7 Spring Collaborations That Prove 2 Designers Are Better Than 1
Thanks to the craze of viral collaborations like Lilly Pulitzer for Target and Balmain x H&M, the best designers in the industry continue to team up. We don't blame them — when two really great fashion houses or retailers meet, a beautiful romance full of top-notch clothes and accessories is born.
Givenchy Creative Director Riccardo Tisci just unveiled his NikeLab activewear, a stylish, kaleidoscopic addition to any girl's wardrobe, and we've already got seriously striking shoes on our must-have list thanks to the likes of Rihanna and Manolo Blahnik and Misha Nonoo and Aldo.
But there are even more options for doubling up on designers this Spring. Read on for a well-curated list of the collaborations you simply can't skip over as you shop.
Target x Marimekko
Playful graphics are splashed on swimsuits, clothing, accessories, and a whole range of outdoor goods for the adventurer.
Riccardo Tisci x NikeLab
A line of look-at-me gymwear is infused with sexy yet sporty details straight from the Givenchy mastermind. But don't underestimate the performance quality of these mesh-paneled shorts, leggings, and crop tops.
Madewell x Giejo
Not only are these poppy monokini and two-pieces unforgettable, but they're also made solely from reclaimed materials thanks to sustainable label Giejo. They're the must have for your next beach vacation.
Olivia Palermo x Chelsea28
The stylish business lady churned out separates we'd find in her own closet for Nordstrom's label Chelsea28. It's downright tough to pick a favorite piece.
Rihanna x Manolo Blahnik
Is there any designer partnership more covetable than Rihanna x Manolo Blahnik? When you take a good look at these denim thigh-high heels, complete with embellished stirrups, we think not. The limited-edition line of sexy footwear was unveiled for the first time in British Vogue, alongside RiRi's cover.
Rodarte x & Other Stories
The sequins, patchwork details, and clear-quality structure of the new Rodarte x & Other Stories line are inimitable, to say the least. We could work up an entire week's worth of outfits with the collaboration alone.
Misha Nonoo x Aldo Rise
This isn't the first time Misha Nonoo has created need-now shoes for Aldo. This Spring, the feminine platforms, mules, and leather sandals are the type your eyes dart to immediately when you're standing storefront.
