide in December 2017.
