I’ll confess that I don’t watch Revenge, but I know plenty of people who do; they all absolutely love it. And not just for all the backstabbing (sometimes literally) drama—there’s no denying that the ABC hit is one stylish show.
And guess what, fans? Pretty soon you’ll be able to dress like all your favorite plotters and schemers—officially! According to WWD, the show’s costume designer, three-time Emmy nominee Jill Ohanneson, is currently hard at work on an officially licensed Revenge clothing line. Jill’s Revenge capsule dress collection will draw its inspiration primarily from the looks she puts actresses Emily VanCamp and Madeleine Stowe in on the show; this means that we can expect lots of sexy, curve-hugging styles and bold, dramatic colors. Word on the street is that we might be able to look forward to lingerie, accessories, shoes, plus-size styles, and men’s wear sometime in the future. The dress collection is expected to drop in time for the 2013 holiday season.
Matchbook Co., the talent-based licensing and consulting firm working with Jill on getting the collection out there, also represents costume designers like Janie Bryant of Mad Men (who has already released several successful Banana Republic collections), Girls’ Jenn Rogien, and Mandi Line of Pretty Little Liars. Said Linda Kearns for the firm, “We know that women everywhere feel that the best revenge is a killer look.” Paging Taylor Swift!
