Mollie King unveiled a dreamy new collection for high street store Oasis last night as she was named the brand’s first celebrity style ambassador.
The Saturdays’ star Mollie shared the 45-piece capsule collection, handpicked herself and appropriately named ‘Loved By Mollie,’ at a swanky dinner at London’s Soho hotel.
The collection houses some of AW13’s most coveted trends like oversized coats in pastel colours, leather midi skirts and tapestry prints to form a series of day-to-night looks pulled specifically by the star.
‘I had to be very brutal,’ she told us. ‘I could only pick a small custom edit but I knew exactly what I wanted and it looks even better now that it’s all come together.’
Having championed the fashion brand for her many years in The Sats, Mollie picked the Oasis collaboration to be an early step in what she hopes to be an exciting new fashion career as the star also spent the evening celebrating a recent signing with Next model management.
Though the singing star had chosen to go solo on this project, she told us that The Saturdays girls had given her plenty of support for the collection, and that her biggest fans – her family – pretty darn excited about receiving her fashion hand-me-downs.
‘My sisters fight over all of my old clothes,’ she said. ‘They call dibs on the things they know I’ll only wear once or twice.’ Wise move, ladies.
The ‘Loved By Mollie’ collection hits stores and online today and, while we view the new collection in full, we can’t help but wonder how good it would be to be Mollie King’s sister…
