A sneak sketch of the 42-piece collection shows a Pope-inspired cacoon coat. And, of course, a Pope coat isn’t complete without a belt.
Crisis manager Olivia Pope’s got 99 problems, but workwear isn’t one! This sketch shows a look we’ll be clamoring to get: Pope’s coveted mock-neck jacket with boot-cut trousers.
Thankfully we can check this Alexander McQueen admiral style jacket off of our wishlist.
“Bringing a quintessential neutral palette together with soft feminine color, the collection is outfit driven while remaining easy to mix and match – creating effortlessly modern and powerful looks,” explains The Limited head of design, says Elliot Staples. We’re hoping this power suit is one!
“We believe the collection tells a story of confidence and professional sophistication as well as maintaining a strong feminine point of view,” says ‘Scandal’ costume designer Lynn Paolo. Pope’s ombre Giorgio Armani jacket, matching wool-blend coat and charcoal trousers in this scene fits the bill perfectly.
Max Mara’s sharply cut collarless suit in this soft shade of mint strikes the balance of soft and hard Paolo was referring to. We see it as the perfect invevstment
“A collection that embodies the elegance and power of the Scandal aesthetic for real-life gladiators and everyday fashionistas,” is Kerry Washington’s focus for her first fashion collection. If this breathtaking Dior coat, Gaspar gloves and Prada bag is exactly the style she’s referring to we’ll take one of everything please!
“Our plaid round collar cape seamlessly translates television to reality and captures the true essence of the consistent sophistication and style that Olivia Pope represents for confident women everywhere,” says Staple. We’ll take that as a strong hint we’ll be able to shop something similar to this plaid Ralph Lauren style.
“Olivia Pope’s signature wardrobe is well represented by tailored wide leg trousers, separate jackets with strong lines & signature trims, chic feminine blouses, and heroic outerwear pieces,” dishes Staple. Heroic describes this Burberry coat precisely, add that to the shopping bag!
Another heroic Pope coat we’re coveting: Max Mara’s capelet coat.
Pope’s collection of “heroic” coats are endless and this Salvatore Ferragamo cream pearl cashmere style is the ultimate car coat our closet is calling for –– note to The Limited.
