New In: Torrid ups the fashion stakes

Torrid board

It’s been a long time coming but the plus-size sector is finally seeing more real fashion launches (rather than product that gives a nod to trends but is more about the sizing than the style). The latest launch is from fast-growing specialist retailer Torrid, with its Insider Collection.

This limited edition capsule collection launches today. Liz Munoz, Torrid SVP of Design, said it’s “all about unexpected details, like a playful fringe made from hand-knitted yarn or double tulle designed to give a dress just the right amount of dimension, so it’s incredibly flattering.”

What does that mean in the real world?  The 23-piece collection features tops, jackets, bottoms and dresses from $44.50 to $128.50. The higher price tag reflects the materials used, such as heavier weight ponte that creates a smoothing effect, textured knits, brushed yarn and embroidered jersey.

Highlights include a moto jacket in berry purple, a strapless jumpsuit, wrap dresses and crop tops. Many of the silhouettes are long and lean, as seen in the coats, vests, cardigans and skirts.

And it’s available in US sizes 12 to 28 (that’s 16 to 32 in UK sizes). Go Torrid!
