Each DesigNation collection will feature a different designer, marrying his or her aesthetic with influence from various international destinations.
Kohl’s aleady has fashion partnerships with Simply Vera Vera Wang, Jennifer Lopez and Lauren Conrad.
Rodriguez’s DesigNation collection for Kohl’s will feature apparel including outerwear, dresses, skirts, pants and shirts. Retail prices will range from$30 to $150. The collection will be available from November through December.
“In Istanbul, I found beauty in colors, textures and patterns, but also in the nuances of the city; the patina on the walls, the color of the stone and the way people moved…” Rodriguez said.
Rodriguez, the recipient of three CFDA Awards, has been named one of the “25 Most Influential Hispanics in America” byTime Magazine and won the Fashion Icon Award from the Pratt Institute, among many other honors.
Rodriguez also designed Michelle Obama’s black-and-red dress she wore on the night Barack Obama declared election-night victory in 2008.
