Could Adele Be Collaborating With Burberry On a Bespoke Plus-Size Line?
Rumors are flying that Adele will be collaborating with Burberry on a bespoke plus-size line. Oh, please let the rumors be true!
Could it be? Is Adele really teaming up with Burberry for a fabulous, bespoke, plus-sized line? Oh, please let it be true! Please oh please oh please!
Sadly, at the moment, we don’t know whether it’s actually happening. According to Vogue UK, though, rumors are floating about that the singer was approached by Burberry’s creative director, Christopher Bailey, about becoming an ambassador for the classy British fashion house—as well as asked to work with him on a bespoke line for curvy ladies. Neither Adele’s people nor Burberry’s have confirmed the news, though, so for the time being, they remain rumors. Sigh!
Fashionista points out that while the collaboration might be a little unusual—celeb designed collabs are usually “reserved for the high street,” as it were—it still makes a lot of sense. As they put it, “both Adele and Burberry have a quintessential British quality to them, and both are fiercely proud of their English heritage.” Sounds about right. Recall, too, that Burberry has dressed Adele for the red carpet a number of times. And hey, since the fashion house literally JUST showed their Spring 2013 collection, the time is ripe for an announcement, no?
As for us? We’re really hoping it’s true. Adele is all sorts of classy as well as amazingly talented, and we can’t think of anyone better to helm a project like this (eat that, Karl Lagerfeld!). “I’ve met Christopher Bailey a few times,” Adele has said previously; she continued, “I’ve always loved Burberry. I remember saving for three years to get my first bag before I got signed.” Hope springs eternal!
In other news, the mama-to-be and newlywed (how exciting!) is the next in a long line of fabulous musicians to sing a James Bond theme: Adele has been confirmed for the theme for the next Daniel Craig Bond flick, Skyfall. Skyfall hits cinemas on October 26. Everything’s coming up Adele!
