A Look Into The Limited's Scandal Collection
We all get excited about our favorite TV show premieres, but when that much-anticipated premiere coincides with a clothing collection inspired by said show? Let’s just say that’s the stuff of every TV-loving fashionista’s dream.
Of course we’re talking about ABC’s Scandal and the ultra luxe Olivia Pope-inspired collection launched by The Limited. The retailer joined forces with both Kerry Washington — who plays a feisty “crisis manager” for political D.C. bigwigs, including the president with whom she’s had an on-again, off-again steamy affair — and Scandal’s costume designer Lyn Paolo.
Together, they all came up with an accessible, 78-piece collection for the everyday woman. Prices range from $50 to $250 for items such as Pope-approved outerwear, stunning print blouses and skirts of all silhouettes.
“There is no reason why only the people who make a certain amount of money should have access to this feminine power in fashion, you know? This line is created so that everybody can find their own inner gladiator. That every woman can be powerful and sexy, brilliant and smart and gorgeous, fashion-forward. You know, it’s just there’s no limit to who you can be,” said Washington.
It should be noted that The Limited’s Scandal collection has broken new ground where Hollywood-inspired fashion is concerned, as it’s the first time a design collaboration has taken place between a national retailer, a top rated network TV show, the show’s costume designer and the woman playing the lead role of the series. This is also a first for Washington and Paolo.
The Limited Collection Inspired by Scandal launched on September 23 at The Limited stores nationwide and TheLimited.com.
