I realized it had been a while since I last featured a limited-edition designer collaboration and I thought with all of the hoopla surrounding LILLY PULITZER for TARGET, this amazing MILLY COLLECTION for KOHL’S DESIGNATION might be overlooked.
Have you guys heard or shopped MILLY before? While I’m not exactly the most flirty or feminine when it comes to my style aesthetic, I’ve always loved MILLY’s designs- especially for warmer weather and resortwear (her swimwear is the cutest). The line always seems to find the perfect balance between feminine and edgy, which is exactly what I crave and this collection for Kohl’s stays true to that balance.
MILLY for DesigNation, which makes it’s debut on April 23rd in stores and online, is inspired by designer Michelle Smith’s travels to Capri, Italy:
“The picturesque, ancient resort island of Capri influenced my DesigNation collaboration with Kohl’s,” said Michelle Smith. “Capri’s technicolor vistas, dynamic Mediterranean culture and signature Caprese style of effortlessly chic dressing (the Italians call it ‘sprezzatura’!) were the perfect inspiration for this collection. Every collection I design is a personal extension of myself and my experiences. As the MILLY by Michelle Smith collection defines luxurious, bold, feminine style, I’m thrilled to partner with Kohl’s to offer an exclusive taste of ‘La Dolce Vita’ to women across the country.”
A combination of bright, bold-patterned separates and dresses, the collection starts at only $38 and no piece retails for over $100. My favorite part?! It’s not just for the grown-ups! Smith also designed 2 dresses for the little girls in your life. As a mom herself, she thought it would be fun to let her little girl “dress like mom.”
Make sure to mark your calendars, as all Kohl’s DesigNation collabs go, this one is going to sell out fast! If you don’t think you can wait another month to get your hands on some of the great limited edition MILLY x DesigNation styles, I’ve rounded up some of the best MILLY looks available to shop now!
