Olivia Palermo on What Makes an Article of Clothing Look Expensive
Every so often the fashion collaboration stars align and you get a collection so good, so perfect, that you wonder what your closets were like before it arrived. Such is the case with Olivia Palermo’s latest project with in-house Nordstrom label Chelsea28.
Tomorrow, the entrepreneur, model, style icon, and designer will release a 32-piece collection that ranges from a bold pajama set in a poppy floral print to a tailored denim jumpsuit you won’t want to take off. The best part? It’s a yearlong deal, so there’s more to come.
We caught up with Palermo in New York to preview the stylish assortment (prices range from $68 to $448 USD). Scroll down to see what she had to say about the collection—including what makes a clothing piece look expensive!
"[The collection is for] a younger age group, so I think it was really important that I started by building a foundation. And because we are doing this for autumn, spring, and the holiday season, I thought it was important to build throughout the collections. I call them lifewear pieces."
"We're still in U.S. winter when the collection hits stores, and the temperature is kind of in between, so I really wanted the girls to be able to wear pieces now because that's how the girl shops—she wants something immediately—so really trying to have this well edited and think about that."
