I must say that I LOVE the new trend of designers partnering with the mass retailers! Started by my personal favorite store Tar-jay (because a true fashionista says it with un accent francais!) and now that many more retailers and designers are jumping on board, it’s uber-exciting to be able to finally afford some of the designers that I absolutely adore!
Some of the collections coming out in the near future are from my fave Tar-jay. Kate Young has some of the most adorable “red carpet moments” coming out April 14th. Yours truly is eyeing the blue satin shorts and animal print peep-toe wedge booties!
Kohls is partnering with Derek Lam for his DesigNation collection celebrating the art and architecture of Rio. The prints and colors in this collection are absolutely gorgeous and instantly sweep you away to the bright sunlight of far off Brazil (even if the light I’m in right now is fluorescent). I’m thinking I’ll go score the bikini, the cute printed tank/blouse and the solid black jacket. His collection launched online TODAY and will be available in stores TOMORROW.
And not to be outdone, Georgina Chapman of Marchesa launched her Pearl Collection at JCPenney the beginning of March. With her usual decadent style done up for JCPenney budgets, prom season will just never be the same!
