Soon you won’t have to pay in the thousands to scoop up one of Doo-Ri Chung’s pieces. The New York designer—whose fans include Jessica Chastain, Kristen Stewart, and Michelle Obama—created a lower-price collection of dresses, tops, pants, and trenches for Macy’s ranging from $39 to $159, set to hit stores next month. “Macy’s really wanted me to stay true to my own style,” Chung told InStyle.com. “To have accessibility that I would have never been able to reach is amazing.” And she didn’t skimp on the quality: “I really wanted to pick fabrics that stayed within the price point but felt luxurious,” she explained. “The knits still feel soft!” Preview some of the lineup in the gallery now, and shop the collection in stores and macys.com starting February 15th.
Macy’s newest guest designer is Doo-Ri Chung! ”My clothes have always been about making women feel elegant and modern, which is why I am so excited about this capsule collection,” the designer said in a statement. The line, priced from $39 to $159, will feature mini and maxi dresses, leggings and trenches, all in a palette of blues and grays with pops of red, black and orange. These are elements of her main line, which is loved by celebrities like Jessica Chastain, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Michelle Obama, who just wore a look by the designer to a state dinner in South Korea. The collection will land at Macy’s February 15th.

Muted tones of stone, cream and charcoal and draped jersey silhouettes were prominent at the Fall 2011 Doo.Ri show. The collection mixed fluid lines with more structured pieces piped with leather and strong, covered-up silhouettes revealed glimpses of thigh-grazing lace-up boots.

Designer Doo.Ri Chung (inset), who has dressed Kristen Stewart, Amanda Seyfried and Megan Fox, teamed up with jewelry designer Melissa Joy Manning to create a line of eco-friendly jewelry that just landed in stores. “Fallen spider webs were a key theme in the development of Doo.Ri’s collection,” Manning told InStyle of the pieces, which debuted at Doo.Ri’s spring 2011 fashion show and are made of recycled silver in Manning’s eco-certified Berkeley, California studio. “I had been independently documenting webs found in nature, so this was an ideal collaboration that came together easily under our collective efforts.” The cuffs, necklaces and rings are available online at LaGarconne.com.

Actress Bryce Dallas Howard landed a modeling job as the face of Kate Spade‘s spring 2011 campaign. Howard, the 29-year-old daughter of Ron Howard who starred in Hereafter, The Village, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, is the first celebrity to star to pose for the label in the brand’s 18-year history (and it’s her first campaign, too). She perfects the playful, colorful aspects of the label in the photographs, posing with a bullhorn while draped in Kate Spade clothes, bracelets, shoes and bags. For more Bryce Dallas Howard style, check out some of her most memorable red-carpet looks in the gallery.
New York Fashion Week is off to a chic start, forcing me to choose not one, but two looks from yesterday’s collections. Jason Wu‘s bright pink gown was the embodiment of spring—gorgeous color, feminine and a modern take on red carpet dressing (a perfect choice for Diane Kruger, who sat front row at his show). Doo.ri‘s entire collection was clean, soft and beautifully constructed. My favorite look was the cream silk gauze coat and white pant—simple, minimal and chic.
