“Staples and Teen Vogue are setting the style standard this back-to-school season so that every fashion-loving student can succeed in the classroom and keep up with the hottest trends,” said Scott Young, senior vice president, product and business development, Staples. “Students love school supplies that reflect their individual style, and we are excited to bring this trendsetting collection to our customers.”

The Staples brand product team and Teen Vogue editors worked together to create an exclusive collection of back-to-school supplies inspired by runway trends for 2014. The result is an authentic, fashionable, and functional collection perfect for any scene-stealing teen.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Staples on an exclusive assortment of back-to-school supplies for millennial shoppers,” said Amy Astley, Editor in Chief, Teen Vogue. “Our editors took inspiration from looks straight off the runway to create patterns and designs, so trendsetting students can now pair function with fashion both inside and outside the classroom.”

The Teen Vogue collection, exclusively at Staples, includes a wide assortment of products in four distinct style families.

  • Electric Jungle
    • Oversized animal prints in explosive colors are the theme in Electric Jungle patterns. Reinterpreted cheetah and giraffe prints mixed with metallics will make a bright splash in lockers.
  • Punk Prodigy
    • Punk Prodigy patterns showcase the attitude and rebellion of a fashion revolution. With graphic plaids, skull patterns, and medallions, the Punk Prodigy trend will make a statement in classrooms.
  • Rive Gauche
