SheFinds News: Be True to Your School
November 2, 2005
Remember the good olâ€™ days, when youâ€™d wake up, throw on a sweatshirt declaring the name of your beloved university, and high-tail it to class? Or how about those fall afternoons spent in the student section of the football stadium, cheering on your schoolâ€™s team until you grew hoarse while proudly, patriotically, wearing clothing with the schoolâ€™s name splashed across the chest? Thereâ€™s something so comforting and classic about wearing collegiate clothing â€“ and designers Chip and Pepper Foster are capitalizing on that nostalgia. Their company, Chip and Pepper, will debut in November its C&P University line, which will offer vintage-style t-shirts and jackets with various university names and mascots emblazoned on the front. Fifteen colleges will be represented in the November line, including New York University, Duke University, University of Arizona, University of Southern California and Stanford University. The line will be available at boutiques and department stores such as Nordstroms, Neiman Marcus, Barneyâ€™s of New York and Fred Segal in Los Angeles.
