When it comes for forging killer collabs, few do it better than online shopping juggernaut, NET-A-PORTER.COM. They set the bar pretty high the hugely successful collaboration with King Karl, but we're seriously smitten with the new exclusive collection from ex-Ungaro designer, Esteban Cortazar (who for the record, wasn't at the helm for the LiLo 'Creative Director' saga).
Esteban worked very closely with the NET-A-PORTER.COM team to get the 30 strong collection developed and shoppable, which we of course are very thankful for seeing as summer is just around the corner and the nearly all-white collection is just screaming out to be worn.
'Through a chance encounter with Esteban after he had left Ungaro, we conceived the idea of his return to fashion with a collection that will be available for sale the moment it is revealed to the world,' said Holli Rogers, Fashion Director at NET-A-PORTER.COM. 'We have never been this engaged with a designer from concept and production and, ultimately, through an exclusive launch directly to the public, forgoing the conventional approach of showing the collection six months before it becomes available to the public. We felt this was a wonderful opportunity to support a young designer and re-establish his business by creating an exclusive partnership on NET-A-PORTER at the same time.'
Esteban Cortazar 'Cape-back duchess satin and cady' jacket | £984.04 and Esteban Cortazar 'Leather, twill and duchess satin' mini skirt | £375
Esteban Cortazar 'Cape-back wool-blend and duchess satin' jacket | £540 and Esteban Cortazar 'Slit-detailed satin' pants | £458.33
Yep, so as you can see, the whole collection will no doubt get you doubting whether you really need to pay rend this month. The the clincher of this collection? Those shoes. Those, sweet, sweet shoes. Not suprisingly, these have sold out, but more stock is coming soon, which will give you enough time to scrounge around looking for some sneaky gold coins to pay for them, or possibly take up a second job.
