Cyndi Lauper's new fashion line on HSN
The ever-perky Cyndi Lauper will launch her new line of women’s apparel, jewelry and footwear Thursday on HSN.
In a WWD story, the singer, actress and songwriter said she was approached all through the 1980s to do a line. Now she’s ready to take the step and she’s doing it her way. She said the line is a nod to her favorite century of fashion – the 20th century.
Like so many other entertainers and celebrities who have ventured into the fashion business, Lauder said she wants to design clothes for women who are forgotten, to design clothes that accentuate women’s good points and minimizes the not so good.
These women love clothes but are left out of couture, she told WWD.
A Touch of Cyn’s 11-piece apparel collection revolves around a palette of red, white, black and ivory, along a floral print and leopard. A graphic T-shirt costs $39.90; a velvet coat, $249.90. Sizes range from XS to XXX. The six-piece jewelry collection features gold and silver tone pieces ranging from $39.95 to $79.95. Her two footwear styles are a lace-up bootie for $129.90 and a mule for $79.90.
Lauder, 64, said Baby Boomers don’t want to wear frumpy clothes. They want clothes that are funky and fun. Who better to deliver them?
During her appearance on HSN, she plans to talk about the history of fashion and how to wear some of the garments in the line. “I’ll talk about women and pushing it right to the edge, but not going over,” she said.
Lauper’s line will debut during a two-hour special Thursday during The List on HSN.
