Along with the addictive soapy drama and the catchy AF original songs, one of the absolute best parts of “Empire” is all the outrageously glam fashion. From Hakeem’s urban opulence to Cookie’s plush furs and head-to-toe cheetah print ensembles, each character is always dressed to kill (sometimes literally… lookin’ at you, Lucious).

Now, a new clothing line inspired by “Empire” is giving fans the chance to fill their closets with fashion inspired by characters from the show. Saks Fifth Avenue has teamed up with the Fox series to bring a new collection to stores and online in September, just in time for the show’s second season.

The collection will reportedly include fine jewelry, women’s clothing, men’s and women’s footwear, and handbags and accessories worn on the show.

Newly engaged “Empire” actor Trai Byers (who plays Andre Lyon) covers the retailer’s fall magazine, offering a little preview of the suave-looking collection.


Inside the catalog, each main character has an inspiration board of sorts, showing different pieces and fragrances that match their style and capture their personas. Naturally, Cookie’s includes cheetah print.


In a statement via The Wrap, Jeffrey Godsick, president of Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products, said, “The influence ‘Empire’ has had on so many aspects of popular culture proves it has the ingredients to become a stand-alone fashion brand.”

To prep fans for the big launch, Saks is offering men’s made-to-measure suiting events in September and October, and the retailer’s flagship stores in New York and Beverly Hills will feature “Empire”-curated windows.

But even if you don’t plan on drip-dropping some money to buy “Empire”-inspired clothing, you can still get your Cookie fix when the show returns for its second season on Sept. 23.
