If you're not in love with Eva Longoria's polished, put together sense of style, you'd be an outlier. The actress, producer, and director can now add another title to her list: Designer. Eva Longoria and The Limited are collaborating on a collection that's due to hit stores this August, according to WWD. Be prepared to get excited, cause this one's gonna be good.
At 41 years old, she's got a pretty impressive resume already. But she's not stopping there. While she's created a collection for J.C. Penney before for home goods, she's now moving into the realm of fashion. Her collection for The Limited is set to launch on August 15 in all of its 250 locations in the U.S. and online, according to YahooStyle.
While she learned to sew as a kid, she didn't become interested in creating patterns until she was in high school. And, taking tips from the costume designer on Desperate Housewives, she learned to make some of her own clothing, according to WWD. You'd never know, though, seeing her on the Red Carpet and at events wearing polished blazers, bold dresses, and sexy pencil skirts. The point is: This woman knows how to dress for her body.
According to WWD, her line will feature "two of The Limited's key categories — stretch denim and the bodycon dress — and is priced 15 to 25 percent higher than its core retail price of $49 to $160, with elevated fabrics such as an extra-strength power knit, bouclé, PVs that feel like real napa leather and polyesters that drape like silk." Which seems totally on brand for both parties.
What I love most about this new line is that it's meant to transition from the work week to the weekend flawlessly. And that, I'm all about. I've been focusing on building a wardrobe that I can wear 24/7, so I look polished and put together wherever I go. But it's not all serious, though. Graphic t-shirts will also be available, reading things like "Life is too short to drink bad wine," and "Money doesn't make you happy, wine does," WWD reports. Sold. I love a good glass of wine.
And, anticipating it's release, The Limited will show off three to four limited-edition dresses on their website starting on July 25. The full collection will be available a few weeks later, on August 15. I certainly now have something exciting to look forward to this summer!
