Launched in 2002, alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet is a sophisticated brand with a playful sensibility, which epitomizes the personality and style of its founder, Stacey Bendet. The brand was born from Stacey’s personal quest to create a flattering pair of pants, and has since grown into a full women’s ready to wear collection, including outerwear, dresses, and the perfect pants that started it all. In the spring of 2008, a children’s line was introduced which currently offers everything from sweaters to jumpers for little ladies. Stacey has also expanded into different categories with a Base Collection for the ultimate layering pieces to the Career Collection for a more modern working woman. In 2011, the alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet shoe line was launched and includes a wide variety of high-fashion yet affordable styles from leather knee-high boots to sparkly Mary Janes. Now a full lifestyle collection, the brand has become a Hollywood favorite with fans including Gwyneth Paltrow, Fergie, Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lopez, Blake Lively, and Taylor Swift.
