eBay Partners With Designer Rachel Zoe to Culminate “Summer of Choice” and Send Shoppers Back to School in Style

New Limited Edition Backpacks Created Exclusively for eBay Offer
Designer Fashion at Great Value, and Americans Are Invited to Vote on
Their Favorite Print

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, eBay announced a partnership with renowned American designer,
editor and stylist Rachel Zoe to create limited edition backpacks.
Through eBay’s “Summer of Choice” campaign, Americans have been able to
vote on the things they want most, unlocking incredible deals on
fashion, tech and home essentials. Shoppers are now invited to take to
the polls again to weigh in on new “Americana” prints that Rachel Zoe
designed exclusively for eBay. The prints will be featured on a
selection of backpacks, the quintessential accessory for those headed
back to school or work, with all proceeds benefitting charity.

“We know that our shoppers want choice – including access to the newest
looks from today’s hottest designers,” said Hal Lawton, SVP of eBay
North America. “eBay is making it even easier for people to shop
incredible items from style icons like Rachel Zoe – delivering in-demand
merchandise at extraordinary value, directly to their fingertips.”

Back to School and Work in Style

The limited edition backpacks with Rachel Zoe prints will be sold
exclusively on eBay beginning September 9 at 8 a.m. PST, at a price
point of $45, with free shipping included. All proceeds from the sale
will benefit Save
the Children
, Rachel’s philanthropic organization of choice, through
the eBay
for Charity

“One of the best parts of my job is empowering people to make choices
that reflect their personal style. This is why I was so excited to
design two exclusive prints for eBay’s Summer of Choice campaign, which
gives shoppers the chance to vote for their favorite,” said Rachel Zoe,
Creative Director of Rachel Zoe Collection. “I am equally thrilled that
with this initiative we are able to give back to children in need—with
each backpack purchased, 100% of the proceeds will support Save the
Children, a cause that is very close to my heart.”
