Filled with talent, sass, and drama, the first season of Empire was easy to fall in love with, but the second season will deliver even more to obsess over. Saks Fifth Avenue is releasing an Empire clothing line, making it possible to dress like your favorite characters, just in time for the second season's September release! You'll soon be able to buy the exact looks seen on the show.
According to The Wrap, the line will include jewelry from Alexis Bittar, women's ready-to-wear from Cushnie et Ochs, shoes from Jimmy Choo, and handbags from MCM. The collection shows what an influence the show has been on fashion designers and viewers alike. It's never been easier to channel your inner Cookie, and you'll have until September to practice your sassy confidence to go with the outfit.
The men's dapper looks will be part of the collection as well. Featured on the cover of Saks fall magazine, Trai Byers provides a sneak peek of the offerings. If the rest of the pieces are anything like the refined look he rocks in this photo, the collection is destined to be a hit for Empire fans and everyone else. I, for one, am very excited. I can think of far worse things than a bunch of Lucious Lyons walking around town.
The inside of the catalog shows tiny glimpses of what each character brought to the collection, and pairs fragrances with the looks, making it possible to fully embrace the essence of each persona. Of course, it wouldn't be a Cookie-inspired look without a little cheetah print. Take a look:
To get people ready for the release, Saks will be offering men's made-to-measure suiting events in September and October, according to The Wrap. But until then, keep an eye out for Empire-curated windows on display at flagship stores in New York and Beverly Hills.
