First Look: Narciso Rodriguez's Istanbul-Inspired Collection for Kohl's

Kohl's has released two looks from the forthcoming Narciso Rodriguez for Kohl's collection (via WWD), including an open-front fuchsia coat and boxy colorblock sheath.

The Narciso Rodriguez limited-edition collection is part of a concept that Kohl's is calling "DesigNation" which will be a series of fashions based on "international inspiration" from different premiere designers. The Cut says Derek Lam is rumored to be next, but nothing's been confirmed.

Rodriguez drew his inspiration from a trip to Istanbul, Turkey earlier this year. "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" said Rodriguez in a press release.

Rodriguez's DesigNation collection for Kohl's will feature misses apparel including outerwear, dresses, skirts, pants and shirts. Retail prices for the collection will range from $30 to $150. The collection will be available from November through December 2012.

When I first announced this news, there wasn't much enthusiasm from readers. Have your feelings changed now that you've gotten a glimpse of the collection? Who's excited for this?

I think it looks very chic! I'm just worried about fit, sometimes these things look great in ads and then they're terribly fit in stores. otherwise i'm excited!

So modern! The looks/styles are so similar to Saks and Nordstrom campaign emails. Can't afford Saks clothes, but this looks high designer, considering it's going to Khol's. I can't wait!
