ABC's 'Scandal' Releasing Clothing Line In The Limited Stores This Fall
Kerry Washington, who plays Olivia Pope, helped co-create the apparel line inspired by ABC's political thriller.
ABC's 'Scandal' will be coming to malls this coming fall.
ABC Studios revealed a new partnership with The Limited stores which will sell an apparel line inspired by the political thriller.
'Scandal' star Kerry Washington and costume designer Lyn Paolo joined forces to collaborate on designs with Elliot Staples, Limited's head of design, which will represent the style of Olivia Pope (Washington's character).
"By creating a line inspired by the show, we are introducing a collection that embodies the elegance and power of the Scandal aesthetic for real-life gladiators and everyday fashionistas," Washington said in a press release.
Adding, "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."
For a range of tops, pants, jackets and further accessories, which will be hitting the shelves in September, prices begin as low as $49.
It's been really fun to have a voice at every stage of the production from picking buttons, choosing fabrics and weighing in on hair and makeup people," the 37 year-old actress told WWD.
"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," she said.
"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," Paolo said in a press release. "I am so excited and hopeful that our Gladiators are as excited about the collection as we are; it has been such tremendous fun and such an honor to design for the amazing characters that Shonda Rhimes has created and now to help make their style accessible to all."
The official launch date is expected to coincide with the premiere of the fourth season of 'Scandal,' which will be in late September.
