Last week we told you about Halle Berry‘s newest project: reviving French lingerie Scandale and bringing it stateside. Well, the wait to shop wasn’t long because the 10-piece collection hit Target.com today! From bras and boyshorts in stretch fabrics and easy-to-wear colors, it’s hard to believe prices start at just $7.
We had the chance to sit down with Halle last week to talk Scandale. She filled us in on her favorite item, what to expect from the line in the future and more. Check out what she had to say below and click the slideshow to shop the collection.
SHEfinds: What is your favorite item from the line?
Halle Berry: Well our capsule collection, I love everything in it. That’s why it’s our launch collection. What I love is that all the bras are really comfortable. They range in styles from leopard print which says “I’m here,” to our more subdued, our all-nude or all-black sparkly, or our black and white combo. They’re all things that I would personally wear, which is why it’s our capsule.
SF: What was your involvement in the design process and what was your favorite part?
HB: My favorite part was just being at the party and sitting down at the table with the designers, and saying, “Here’s what I’d like to see. Here’s what I’d like to have happen,” and, “Show me this,” or, “Show me that,” or I would bring in pictures of things. Or actual bras that I had had and loved over the years, and I love the sort of element on one bra, but then I love something else about another one, and I would say, “Let’s incorporate these two ideas in our own way to create our own bra.” And comfort was key, so I thought every bra has got to pass my Halle comfort test. That’s really important.
SF: Do you have any plans for future collections?
HB: Seasonally we’re going to always have new products, new colors and new inspired ideas so the whole collection stays current and always ever-changing. We’ll have some of our staples that will never go away, things that prove to be what the customers like the most. I just want to keep it fresh and keep changing, and evolving as the times change.
SF: How did you balance this with your acting career and also being a mom?
HB: Well you know, you make time for what’s important, and this was really important to me. And then understanding all the things that I learned and did. Where there’s a will there’s a way!
