Consider Your Work Wardrobe Handled ~ The Scandal Clothing Line
by Kéla Walker
After seasons of trying to create looks for less inspired by Scandal, specifically Kerry Washington’s character Olivia Pope, Gladiators can suit up in official attire from the show with the The Limited Collection Inspired by Scandal. I got to work the NYC invite only event earlier this week and can share first hand that the collection is the personification of Olivia Pope.
Kontinue for the details on the The Limited Collection Inspired by Scandal
The anticipation for new Scandal has been building in more ways than one. Just earlier this week The Limited Collection Inspired by Scandal finally launched tonight a new season of the show kicks off. I’m so excited!!! I can’t wait to see where Olivia Pope AND what she is wearing. At the launch event both the Fall 2014 collection and the Holiday collection were on highlighted as models stood on display and showed off a line of sophisticated pieces colored in neutrals and soft pastels that read clean cut professional. There were capes, shawl coats, opera gloves and coordinates to help every gladiator suit up. There’s even a formal white dress in the vain of something Olivia wore to a White House dinner.
Kerry Washington was in attendance at the event along with her co designer Lyn Paolo, the costume designer for the Scandal and The Limited Creative Director Elliot Staples. There was a super sweet moment when Kerry took the time individually thanked all the models for standing on display (for 2 hours). This big deal about this collection is that it breaks new ground in Hollywood-inspired fashion. It’s the first-ever design collaboration between a national retailer, a top-rated TV network show, its costume designer and leading lady. It is also the first design collaboration for Kerry and Lyn who create the looks we love for Olivia Pope.
If you are looking to get in character for work or any professional endeavors considered it handled but this collection. Tops, pants, jackets and outerwear are included in the fall assortment, with prices beginning at $49.
Check out this video with Kerry and Lyn and Elliot talking about their inspiration and thoughts on the line.
