SPOTTED: Stripes Worth Sipping

alice + olivia’s Stacey Bendet dresses Ecco Domani Pinot Grigio in her iconic stripes just in time for summer

If you’re summer-ing, you should be stripe-ing. Or at least that’s our motto. Few things are more classic and timeless for summer than stripes and Pinot Grigio, which is why we’re thrilled Stacey Bendet of alice + olivia thought to dress our bottle in her signature stripe for the 2018 Ecco Domani Pinot Grigio Designer Label.

This year’s limited edition Designer Label features the original black and white stripe from one of Stacey Bendet’s first-ever pants designs for a look that’s as simple and classic as it is bold and iconic, just like Ecco Domani’s Pinot Grigio. Whether your personal style reflects an edgy downtown aesthetic, complements a classic nautical moment or evokes the retro style of a mid-century swimsuit, Stacey Bendet and Ecco Domani agree stripes always make for a summer showstopper.

“Ecco Domani is known for its classic and bold taste, and alice + olivia has always had a stripe in its collections,” Stacey said. “As soon as we started working on this, the idea was to do a striped bottle.”

The design of the bottle, clad in simple yet iconic black stripes, absolutely begs for bright and joyful accent colors like Ecco Domani’s signature green or even eye-catching graphic prints or florals. “This summer, I’ll be pairing my limited edition Ecco Domani Pinot Grigio bottle with a striped tote and a striped dress,” said Stacey Bendet. For Stacey and for Ecco Domani, when it comes to stripes, more is definitely more.

For fellow stripe savants, alice + olivia is releasing a limited edition custom striped wine tote in celebration of this year’s design collaboration. The tote, styled by Stacey Bendet, can hold two bottles of wine and everything that a statement-making summer soiree calls for.
