    Fledgling vintage shop owner Lily Allen recently unveiled the first sketches of an 18-piece, vintage line of dresses she's created under the line Lucy in Disguise for pre-fall.

    The pop singer has taken this latest step in the fashion and retail world, along with her sister, Sarah Owen, a year after the two opened the vintage shop Lucy in Disguise in London. Lucy in Disguise also serves as the fictional muse for the new collection, a woman Allen described to WWD as “a time-traveling fashionista who’s inviting you to explore her wardrobe ... It’s a great opportunity to play with the character."

    WWD reports that the line encompasses pieces like a Forties-inspired tea dress, a sequined maxi and a flapper-style cocktail number for evening. Retailing between $175-$630, the collection will be exclusive to Shopbop.com in the U.S., which is good news for residences stateside who are fans of the British Allen and her aesthetic.
