The PR wannabe in me always loves it when a high-end fashion house designs for a fast-fashion brand, because it’s like getting a care package of goodies right before Finals Week.

The iridescent hues are exciting and vibrant, but still cool. And each look would transition from the office to the club seamlessly. (more…)
