The Tamara Mellon woman is foremost relevant, irreverent, and always on the strong side of sexy — all qualities that the supermodel embodies in a muse.
"Irina embodies strength, beauty, humor and has a great sense of style," says Mellon. "We worked together to capture her energy and her effortless style in this collection. Each style was thoughtfully designed to be sexy, edgy, and comfortable enough for women to keep going forward in life."
The capsule collection features three versatile styles — Sand Dune, Sun Valley and Escape — that speak to the woman who seeks adventure in her everyday life, and lives life boldly and unapologetically. Each style features technical design aspects to help keep the Tamara Mellon woman in motion, with an emphasis on comfort and wearability.
"I love the Tamara Mellon brand and Tamara’s vision," says Shayk. "Being female founded, and with 81% female employees, it truly supports the power of women! I’m happy to be a part of the mission and to collaborate with her. My new collection is fun and easy to wear. I hope you enjoy it!"
The collection, which launched with the Sand Dune style on June 1, will have additional drops throughout the month. The collection will be available only on TamaraMellon.com and in Tamara Mellon stores in New York and Los Angeles.
