Empire on FOX is dominating the airwaves and now the beauty and fashion industries, too!
Hood by Air is launching a limited-edition collection inspired by the hit show. Full of edgy, black sportswear looks and tongue-in-cheek accessories, the collection features the show’s stars and characters in an expectedly over-the-top way. There’s a “Snitchin” tee featuring Taraji P. Henson‘s face with a STOP sign over her mouth. The “Victory” Robe is embroidered with Cookie Lyon‘s famous catchphrase: “I want what’s mine.” Several other tops features the Lyon brothers (played by Bryshere Y. Gray and Jussie Smollett), other cast members (‘Camilla’ portrayed by Naomi Campbell and ‘Becky’ portrayed by Gabourey Sidibe) and the patriarch, Lucious Lyon, in an overexposed way. There’s also a few ‘Jamaican mesh’ (per the description on the Hood By Air website) maxi dresses with appliqued quotables, plus several Empire ‘newsprint’ pieces. And to top things off, there’s a particularly fun quilted pillow in backapack form, clutch form and imprinted on a tee. Die hard Empire fans will have a chuckle over this.
