(NEW YORK) Catherine Malandrino is returning to her roots for Fall 2013 with a limited-edition, Parisian-inspired collection sold exclusively at Kohl’s. The 80-piece, bargain-buy lineup will offer a range of ultra-femme dresses, skirts, pants, blouses, sweaters, and outerwear—all priced under $130.
“From the lights and the architecture to the parks and the galleries, I found so much creative inspiration walking the streets of Paris,” said Malandrino. “My Kohl`s DesigNation collection showcases that experience with a perfect blend of romantic, elegant and Parisian style at an affordable price.”
Malandrino marks the third designer to take part in the retailer’s collaborative DesigNation series, which highlights monthlong designer collections based on global destinations. Narcisco Rodriguez kicked off the program, referencing Istanbul for Fall 2012; Derek Lam followed for Spring 2013 with a summery collection nodding to Rio de Janeiro. Francophiles and Malandrino devotees can expect the Fall 2013 collection to bow in 1,100 Kohl’s stores and on Kohls.com in September and October.
