Alice + Olivia is reuniting with a past collaborator, illustrator Donald Robertson, for a second capsule collection of ready-to-wear and accessories. This time, they are all about the lips and leopard prints. Beginning Wednesday, the collection will be available at Alice + Olivia stores, in addition to aliceandolivia.com and select retailers.
“The first collaboration I ever did with Donald was one of my favorites ever because we both built off of each other’s creativity and had so much fun working together,” founder and designer Stacey Bendet said to WWD. She previously collaborated with Robertson on a capsule collection in November 2015.
Bendet went on to add that, "When I was working on my new summer collection I kept saying, ‘These colors are so Donald,’ so I asked him to create a Stace print that could go back to the colors of my summer collection. He reminded me of one that he had already created, and we turned it into a blouse. I was working in between summer and pre-fall on animal prints, so he developed these leopard lips that I decide to pair back to all these crazy fun colors. What was supposed to be one button-down shirt turned into a whole capsule collection.”
Price points for the collection range from 225 dollars to 1295 dollars. The collaboration includes bombers, t-shirts, cardigans, ball gown skirts, clutches, sneakers, wrap dresses and blouses.
