Beyonce's collaboration with Addidas is finally here, and IVY PARK only goes up to size XL!
Fans of the singer were rightfully angry to discover that she launched a line - including sending boxes to her famous friends - but didn't include any plus options or her plus friends. Writer Candice Marie Benbow pointed out on Twitter, "You can’t celebrate the inclusivity of your other projects, having plus-size dancers and background singers, but ignore us again when it comes to this. The exclusion is intentional".
Refinery29 shared what Chicago blogger LaToya T. Wright pointed out, “No orange boxes were shipped to any plus size star.” Going onto say, “While celebs unpacked boxes filled with the complete collection, it looks like plus size women will be limited to the accessory category, some of the outerwear pieces and one of the four different sneakers.” Wright also noted that in December 2019, Elle Magazine reported that Beyoncé was designing “IVY PARK with everyone in mind” and that the press release distinctly states that the collection champions “values of inclusivity, community and diversity.”
