Melissa McCarthy Is Bringing Back a Very '00s Trend With Her New Collab
Listen, we've seen it all at this point: the slow return of low-rise jeans, a brand new love for the bubble skirt, etc. So, when we found ourselves falling in love with a trucker hat — a questionable '00s trend we swore we wouldn't wear for again — we weren't too surprised.
Of course, it didn't hurt that the lip-printed piece was part of a new collaboration between Melissa McCarthy and Clare V., or that McCarthy expertly showed it off (along with a furry friend) in the accompanying campaign images.
The four-piece CV x Melissa McCarthy collection launches today, Sept. 10, with prices ranging from $35 (the hat) to $495 (a messenger bag). It also includes a sweet cravat necktie and a jaguar-spotted sweatshirt (available in size XS - XXL). According to a statement from Vivier, everything was "designed together with Melissa to bring joy to women — the same way she makes our lives brighter in everything she does."
McCarthy herself is a big fan of the designer and the brand, specifically the sweatshirts.
"I loved the fit, the feel and I loved that they said something — literally," she added via a statement. "Then I finally got to go to their design studio, and my eyes turned to hearts. What a creative, wonderful workspace! I knew I loved what they do, but now I knew that I loved how they did it."
An added bonus is that 10% of the purchase price of each piece will be donated to A Sense of Home, which Clare V. notes is "an organization that strives to prevent homelessness by creating first-ever homes for youth aging out of foster care with donated furniture and home goods."
