It-Girl Vanessa Traina Collaborates with French Label, Maje

Maje

Vanessa Traina, daughter of romance novelist Danielle Steele, is lending some of her downtown cool factor to contemporary French label, Maje, in a 14-piece capsule collection set to hit stores at the end of this month, WWD reports.

Traina is often cited as a source of inspiration for high-end designers like Jack and Lazaro Hernandez, Joseph Altuzarra, and Alexander Wang, so the collaboration—Traina's first ever attempt at design—feels suprisingly "mid-range," or at least affordable for a woman with an infamous penchant for Prada turbans and Kirkwood sandals.

None of this is to say it's in poor taste: The complete line, consisting of 14 silky separates, is meant to evoke '90s-era minimalism through exacting silhouettes and precisely-tailored fits—a wisely restrained choice for Traina's first design effort. Of course, we'll hold out hope for a turban should the two collaborate next season. For now, mark your calendars for March 23, when the collection hits shelves at Barney's New York.
