Gladiator Gear: Kerry Washington Teams Up With The Limited For Scandal Inspired Collection
When it comes to fixing scandals, Olivia Pope [Kerry Wasington] does it with such conviction, grace and … style. Washington’s wardrobe on ABC’s Scandal is chic, tailored and sophisticated, and now, you can achieve that same look. Yesssss!
Washington has partnered up with clothing retailer, The Limited to create a fall collection inspired by the hit ABC show. The new mom, the drama’s costume designer, Lyn Paolo and The Limited’s head of design, Elliot Staples, will join forces to develop a 42-piece collection set to launch this Fall.
“People who love the look of the show can now step into this world in a way that is affordable and accessible because not everybody can afford to have the clothes they see on the show,” Washington told WWD.
“We weren’t inspired by any designers in particular because they are all original pieces that are authentic to the character and the world of the show,” the actress added. “Personally, I have tons of favorite designers. I don’t gravitate toward any one designer because I think of fashion as the costume of the everyday woman. The Armani house was one of the first ones to dress me. Jason Wu is a dear friend of mine, as is Tory Burch. I am a big fan of Alexander Wang.”
The collection will include cool pants, jackets and tops, with prices ranging from $49 to $248. The line will be available in 250 mall-based stores and online in late September.
