JCPenney is teaming up with Nigerian-born, London-based designer Duro Olowu. The exclusive collection, Duro Olowu for jcp, features apparel and accessories for women, as well as home goods, including dinnerware, stationery and décor items. Ranging in price from $10 to $100, Duro Olowu for jcp will be available this spring from March through May 2013 at most jcpenney stores and jcp.com.
Known for his vivid prints, Olowu combines the bold patterns and colors from his heritage with timeless silhouettes in his affordable collection for JCP. First Lady Michelle Obama is one of Olowu's most prominent fans, so you may have seen her wearing his pieces in the past. I can't say I was familiar with Olowu prior to this collab so I guess that's good exposure for him! Looking forward to checking it out in person.
Peep a few more pics after the jump.
