Alice + Olivia Collaborates With Erickson Beamon And Keds
Fashion designer Stacey Bendet Eisner, founder of Alice + Olivia, clearly believes in teamwork. She has collaborated with Payless Shoesource for several seasons now, bringing her colorful and funky aesthetic to the affordable footwear retailer. And within the past month, she’s unveiled two new collaborations: a jewelry line designed by Erickson Beamon for Alice + Olivia, and a collection of shimmering sequined sneakers for Keds. Here’s a look at the two new collaborative efforts, which both remind us of why there’s a “+” symbol in the Alice + Olivia brand name — hey, 1 is the loneliest number, right?
ERICKSON BEAMON FOR ALICE + OLIVIA
Erickson Beamon for Alice + Olivia Rose and Safety Pin Necklace, $276.50. Available at Bloomingdale’s and Bloomingdales.com
Forget dainty pearls or faceted gemstones — the Erickson Beamon for Alice + Olivia collection fuses together a tattoo parlor-ready sense of rebellion with a rocker edge and a gladiator feel. Take, for example, the Chain Collar Necklace pictured below, which features strands of rhodium, brass, and silver-plated chain, as well as glass beads, black leather details, and looped, dangling mesh chain details, for a Mad Max meets Gladiator feel. Want a slightly less armor-like option? Check out the Leather Rose Bracelet, a silver-toned hinge cuff covered with leather rosettes, with draped chain details and black rhinestones circling the base of each rosette.
Erickson Beamon for Alice + Olivia Chain Collar Necklace, $196. Available at Bloomingdale’s and Bloomingdales.com
Alice + Olivia Leather Rose Cuff, $392. Available at Shopbop.com
ALICE + OLIVIA FOR KEDS
On May 1st, Alice + Olivia debuted its new collection of sneakers for Keds, available at Neiman Marcus stores. For the project, Bendet tweaked the classic silhouette of the Keds Champion style, removing the laces and eyelets to create a more feminine slip-on style and adding all-over sequins (even along the sneaker’s tongue). Available in colors like gold, silver, black and light pink, the Alice + Olivia for Keds kicks are an easy way to jazz up any ensemble — whether it’s a jaunty romper, some skinny jeans, or a casual, flouncy skirt.
Alice + Olivia for Keds sequined Champion sneakers, $88 each. Available at all Neiman Marcus locations.
