WWD reports that House of Deréon designer Beyoncé is set to launch a new junior line inspired by and named for her on-stage alter ego, Sasha Fierce. The collection is inspired by looks created by Thierry Mugler for the singer's world tour (previously discussed here) and according to Tina Knowles, Beyoncés mother and fellow House of Deréon designer, the line is "edgier and trendier and reflects Sasha Fierce's daring and outgoing attitude." The collection features many accessories (read: chains and studded shoes) and fairly simple silhouettes. Sasha Fierce for Deréon will be available in Macy's and Dillard's this fall.
