It’s a big week for Taylor Swift. Her long-awaited seventh studio album, Lover, is dropping on Friday – and ahead of its release, she’s just announced a surprise fashion collaboration with Stella McCartney.
The singer and ethical fashion designer have partnered up to create a limited-edition line of clothing and accessories, inspired by the lyrics and themes in Taylor’s upcoming record.
The cotton candy collection fits in perfectly with the cover of the singer’s new album, which she revealed on Instagram last month. The pair say they also took inspiration from vintage band tees.
2. One of the items costs £1,335/AED5,956.56
Prices for the collection have not yet been announced, but Vogue has revealed that a limited-edition sustainable viscose bomber jacket – thought to be one of the pricier items of the bunch – will cost an eye-watering £1,355.
5. The collab came naturally
When Swift started spending more time in the UK (presumably to be near her British boyfriend Joe Alwyn) she told Vogue that McCartney was one of the friends she regularly hangs out with.
“When I started spending more time in London, Stella and I would go on walks, have cocktails and talk about life,” she told the magazine. “So, when it came time to write this album, I name-checked her in one of my songs and when I played her the album, I said, ‘Should we do something?’”
The rest, they say, is history.
6. There may be hidden clues about Taylor’s new album
Swift loves hiding cryptic hints about her new album in her work, and her latest fashion collab is no different.
Eagle-eyed fans couldn’t help but notice that two phrases, ‘Like a Tennessee Stella McCartney’ and, ‘Summer’s a knife,’ were totally new to the Swift back catalogue. Could they be lyrics from her upcoming release? Frustratingly, we’ll have to wait to find out.
7. It’ll be available to shop later this week
The entire collection will be available at The Lover Experience Taylor Swift Pop Up Shop in New York from August 23 -25.
If you happen to be in the US city, Swift is expected to announce more about the shop’s whereabouts – plus prices for the collection – during a YouTube live event on Thursday.
If you can’t make it down to New York, a limited edition bag and the £1,335/AED5,956.56 bomber from the collection will be available for exclusive order on StellaMcCartney.com from the evening of August 22.
You’ll also be able to purchase these two items exclusively at Stella McCartney standalone stores in London and New York from August 23, although you’ll have to be quick – as one they’ll likely sell out fast.
