Archie Comics have released the news that they have partnered with clothing company Torrid for the “first ever plus-size Betty & Veronica Collection” of clothes for fans.
The Betty and Veronica collection is available today online and in select stores. The Betty and Veronica collection with Torrid is based on best friends (and sometimes frenemies), Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge, the original Archie Comics characters.
Archie Comics is represented by King Features, a unit of Hearst who represent Popeye, Betty Boop, and Hägar the Horrible.
Jon Goldwater, Archie Comics CEO and Publisher says:
The team at Torrid has been a dream to work with and we are extremely excited to see where they go with their new collection. Archie Comics have been and always will be for everyone, and that applies to our merchandise as well. We can’t wait for fans to see how the Torrid team roll out their new line. Small details like a “Betty” embroidered collar or a “Veronica” lipstick printed trim gives retro-inspired silhouettes personality without being over the top. The eight-piece wear-now collection is designed for real women with real curves in mind.
Liz Muñoz, Torrid President, adds:
It’s so thrilling to be the first brand to offer a Betty and Veronica collection designed for women who wear sizes 10 to 30. The collection is the perfect mix of sweet, edgy, and friendship—our customers are going to love it!
