Here’s some good news to end the week with, the next Kohl’s Designer collection will MILLY by Michelle Smith. Michelle Smith will be the sixth designer for the retailer’s DesigNation limited-edition collection. As part of the Kohl’s DesigNation concept featuring premier designer fashion based on international inspiration, the collection will draw creative influence from Smith’s recent trip to Capri, Italy. The capsule collection features women’s apparel and will be available exclusively at Kohl’s and Kohls.com beginning Spring 2015. For the last two seasons, MILLY has showed transparent garments at New York Fashion Week. Hopefully , everything at Kohl’s will not be as diaphanous. After all, most of the mass market of women buying fashion apparel like to wear Spanx or other foundation garments.
So what can we expect from MILLY at Kohl’s? Here’s a clue from the designer. Think Capri.
“The picturesque, ancient resort island of Capri influenced my DesigNation collaboration with Kohl’s,” said Michelle Smith. “Capri’s technicolor vistas, dynamic Mediterranean culture and signature Caprese style of effortlessly chic dressing (the Italians call it ‘sprezzatura’!) were the perfect inspiration for this collection. Every collection I design is a personal extension of myself and my experiences. As the MILLY by Michelle Smith collection defines luxurious, bold, feminine style, I’m thrilled to partner with Kohl’s to offer an exclusive taste of ‘La Dolce Vita’ to women across the country.”
I can’t wait to see this collection. I love MILLY and bought many items from her Banana Republic collection.
