PLANO, Texas — J.C. Penney and award-winning actress and style icon Tracee Ellis Ross plan to unveil an exclusive, limited-edition collection just in time for the holidays. Available in all stores and at jcpenney.com beginning Nov. 12, Tracee Ellis Ross for J.C. Penney includes women’s apparel and accessories, as well as home décor items.
“We are thrilled to bring Tracee’s style to life with her first-ever retail collection,” said Jodie Johnson, SVP of women’s apparel, jewelry, footwear and handbags for J.C. Penney. “Known for her fresh, bold and confident looks, it’s no wonder that women seek to emulate Tracee’s style. Infused with her unique design aesthetic, the Tracee Ellis Ross for J.C. Penney capsule collection offers an affordable selection of stylish and gift-able items that gives customers another reason to shop us this holiday season.”
Ross, a Golden Globe award–winner and star of ABC’s “Black-ish,” has long been a lover of fashion, beginning with her early career working in the industry as a model and as a contributing fashion editor to Mirabella and New York magazines.
“It’s been my lifelong dream to design a line of clothing to utilize my love of style and clothes and to create a collection accessible to everyone that empowers women to embrace their joyful spirit. Each piece is timeless and versatile, classic but with flavor. They can be mixed and matched to create elegant looks for everybody and everybody. J.C. Penney was a wonderful partner for me as I designed this affordable collection because I truly believe that looking good does not have to cost a lot,” said Ellis Ross. “At the same time I thought why not expand the joy of getting dressed into a few beautiful home décor items? These pieces add a special touch when entertaining friends and loved ones this holiday season, giving some sparkle and joy.”
The collection includes an assortment of sparkly and colorful dresses, trousers, jackets, sleepwear, and athleisure pieces. Apparel items will be offered in sizes small to 3X, with prices ranging from $29 to $74. Prices for the selection of handbags, totes and scarves will range from $19 to $24, while sleepwear items will range from $17 to $34. Items for the home will include throw pillows, dessert dishes and high ball glasses, all ranging from $12 to $19.
As an exclusive benefit, J.C. Penney Rewards members will be the first to know when the pink and gold sequin dresses from the collection are available for purchase on jcpenney.com before the full collection launches. Beginning Nov. 12, all customers can find Tracee Ellis Ross for J.C. Penney prominently displayed in a dedicated shop in store and online at jcp.com/TraceeEllisRoss.
