Abercombie & Fitch (A&F) recently announced the launch of a limited-edition capsule collection in partnership with Harlem’s Fashion Row (HFR) designer, Nicole Benefield. HFR is an Influential Arts & Entertainment organization that creates a bridge between fashion brands and designers of color through marketing, media and collaborations. This collection reflects a compilation of those efforts in alliance with A&F’s brand and purpose.
Benefield, known for her signature color blocking and monochromatic styling, worked in tandem with A&F designers to create a 26-piece collection for both men and women, featuring tops, bottoms, knitwear and outerwear. The assortment includes various styles in elegant neutral tones, seasonal versatility and eye-catching statement pieces.
In addition to sparking bold creativity from both brands, the collection also “epitomized the innovation that emerges when fresh perspectives are embraced,” as explained by Harlem’s Fashion Row CEO and founder, Brandice Daniel. A&F Co. Chief Marketing Officer, Carey Collins Krug, also emphasized the significance of the collaboration that went into this project, sharing that the team up between HFR and A&F was “an incredible experience for everyone involved.”
The collection represents a bold reflection of both brands, providing customers with an elevated, every day style in inclusive sizing, available for limited-time online and in select stores.
