Boy does Stacy Bendet do know how to throw a party! Yesterday I attended alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet x FriendsWithYou Launch Party at the Hollywood Athletic Club. There was a bounce house, lots of yummy drinks, claw machines, dancing clouds, celebrities and candies everywhere.. so pretty much every girl’s dream come true. Check out their new collection here Alice & Olivia x FriendsWithYou
The collaboration launches as part of alice + olivia’s Art Collective, a series of creative partnerships with renowned artists that began in 2013. The FriendsWithYou collaboration debuted in Los Angeles during an alice + olivia event that gathers the LA art scene in Hollywood, combining art, fashion, and fun.
alice + olivia’s Stacey Bendet was drawn to FriendsWithYou artists Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval’s joyous post-pop imagery and colorful style, and saw how their magical worlds would translate into whimsical, wearable art. The collection itself puts optimism at the forefront, with FriendsWithYou’s signature smiling cloud graphic drifting across knitwear, skirts, accessories and shoes. In the mix are alice + olivia’s saturated rainbows, with West Coast inspired silhouettes.
During the Art Collective event, alice + olivia will also launch its Kindness campaign T-shirt in partnership with Ditch the Label, the anti-bullying charity dedicated to promoting equality and providing support to young people who have been negatively affected by bullying and prejudice. alice + olivia created a black t-shirt with bold, white messaging: Kindness Is For Everyone. The shirt will be available in alice + olivia stores and online; a portion of the proceeds will go to Ditch the Label.
