Coming This Fall: The Limited Scandal Collection
Say what? It’s true. This fall, you’ll be able to get your hands on clothes inspired by and pretty much designed for Olivia Pope – the leading lady of ABC’s show Scandal, starring Kerry Washington. In fact, for this limited edition collection, the actress herself teamed up with the show’s costume designer Lyn Paolo to design the 42-piece offering to be available from The Limited.
This kind of fashion partnership (between a national retailer like The Limited, a TV show, and its dynamic duo of costume designer + leading lady) is actually the first of its kind. Of the creative collaboration, Washington commented, “The collection is a nod to our devoted fans, to fans of fashion and to women everywhere who are inspired to boldly pursue their passions and look good while doing it.” Paolo added, “The whole team took great care in creating a collection that reflects Olivia Pope’s unique style. We believe the collection tells a story of confidence and professional sophistication as well as maintaining a strong feminine point of view.”
The collection, available in late September 2014, will include a variety of tops, pants, jackets, and outerwear in the signature style of Olivia Pope (think tailored wide leg trousers, feminine, flowy blouses, and strong lines and trims) — beginning at $49.
