Catherine Malandrino debuts Parisian-inspired collection for Kohl’s
By Brittany Anas
In two words, Catherine Malandrino’s collection for Kohl’s is “tres chic!”
Malandrino drew inspiration from Paris to design a limited-edition capsule collection for Kohl’s. The end result? Classic and feminine black and white palettes — with a jolt of teal and burgundy here and there that draws inspiration from the Eiffel Tower to the well-dressed Parisian women.
Kohl’s tapped Malandrino to be the third designer for “DesigNation,” which challenges designers to use international locations as their muses. Malandrino was born in Grenoble, France and got her start as a fashion designer in Paris. She latered moved to New York City — melding Manhattan style with the romance of Paris.
“We are thrilled to partner with Catherine Malandrino for this exclusive DesigNation collection. Malandrino has brilliantly captured the charm and sentiment of Paris through her diverse collection of wearable, timeless designs,” says Don Brennan, Kohl’s chief merchandising officer, in a news release.
The pieces in the collection range from $36 to $130 — though the collection is on sale for a limited time. Plus, get 3.5 percent Cash Back at Kohl’s when you buy through ShopAtHome.com.
Prior to Malandrino, designer Derek Lam launched a Brazil-inspired spring 2013 collection. Narcisco Rodriguez kicked off the series.
Following Malandrino, Kohl’s fourth DesigNation collection will feature Peter Som, whose collection will be inspired by his trip to St. Barths.
Here are a few of our favorite pieces from the collaboration between Kohl’s and Malandrino.
