Jan 28, 2016
Supermodel Claudia Schiffer is making the transition to designer with the launch of her own fashion line.
The German beauty is teaming up with cashmere brand TSEcashmere.com on her own collection, WWD reports. The 40-piece collection will be officially unveiled this week.
This isn't the first time that Schiffer has worked with the brand -- in fact, she collaborated with the label last fall on a collection titled "Claudia Schiffer for TSE Cashmere." However, this is the first time has completely overseen the design of the pieces under the title of Creative Director.
"My collaboration with TSE was such a positive experience that the obvious next step was to launch my own line, with TSE producing it," Schiffer told the publication, adding that the collection will include: "amazing cashmere yarns with details of multicolor jacquards and Fair Isles, creating a line of casually chic separates for everyday."
The collection was inspired by the model's travels in southern Spain, and features bright tones of sky blue and sunset red, with the pieces designed to be simple and worn with denim and accessories.
Schiffer is the latest in a long line of models to turn their hands to fashion design -- earlier this month, Heidi Klum announced that she would be developing her successful lingerie business by adding a swimwear line, and in December it was revealed that Gigi Hadid is set to collaborate with Tommy Hilfiger on a capsule collection for Fall 2016.
