Only one day to go until we launch our debut collection with designer-duo Clements Ribeiro for Evans, ‘Swan’. We’ve loved hearing what you all think about the collection so far and we’re thrilled by the reaction from the fashion press for a long-overdue plus size designer collaboration.
From Vogue to The Telegraph, Marie Claire to LOOK Magazine, the fashion press have fallen for ‘Swan‘ and a high-fashion, elegant and wearable designer collaboration that is available to women in sizes 14-32. Here’s a snippet at what the fashion press have been saying.
If you have your eye on something in particular, the wait is almost over and you will be able to shop the Clements Ribeiro from 7am (GMT) tomorrow morning exclusively online at Evans.co.uk, EvansUSA.com and EvansMode.de.
We hope you love the collection as much as we do, and if you want to know more about Clements Ribeiro, here’s legendary fashion journalist Hilary Alexander to introduce them.
On Monday afternoon we hosted an afternoon tea at Evans HQ for some of our favourite UK bloggers to come in and get a sneak peek at our debut Clements Ribeiro for Evans collection, Swan, and have a dress up session where the lovely ladies could try on their favourite pieces from the collection.
The most popular items during the day were the red tea dress, the match stick print trousers, the bird print coat and the heart print tunic and dress. We’re happy to say that everyone seemed to love the collection and we loved hearing what the plus size fashion expert verdict was on the collection we’ve worked hard on to create a beautiful plus size high fashion collection for the high street.
The wait is almost over and the Clements Ribeiro Swan collection for Evans will be available exclusively online at evans.co.uk from Saturday 31st March 2012 and in the following UK stores from Monday 2nd April 2012:

You’ve booked that longed-for holiday and now you need to think about your holiday wardrobe. Swimwear can be a tricky item to get right, and can be a daunting item to shop for, but help is here! By using our guide to what swimwear will work for your shape you can get your poolside chic look polished.
The key to great swimwear is structure and support. This will make you feel confident and comfortable on the beach or at the pool, whether you opt for a bikini, a swimsuit, a tankini or a swim dress. Once you’ve decide what shape you want, you can play with colour and print for a look you’ll really love. You can then add accessories and cover-ups, like kaftans and sarongs, by shopping in our holiday shop.
Perfect Swimwear for Apple
Apple shapes have a softer and fuller middle with slimmer legs and bottom. Tankini shapes will cover mid-sections and v-neck tops with wide straps will be flattering and supportive for the bust area. A swimsuit with shapewear built in will help to smooth and minimize your tummy area, giving you beach confidence.
Perfect Swimwear for Hourglass
Compliment a curvy bust and hip by showing your defined waist. Make a feature of your waist with gathers and an underwired cup to give you support. Like Apple, a swimsuit with shapewear built in will help to smooth and minimize your tummy area, defining your waist even more.
Perfect Swimwear for Pear
Pear shapes have curvaceous hips and bottom with smaller bust and shoulders. Draw the eye up with a print on your top half with plain bottoms. Or try something a little different and opt for a feminine swim dress. The skirt will skim hips and upper thighs to offer you ultimate coverage and confidence.
Perfect Swimwear for Busty
For Busty support is key and will really make a difference to your overall beach style. Opt for padded cups, underwired or a concealed shelf bra with wider straps. A v-neck will also work really well, so opt for a bikini, tankini or swimsuit that has a lower neckline.
We’re only a few weeks away from the launch of the exclusive Clements Ribeiro for Evans collection, Swan. We’re so excited for you all to see our first collection with the iconic fashion duo Clements Ribeiro.
Clements Ribeiro is the partnership of husband and wife Inacio Ribeiro and Suzanne Clements. The couple met and graduated at Central St Martin’s design school and are now renowned around the world for the work which is routed in elegant shapes, bold colours and vintage inspired prints. Here’s a bit about the collection from Inacio himself.
‘Suzanne and I are very happy to be creating a line for Evans. Fashion is waking up to diversity and acknowledging the different needs of women of all shapes, colours and sizes. It is a very exciting opportunity for us to use our design skills, in order to create beautiful clothes for a market that has been largely neglected by the higher end of the industry. We are creating fantastic prints, great shapes and great knitwear, of course. We look forward to launching the first collection.’ Inacio Riberiro
