As we reported here, designer Rachel Roy and basketball player Amare Stoudemire have been rumored to be collaborating on a line for a while.
Today they confirmed the rumor to Women’s Wear Daily , telling them what we can expect from their line :
Roy says, “I am channeling a girl that goes to sporting events…She goes to basketball events or maybe football events. She needs something that is modern, something that represents her in a way that doesn’t look like it just came out of a sporting goods shop…I think I would like to teach girls that you don’t necessarily have to wear high heels to watch sports, but you can be casually chic.” Hmm, I wonder who she could be referring to…
About the collaboration, Amare added, “I pretty much let her drive the car and I am just being the maintenance man. Basketball is a natural thing for me, and I have been playing basketball as long as I can remember, but designing is new to me. I never had to pick out sketches.”
Should be interesting. The collection will be available in select Macy’s, with prices ranging from $45-$250.
Does it sound like something you would rock?
