7 Fashion Collabs Worth a Look
See who’s doing it right this year
From Alexander Wang for H&M to Nate Berkus for Target, fashion collaborations are no longer few and far between--they’re a retail staple. And 2015 is certainly off to a good start with a slew of fresh mash-ups. Take a look at what’s in store.
NikeLab x Sacai
Nike’s new collection with runway favorite Sacai embodies the "swoosh" mentality. Designer Chitose Abe put her signature spin on the heritage brand, creating accordian-pleated tops and peplum-enhanced hoodies. In other words, it's the prettiest sportswear you’ve ever seen.
Lilly Pulitzer x Target
Welcome to the great Target rush of 2015. Yesterday, iconic Palm Beach designer Lilly Pulitzer launched her first collaboration with Target and women everywhere lined up for the cheery, print-heavy fashion and home goods. We think we need these embossed dessert plates stat.
Keds x Oasis
Taylor Swift’s favorite shoe brand teamed up with the beloved U.K. clothing company to create four playful new pairs of kicks: two lace-up sneakers and two slip-ons. We’re partial to the leopard skaters.
Alexa Chung x AG Jeans
Everything’s comin’ up denim, and “it” girl Alexa Chung is taking the reins. Chaneling her own on-the-town look, Chung's 21-piece collaboration with AG includes an off-the-shoulder dress, a denim miniskirt, cropped flares and a whole lotta button-fly. (Backstory: Chung was inspired by a thrift-store aesthetic.)
Forget everything you know about Dressbarn. Available online and at select Dressbarn locations, fresh, new line Dressbar comes courtesy of runway designers Carmen Marc Valvo, Adrianna Papell and Heidi Weisel. Oh, and did we mention? It's very, very chic. With prices all around $100, it’s our new spot for spring and summer wedding ware.
Christopher Kane x NARS
Just in time for summer (and your tax refund), Christopher Kane's first-ever cosmetics collection for NARS has arrived. The assortment includes lip, cheek and eye makeup in gorgeous colors true to Kane's edgy-meets-femme style (think: magenta pink blush and glow-pink gloss).
Carine Roitfeld x Uniqlo
After Inès de la Fressange and Jil Sander, Uniqlo is on a roll with nabbing big-name fashion icons. And Roitfeld’s collection will be no exception. Set to launch at the end of October, the 40-piece line is a first for the CR Fashion Books author and global fashion director of Harper’s Bazaar. We don't know too much about it (we hear it's "clothing made to enhance everyday life"), but we have super-high expectations.
