Lauryn Hill is entering the fashion business by fronting her first clothing line in collaboration with Woolrich.

The singer has teamed up with the Pennsylvania-based company for the American Soul Since 1830 collection, which is expected to arrive in Woolrich locations later in 2018, reports Billboard.

Hill worked side-by-side with famed Rihanna stylist Mel Ottenberg for the exclusive 2018 autumn/winter capsule. “These pieces have been part of the American vocabulary for over a hundred years, and they are definitely part of my soul as a stylist, and Lauryn’s identity,” Ottenberg tells British Vogue.

For the jackets from the outerwear collection, Hill designed sui generis pieces celebrating 20 years since her Grammy-winning The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill album and featuring collages of Hill and the album cover.

The ex-Fugees member appears in the campaign’s trailer, which shows her heading to the Harlem theater where she shot the Doo Wop (That Thing) video back in 1998. An acoustic Ex-Factor also plays as she traverses NYC’s Washington Heights.
