Cardi B's New Clothing Collab Was A Sell-Out And We Can See Why
Gucci? Chanel? YSL? No, it's FASHIONNOVA X CARDIB, b*tch.
Cardi B surprised us all when she dropped her new clothing line, FASHIONNOVA X CARDIB, on Wednesday, hours before the planned release at midnight.
"I love you guys so much I decided to do it a little bit earlier," the chart-topper explained in a video on Instagram.
Less surprising was how quickly the 82 piece collection flew off the e-boutique's shelves, so to speak.
Like, literally everything in the affordable-yet-chic line had G-O-N-E in a few hours. Check those 'sold out' stickers, guys.
Little wonder, too.
Each piece -- from the faux-fur floor-length coats to the cute tweed twin sets and ~groovy~ velvet bell-bottoms -- is a direct reflection of Cardi's love of haute couture fashion.
The 'Bodak Yellow' rapper cited luxe labels like Moschino, Mugler and Balmain as her inspo for the range, which rings in at a far less exxy price tag -- think $17 for a boob tube up to $275 for a faux-snakeskin jacket.
"I wanted to do something like 'wow what is that? Is that Chanel? Is that YSL? Is that Gucci? No, b*tch, it's FASHIONNOVA by Bardi'" she quipped on Insta.
Clearly, people are feelin' it, and we are too.
The grey tweed skirt and cropped jacket that the 26-year-old rocked at the launch party in Hollywood on November 14 was giving us major Cher Horowitz from Clueless vibes.
The rest of the range is a playful homage to the sartorial highlights of the past few decades: '70s disco, '80s power-dressing and '90s minimalist cool.
Bardi didn't skimp on the little touches, either, naming each of the pieces after some of her most famous lyrics or catchphrases.
See the 'OKURR' maxi skirt, 'Boss Bitch Mood' jacket dress and 'A Gangsta In A Dress' mini dress for example.
If you wanna get your hands on Cardi's gear, there is hope.
The Bronx babe shared news on Insta that select pieces will be restocked for the huge Black Friday sales on November 23. The rest of the range should be refreshed in the coming weeks.
