Another collaboration, another failed attempt at controlling my shopping habit.

And indeed, it has almost become a habit for me to “buy something” from a fashion collaboration. We are now in the month of March and have witnessed an avalanche of collaborations – Prabal Gurung for Target, Oscar de la Renta for The Outnet and JW Anderson for Topshop. US retailer J.C. Penney has joined in the race and partnered with Nigerian-born designer Duro Olowu. The limited edition Duro Olowu x JCP collection was launched on 1st March.

Currently based in London, Duro Olowu is well-known for his vibrant African prints and feminine silhouette. This is the first JCP collaboration, and the selection and quality looks amazing – I have been snooping around several US fashion blogs to verify the quality and fabric. The pricing is also very reasonable; a blouse costs about US$30, and dress is priced at US$50-60.

Tempted? I love that all the pieces are so wearable, vibrant and classy. I could visualise myself donning all the above outfits to the office. They are calling my name… Help!

J.C. Penney does not ship directly to Singapore, but you can get the items delivered to a US address via freight forwarding service such as Borderlinx or Hopshopgo. Happy shopping!

原本以为今年春季的平价合作系列已经推出得七七八八。先是Prabal Gurung for Target, 接着又是 Oscar de la Renta for The Outnet 以及 JW Anderson for Topshop. 来自美国的JC Penney也与目前驻伦敦的南非设计师Duro Olowo合作,第一次推出设计师平价系列。整个系列概念非常鲜明,主轴鲜明亮眼的非洲图案,剪裁适合都市上班族女性。看来,本人又要开始瞎拼了!
