Medela teams up with Rebecca Minkoff on exclusive collection for ShopMedela.Us
McHenry, IL, September 30, 2021 – Medela, the most trusted breast pump brand in North America*, today announced a collaboration with Rebecca Minkoff introducing a limited-edition product collection curated by the fashion designer and breastfeeding advocate.
“As a mom of three, I know breastfeeding is a commitment, but it’s also one of the best things I could give my babies. Having what I needed when I needed them helped me keep going,” said Rebecca Minkoff. “My collection with Medela features the Medela Pump and Baby Bag introduced last year and some must-have Medela items that made a difference to me as a pumping and nursing mom.”
Building on the multi-year partnership between the two brands, the collection features Rebecca’s must-have Medela items and the Medela Pump and Baby Bag designed by Rebecca and first introduced at NY Fashion Week 2020, which is available in limited supply.
- Rebecca Minkoff's Must-Have Mom Collection features the Rebecca Minkoff Tote designed for Medela and the mom-favorite Freestyle Flex TM breast pump. This is available in limited quantities and will only be available while supplies last.
- Breastfeeding Essentials by Rebecca Minkoff includes everything a new mom needs, hand-picked by Rebecca. The bundle features the award-winning Pump In Style with Max FlowTM, Easy Expression® Hands-Free Bra, Medela Baby Day & Night Pacifier Set (2) with Pacifier Clip, Quick Clean TM Micro-Steam Bags (5-ct), Breast Milk Storage Bags (100-ct),
Purelan TM Lanolin, and Safe & Dry TM Bra Pads (120-ct).
“At Medela, we’re focused on making sure moms have the support they need to meet their personal breastfeeding goals,” explains Nancy Heaton, vice president of marketing and e-commerce for Medela Americas. “Rebecca has done so much to advocate for breastfeeding from encouraging moms to normalizing the discussion, she was a natural partner for us to introduce this limited collection within the Medela Family TM experience, and we look forward to introducing other collections curated by other influential moms in the future.”
