The "Eat Pray Love" juggernaut continues. There's the movie of course, and the many tours offering a similar experience to the one that Elizabeth Gilbert chronicles in her best selling book, a line of perfumes inspired by the popular book and a line of jewelry, journals and other small goods. Now fashion designer Sue Wong has announced the launch of "Eat Pray Love by Sue Wong," a ready-to-wear collection that will launch nationally in August 2010 as a special limited edition collection for fall 2010.
"Eat Pray Love by Sue Wong" will feature pieces influenced and inspired by the story's focus on India and Indonesia. The "eat" part of the book, centered on Italy doesn't appear to have been an influence. The line will feature clothes with rich colors and intricate embellishments. This line will be the first-ever separates collection created by Sue Wong.
"When I read Eat Pray Love, I immediately identified with the story, as many aspects of Elizabeth Gilbert's journey were synchronous with my own personal odyssey," said designer Sue Wong in a press release. "Because of the immediate connection I felt to the story, as well as its emphasis on the culture, philosophy, and, in particular, alluring mystique of the East, I was able to create a collection that was striking, exotic, and timeless, and organic to the journey in the book and forthcoming film."
The line will be available in fine department stores such as Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom's, Lord and Taylor and Dillard's, as well as on www.saks.com, www.bloomingdales.com and www.SueWong.com.
