Dua Lipa announces capsule collections for /Nyden

But some fans are upset about the available sizes.

May 28, 2018

On Friday, Dua Lipa announced that she's working with /Nyden, the seasonless brand owned by H&M, on four capsule collections, available later this year. Vogue UK reports that's she's the latest in the new brand's collaborations with influencers across various builds, including Justine Skye, tattoo artist Dr. Woo, and Noomi Rapace. In a video shared on Instagram, the pop star assured fans that the collections would be made with her first love, music, in mind.

"My first love is music, but fashion also plays an important role in my life because I believe it’s so vital to self-expression," she wrote in the announcement video's caption. "I look for clothes that reflect strength and fearlessness, but also match up to today’s fast pace. So I’m excited to be co-creating with /Nyden on my designs – it’s going to be a collection that’s completely suited to me, both onstage and off, and for my fans."

Still, Teen Vogue notes that some fans are upset at the brand's claim of accessibility, which Lipa said on Twitter could include unisex pieces, since the collection appears to cap off at size 16, leaving a whole of potential consumers without options. The line won't be released until fall, however, giving the brand plenty of time to expand the sizing.
