In a similar vien to the upcoming Target + Nieman Marcus collaboration, eBay recently announced they would be teaming up with seven designers for an exclusive holiday collection.

Called the eBay Holiday Collective, the line will feature 40 limited edition holiday gifts designed by Jonathan Adler, Steven Alan, Chris Benz, Fallon, Billy Reid, Ruffian and Tibi. According to WWD, the collection will span everything from jewelry and clothing to electronics accessories and home decor.

Jeff Somers, general manager of eBay fashion, released this statement on the collaboration in regards to the future of retail:

“The eBay Holiday Collective marks another milestone for eBay in the fashion category. Similar to the recently announced Neiman’s and Target and Nordstrom and Topshop collaborations, our partnerships are another sign of the retail revolution under way. As consumers seek seamless, multichannel, anytime-anywhere shopping, creative collaborations point to the future of commerce. Our focus is on enabling commerce, and we’re achieving that by serving as a partner to retailers of all sizes.”

The collection will launch online on November 12th with prices ranging between $50- $100.
