If you’re a trendy shopper like us, (and we know you are!) you’re always trying to find designer goods for less than an arm and a leg within your price range. Whether it’s the perfect accessory to complete a look or a gift for a fashionable friend, a designer label takes almost any item from sweet to chic. This holiday season, our haute hopes are answered by eBay’s debut of limited edition designer gifts—all featuring price tags marked $100 or less. And just wait until you hear who’s on board!
Billy Reid, Chris Benz, Fallon, Jonathan Adler, Ruffian, Steven Alan, and Tibi have all designed mini-collections of covetable merchandise including men’s and women’s apparel, jewelry, travel and electronic accessories, and home décor. The budget-friendly gifts are as diverse as the designers so this capsule may just be your one-stop holiday shop. Most of the designers have well-established relationships with eBay. Like Jonathan Adler told WWD, “I’ve squandered ‘squillions’ on eBay over the years. Furniture, furniture, and more furniture. I’m glad to make something back now.” And we’re happy to take advantage of the opportunity!
The designers’ 40 exclusive items debuted last week, here’s a glimpse of what to expect. Jonathan Adler’s contemporary home goods in the form of picture frames, ornaments, and salt and pepper shakers. Tibi’s casual chic style in lace-detailed sweatshirts and a faux leather tee shirt lined with jersey—which designer Amy Smilovic points out aren’t “just boiled down from my collection.” Chris Benz “travel essentials” includes silk twill pj’s, cashmere tees and scarves, and cute canvas clutches. Tech-savvy accessories like iPad and iPhone cases from Steven Alan also join the mix, alongside travel bags by Billy Reid and glittery baubles by Fallon. We also hear the designers will be curating gift guides composed of their favorite eBay finds.
On the heels of Target’s ultimate collaboration news and joining past eBay exclusives with designers like Derek Lam, Narciso Rodriguez, Alexander Wang, and Rebecca Minkoff, this multi-designer collective is a first for the e-commerce marketplace. Get your shopping fingers ready—the goods go live November 12th and we’re sure you’ll be clicking fast to keep up!
