SAN FRANCISCO, September 21, 2016 –(BUSINESS WIRE)–PBteen, a member of the Williams-Sonoma, Inc. (NYSE:WSM) portfolio of brands, debuts its new exclusive collection with Amie Sikes and Jolie Sikes of Junk Gypsy, the sister duo from Texas, known for their free-spirited lifestyle and design philosophy. The Junk Gypsy for PBteen collection is infused with the Junk Gypsies’ Southern roots and takes inspiration from their business of transforming roadside finds into unique décor. Available for purchase on PBteen.com today, the adventurous collection of over forty pieces includes bedding, wall décor, decorative accessories, lighting, jewelry and handbags.
“We have enjoyed working closely with Amie and Jolie and are excited to unveil our third design collaboration, created for those who embrace the same ‘dream-big’ philosophy as the Junk Gypsies,” said Jennifer Kellor, executive vice president, PBteen and Pottery Barn Kids. “The new collection is a cozy take on wanderlust design, and we hope our customers will have fun incorporating the eclectic décor as part of their individual style.”
The Junk Gypsy for PBteen collection showcases two signature bedrooms, each with their own unique theme. Rustic Glam is luxurious yet simple with a neutral color palette of grey, white and tan that is amped up with luxe textures like faux-fur and suede. The free spirited inspiration comes to life through playful decorative accessories including a Winged Mirror, Saddle Up Table Lamp and Round-Up Horseshoe Jewelry Holder. Rustic and rich shades of faux-suede are highlighted in standout furniture pieces such as the show-stopping Saddle Chesterfield Loveseat and the Boot Vanity Stool. The holiday season is cleverly hinted throughout the bedding collection, which includes everything from a Velvet Bohemian Quilt to Sparkle Wings Pillow, all in winter white with silver accents.
The second, Sunrise Lodge, brings rich hues of the desert into the bedroom with bold southwestern patterns featured on bedding, wall art and decorative pillows. Unexpected details can be found throughout, including faux-fur on items such as the Wanderer Fur Throw and Wanderer Fur Sleeping Bag, and unique patterns on bedding, like the Cosmic Horses Flannel Sheet Set and Desert Sunset Reversible Duvet.
The Junk Gypsy for PBteen collection also features a selection of items that give back. With any purchase from the Wanderer Bag Collection, which includes the Wanderer Duffle, Wanderer Fringe Backpack and Wanderer Fringe Pouch, PBteen will donate 25% of sales to the Wild Horses of America Foundation , an organization that helps provide permanent homes for wild horses and burros that have been removed from public lands. Additionally, they work to reduce the number of horses and burros who are rounded-up from the range.
“Working with PBteen for the past few years has been one of the most exciting and creative adventures we’ve ever been a part of,” said Junk Gypsy Co-Founders Amie Sikes and Jolie Sikes. “We’ve dug deep with this collection and we hope it truly connects to the hearts and souls of kindred spirits across the globe. We hope girls are inspired to dream big and to be trailblazers! We’re beyond excited to be donating a portion of the Wanderer Bag Collection proceeds to the Wild Horses of America Foundation, a cause near and dear to our hearts.”
The exclusive Junk Gypsy for PBteen collection is available for purchase now on PBteen.com and in PBteen stores nationwide beginning October 21st with prices ranging from $19.50 – $1,299.
