As part of the Kohl’s DesigNation concept featuring premier designer fashions based on international inspiration, the collection will draw creative influence from Malandrino’s recent trip to her home city of Paris, France. The collection features apparel for her and will be available exclusively at Kohl’s and Kohls.com beginning fall 2013.
“Our DesigNation collection from Catherine Malandrino blends Catherine’s feminine style and recognizable silhouette into wearable, timeless designs that allow women to express their personality at an exceptional value,” said Don Brennan, Kohl’s chief merchandising officer. “We are confident the line will appeal to our customers and continue to position Kohl’s as the premier style destination they have come to expect.”
Malandrino’s DesigNation collection will include dresses, skirts, pants, shirts, sweaters and outerwear.
“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.”
Launched in fall 2012 with Narciso Rodriguez and following with Derek Lam for spring 2013, Kohl’s DesigNation collections feature a different designer, marrying his or her aesthetic with influence from various global destinations. Kohl’s will continue to introduce new brands and exclusive world-class partnerships that offer customers contemporary style at an incredible value.
About Catherine Malandrino
Malandrino was born in Grenoble, France and is known for weaving together the two poles of her style, the energy of Manhattan and the romance of Paris. She began her career as a fashion designer in Paris, working in the houses of Emanuel Ungaro, Louis Feraud, and at Et Vous.
She moved to New York and expressed her own aesthetic by marrying her skill of draping with unique craftsmanship. “Curiosity is the essence of my work and inspiration is anytime, anything and anywhere. I want to use all the new technology that the world has to offer us today to express the elegance and sensibility of women of our time,” declared Catherine.
Based in Menomonee Falls, Wis., Kohl’s is a family-focused, value-oriented specialty department store offering moderately priced, exclusive and national brand apparel, shoes, accessories, beauty and home products in an exciting shopping environment.
