Here’s Everything We Know About Ciara & Russell Wilson’s New Fashion Brand

LITA by Ciara is proving that love is the answer, one outfit at a time.

Ciara

Ciara has built a life that many of us admire and envy at the same time. She is a loving wife, mother, and friend with a hugely popping career. She balances all of the above so gracefully, managing to insert 'super' in front of all of her labels. Over time, both her and husband, Russell Wilson, have built an impressive portfolio, from venture funds, to insurance, to charity and more, and now, they are adding 'fashion designer' to the resume, as the duo welcomes LITA by Ciara.


It's founded by Ciara, husbae Russell Wilson, and former Lululemon CEO, Christine Day.

Announced in December of 2020, Ciara decided that she wanted to make LITA, a luxury fashion brand that has a mission beyond just selling t-shirts.

"We're not only doing the fashion part. We're also combining the passion for fashion but also the passion for impact. That was really important to both Russell and I and also Christine in creating our company. There has to be more to it than fashion."

LITA shares space under the umbrella of the House of LR&C, with Good Man Brand, which Wilson founded in 2016, Human Nation, a gender neutral apparel influencer vibe, and Dare To Roam (DTR), a line of chic minimalist backpacks and accessories crafted from antimicrobial nylon. They decided to merge fashion and philanthropy with their launch of the parent company, but now LITA, is speaking strictly to the ladies and most importantly, falling in line with the other brands who's looking to appeal to younger shoppers who are socially minded.

Three percent of each purchase goes to the 'Why Not You Foundation,' which Wilson founded in 2014.

Before any money touches Ciara, Christine, or Russell's pockets, three percent of sales are donated to the foundation, which supports organizations that provide kids with educational resources and raise money to cure and treat pediatric cancer. Ciara opens up to ELLE about the process, saying:

"It's more than an opportunity to create cool fashion designs and to keep my ladies fly and fashionable around the world. There's also this great opportunity to make a difference together, hence we give back 3 percent of what we make. We're a give back first company."

She continues:

"Having the opportunity and platform to do all of that good is a big part of the 'why we do this.'"

The collection is priced between $68-$895.

Ciara is looking out for our purses, ladies! She kept the prices extremely affordable for the everyday woman, something she says was a focus of hers.

"My ultimate goal for LITA is to be a woman's best friend in fashion. I'm a high-low kind of girl, and so I've been able to pour some of that influence into the line. I'm also a tomboy, so there's going to be a little bit of edge and attitude in all the pieces. LITA is for the woman who wants to be fly but doesn't have to spend a crazy amount of money."

At the end of the day, Ciara wants us to know, that LITA is all about love, first.

Each garment is carefully crafted throughout the collection, down to the materials used. And according to Ciara, sustainability is one of the greatest acts of love consumers can practice right now, which is why LITA uses conscious materials that will last.

"At the house, you don't have to sacrifice fashion to be sustainable. We're thinking about durability. Factoring sustainability into every part of the process and putting love into every part of the process was really important. And being able to have an environmental impact at the same time. It all comes back to love."

We're proud of you, Ci!

LITA by Ciara is officially live and available for purchase on their website.

I’m sure a high percentage of people who chose to click this article either are fixers, former fixers, or maybe they want to understand why fixers feel the need to make it their responsibility to change everyone. Well, for one, barely anyone who fits the bill knows why they do what they do until it exhausts them—like myself. I have been a fixer for as long as I can remember. I’ve always loved fighting for the underdog. Something about being needed for the betterment of people’s lives has always felt very fulfilling to me. That is until I’d invested so much in many close relationships that it backfired on me. And like many fixers, I would question how I could have offered so much, yet people treated me anyhow in the end?

When I first heard about Harlem, the new Amazon series about four Black girlfriends in the city, I admit, I wasn't a fan. There, I said it. I'm a child of the golden era of Girlfriends, Living Single, Friends, Moesha, Sex and the City, and The L Word. My friends and I were real-life offspring of these constructs who had a lot in common with the women of those shows. Even after enjoying a season of the similar new Showtime series Run the World, I'd had enough of stories about friends "navigating their way through" their 20s, or 30s, or 40s. I loved these shows, but thought to myself, "Why do we need a Harlem? Can't we tell other stories?"

As someone who has always considered themselves beautiful at any size, I can't say that I have always loved my body. Sure, there have been moments where I thought I was the sexiest thing walking. But for the most part, all I saw when I looked in the mirror were flaws. My thighs were always too big. Butt full of dimples from cellulite. Boobs always in the way. And my arms too jiggly.
