Some cool news dropped last week! Cool plus size designer news… If you’re a plus size girl who loves contemporary pieces, but also cares about the sustainability of materials, then BAACAL from Cynthia Vincent is for you. Launching with its Fall/Winter collection, BAACAL is definitely going to be a brand to watch.
If the name sounds familiar, it is because Cynthia Vincent’s free-spirited style has landed store collaborations such as Target, Barneys, Neiman Marcus and more! And now, plus size women get their own taste of the Cynthia Vincent style, with BAACAL.
Created for the modern woman, BAACAL is the brand for the discerning plus size woman who can express her own sense of style, without compromise or succumbing to society’s rules.
“Effortless and understated but never basic.”
“I wanted to make a brand from my point of view; where I “fit” into fashion,” said founder, Cynthia Vincent. “I always found it challenging to find pieces that represented me and women like me, it was incredibly challenging to find investment pieces made of quality beyond a size 12. Knowing that the average American women is a size 14, I wanted to create a brand for women like me, the true majority.”
BAACAL wants their plus size beauties to present their best selves to the world, but without sacrificing style or fit. Cynthia Vincent draws from her own experience for this collection. After having difficulty finding the right pieces that expressed her sense of style and personality, BAACAL was born.
Basically, BAACAL’s motto is “Style Uncompromised.”
