Another email, this one part of an exchange about Clements Ribeiros forthcoming line for UK plus-size retailer Evans, flagged up the fact that Adele wore a dress from the line at a recent Canadian gig (inset).
We couldnt find any agency photos from Canadian shows, but her Vancouver gig on August 9 fell after news broke about the Clements Ribeiro for Evans tie-up. Meanwhile, the line itself wont be available until S/S 12.
So Adele is wearing an actual dress from a line that no one has seen any images, samples, print swatches or even CAD drawings of, several months ahead of said lines release.
Do we sense an impending announcement that Adele is the face of Clements Ribeiro for Evans?
And wouldnt that be something?
