“Empire’s” Lucious Lyon has collaborated with a fashion partnership with upscale retailer Saks Fifth Avenue .
Saks will feature a clothing line inspired by Lucious for him to wear on the show along with “Empire’s” entire hip-hop ensemble.
The“Empire” collection will launch a couple of weeks before the show’s season premiere on Sept. 23.
There will be an “Empire”-curated window display at Saks stores in New York and Beverly Hills from Sept. 10 through Oct. 7 — as well as a 272-page “magalog” with Trai Byers (the actor who plays Lucious and Cookie’s eldest son) on the cover.
Cushnie et Ochs, , Alexis Bittar, , Jimmy Choo and MCM will also contribute to “Empire”- designs in jewelry, ready-to-wear, shoes and handbags.
All will be available in-store, online and on-screen.
Their collective travails reveal them to be like any ambitious family — aside from an unique ability, as put by WWD.com, which first reported the deal, to “mix the swagger of hip-hop and the soulfulness of R&B with a distinct dose of glamor.
