Designers turned to pop-up shops and diffusion lines to be creative and cope with the recession, and now, such methods have saturated the market. Getting creative again, designer Narciso Rodriguez opened a lower-priced eBay boutique launching February 15.
The eight-piece Narciso Rodriguez for eBay line features the designer's signature elegant garments in jersey and denim at lower prices that range from $75 for a tee to $300 for a reversible coat. A red, black, gray and white color palette characterizes a mostly graphic and minimalist look across the collection of dresses and belted trenches.
It's an interesting move, especially if Rodriguez is trying to capitalize on fellow elegent designer Naeem Khan's runaway success with his lower-priced collection for HSN. In this case, we do appreciate the decision to link up with an e-tailer already obsessed over in fashion circles for its vintage and offbeat indie e-boutiques.
