>> Eddie Borgo's six-piece, limited-edition collection is now available online at J.Crew. Launched in honor of the designer's CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund runner-up win, the accessories capsule of belts, cuffs, and necklaces features the same kind of edgy-chic aesthetic found in Borgo's own jewelry line. The prices, however, are much more accessible than his main line. A leather bow-pin, dotted with gold-plated brass studs, retails at $38, while a fringed, mesh-pocket necklace (the most expensive of the batch) rings in at $175. The oppurtunity to reach more fans through the collection was not lost on Borgo. "I think that modern women have a real ability to experiment with fashion, and brands like J.Crew provide the accessibility to try new things," he told Stylelist.
On Thursday, June 16, the Eddie Borgo collection for J. Crew will launch online. The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund runner-up designed a six-piece collection available exclusively to J. Crew. Ladies who love Borgo's signature tough/glam hybrid should mark their calendars. Click through the slideshow to see a sneak peek at the collection!
>> Prabal Gurung's six-piece collaboration with J.Crew — which features looks from his past collections recreated in new colors and materials — launches online and in select stores today. The collection ranges from $198 for a pair of tuxedo trousers to $450 for a tulle rose top with a mesh back, and only 50 pieces were created for some of the designs.
"I played with volume and scale and focused on a few special pieces with a story to tell — it's very modern, chic, and put-together, but there's also a lived-in quality," Gurung said of the collection. "There's a subtext and sub-layers to the designs we chose for J.Crew," he noted, adding: "I worked closely with the J.Crew team to determine the looks that would translate well with both of our audiences. They did a stellar job producing each piece and I could not be happier with how everything turned out."
Eddie Borgo's J.Crew collaboration, meanwhile, hits in July — a preview can be seen here.
