Gabrielle Union relies on her relationship with New York & Company.
The “Cheaper by the Dozen” actress launches a new footwear collection with the brand on Thursday. For her first shoe venture with New York & Company, Union felt the time was right, calling it a “natural progression.”
“I knew I wanted to expand my collection in a new and creative way, and the shoes were the natural progression of my line,” Union told FN. “Launching my very first shoe collection is a personal milestone, and I’m thrilled to bring this new collection to consumers.”
The new Gabrielle Union Footwear collection includes a luxurious range of boots, heels, flats and sneakers for spring and summer. According to New York & Company, the range is made with high quality materials and designed with comfort and style in mind, including increased foam in the sole of each shoe for extra support. Expect to see a variety of neutral tones and pops of spring color.
As for what’s next, Union is teasing more to come. “I can’t wait to see what’s to come as I expand the collection with more styles for each season,” Union said.
This shoe collection comes after the announcement this month that Union would be relaunching its collaboration with plus-size women’s retailer Fashion to Figure after its first collection with the Saadia group-owned brand in 2019. The spring collection, which has dropped March 10, included a variety of daytime, dressy and special occasion pieces. It was also offered in straight sizes at New York & Company, which is also part of the Saadia group.
Union’s first collection with New York & Company launched in fall 2017 as part of a multi-year partnership. Since then, the line has proven to be a hit, with clients praising the actress for emphasizing positivity and inclusivity.
Recently, Union also collaborated with children’s clothing brand Janie and Jack with her husband, former NBA star Dwyane Wade, and their three-year-old daughter, Kaavia.
The new Gabrielle Union shoe collection, which retails for between $79.95 and $129.95, launches today on nyandcompany.com.
