The Scandal star has partnered with costume designer Lyn Paolo to collaborate on designs with The Limited’s head of design Elliot Staples, for a new line of Scandal themed apparel.
First reported by Variety, the exclusive clothing line will offer women the chance to sport Olivia Pope’s signature “Gladiator in a suit style.” Washington looks forward to giving “real-life gladiators and everyday fashionistas” a new line inspired by the show’s elegance and power:
“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. 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.”
The collection will include Scandal themed tops, pants, jackets and outerwear (as seen in the sketch below), with prices starting at $49. The line will hit shelves September 22, the same day the Shonda Rhimes’ drama returns to ABC for its fourth season.
