eBay, the world’s largest online marketplace and a leading destination for fashion, in partnership with designers Billy Reid, Chris Benz, Fallon, Jonathan Adler, Ruffian, Steven Alan and Tibi, announce the eBay Holiday Collective - an original, limited-edition gift collection of men’s and women’s apparel, jewelry, travel and electronics accessories and home décor. Available on eBay for the 2012 holiday season, the Collective marks the first time eBay is collaborating with a group of leading designers to create an exclusive collection.
Each member of the Collective has designed a unique capsule collection to deliver, together, a singular suite of 40+ inspired gift items. From the trendy traveler and luxurious lounger to the holiday hostess and the gadget guru, the bespoke collection features gifts for everyone on your holiday shopping list. Starting November 12, the collection will be available globally, exclusively on eBay, at accessible, “Buy it Now” prices from $50 to $100 and will include free U.S. and international shipping.
“By bringing together seven diverse, tremendously talented designers, we’re able to meet the needs and wants of our eclectic, global community with a curated assortment of gifts this holiday season,” said Jeff Somers, GM of Fashion, eBay. “Our partners were chosen based on their genuine enthusiasm for eBay and because each brings originality and a distinct point of view, and embodies the entrepreneurial spirit of our marketplace.”
Designers from the eBay Holiday Collective will also deliver holiday shopping inspiration this season by curating shop-able wish lists and gift lists featuring their favorite finds from the global marketplace. The interactive gift guides, accessible online and on-the-go through eBay’s mobile app, will enable shoppers to discover new and one-of-a-kind items (to gift and get!) through the lens of Collective members.The eBay Holiday Collective represents eBay’s commitment to giving its community of more than 100 million access to shop the world for an unparalleled selection of new, branded and designer merchandise at great value, and delivering designers, brands and retailers an innovative platform to market to a broad, global audience.
