Peter Som x Kohl's: The Clothes You'll Want Next Spring
Digital Fashion Writer
Following in the footsteps of Narciso Rodriguez, Derek Lam and Catherine Malandrino, Peter Som announced this morning that he's joining Kohl's DesigNation series. The initiative charges designers to create a wallet-friendly capsule collection inspired by an international locale, like Narciso Rodriguez's Istanbul collection and Catherine Malandrino's Paris one.
Som's St. Barth's-inspired edition, on the other hand, should be a beachy change of pace; think punchy colors and breezy, hangs-softly-on-your-body fabrics like the stuff in his sketches above. They're the sort of things that'll shift your mindset to a "whatever, it's vacation" laidbackness no matter where you're wearing them. (That stripey maxi dress needs no accessories to be a great dinner outfit, and those pants look not only polished but also drapey and cozy. I could see myself wearing them a lot.)
Available next spring, the collection will be an even bigger temptation when you consider the prices, starting at $36 and topping off at just $88, so they're happy, no fuss clothes with a non-intense price tag, too. I've never been to St. Barth's, but I'm definitely a fan of that.
