Eva Jeanbart-Lorenzotti for New York & Company

New York & Company is getting into the designer collaboration game with fashion trendsetter Eva Jeanbart-Lorenzotti for an exclusive apparel and accessories collaboration. Eva is the founder of luxury retail site VIVRE, has been a mentor on Lifetime's "Project Accessory" and was hailed as one of the "ten most stylish
women in fashion" by Vogue magazine.

Inspired by New York City, Eva's collections for NY&C will include items ranging from statement bracelets, necklaces and handbags to embellished and sophisticated jackets, tops and pants. Eva's signature embellishment for the collaboration is the snake, slithering onto everything from the logo, to bracelet cuffs and closure details on handbags (see the fringe tote above).

Look for this collection at New York & Company stores in October, with additional collections coming in November and December 2012.
