American fashion brand The Limited has finally released the much-awaited clothing collection inspired from the smart formal and eveningwear looks donned by actress Kerry Washington’s on-screen avatar Olivia Pope in the political thriller television series Scandal.

Co-designed by the show’s costume designer Lyn Paolo, the apparel label’s head of design Elliot Staples and the Emmy-nominated actress herself, the range reflects the no-fuss sophisticated styles of the tele-drama’s protagonist.

Slated to go on sale from today onwards at nearly 250 Limited mall-based stores and on the retailer’s website, the mix-and-match Scandal-inspired line is based on hues of baby pink, sage green, greige and ivory.

The standouts are a plaid cape, a funnel neck tweed jacket, a pristine white trench coat, a narrow lapelled pinstripe jacket, a tulip skirt sheath dress, a neck tie blouse, a key-hole halter neck blouse and a draped open front cardigan.

The fall season range also features a drape neck shell top, an elbow sleeve sweater, an epaulet, a printed V-neck blouse along with some ruffle collared and front ruffled tops, pencil skirts, belted drape collar wrap coats, slim ankle pants as well as wide and flare leg trousers.

Kerry Washington describes the collection on The Limited’s website as-“Women often feel they have to choose between smart or sexy. The collection says you can be both of those things. You can be fabulous and fearless.”

Elliot Staples also echoes the sentiments by adding, “This is about turning fashion into a tool kit for taking over a room.”

“From the fabrics to buttons, to cuts, to closure- we made sure every detail was perfect for our gladiators,” says Lyn Paulo on thelimited.com.

Founded in 1963 in Columbus, Ohio, The Limited specializes in latest runway-inspired women’s ready-to-wear collections ranging from modern suits and business separates, to event dresses and casual sportswear. (PB)
