LOOK caught up with the popstar ahead of her latest Lipsy collection…
What do you get when you add Ariana Grande to Lipsy? A dreamy celeb collaboration, that’s what. Yep, there’s everything from lace shorties and crochet crop tops to figure-hugging bodycons and classic LBDs – and just when we thought things couldn’t get any better, we got the inside scoop from Miss Grande herself. Here’s everything you need to know about her brand new SS16 Lipsy collection…
What’s your favourite piece from the summer collection?
I’m loving the violet floral printed dress with the apron neck. Its super feminine and it’s a classic summer dress you’ll be able to wear year after year.
Which item is your summer must-have?
A crop top! I like them year round but they are perfect for summertime.
Which is your favourite piece from the summer jewellery collection?
I literally took the pom-pom earrings home with me straight after the shoot. I think they’re so playful and unique.
Which item would you wear if you were going to a festival?
The cute little playsuit with the floral design – it’s a perfect festival look as it is short and flirty but also super comfortable.
And for a date night?
I think one of the little black dresses- they are all so cute and simple. I love the updated versions in the collection especially the one with the exposed zipper.
Any new pieces or design elements that you were really feeling for in this range?
I really liked the cold shoulder that was in the last collection so we brought it back. The bow elements are so girly and the pink dress has the most amazing back bow.
Tell us a bit about the design process. When designing and brainstorming, where were you, what music was playing, what surrounded you? What time of day? Is this similar to your song writing process?
I loved being part of the design process. I get inspiration from everywhere and I loved looking at instagram for ideas. It was so amazing being able to work with the Lipsy team to make my ideas into reality! I’m so happy to have been finally able to make this collection for my amazing fans.
How have your fans reacted to your collection?
My fans are so amazing! To celebrate the first collection, Lipsy launched a sketch competition and the drawings were so beautiful and had so much effort go into them. I was blown away.
If you could pick any brand in the world to collaborate with, which would it be?
Lipsy has been great to work with! I am so glad they helped me make this collection for my amazing fans.
I am so excited for my new music. I really can’t wait for my album to be out!
