Laquan Smith, a Black New York-based luxury designer has teamed up with mega UK fashion retailer Asos.com. Laquan has designed exclusive looks for Beyoncé’s OTRII tour, and superstars such as Kim Kardashian and Cardi B are also fans of his pieces. He’s also known for featuring the infamous Clermont twins in his New York Fashion Week Runway show before Kanye put them in his Yeezy campaign.
This is Laquan’s first collaboration with the retailer, and he will launch a full range of men’s and women’s ready-to-wear and accessories collection exclusive to Asos.com. The Laquan Smith x Asos collection is due to drop in October just in time for the holidays.
When asked about the collection, Smith stated that he’s “overjoyed at the opportunity and new endeavor. LQS and ASOS is the perfect platform to cultivate new and creative forms of expression. We referenced some of the standout pieces from Laquan Smith collection and created a few special items specifically for the collaboration. I hope everyone loves it as much as I do.”
We’re happy that another Black designer is making moves in the fast-fashion industry. Get your coins, brother.
