A fashion designer whose work we admire, Catherine Malandrino, is coming to HSN, according to InStyle magazine.
Apparently the home shopping network did a breakfast preview of her French-themed collection in Manhattan last week. We were surprised to learn that the designer is French, we always assumed she was Italian.
Malandrino’s “French Rendez-Vous” collection will bow on the No. 2 home shopping channel on July 28. She will do five fashion lines, each one dedicated to a different city in France, InStyle reported.
Paris is up first.
InStyle liked what it saw. The magazine wrote that “the pieces are as crave-inducing as a baguette.”
Mmmmmmmmmm, we’re getting hungry.
“Home shopping is one of the few areas of retail that have remained almost entirely upbeat during this topsy-turvy time for designers,” InStyle wrote. “Malandrino’s approach will be distinguished by creating video travel guides to the cities she wants to feature, like Courchevel, her Alpine hometown, this fall, and St. Barts for spring 2017.”
