Nanette Lepore used to be my #1 search target when I started this blog almost six years ago. I have been in love with her designs and fantastical girly-ness for years. Recently having launched a collaboration with JCPenney (or am I supposed to call them “jcp.” now?), I’m thinking that our chance to join the Nanette Lepore party is upon us.
Nanette Lepore’s vision materialized in the hue of neon for her latest collection – nary a black pant to be found. (Unless you count these leggings.) (Or these bedazzled hotpants?) In their place, you’ll find some more psychedelic staples, such as radioactive-pink jeggings, highlighter-yellow, sleeveless blouses, and neon-peach, empire waist tops a-plenty.
Lepore says that the collection was inspired by her 14-year-old daughter and is geared to shoppers in the 13-19 year old range – but I’m looking at some of these hi-lo tunics and sleeveless tops and thinking that we might be able to fudge the demographics a little bit.
The line is available online – right now, as a matter of fact! - at JCPenney’s website, and the prices are between $17 and $50. The line includes several things that I didn’t show off to you here, including this bralette, a $50 motorcycle jacket, and tons of gorgeous basics & separates.
