It was recently announced that Peter Som will be teaming up with Kohl’s for the retailer’s latest designer collaboration.
The collab will be part of the Kohl’s DesigNation line, which features limited-edition designer capsule collections inspired by international destinations. For his upcoming spring collection, Som was inspired by the tropical locale of St. Barth’s.
Som spoke to WWD about his DesigNation collection:
“I love print, pattern and color. Some of the prints in the collection are based on things in St. Barth’s, done in my slightly abstract way. There are palm trees and flowers. It’s done through the filter of what I love. The collection has a nice easy feeling, which I think is the way women dress now. We have some great maxi dresses. There are bomber-style jackets and great jersey pieces. It’s effortless dressing. For me, it was great working with Kohl’s. It shows it’s possible to create effortless style at a great price point.”
The collection will be available exclusively at Kohl’s stores and online starting in Spring 2014, with prices ranging from $36 to $88.
