Bonjour mes amis!
Well, ever since I saw the sneak peaks of Catherine Malandrino designs for Kohl’s DesigNation via instagram, I have been excitedly waiting for the collection to hit stores. Malandrino is a European fashion designer (born to Italian parents in France). Malandrino’s designs capture the romantic elegance of Paris and the sophistication of New York while maintaining the casual urban vibe of both. Since like Gertrude Stein, America is my country and Paris is my hometown, I am a fan of Malandrino’s timeless looks.

|“Paris Mon Amour” Tee $40, on sale for $30|
|Colorblock Top $40, on sale for $30|
1. The Eiffel Tower Black Sheath Dress
2. Longsleeved “Paris Mon Amour” Top
3. Longsleeved Colorblock Top Featuring a Lock Design
The design of this top could have been more creative but how cannot exclude a top that reminds me of the padlocks on bridges in Paris. These are locks or padlocks placed by lovers onto the bridge to symbolize the love getting locked or being everlasting. It is a custom not exclusive to Paris but Paris is the only place I’ve seen it done. This basic top would look adorable with a short but full pleated black skirt.
Let me know if you see this collection in person.
