It was announced yesterday that American fashion designer Nanette Lepore will create a line exclusively for jcpenney. The teen-focused line, “l’amour nanette lepore”, will be merchandised in a “store within a store” environment, which is becoming increasingly popular with large retailers looking to add a luxury feel to their stores. While the line, inspired by Lepore’s own teenage daughter, will be aimed for girls aged 13-20, don’t think that won’t stop me from getting in line. I love the girly and feminine look of Nanette Lepore, which still manages to look sophisticated. I’m hoping to see this aesthetic translated to the jcpenney collection.
Here are some of my favorite looks from Nanette Lepore’s Spring 2012 Ready to Wear Collection.
