Forever 21 to Launch New Contemporary Line, Love 21

Forever 21 reported on Twitter that a few weeks after the launch of Faith 21, their new plus size line (online and in select stores on Friday!!), the fast-fashion chain will be launching a new contemporary line called Love 21. "Love 21 will have the trends you find at F21 but with more focus on fabrication and trims, and a more sophisticated feel," read the tweets. What next, Hope 21? But seriously, you know I'm excited!

I am excited too!

I'm sure most people know it, but at the bottom of the bags it says John 3:16, which is God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, so that you shall not perish, but have everlasting life... and another verse says out of the three, faith, hope, and love, love is the most important. so i wouldn't be surprised if they have something else called Hope 21... perhaps a sort of charity based line??

Do you know how the sizing is going to work for it? plus size clothing can sometimes be misleading

Here's what I know about sizing for Faith 21, the plus size line:

"Faith 21 will offer tops, jeans, tanks, leggings and skirts in a junior plus size as well as XL, 1X and 2X."

Check on Friday for more info when the collection launches!

ahhh thanks bb!
maybe i should just go to the one closest to me and see how it all fits/looks

i dont know if i would consider myself a plus size since forever 21 does fit me..M and L but maybe the actual styles for faith 21 will fit curves better

we'll find out soon!

Ahh can't wait to see the line. I vowed myself to not shop at F21 anymore because I tend to buy something there and only wear it once because either I got sick of it or that it was on the verge of falling apart! I'm definitely looking forward to this supposedly higher quality line!

That is an interesting name since the accessories only store is called "With Love"... we have one at the Mall of America that I always end up buying too much at!

Can't wait to check it out! Maybe it will be geared for the 20's pushing 30's? I am early 30's and like to sneak a thing or two from F21 - usually I shopping with girls half my age! :-)

That's what I'm hoping, too. The only clue I have is that F21 is currently doing a Mother's Day sweepstakes where you can win your Mom a beauty makeover and a new wardrobe from Love 21...soooo, makes me think it's going to be a little more "mature," which would be great!!

As for "For Love 21," I believe they still have accessory stores by that name (as Janna says). No word on whether that will change. It's no longer a part of their website, that's all I know.
