Key items from the press release:
Coined “TTYA x Long Tall Sally,” this 18-piece collection launches in the U.S. for autumn / winter 2014, offering cutting-edge trends to tall women across the country.
The designer behind TTYA, British fashion stylist Irene Agbontaen, was no stranger to the woes of finding clothes that fit. Standing 5’11”, Irene was tired of constantly tugging at her sleeves and pant legs, so she launched TTYA in 2013. TTYA quickly became the go-to label for ultra-cool jersey staples for tall women and was stocked at Barneys, ASOS and Selfridges.
This fall, TTYA joins forces with Long Tall Sally for a limited-edition collection with an unbeatable combination: Irene’s unique eye for style paired with LTS’s expertise in tall fit and design.
“We’re thrilled about the partnership with TTYA,” said Andrew Shapin, CEO of Long Tall Sally. “By joining forces, we are able to offer another dimension to our customers, making LTS a true one-stop-shop for tall fashion.”
The capsule collection is inspired by Irene’s passion for fashion and music, boasting key items including the textured, oversized “yeti coat,” white scuba biker jacket, overly distressed denim jeans, and more. Prices range from $42 for a burnout tee, to $135 for a metallic maxi dress, to $195 for a coat. Sizes run from 4-14.
“For me, the collection was inspired by building on the tall woman’s core staples, making them accessible and fashionable. You can put your own stamp on the collection by mixing it up or keeping it simple with a statement piece,” says Irene about TTYA x Long Tall Sally.
Photographed by Alex Sainsbury and modeled by Irene’s close friend, Jamie Gunns, TTYA x Long Tall Sally offers the ultimate tall girl capsule wardrobe with impeccable fit and head-turning style. The collection will be available this fall, online at www.LongTallSally.com and in select LTS brick-and-mortar stores.
