Bridal and womenswear fashion label Vera Wang has announced an exclusive partnershipwith men’s speciality apparel retailer, Men’s Wearhouse to launch a new tuxedo rental collection.
The Black by Vera Wang collection, launching in late spring 2012, will initially offer two modern tuxedo styles, with one style in black and the second style in grey. The black tuxedo will feature a two-button notch, grosgrain lapel with side vents, and the flat-front pant will feature a grosgrain stripe detail. The grey style will include a two-button, satin edge notch lapel with side vents and a classic, flat-front pant.
The opening price point for the rental collection is $219.99 for a complete outfit, with both styles offered in standard fit, slim fit and ‘big & tall’ sizing.
"For more than twenty years, I have shared my design vision with women around the world, so it is exciting to now have the opportunity to share that with men as well," said Vera Wang. "With an exceptional reputation as one the largest men's specialty retailers, Men's Wearhouse was a natural retail partner for the Black by Vera Wang collection."
