While you may not have read Fifty Shades of Grey, I’m almost certain that you are aware of the book due to its almost instant popularity. It has been said to be the novel of the summer, and with such a sultry story line, how couldn’t it be? Seeing the success that the book has had, just imagine how marketable a lingerie line named after it would be. There’s no need to let your mind run rapid with the infinite possibilities because we’re about to find out.
Three separate apparel companies are about to get very rich after inking a licensing deal with E.L James to sell the first-ever official Fifty Shades branded apparel line: A company called HYP will be selling hosiery, garters, and tights; FREEZE Clothing will be selling the knits, tees, and hoodies and Briefly Stated will sell daywear, loungewear, sleepwear and (obvi) underwear. (Fashionista.com) No word yet on when the Fifty Shades apparel will be released. Fans should start a Fifty Shades saving fund because it’s almost a given that the apparel will go just as fast, if not as fast as the books did.
