In early 2021 it seemed like all everyone was talking about was the hit Netflix series, Bridgerton. But it wasn't just the storyline or the phenomenal acting that wow-ed fans; it was the show's fashion. From white linens, tight corsets, and pearls, the wardrobe was heavily inspired by the mid-eighteenth century. This Spring, Bloomingdales has collaborated with the Shonda Rimes period drama to create a Bridgerton inspired clothing line. Here's what the collection includes.
The pop-up shop will include various items from fashion, beauty, home, and even kids products. The Carousel will contain numerous different exclusive collaborations, such as a fashion capsule from the sustainable line, Hope for Flowers by Tracy Reese. This capsule will be filled with collared tops, floral patterns, ruffle detailing, and empire waist gowns. Expect to see elegant sailor pants, blouses, and even a spaghetti strap tank top. Of course, a ton of inspiration for the line came from the drama series' color palette and fashion choices. But Reese made sure to design these pieces with a twist of modernization. "What I think of with Bridgerton,” Reese said, “I think of romance and love and dreams really. Because it was sort of in that dream space when we were watching it on lockdown over Christmas in 2020, right? It offered hope and optimism. And those are two things that I'm always all about. [Those] are attributes that Hope for Flowers shares with the whole Bridgerton aesthetic.”
There will also be a Bridgerton x Malone Soulier's shoe collection and Bridgerton x Beekman 1802 soaps wrapped in mock-ups of Lady Whistledown's society pages. Finally, the department store's limited edition shopping experience will include Wedgwood x Sheila Bridges fine china, which are perfect for afternoon high tea.
Believe it or not, that's not all! Bloomingdales has also worked with brands like Markarian, Lord Jones, Selkie, Sleeper, Annette Ferdinandsen, and Cult Gaia to create even more Bridgerton-inspired products for fans to enjoy. The creator of the series said in a statement, "We knew from the start that the clothes and fashion in Bridgerton would be a major focal point for the series, and it has been so satisfying to see the fans embrace it and incorporate it into their own style,” Rhimes added, "We couldn’t be more excited to partner with The Carousel @ Bloomingdales for this special Bridgerton inspired pop-up where fans will have the opportunity to shop products and inclusive clothing inspired by the show and created by female designers and designers of color." The line will be available on March 3rd online and at the Bloomingdale store at the 59th St. flagship in New York City.
