Hilary Duff Teams Up with DKNY Jeans for a Stylish New Line
Move over Rachel Bilson, DKNY Jeans is gearing up to turn another celebrity into a design star. Hilary Duff has just announced that she’s partnering with the label to co-create a collection of rocker-chic pieces for the Femme for DKNY Jeans collection. And the partnership was a natural choice for Hilary, who made sure she was picking the right partner. “I took time finding the right fashion house to collaborate with in a design partnership,” she says. “I have always adored and worn DKNY jeans, so it made perfect sense to reach out to them. We hit it off immediately, sharing a design vision offering something special for young women like me.” And what do women like Hilary want? Versatility, for one thing. Duff plans to fill the collection with multi-functional garments, including tunics with removable cowl scarves and skinny jeans with loops that adjust between thin and wide belts. The multi-platinum star is also making sure the collection reflects her signature style by balancing feminine details like poppies and sequins with tougher elements like vinyl, motorcycle details and menswear fabrics. Prices for the pieces, which will hit stores in August, will range from $39 for a tee to $129 for outerwear. Tell us: What do you think of Hilary’s collaboration? Will you buy her clothing?
