We’ve got to admit we were a little sceptical when we first heard that one of the original supermodels, YasminLeBon, had signed up to do a collaboration with Wallis. But then we heard that Yasmin had been full-on involved with her range, heading into the Arcadia offices three times a week. This wasn’t just another A-list lending her name to a brand – Yasmin wanted every piece to be something she would be proud to wear herself. And wear it she did. The supermodel started showcasing her series of brightly coloured floor-length ensembles earlier this year. There was the long lime green maxi that she chose to wear to the Gorbachev Gala, and the sequin cardi that received a serious stamp of approval when 20-year-old daughter Amber chose to wear it out just last month. So why now? ‘I just realised I couldn’t find what I wanted on the high street,’ Yasmin says in this exclusive behind-the-scenes video from the campaign shoot for her new line. ‘There was no colour and not enough texture to the fabrics.’ Judging by the velvet trouser suits and full-length jersey dresses that form the heart of Yasmin’s collection then – launching on 12 September – it looks like the whole line is designed to hang in her own wardrobe.
