Rumors started swirling this summer, and now it's official! Kohl's has just announced that its second DesignNation partner—after Narciso Rodriguez's collection launches this November—will be New York designer Derek Lam.
Lam's Kohl's collaboration, which is inspired by Brazil's Rio De Janeiro, will hit stores nationwide next spring.
"I'm always looking to the past for inspiration, but also trying to interpret it as how we live in contemporary life," Lam said in a statement. "I think Rio is a perfect example of a place that does that and leads the way... it's one of my favorite cities."
