Dua Lipa’s New Clothing Line Only Goes to Size 16 & It’s Receiving Major Side-Eye

Dua Lipa is on fire in the music industry right now, but she’s about to break into the fashion world as well. You heard it here, folks, the singer is collaborating with clothing brand /Nyden to create a line that will drop this fall. According to Teen Vogue, /Nyden is owned by H&M, which gives it some serious clout, and Dua Lipa’s line is expected to drop with four capsule collections in total. 

This newfound love for designing clothes doesn’t come as that much of a shock to us, TBH, because we already know Dua Lipa’s been making her way up the fashion ladder with her bold fashion sense – she’s like the Meghan Markle of street style.

The singer posted a video about this new project on Instagram, saying: “My first love is music, but fashion also plays an important role in my life because I believe it’s so vital to self-expression. I look for clothes that reflect strength and fearlessness, but also match up to today’s fast pace. So I’m excited to be co-creating with /Nyden on my designs – it’s going to be a collection that’s completely suited to me, both onstage and off, and for my fans.”

Of course, fans are already getting hyped AF for the release. Practically every comment on her post was a positive one, with fans saying they can’t wait for the clothing line to drop and expressing the utmost support for her.

However, when people found out that the line isn’t as inclusive as it claims to be, with its highest size going up to a UK size 16, there was obv some backlash. One Twitter user wrote, “She says accessible for everyone? Not having plus sizes is not having it accessible to everyone.” If Dua Lipa really wants her line to take off, and to be truly accessible to everyone, maybe it’s best that she rethinks the sizing options. 

We already know Dua Lipa’s an advocate for women’s rights, so we’re expecting a lot from our boss babe. Hopefully in the future designs she’ll be able to expand the line to make it more accessible to all sizes, and not just have the hype for inclusivity be centered on talk rather than action.

I'm a Culture and Media student in New York City. I moved all the way from Southern California to pursue my dreams of writing style and entertainment pieces and becoming more and more myself. Some may consider me a film junkie, astrology queen, and an extreme vegan. But to me, I'm just a writer babe in the big city.
