Narciso Rodriguez for Kohl’s DesigNation lands in stores in a few weeks, and we can hardly wait! Neither can the Cuban-American designer’s loyal celebrity fans, including Julianna Margulies, Katie Holmes, and Emma Roberts, who all celebrated his new lineup in New York last night. “I love that he loves women,” Margulies told InStyle.com of why she’s a Narciso follower (he even made her wedding dress!), while wearing the $64 two-tone dress from the collection. “He respects us and he cuts dresses to looks best on a woman’s body. He loves a curve. And this dress? It’s just not going to go out of style.” Rodriguez is thrilled that his pals took to his creations, like Emma Roberts, who wore the collection’s $60 V-neck design. “When you see women who have such great style that look so beautiful, it makes me very proud,” he told us. “I approached designing this collection the same way I would approach my own collection. I love beautiful things, and there wasn’t any holding back on style or design. My objective was to create a beautiful collection.” Click through the gallery to preview the entire Narciso Rodriquez for Kohl’s DesigNation—which was inspired by his recent trip to Istanbul and is full of the clean lines and architectural inspirations he’s known for—and shop it when it lands in Kohl’s stores and kohls.com starting November 7th.
Kohl’s already has a long list of designer and celebrity partners—Vera Wang, Lauren Conrad, and Jennifer Lopez among them—and now it’s going one step further with the launch of DesigNation. The concept is simple: limited-edition collections by cool designers you already love. First up: Narciso Rodriguez, arriving in stores and at kohls.com in early November. Celebrities including Jessica Alba, Jennifer Lawrence, and Kristen Stewart love the Cuban-American designer’s clean lines and architectural inspirations. He brings all that and more to this collection, but at a fraction of the price of his signature line. Click through the gallery to preview the entire fall and holiday-ready line, inspired by a trip the designer took to Istanbul.
This photo of Michelle Williams walking her dog, Lucky, in Portland, combines two—nay, three!—of our favorite things. First, there’s an adorable puppy, and it’s no big secret how obsessed we are with celebrities’ pets. Secondly, there’s Michelle, who we can never get enough of—whether she’s wearing stripes, sporting polka dots, or just generally nerding out. And last (but definitely not least), there’s Narciso Rodriguez, who designed the clothes Michelle is wearing on her leisurely afternoon stroll. And not only that! These pieces are from his Instanbul-inspired DesigNation collection for Kohl’s, which isn’t even out yet! The line hits stores in November. So, yeah, that’s how “lucky” Michelle and her puppy are.

Narciso Rodriguez is about to get a lot more budget-friendly! Kohl’s just tapped the designer to launch a limited-run capsule collection this fall, WWD reports.

Lauren Conrad’s summer collection for Kohl’s is now in stores, and she filled it with easy-to-wear pieces that can make dressing for the season simpler than ever. “When designing, I like to imagine where the clothes will be worn,” Conrad told InStyle.com exclusively. “I was inspired by the season and everything that comes along with it—a beach BBQ, an afternoon bike ride, a picnic with friends.” The result includes printed dresses, flowy skirts, floral shorts, and bright platforms—all items that fit right in to any summer activity you might need a cute outfit for.

That’s definitely how I like to shop.” View the full campaign and on-set photos in the gallery now, and shop her colorful Candie’s pieces exclusively at Kohl’s this spring.

Lauren Conrad knows how to mix high and low for her accessories. Over the weekend, the reality-star-turned-designer toted a Chloe handbag, which is currently priced at $1,275 at bluefly.com (and that’s on sale). However, she finished her look with more wallet-friendly items, like gold metal frame Ray Ban sunglasses, available for $139 at ray-ban.com, and cute leopard flats that she designed for her LC Lauren Conrad line for Kohl’s. Pick up your own pair at kohls.com for $40, currently on sale from its original $55 price tag.
