UK: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to design M&S lingerie line
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley turns designer for M&S lingerie range
British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is to turn designer for the first time, with a new lingerie range for high street retailer Marks & Spencer.
The model is the face of the retailer's Autograph range, and the Rosie for Autograph collection is set to launch in September.
"We are so pleased to have Rosie on board to design her first collection for us, she really understands beautiful lingerie and what works on the body," said Kate Bostock, executive director of clothing for M&S.
"With all her modelling experience she has great eye for colour and style which, coupled with our extensive knowledge in lingerie design and technique, is a winning formula that we can't wait to share with our customers."
The Twenties-style collection will feature 33 pieces including silk lingerie sets, cami and French knicker sets, a teddy and a kimono style robe.
