These days, designer collaborations with mass market brands are everywhere. Missoni for Target, Karl Lagerfeld for Macy’s, this week’s launch of Maison Martin Margiela for H&M…the list goes on. Amidst the craze of nabbing a designer label priced for the masses, however, it’s easy to overlook the inferior quality of the construction and fabrics, and sometimes odd sizing. Not so with the recent Narciso Rodriguez collection for Kohl’s . Not only are the designs seriously stylish and covetable, but the fabrics (particularly the ponte knit) are far more substantial and luxe than those we’ve come to expect from clothing at this price point.
The collection itself is sleek, with a heavy emphasis on strategic colorblocking designed to flatter the figure in a gorgeous on-trend way. Monochromatic blocks of black and gray mixed with rich jewel tones look fresh and modern. And the best part? Most of the pieces are under $50 and currently on sale.
The bottom line? This is one designer collaboration that shouldn’t be missed. Here are just a few of our favorite pieces worth adding to your shopping list:
