Popular children’s brand Dotty Dungarees are super excited to be collaborating with alice + olivia By Stacey Bendet on an exclusive capsule collection launching this Spring, April 28th, 2022, just in time for Mother’s Day! Following their super successful collaboration with Nicky Hilton Rothschild last year, Nicky’s friend Stacey Bendet, CEO and creative director of alice + olivia, reached out to British based Dotty Dungarees to design a ‘Mommy & Me’ collection and as alice + olivia is opening its first UK store in London this Spring, the timing could not be more serendipitous! 

Dotty Dungarees will feature hero prints from alice + olivia’s Spring 2022 collection on their classic overalls, shorts, dresses, and Peter Pan tops. This gorgeous collection features beautiful florals in A+O’s distinctive bold prints, as well as its iconic Stace Face print.

Each pair of dungarees, dresses and shorts can be complemented with a matching Peter Pan collar top with bespoke collar details. These little outfits are the perfect mini-me match to A+O’s core Spring collection. Not only will the collection be available Stateside via alice + olivia’s DTC, but will also be exclusively carried at Saks 5th Avenue.

In the true ethos of alice + olivia’s spirit of philanthropy and female empowerment, from launch through Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 8th), alice + olivia will be giving 10% of net proceeds from sales of the collection and collaboration to the non-profit empowerHER. empowerHER, founded in 2013 by Cara Belvin, has a very specific mission—to empower, support and connect girls and young women who have experienced the early loss of their mothers, with Mother’s Day being one of the most painful days of the year for these young women.

This collaborative collection launches April 28th  exclusively via Saks in store and online (http://www.saksfifthavenue.com), alice + olivia in store and online (www.aliceandolivia.com), and Dotty Dungarees (www.dottydungarees.us).

About empowerHER

empowerHER® was formed in 2013 by Boston native Cara Belvin after a recognized need in the community.  Cara formed empowerHER out of the gratitude she had for all the support her family received after her mother Kit died when she was just 9 years old.  empowerHER is a one-of-a-kind nonprofit with a very specific mission—to empower, support and connect girls and young women up through age 24 who have experienced the loss of their mothers.

empowerHER is a supportive and inclusive community that offers EVENTS for GIRLS and a one-on-one MENTOR PROGRAM.  Events remind girls they are not alone in their grief and mentorship provides year-round support from positive role models who can relate to the loss of their mothers.  What began in Boston in 2013, has now expanded internationally and all activities are provided at no charge to the family.
