There are lots of great designer collaborations in bloom this spring. As much as I love the collaboration between two popular brands, I equally love the unexpected collaborations. Its fun to see the product of two creative forces coming together. Here are my top Spring 2013 Collaborations: The Derek Lam for Kohl's DesigNation collection is a perfect getaway-themed collection. Priced at $36-$98, you'll find breezy knit tops, silky maxi skirts, bold-printed rompers, and chic long vests for layering. Available in stores April 5. The London-based label, Preen, teamed up with Aldo to create a lineup defined by bold pops of color and reptilian prints, all priced at $155. Available in Aldo stores now.
Model Lily Aldridge partnered with Velvet on a capsule filled with apropos model off-duty pieces. My favorite pieces from this collection are the Ruby army jacket($149), which is a perfect Spring jacket and a must have for layering as well as the Lily Crochet Dress ($150). Available now at Velvet's website.Stylist Cher Coulter (her clients include Kate Bosworth and Sienna Miller) teamed up with AG Jeans, to create quirky-cool pieces perfect for Spring like this butterfly-print legging jean ($225) and Floral Cropped Jeans ($225). Available now at AG Jeans website. Diane von Furstenberg x Roxy collection is a fabulous 35 piece collection of swimsuits, rash guards cover ups and more at great prices ($30-$90). My favorites from the collection are the Roxy Clover Bikini Top and Bottom ($90) and the Roxy Beach Garden Monokini ($88). Available now.
