Derek Lam is the latest big name designer to collaborate with Kohl’s as part of their DesigNation project. His bright, breezy spring collection was inspired by a trip to Rio de Janeiro, documented in this video that has in turn inspired me to start frantically checking airfare prices to Brazil. His Rio-ready designs are priced between $36 and $88 and will be available in stores and online April 5th. Can’t wait to check out these pieces in person! [Kohl's]
Designer collaborations with fast-fashion department stores make me sad. I love them in theory — my favorite big ticket aspirational brands producing clothing similar to their runway designs at a tangible price point sounds like a dream come true, but the reality of the situation isn’t nearly so fanciful. Waiting in long lines and fighting with other, more aggressive shoppers and prospective eBay sellers only to emerge with, like, two things you didn’t even want in the wrong size is not my idea of a satisfying retail experience (though I will wade through hell and high water to elbow my way into a J.

If not, here’s the general premise: a legendary female athlete (swimmer Dara Torres, skier Lindsey Vonn, and soccer star Mia Hamm have all been featured) sits in an empty room and talks about the intense experience of competing at a sport’s highest level. “When I’m out there, I am totally in the zone,” says Torres. “It’s a real adrenaline rush,” says Vonn. “I get pretty excited when I score,” says Hamm. But wait, there’s a twist! These women aren’t talking about sports… Keep reading »
Well, I suppose we should have known this was coming, as much as we may have wished that Rebecca Black’s horrible “Friday” was but a bitter, distant memory. The song, which became a sensation this summer for hell only knows what reason, is not being used by Kohl’s to advertise their Black Friday sale, the day after Thanksgiving. I shudder to think of how many extra dollars Rebecca Black suddenly has to spend as a result of this deal.
