New York, NY (PRWEB) December 14, 2005
Spiegel president and chief executive officer Geralynn Madonna and world-renowned fashion designer Norma Kamali announce the launch of Norma Kamali Timeless, an exclusive apparel collection for Spiegel’s spring 2006 catalog, which will be available in January 2006.
Madonna and Kamali recognized the demand in the marketplace for clothes that are functional, sophisticated and feminine. The collaboration between the two fashion icons is as innovative as the businesses themselves. Both are celebrated for catering to the multi-faceted woman, but now Kamali and Spiegel have taken what was once out of reach for most and made it more obtainable.
"Timeless to me means a piece of clothing you can wear forever, a piece that's versatile, easy to care for and priced right," said Kamali. "This collection is all these things."
With price points from $12-$89, the collection gives women the option of purchasing exclusive pieces from Kamali’s lifestyle jersey collection for a lot less – something unique in designer fashion.
Created from jersey knit for beauty, comfort and convenience, the 17-piece collection is available in solid black, dark red, and select pieces in black and red stripe, allowing all pieces to be mixed and matched. The collection features three convertible pieces – an All-in-One Dress, an All-in-One Mini, and a Tie-Waist Skirt – which can be transformed to create numerous styles.
"There are few designers that are as inspirational as Norma," said Madonna. "She created timeless, versatile fashion before anyone else did and has been designing and reinventing fashion for more than three decades. Partnering with her to bring this collection to women everywhere has been a dream come true."
The Norma Kamali/Spiegel joint venture is unlike any other designer/retail partnership that currently exists. Not only will the collection be sold through the Spiegel catalog and website (http://www.Spiegel.com), but it will also be available at Norma Kamali’s New York boutique at Spiegel prices – another first in designer fashion. Together, these two fashion houses are maintaining their devotion to offer women versatile fashion that truly is timeless.
