It’s just been announced that Rebel Wilson is doing something exciting with clothing. (This time it doesn’t involve making a statement about the fashion industry by bending over.)

She helped designed a capsule collection for TORRID called REBEL FOR TORRID, and there will be jackets, dresses, bottoms, accessories, and tops like a Koala print t-shirt because Australia.

You’ll be able to buy the clothes (25 pieces priced from $28.50 to $125) in November, just in time for the season of giving to yourself. A Rebel Spring 2016 collection is also in the works, and the brand has always been dedicated exclusively to sizes 12 to 28.

Rebel describes it as “dope.” Will she ever stop doing lovable stuff?

I’ve had a ‘torrid’ affair with buying clothes all my life. I’ve never really felt like there’s a brand out there in the plus size world that is creating cool stuff, that fits well and is good quality yet affordable.

It’s really only been in the last few years that I’ve seen companies try. So it was awesome to team with Torrid, who I think are doing such a great job in making plus size fashion relevant and dope. I’ve been loving designing the clothes for my capsule collection. I’ve been putting my unique style and personal loves into the clothing and literally can’t wait for the collection to launch!

Liz Munoz, Torrid SVP of Design says the denim component will be particularly dope. “Rebel’s got a natural instinct for design. She’s been totally hands-on throughout the process. She cares about every detail, down to the diamanté rivet on the jeans. We love the results… she crushed it.”

We’re hoping this turns out awesome, but like a Craigslist ad for a pristine laundry hamper, we won’t know until see we see some photos. It’s still excellent news though. Hopefully Rebel will lend TORRID some of her rebellious whimsy.
