A sequined bomber jacket, anyone?
Brooklyn-born singer Bebe Rexha, best known as the guest vocalist in G-Eazy’s “Me, Myself & I” and David Guetta’s “Hey Mama,” is making her first foray into fashion.
The performer has teamed with Gilt on an 11-piece capsule collection of one-of-a-kind jackets embellished with some of her lyrics, including “The Way I Are,” “F–k Fake Friends,” and “Bad Bitch.”
“I personally love jackets and always try and put a jacket with my outfit even if my stylist says no,” says Rexha, who works with Chris Classen. “There’s so much versatility in what a jacket can look and feel like that I wanted to explore that.”
The collection, priced from $169 to $4,800, is inspired by Rexha’s personal style, which she describes as “fun, flirty and comfortable.” She shares that her favorite pieces from the collab are the hand-airbrushed denim jacket with The Way I Are album artwork and the “Bad Bitch” distressed white denim jacket. Other offerings include a sequined bomber, a multicolor star-print fuzzy jacket and a denim jacket covered in studs.
Much like creating music, Rexha finds that the design process requires “patience, time and dedication. It’s not something you can rush — it takes time to create,” she says. “It’s really cool to have the ideas in my head turn into the real thing. The whole process from start to finish was all so new to me so it was all really exciting.”
The range drops Friday, the same day of the release of her new album, All Your Fault: Pt. 2, which Rexha teases, “There are so many great featured artists on it — Gucci Mane, Lil’ Wayne, Florida Georgia Line. It’s a lot of fun and something I think my fans will really get down to!”
Next up, Rexha is scheduled to perform “Back at You” with Louis Tomlinson at Sunday’s Teen Choice Awards in L.A. before heading to New York to perform at the Billboard Hot 100 Fest, held Aug. 19-20.
