“Our guests have embraced the on-trend styles present in Future Collective, and we’re proud to introduce our third partner, Alani Noelle,” said Jill Sando, executive vp and chief merchandising officer of Goal. “Alani’s collection reflects her fresh and expressive tackle fashion and captures the spirit of summer with daring pieces that allow our guests to rejoice themselves. Through this partnership, we’ll proceed giving our guests what they most love about Goal: joyful and classy designs at an incredible value.”

Noelle told WWD that this was her first apparel and accessories collaboration so she wasn’t sure what to anticipate. “Working with Goal was really a real collaboration, and the whole process was a lot fun. I worked with a various group of girls who encouraged my ideas and made me feel comfortable and valued. I even have been a longtime lover of Goal and frequent Goal shopper so that is such a full-circle moment,” she said.

She said that although she doesn’t have her own apparel collection, she at all times uses fashion as a approach to express herself. “Creating a set rooted in self-expression has been a goal of mine and I couldn’t ask for a greater partner than Goal to bring this goal to life. It’s a dream come true to have been recognized and championed for my personal style, and to be given the chance to share that with so many individuals, especially those that appear to be me. I’m thrilled to be a part of the Goal family and partner with the Future Collective brand specifically, which to me is about inclusivity and accessible, quality style at an incredible value.”

In describing the aesthetic of the Future Collective collection, she said she found a number of inspiration in color specifically, in addition to ’70s fashion. She said the whole collection has “a lightweight and airy feel” that’s fresh, vibrant and straightforward to wear throughout this summer and all future summers to return. “The gathering may be very tropical and colourful, which jogs my memory of Puerto Rico. It’s vital to me to honor and rejoice my Puerto Rican heritage and recognize the varied perspectives inside the fashion industry. Coming from a modest but at all times vibrant upbringing, I need to give you the option to encourage other women like me to dream big, and Goal is the proper partner to try this with, knowing how much they prioritize inclusivity,” she said.

She said she’s been working with Goal on this project since early 2022.

Asked how she was chosen, Noelle said she has worked with Goal several times over time. She first worked with the corporate when she was a dancer featured in one in every of its commercials. More recently, she created social content for Goal. “Collaborating on an apparel and accessories collection was a natural and exciting progression of my relationship with Goal,” she said.

She said it was hard to decide on her favorite pieces, but when she needed to she’d say, they’re the sleeveless collared denim minidress, sleeveless crochet fringe maxidresses and the matching cutout blazer and relaxed trouser shorts.

Noelle said she had a number of say within the design, silhouettes and styles that they produced. “From conceptualizing designs to deciding on fabrics and silhouettes, the method was really exciting and truly hands-on. I felt extremely seen by the whole Goal team — they listened to and trusted me throughout the whole partnership, and vice versa. We learned loads from each other. Seeing the samples for the primary time was such a surreal experience, and I hope Goal guests are going to like styling these pieces this summer as much as I do — there is something for everybody,” she said.
