Its fun to see the product of two creative forces coming together. ...continue reading the story called Spring 2013 Cool Collaborations!


Enlightened Jewelry Collaboration!

What happens when a talented designer like Rachel Roy joins forces with a spiritual guru like Deepak Chopra to design a jewelry collection? You get an enlightened collection of stackable rings, pendant necklaces and body chains that promote messages of empowerment. With symbols of truth, goodness, beauty, harmony and compassion, these Eastern-inspired, handcrafted pieces are gorgeous and add goodwill to your everyday style.

Another Fun Collaboration….

If you like minimalistic, no frills kind of fashion then you should check out Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein at Macy's Collection available now in stores.

This capsule collection of dresses features clean lines, muted hues, straight hemlines and unfussy shapes.

The Brazilian-born creative director was asked to design this collection by Macy's in celebration of his home country. Styles include architectural crepe and jersey dresses in the label’s signature neutrals. The palette is classic Calvin Klein--basic black and white, perfectly urban greys, and dashes of cool color here and there--and the silhouettes are totally flattering and simple. Dresses start at $135 and go up to $180.
