Want to dress like Cookie Lyon? Head on over to Saks Fifth Avenue.
The retailer and hit Fox series have partnered up to bring clothing worn on broadcast TV’s top drama to stores and online, timed to the Season 2 premiere in September.
The collections will include fine jewelry from Alexis Bittar, women’s ready-to-wear from Cushnie et Ochs, men’s and women’s footwear from Jimmy Choo and handbags and accessories from MCM.
Additionally, “Empire”-curated windows will be on display at Saks Fifth Avenue’s New York and Beverly Hills flagships from Sep. 10 through Oct. 7.
“Empire” actor Trai Byers will also be featured on the cover of Saks Fifth Avenue’s fall magazine in Saks Fifth Avenue Collection’s Fabric No. 1.
Finally, Saks will host a September launch event in New York and men’s luxury made-to-measure suiting events throughout September and October at locations in New York, Beverly Hills, Chicago, Boston, Houston, Bal Harbour, San Francisco and Atlanta.
“This unprecedented partnership with Saks Fifth Avenue, Alexis Bittar, Cushnie et Ochs, Jimmy Choo and MCM celebrates ‘Empire’s’ mark on the fashion world,” says Jeffrey Godsick, president, Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products. “The influence ‘Empire’ has had on so many aspects of popular culture proves it has the ingredients to become a stand-alone fashion brand.”
“The lines between fashion and entertainment are intersecting,” said Marc Metrick, president Saks Fifth Avenue. “Harnessing this moment is a key underpinning to our strategy as it brings energy and uniqueness to the shopping experience at Saks.”
“Empire” returns to Fox for Season 2 on Sep. 23 at 9 p.m. ET.
