Iranian-English model Yasmin Le Bon will create a collection for high street store Wallis, which is to be called YLB. The YLB collection will consist of 25 to 30 pieces, inspired by Le Bon’s personal wardrobe.
The 44-year-old supermodel is joining the likes of Beth Ditto and Kate Moss in creating a line for The Arcadia group’s stores. The collection, which is expected to hit the stores in September, will also feature jewellery.  The line looks are set to be “timeless and simple with a decidedly vintage feel,” Elle magazine reports.
The model, who is married to Simon Le Bon, lead singer of Duran Duran, recently walked the ramp at Qasimi, and was previously the face of House of Fraser.
She is currently represented by Elite+ in New York City and Models 1 in London. As a model, Le Bon has represented Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Bergdorf Goodman, Biotherm, Bloomingdale’s, Bonwit Teller, Calvin Klein, Chanel, Christian Dior, Clairol, Escada, Filene’s, Frasercard and Gianfranco Ferré, among others.
Her daughter, Amber, is currently the face of River Island.
