Kohl's Nabs Elie Tahari for Upcoming DesigNation Capsule Collection

Elie Tahari will design Kohl's Department Stores's fifth DesigNation limited-edition collection, the retailer reported.

Regarded as one of the most recognizable names in luxury fashion, Elie Tahari will draw creative inspiration from New York City for his DesigNation collection, as the city is a place the designer has called home for over 40 years.

The capsule collection mirroring the sophisticated, urban chic vibe of the city will feature women's apparel sold exclusively at Kohl's and Kohls.com beginning fall 2014.

"I am thrilled to partner with Kohl's to create an accessible collection that draws influence from the iconic architecture and vibrant energy of the streets of New York City, a place that has provided me with endless inspiration throughout my career," said Tahari. "Every woman should feel confident and beautiful in what she wears, so each piece in this DesigNation collection will reflect an alluring femininity with a sleek downtown edge that allows a woman's true beauty to shine through."

Renowned for his keen ability to maintain design integrity throughout every collection, Tahari is noted for using delicate, luxurious fabrics, subtle textures and intricate detailing in his clothing. His DesigNation collection will feature this same aesthetic and will include dresses, sweaters, knit tops and bottoms in shades of blue, black and ivory, all at an incredible value. Retail prices for the collection will range from $40 to $175.

"2014 marks Elie Tahari's 40th anniversary and we are excited to commemorate this celebratory year by partnering with him to offer women everywhere the signature Elie Tahari style and quality at an affordable price point," said Michelle Gass, Kohl's chief customer officer. "For the past four decades, Tahari has excelled at dressing the ‘modern woman' and we are confident our customers will embrace the elegant sophistication of this exclusive DesigNation collection."

Launched in fall 2012, Kohl's DesigNation collections make designer style accessible and affordable by bringing the latest runway-inspired looks to real life. Each collaboration offers a fresh point of view that combines an iconic designer aesthetic with influence from various global destinations.

Through these collections Kohl's meets its objective of providing amazing product at incredible savings to customers. Past designers include Narciso Rodriguez, Derek Lam and Catherine Malandrino with the upcoming collaboration with Peter Som launching on April 10, 2014.
