[dt_quote type=”pullquote” layout=”right” font_size=”h3″ animation=”none” size=”2″]One of the best parts of a woman’s body is that curve and I go a little bit higher on all of my things to show off the best part of the hourglass.” – Melissa McCarthy[/dt_quote]
“Women do not stop at a size 12!”
That is what Melissa McCarthy is saying with her new clothing line Seven7, which is launched this fall in sizes US 4-28 (UK 6-30, EU 34-58). According to Vogue, the line is comprised of “everything a woman needs,” Melissa says, from dresses and tailored separates to denim, all priced under $150: “The fun of it is you should be able to put these things together and not have to make a choice about going out to dinner or getting the sweater. Wear the sweater to dinner.”
In that same Vogue interview, Melissa McCarthy also said that to look for the truly signature element in the collection, one must look within. “I want pockets in my dresses,” she says emphatically. “I put pockets in everything! I want pockets inside my pockets.”
In another interview with PEOPLE, McCarthy said: “I started this line because I wanted to know: Where are the normal clothes? This really is a selfish venture. I wanted to build a better closet for myself.”
I am very much looking forward to this collection! I think many of styles need to be in my closet – especially all the tops/shirts Melissa is wearing herself in the three fotos seen below :)
The line will appear in Nordstrom, Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s, Lane Bryant, Evans UK, MelissaMcCarthy.com and other stores too.
