On December 5th, it was announced that Urban Outfitters and Ariana Grande have collaborated on a UO-exclusive capsule collection in celebration of the 24-year-old’s Dangerous Woman Tour and album.
Produced in partnership with merchandise and brand management company Bravado, the tees, hoodies, jackets, hat and sweatpants feature previously unreleased designs and photos of the “Side to Side“ singer with graffiti style wording throughout and even an appearance from boyfriend, Mac Miller. Tour dates appear on the back of each piece.
Grande’s seven-month world tour wrapped in September and reportedly raked in $71 million, thanks to 75 headlined performances and 875,000 overall tickets sold. Compared to the pop star’s 2015 Honeymoon Tour, her most recent stint was increased by 70 percent, selling 70,000 more tickets in a shorter period of time.
The nine-piece assortment of apparel ($34–$299) will launch Friday at 5 p.m. in-store at all North American retailers, followed by an e-commerce release on the brand’s website on Monday.
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!
On March 2, Ariana Grande’s Lipsy London collection was finally released, and there are tons of outfits and jewellery that you could choose from. She also talked to press about the collection along with general things, below which is an interview with Reveal. Check it all out below!
When singer Ariana Grande announced a clothing collaboration with high-street fashion hotspot Lipsy earlier last month, we may have squealed the office down…
Fast forward to today and the drop has officially landed, and as promised, it’s awash with gorgeously girly frocks, fierce monochrome co-ords and seriously sassy cropped tops – not to mention a whole hoard of totally wearable accessories.
Speaking exclusively to Reveal, the songstress spills all about her fabulous new haul including where she nabbed the style inspiration from…
Hi Ariana! How would you describe your style?
My signature look is pretty much always feminine, flirty with a nod to the 50s and 60s retro silhouettes. I also have a big floral and pastel obsession right now which I’ve made sure to incorporate into my new line with Lipsy.
We’re so excited to land our hands on the collection. Give us the lowdown on everything!
Lipsy were so great to work with and I can’t believe I was able to collaborate with them to make this collection. They made the process so much fun! From the fabric, to the cuts, to the photo shoot, I’ve been so involved and I really hope the Lipsy girls and my fans love it. Modelling the range was a fun moment for me.
The biker jacket is such a wardrobe staple. It’s so versatile and can be paired with almost anything and the little peek-a-boo cut detail on the black fitted Bardot dress makes it a special LBD for your closet. The two monochrome skirts in the collection can be dressed up or down and would be great paired with the lace crop top and the red maxi dress makes a bold statement.
Who is your biggest style icon – alive or dead?
Audrey Hepburn! I literally love everything she has ever worn. Her style is classic but still girly, it’s very me.
From the stunning new collection, which one piece in particular have you been wearing to death?
I’m obsessed with the white floral bandeau dress. It’s fun, flirty, feminine and just super cute. I think it’s a dress you could easily dress up with heels and a clutch for a special occasion or keep casual with sandals and the biker jacket for a daytime look.
What do you tend to watch the most of on YouTube?
My friends and I love watching funny videos while on tour or after a long day of rehearsals and anything Disney!
Favourite Instagram filter?
What item would you wear to:
Wedding? The pink floral dress, who doesn’t love floral at a wedding?
Prom? I’d mix it up and go for the black lace crop top with the monochrome skirt. Its kind if a classic style with a modern twist.
Date Night? The black lace top dress. You instantly feel sexy as soon as you slip it on.
What trend do you love at the minute?
Crop tops! They’re cute, fun and sexy. I love teaming them with a skirt for a flirty and playful look. I have a few options of this style in my collection.
What’s your favourite emoji?
Not sure I could pick just one favourite! But this is an oldie but a goodie:
On March 2, Ariana Grande’s Lipsy London collection was finally released, and there are tons of outfits and jewellery that you could choose from. She also talked to press about the collection along with general things, below which is an interview with MailOnline. Check it all out below!
She’s already a pop sensation and beauty guru and now Ariana Grande has proved there’s no end to her talents after turning her hand to fashion design. The pint-sized pop princess has joined forces with British high-street retailer Lipsy to launch a 20-piece fashion range.
Speaking to MailOnline, the 22 year-old actress-turned-singer says the collection is ‘fun, feminine and totally affordable’ and says she feels ‘so lucky’ that she’s had the opportunity to create the range for her fans.
Ariana, who joins Michelle Keegan at the label, says the range offers a new ‘dynamic and directional route of strong fashion silhouettes, on-trend must-haves and wardrobe staples for those who want to make a real fashion statement.’
‘It is full of super cute dresses as well as more edgy separates and wardrobe must-haves. I really hope my fans will love it,’ said the star, who has a staggering 61.4m followers on Instagram. Ariana, who has made the Sixties look her signature, cites ‘eternal and timeless’ Audrey Hepburn as her style icon, as well as her friends and grandmother, who she affectionately calls ‘nonna’.
There’s a ‘Riviera chic’ daywear collection of chic midi skirts and blouses, an array of prom dresses and party wear in Ariana’s signature ‘fit and flare’ shape style. The colour palette is predominantly monochrome with silver and pale nudes and fabrics are thick structured satins, lace, and embroidered organza.
‘I will be so honoured when I see anyone wearing the collection, I can’t even think about anything else,’ she said. Hoping to keep things purse-friendly for her fans, prices start from £35 for dresses and skirts and £32 for tops. The creative star has also added a 30-piece jewellery range with her trademark cat ears and ear cuffs.
Of course, Ariana models the entire range herself and displays her trim figure in the campaign shots. So what’s the secret behind her slim physique? ‘I have been a vegan for the last few years and it has been a great experience for me,’ she revealed.
‘I try and live a healthy lifestyle; eating right, exercise and sleep are all so important. ‘I try and stay really active all the time. I like to hike when I can and being on stage is a great workout.’ Whilst she says her schedule can be tiring, she ‘absolutely loves’ what she does and feels really blessed so just tries to live in the moment.
‘I have a great team around me to help me and surrounding myself with family and friends really helps too,’ she added. Ariana has had a stellar career to date after shooting to fame in 2013 and becoming one of the most famous females in pop.
The former Disney star has a combined social media reach across her official accounts of over 115 million fans, as well as being one of the top 10 most followed Instagram users in the world. But the pop princess isn’t resting on her laurels. ‘There is so much left to do!’, she said. ‘I love making music and I can’t wait for my fans to hear my new album.’
On March 2, Ariana Grande’s Lipsy London collection was finally released, and there are tons of outfits and jewellery that you could choose from. She also talked to press about the collection along with general things, below which is an interview with Miss Vogue. Check it all out below!
Don’t get mistaken that with multiple number one singles, 61 million Instagram followers (yes, way more than either Jenners) and boasting an accomplished TV career, Ariana Grande feels like her CV is full. Instead, quite the opposite. Working with Lipsy, the pint-sized popstar is the latest famous face to create her own clothing line and the offering is 100 per cent Ariana. Signature-style skater skirts and cut-out mini-dresses come in candy-pop colours, while lacy crop tops and slinky LBDs would fit right into her on-stage wardrobe.
“I really wanted to do something special for my fans and I am so grateful Lipsy gave me this opportunity. It’s playful, flirty and affordable so I think there is something for everyone. I really hope my fans love it! Honestly, I will just be so honoured to see anyone wearing the collection!,” Ariana told Miss Vogue.
Naturally, when it came to designing the collection, the first place she looked was to her own wardrobe. “We had a lot of images from Instagram and Pinterest as well as some of my favourite red-carpet looks I’ve worn in the past.” The 23-piece collection also features the pieces she relies on to feel most confident: skater dresses and co-ord tops and skirts.
For her red-carpet appearances, Ariana works with a stylist, explaining that recently she has taken a new direction with her sartorial choices, which have been influenced by the sounds of her new album (rumoured to be called Dangerous Woman). “My new music has a bit of an edge to it and I’ve been having fun incorporating that into my style. For the Grammys we really wanted to do something classic with that edge – I loved the Ramona Keveza gown I wore! I think it is important to stay true to who you are and pick things that you really really love.”
Starting out on Nickelodeon as a pre-teen, Ariana admits to having had a fair few outfit blunders: “Who hasn’t?! I’ve been on TV since I was little so there are lots of funny pictures to look back on and say: ‘What was I thinking?!'” She’s since learnt what works for her in and out of the public eye. On lazy days she sticks to a uniform of Victoria’s Secret Pink pyjamas, but when stepping out she will always rely on a heel: “If you are as petite as I am, heels really help make an outfit.”
But in the mist of clothing upgrades, there is one thing that has stayed a constant: the Ariana Grande ponytail. An on-stage tool that comes into play when flicked and swooshed around and serves well for an over-the-shoulder pose. “I have just always worn my hair that way because its super easy, so I suppose it kind of unintentionally became my signature look.” The secret? “I rely on a really good brush and lots of hairspray.”
With a social-media fan base almost touching 100 million, Ariana is a popstar totally aware of her moral responsibilities. In the past she has voiced her first-hand experiences of gender inequality in the music business and is an ardent feminist. “I think it’s important to speak up about issues that matter and I believe we all have a responsibility to use our voices to help make a difference,” she confesses. “I wish people would be nicer to one another, especially on social media where comments can be so cruel.”
Her floor-filling anthems are rooted in girl power and her Instagram often plays host to images of inspirational women. She name checks Madonna, Audrey Hepburn and Maya Angelou as some of her favourite idols, while the pair at the top of her list is her mum and “nonna” confessing that she couldn’t imagine her life without them.
It’s also her close-knit Italian-American family that she relies on to keep her grounded when the fame game gets a bit too much. “I am so lucky to have them all around a lot. When I do start to feel it, I know I can always count on them to make me feel better.”
The other support she credits: the Arianators, with whom she is looking forward to sharing her new music. “I am just really excited about making music that I love and that my fans love. I mean, without my fans I’d be nothing! They are the most supportive and loving fans. I like to be able to connect with them and share my life with them.”
Whenever her next new tour begins, no doubt there will be a current theme running throughout the audience: Arianators wearing her Lipsy signature styles.
On February 3rd, it has been announced that Ariana Grande will be part of the celebrity collection of the UK clothing store Lipsy London, and she will be having her own clothing line! It has been announced on the official Twitter of Lipsy London earlier today:
She will be launching a 20-plus piece collection for Spring 2016, which will be followed by a Summer 2016 collection.
It’s described as taking direct influences from her iconic performance style with a “directional route of strong fashion silhouettes, on-trend must-haves and wardrobe staples for those who want to make a real fashion statement.”
What we’re most excited about is that alongside the romantic florals and crochet lace, there’s apparently set to be a whole lot of edgy geometric monochrome with pieces designed around her signature ‘fit and flare’ dresses and love of bralet and skirt co-ords.
There’ll be items for every occasion too, with both more understated looks for the daytime and jazzier evening and party pieces.
She said: “It’s so great getting to collaborate with Lipsy to do something special for my fans. The line is youthful, affordable and I know my fans will love it.”
Prices for her pieces are expected to start at £35 for dresses and skirts, with tops at around £32.
We’re so excited, because Arianators have been waiting for so many years for Ariana to have her own clothing line! Are you going to buy one of her outfits?
