Universal and accessible for everyone.’
We absolutely adore Dua Lipa and so it pains us to write that her new clothing range, or rather what she’s said about it, is totally wide of the mark.
The singer announced this week that she was releasing her capsule collection with /Nyden, a sister brand to H&M.
“I’m so excited for you to see these, can’t wait!” she wrote on Twitter.
Speaking to Vogue UK, she said that it was “exciting” to design her own clothes.
“I look for clothes that reflect strength and fearlessness, but also match up to today’s fast pace.
“So I’m excited to be co-creating with /Nyden on my designs – it’s going to be a collection that’s completely suited to me, both onstage and off, and for my fans.”
The news generated excitement from followers who wanted to know all about the range, including whether it would be inclusive.
In a tweet she’s since deleted, Dua told followers that the range would go up to a UK size 16 – not exactly universal or accessible.
A number of followers criticised her for not catering to plus-size women.
Dua has yet to respond to the criticism.
