When I first heard news of the Derek Lam for DesigNation/Kohls collaboration, like everyone, I was pretty excited. Unfortunately, when I saw the look book for the line, I quickly lost interest. The price points were a lot higher than Target's and most of the styles and cuts didn't appeal to me. I'd never purchased a DesigNation product from Kohl's before so I had no idea what the general quality was like, and given that the line launched the same day as FH's birthday, well I just plum forgot about it.
This dress has definitely made me rethink DesigNation at Kohl's. While I'm still not crazy about the other styles and cuts that are available in this line, I'm am more than impressed with the quality and fit. I do hope that Kohl's starts to push the envelope a bit more and play it less on the safe side... though a quick look at the Catherine Malandrino line shows its happening any time soon (minus that laser cut out dress. Amazing. ❤).
