NEW VINTAGE: Brit singer Lily Allen and her sister, Sarah Owen, made their retail debut last year, when the duo launched their Lucy in Disguise vintage store in London’s Covent Garden. Now the sisters are expanding into ready-to-wear with an 18-piece collection of vintage-inspired designs for pre-fall. The collection, Allen said during a preview Tuesday, is inspired by the idea of the fictional Lucy, “a time-traveling fashionista who’s inviting you to explore her wardrobe.…It’s a great opportunity to play with the character,” she said.

The collection revolves around dresses, including Fortnums, a Forties-style rayon crepe tea dress with a lily of the valley print that the sisters commissioned; Chatsworth, a lawn green high-waisted maxidress embroidered with matte gold sequins, and Capone, a black sequined and beaded tulle flapper-esque dress. Retail prices will range from $175 to $630. The collection will launch exclusively in the U.K. at Harvey Nichols, and at in the U.S., Le Bon Marché in France, Freeshop in Japan and David Jones in Australia. The collection will also be sold at the Lucy in Disguise London store and via from June.
