Lala Anthony has successfully expanded her empire to include a reality television show and her Motives makeup line. Her latest venture is a clothing line called “5th & Mercer,” which she designed alongside her stylist, Jason Bolden.

The only piece currently available from the collection is a $330 jumpsuit, being sold exclusively on Shopbop as a part of their ONE by collection. The jumpsuit boasts wide legs, a plunging neckline and trendy pleats and cap sleeves.

In support, Kelly Rowland, Gabrielle Union and Tamar Braxton have all been photographed in the jumpsuit. Gabrielle Union rocked hers with bold blue earrings, Kelly Rowland kept things simple with a pair of pointy pumps and her TW Steel watch and Tamar Braxton accessorized with a gold Hermes belt, gold jewelry and red lipstick.

While jumpsuits are difficult to pull off at times, Lala’s first design comes off sophisticated, flattering and elegant.

What do you think of Lala’s 5th & Mercer jumpsuit, Clutchettes? Would you wear it?

    no im not feeling it! i hate all cute jumpsuites because they usually aren’t long enough for me! ok, i’m just being salty lol. it is in fact, cute. i love how its not bunched up with an elastic band at the waist like most jumpsuits i’ve seen.

    i think it’s nice, though i hate polyester. i really do. i don’t really buy stuff with polyester, esp. if i costs a lot.

    also, i think the white would be better with lining on the bottom; i don’t like that the pockets show through.

    i’ve been looking for a nice jumpsuit. tibi had a silk one but i missed that sale. bummers.

    Yeah, I like a structured/flowing Jumpsuit anytime, however being that I am a cheapskate, $330 for one get up uuuhhhmmm NO, she would have to gift it to me free, (the navy in a US size12 please) or they start carrying it at my local thrift shop then i can definitely grab them in all the colors available :).

    It’s cute. I think Tamar wears it best of the three ladies above. But is it really polyester? If so, $330 is way too much money.

      it’s a viscose and polyester blend.

      a lot of mid to upscale designers are actually using polyester more and more. i think it’s awful. they are charging high prices for polyester. in some cases, higher than natural fabrics like silk.

      bcbg (whose clothes i don’t like much actually) charges upwards of $300 for 100% polyester dresses.
