As "the most photographed French woman in America", Catherine Malandrino also designs much-photographed clothing that has appeared on Madonna, Halle Berry, Sarah Jessica Parker, Mary J. Blige & on and on. Her collection of jagged flag dresses in particular, giving the Stars & Stripes an "Easy Rider" edge helped put her on the map where she has remained - thanks to her chic threads that have that Parisienne feel. Her new collaboration with Kohl's designed for fashionistas who have a lot going on & want to arrive at their goals impeccably dressed. "I think clothes have a lot to say about who we are," adds the Esmod grad, "about romance, individuality and sensibility with a touch of poetry."
I was sent two pieces from the collection, a black flirty dress & a bold-stripe black/white cardi. Here are some of my other fave looks:
The Catherine Malandrino for DesigNation collection of dresses, skirts, pants, print tops, sweater & outwear will be available in October 2013 at Kohls.com.
