As far as department-store-window designs go, we didn't think collaborations could get more exciting than Jay Z and Barneys for the holidays — that is until Saks Fifth Avenue announced its partnership with ABC's Scandal. Emmy-nominated (and Vanity Fair "Best Dressed") actress Kerry Washington's character, Olivia Pope, is unarguably one of the most fashion-oriented yet accessibly dressed characters on television, so it makes sense that Saks would pay tribute. The collaboration, which kicks off on October 2, will include still vague but thrilling in-store, online, and onscreen components, plus a window installation created by Scandal's Emmy-winning costume designer, which will feature Olivia Pope–approved designers Giorgio Armani, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, and Carolina Herrera.
