Pulitzer and Pottery Barn team up for exclusive home line

It’s officially spring, but in some locales, it doesn’t quite feel like spring yet — cold temperatures, maybe even some snow and a lack of outdoor activities may be keeping spring from actually, well, springing into our lives. But a brand-new home collaboration is about to change that.

According to Refinery29, pretty and preppy brand Lilly Pulitzer has partnered with Pottery Barn to produce the *most* adorable and beachy home collection ever. Filled with signature Lilly colors and prints, Refinery29 says the collection ranges from “pillows and bedding to furniture and rugs,” and even debuts some new patterns.

While the line sure sounds like a dream come true, especially for those us who are Lilly lovers (or just beach lovers!), you may not want to make a purchase just yet: Refinery29 reports that pieces from the collection come with a hefty price tag, with furniture ranging from $649 to $1,499, while smaller home accessories — like pillows and pillow covers, votive holders or drinkwear — coming in at more affordable prices.

Did we mention that the Lilly Pulitzer collaboration also extends into their PBTeen and Pottery Barn Kids offerings? With fun bedding and room furnishings, this collection offers a perfect punch of color and personality to usher spring into any room of your home, including the kids’ rooms.

Ratajkowski partners with The Kooples for new bag collection

Model and actress Emily Ratajkowski can now add a new item to her resume: handbag designer.

According to PopSugar, Ratajkowski partnered with French fashion retailer The Kooples to design the brand’s first handbag collection, one of which the 26-year-old debuted at The Koople’s launch event at Hotel de Crillon in Paris. The model also served as the entire Fall 2017 collection.

Named the “Emily,” PopSugar says the handbag “comes in a boxy silhouette with adjustable straps and gold hardware” and is “offered in red, black, and taupe,” while also available in three different sizes, so you can be sure to snag the style that works best for you.

While the purse doesn’t go on sale until Sept. 1, PopSugar reports that the purse is currently available for preorder, with the small version priced at $375 and the larger version retailing for $495.

 

Macy’s secures Anna Sui capsule collection

High fashion is coming to Macy’s this fall, and this is one collaboration you won’t want to miss.

According to FashionistaAnna Sui will be releasing a capsule collection with Macy’s this September, creating a limited-edition line in collaboration with INC International Concepts (a Macy’s house label). The move comes in an attempt to increase the retailer’s exclusive options, reports Fashionista, which aims to remedy their branding strategy.

While the Anna Sui x INC collaboration attempts to bolster Macy’s offerings, make no mistake: the signature style of Anna Sui will remain just as fashionable as ever.

Fashionista says Macy’s GVP of Private Brand Marketing Strategy Tim Reid said in a release announcing the collection that shoppers can “expect for Sui’s ‘signature whismy and eclectic edge’ to be well-represented, with what the release describes as ‘feminine prairie accents and hints of glamour with lace details, fringe and embroidered florals.'”

The collection will be available in early September, says Fashionista, with 25 Macy’s stores and Macys.com carrying the line of men’s apparel, as well as women’s apparel, shoes, handbags and jewelry.

 

Rihanna dives into jewelry design

Fine jewelry is about to get a little finer, thanks to a new Rihanna collaboration.

Launching in May at the Cannes Film Festival, ELLE reports that the singer and fashion icon’s new jewelry line — “Rihanna Loves Chopard” — will draw “inspiration from the gardens and Carnival celebrations of Barbados, Rihanna’s native island.”

To design the nine-piece collection, ELLE says Rihanna worked with Chopard’s creative director, Caroline Scheufele, making a limited-edition jewelry line in which there are only 2,000 of each piece made. Though the collection is rather finite, Scheufele said in a statement that it’s easy to feel Rihanna’s boundless energy in the line, according to ELLE.

“Rihanna and I collaborated closely on the collections,” she said, “so you can feel her unstoppable energy, strong creativity, and inherent sense of design in every piece,”

With limited quantities available of a high-profile collection, the cost of owning even one of Rihanna’s designs should come as no surprise: ELLE reports that pieces are “available for pre-order now and range from a $1,460 ring to a $11,140 necklace (both made of ethically sourced materials), to a “price upon request” (aka very expensive) all-diamond watch.”

 

Keller named Givenchy artistic director

Sometimes, departing one job can lead to bigger and better things — even making company history.

That’s exactly the case for Clare Waight Keller, who ELLE reports will assume the position of artistic director for luxury fashion brand Givenchy, making her the first female to take the title.

Announced on March 16 on Instagram, ELLE says the news follows her January departure from Chloé, the French fashion house where she served in the same role for six years. She takes the place of outgoing fashion director Riccardo Tisci.

Beckham brings signature style to Target

April 9 may seem like a random spring day, but for Target, it’s the day Victoria Beckham descends on the mass retailer.

According to Vogue, Beckham’s long-awaited collaboration with Target will finally launch on April 9 at Target and on victoriabeckham.com, treating customers to a modern, yet whimsical collection of both child and adult clothing.

While Beckham is most known for her upscale designs for her self-named fashion label, Glamour reports that this collaboration will make high style available to shoppers of all budgets, with prices starting at $6 and capping at $70 and ” most items falling below the $40 mark.”

Though the line features ’60s-inspired florals and playful patterns, each piece in the collaboration offers tailored, fitted pieces that look much more expensive than their price tags admit. Take, for example, the Black Daisy Peplum Top: with oversized flowers strewn about the top, the bold floral doesn’t overtake the top’s structure, which has a clearly defined waist and bust that will only create shape and curves.

Comprised of over 150 pieces, Beckham told Vogue that the accessibility of her clothing has been a chief concern for her and her brand. “It has always been important to me that my designs reach women all over the world,” she said. “I think it’s great [and] it’s a collection that women everywhere can enjoy.”
