Amy Schumer is adding “fashion designer” to her résumé.
The comedian, 37, will launch a clothing line in collaboration with her stylist, Leesa Evans. The brand, dubbed Le Cloud, will be sold exclusively at Saks Off 5th beginning December 13 and feature “wardrobe essentials for women of all shapes and sizes,” according to Women’s Wear Daily.
The 28-piece collection includes tops, pants, skirts, jumpsuits and more — all in fabrics that “feel like a cloud,” hence the name — priced from $38 to $248 and in sizes ranging from 0 (or XS) to 20 (or XXL).
“Getting dressed has always been really stressful for me. I never had that thing where I knew how to put together a good outfit that I felt great in,” Schumer told WWD. “I was more apt to take myself out of the equation and dress way down so that people knew I wasn’t even trying.”
That is, until Schumer met Evans on the set of her movie “Trainwreck,” where she was the costume designer, and later commissioned her as her personal stylist.
“She taught me about proportions, and she taught me that I could feel comfortable in something other than sweatpants,” Schumer explained of Evans. “The tools that she gave me for feeling comfortable and feeling that I could reach my full potential, and I was more worthy to be out in the world in an outfit. I wanted to pass that on to every woman.”
To that end, 30 percent of net proceeds from Le Cloud’s sales will be donated to Community Partners, a not-for-profit organization in support of the Stylefund project, a program Schumer and Evans founded in 2017 that aims to empower women through fashion.
Although Le Cloud isn’t a maternity line, the “I Feel Pretty” star — who is expecting her first child with husband Chris Fischer — said she’s been wearing the pieces on “big belly days.”
And she’s not above hawking her own product: “Whenever my schedule and my pregnancy allows, I’ll be in people’s dressing rooms with [the clothes],” Schumer said.
