Amy Schumer has her debut as a fashion designer, releasing a more inclusive women’s and children’s line of comfortable separates called “Le Cloud” at Saks Off the Fifth, in collaboration with her costume designer pal, Leesa Evans.

On Dec. 13, the duo’s much buzzed-about the first line dropped from Saks Fifth Avenue’s discount outlet. With neutral-toned tops, bottoms, jackets, coats, accessories and more, items of the 23-piece collection are available in sizes from XS-XXL (0-20) in an attempt to “empower women of all economic backgrounds, to make use of clothing to their confidence and their success,” according to a press release

Items from the Le Cloud line range from $38-$248, according to the official website.

“In the design of Le Cloud we approached each style with the goal of creating forms that women feel good about themselves, so that their unique personalities can shine through,” Evans said in the memo. “When you have these silhouettes, they become your daily uniform. It is both an emotional and positive connection with the clothes that we try to make it through our brand.”

According to Today, when Schumer was out and about on the press tour for her recent flick “I Feel Free,” she would lament to Evans that the market lacked off-the-rack clothing staples that really looked and felt good; the outspoken 37-year-old star was on the hunt for clothing that truly felt “light as a cloud.”

“(Amy) would always say to me: “Now, this does feel like a cloud?’ And I would laugh and I would say, ‘No, it doesn’t feel like a cloud, not everything feels like a cloud,'” Evans told the outlet. “And she was like, ‘what if?'”

The women together and say they could not be more proud of the Le Cloud line today.

“Leesa has changed the way I viewed dress up,” Schumer, a vocal advocate for body positivity, said, as per Entertainment Tonight. “It helped me to my full potential. To get to pass that on to any woman is my dream.”

Better yet, 30 percent of the proceeds of all Le Cloud sales will be donated to charities in combination with STYLEFUND, a campaign created by Schumer and Evans promote confidence through fashion.

Schumer – who recently declared the ever-glamorous Meghan Markle is her “pregnant nemesis” – announced in October that she was expecting her first child with her husband, Chris Fischer.
