This week, the most clever collaboration happened. For all the Gladiators out there, you should know that Kerry Washington, costume designer for “Scandal” Lyn Paolo, and Elliot Staples, Head Designer at The Limited, have collaborated to create a new line of Olivia Pope inspired designs for the everyday Gladiator.
The style of Olivia Pope has been the talk of the fashion world since season 1 of the popular show Scandal. Now with this collaboration with a national retailer, the designer/costumer who created the visions, and the star wearing the visions, many of the show’s fans will be able to have a piece or two in their wardrobe that give them the feel of a Gladiator.
Many of Olivia Pope’s classic outfits are replicated for this new line, which was available in stores this Tuesday. So if Olivia Pope is a fashion icon for you, get to the nearest Limited and get your power suit ready.
The oversized sweater with wide leg pants are pretty much a must. But if you must do a formal jacket, try the side zip checker jacket.
Don’t forget the wrap coat too. Ms. Pope has made the wrap coat a fall must. A classic and timeless look returns to show the femininity and style of a powerful woman. The soft colors only add to the powerful appeal.
So if you are a fan of the show and cannot wait for the season 4 premiere tonight, don’t forget to go and get your Gladiator gear soon at The Limited store near you.
