Singer working on new streetwear brand with high street retailer
Beyonce is set to launch a new clothing venture next year with retail tycoon Sir Philip Green, owner of Topshop, Dorothy Perkins and Miss Selfridge.
The singer has been working with Green’s Arcadia group on a new streetwear brand. A statement from the company reads: “We are developing our distribution globally for the launch of this exciting new brand in spring 2016.”
Green told the Evening Standard that the range will be sold in 20 countries worldwide.
The news comes as Arcadia reported operating profits up 5.5% to £251.6m. Sales for the 12 month period to August totalled at £2.06bn.
Meanwhile, Adele recently confirmed that the rumour that she turned down a collaboration offer from Beyoncé is untrue, adding, “I would never disrespect her like that.”
Speaking in an in-depth interview with Zane Lowe for his Beats 1 radio show, Adele explained that since her success she had learned how to turn down numerous offers, but would never turn down Beyoncé.
“There’s a rumour going round that I turned Beyoncé down. Which I would never be so disrespectful as to do. I’d never disrespect her like that,” she explained. “Obviously, like, Queen B ’til the day I die.”
