Not to be outdone by the announcement of Target's and Neiman Marcus's upcoming collaboration extravaganza, eBay has announced that it too will partner with some very big names for Holiday 2012.
Seven designers — Billy Reid, Chris Benz, Fallon, Jonathan Adler, Ruffian, Steven Alan, and Tibi — have teamed with the cyber giant to create a limited edition collection, online November 12. The 40-piece collection — titled eBay Holiday Collective — will feature about five pieces from each designer and will include womenswear, menswear, jewelry, travel, electronic accessories, and home decor; all pieces will ship for free and are priced from $50 to $100.
"Thrilled to be collab'ing w @eBay_Fashion this holiday on a ltd edition, locally made collection. All my friends can attest I love Ebay!" Fallon's Dana Lorenz tweeted following the announcement, while Chris Benz responded "You & me, both, sister! Xx". In fact, it seems a love of eBay was somewhat of a prerequisite. All the participating designers were chosen because of "their genuine enthusiasm for eBay," the brand's general manager of fashion, Jeff Somers said, adding that "each [designer] brings originality and a distinct point of view, and embodies the entrepreneurial spirit of our marketplace."
