Prepare Your Purses: Here Are Three More Collections You’ll Want This Winter!
What do Rory Beca, Karl Lagerfeld, and Do-Ri Chung have in common? Their affordable new lines, of course!
If you’re seeking to spice up your cold weather wardrobe, here are the three collections you won’t want to miss! We never thought we’d be wishing for the winter, but we’re expecting to feel anything but the fashion blues. With collaborations from Karl Lagerfeld and Do-Ri Chung available early next year and Rory Beca’s collection already on store shelves, we’ll gladly brave the snow and sleet to revamp out closets.
Rory Beca for Forever 21:
Still searching for the perfect holiday frock or effortless blazer? Look no further than Rory Beca’s holiday collection for Forever 21. This 18-piece collection, Beca’s second for the chain, dropped in Forever 21 stores and online on October 21, 2011. Featuring heart prints, vibrant hues like red, blue, and purple, and of-the-moment cutout dresses and maxi skirts, we can’t help but covet these flirty pieces. Just don’t expect these pieces to be available forever: with prices ranging from $15.80 for tops to $27.80 for blazers and dresses, we expect they’ll soon have homes in gals’ closets.
Karl by Karl Lagerfeld:
Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld is 78–and shows no signs of slowing down! On the heels of his line for Macy’s, the fashion maven is hard at work developing “Karl”, the eponymous collection slated to hit Net-a-Porter on January 25, 2012 and on KarlLagerfeld.com on February 28, 2012.
The 100-piece line will largely feature denim, leather, and a bevy of hot accessories like fingerless gloves. Oh, and you can also expect the dawn of a new logo consisting of Lagerfeld’s side profile. With pieces priced from $95 to $450, Lagerfeld hopes to reach a wider, contemporary audience. But impossibly enough, that’s not all. This latest line will also be promoted heavily through pop-up shops, books, marketing tactics, and a totally redesigned website. And if you’re beau wants in on the fun, menswear drops in fall 2012, so get your credit cards ready!
Doo.Ri by Do-Ri Chung for Macy’s Impulse Collection:
Designer Do-Ri Chung is renowned for her goddess-like draped gowns and geometric designs. Even the First Lady, Michelle Obama, donned one of Chung’s dresses earlier this month. And now, you can find her creations gracing the racks of select Macy’s department stores and online for eight weeks beginning February 15, 2012.
The eponymous capsule collection, titled Doo.Ri, will be a part of Macy’s Impulse Collection. Gals can expect prints, leather, knitwear, jersey pieces, and delicate draping set in combinations of blue, grey, red, black, and orange. Trendsetters will be pleased to learn that there will be an abundance of of-the-moment pieces like maxi dresses, faux leather skirts and leggings, and statement trenches. And though the feminine, timeless pieces from this talented designer usually range in price from $795 for a blouse to $4,000 for evening attire, the Impulse line comes with much more wallet-friendly prices. Items in the collection are expected to start at $39 and peak at a still-reasonable $159.
We’re counting down the days until we can get our hands on Karl and Doo.Ri. As for Beca’s collection…well, we’re expecting a package (or five) on our doorsteps soon.
