Catherine Malandrino Kohls Review (and you can buy it all online today, 9/24)

Started 1380021533.763 in Fashion Talk | Last reply 1380301098.427 by sunshine45

So I ordered a few pieces of this collaboration last week and it arrived yesterday.

I bought the faux leather jacket and the ponte slim pants.

Jacket: I'm always on the hunt for a nice faux leather jacket. I have several including a few from ZARA and from the Clinton Kelly line here on the Q. The one from Kohls is near the top of the heap in terms of styling and the fabric is very good. Faux leather can feel like an inner tube and reek of chemicals but Kohl's did a great job here of creating a material that's is soft, supple, and does feel like leather. The jacket has side panels of knitted material which makes the garment more forgiving and easier to were over the course of a long day. Sizing is generous-I ordered a size medium and could have sized down to a small. For the price (with sales, coupon, etc) it's comparable to what we've seen here at the Q, but the styling is just this much better. Of all the faux leather I've tried, I would still choose ZARA, but this is a close second.

Ponte Pants: Love them. The leg opening is similar to a skinny jean (15-in) so if that's not your favorite look, this might not be for you. The idea is that it look like a pant, not a legging, so be honest about your size and don't be afraid, as I did, to order up. Not all ponte is pleasing, but this one is soft, has some heft (hides the saddlebags), and is not shiny at all. Highly recommended.

Having been so disappointed by the Derek Lam collaboration with Kohls, I wasn't holding out much hope here. Happy to say, I am pleased.

I will be ordering a few more pieces.

ETA: if you order on the 27th use SAVING30 for 30% off.

As you know, on the day the thing go on sale, they'll knock off 20% and then you can take off another 30%. I would wait for Friday!

thanks gardensla.....i wonder if they are bringing it to every store on friday? if i wait until the 27th to order it online i am worried that a lot of it will be gone. sometimes these collections fly out the door and some head to ebay quickly at higher prices.

That seems to be worse at Target and sometime H&M than Kohl's which seems to bring in much more quantity. If you really, really want something, you could order it now (use CLEARANCE20 for 20% off) and on Friday, if its still available place a second order for the anticipated discounted price plus 30% code and simply return the first one. It would be extra work, but you'd know you had what you wanted.

Always a way to game the system, I guess!

Oh, from what I read, yes, to every store but many pieces are online only. by the way, if you go to the store and order at the kiosk (and you can use your 30% code on Friday at the Kiosk), shipping is free.

I ordered the jacket too and based on your comments, Gardensla, I ordered the small. I first thought about the medium thinking I might be wearing heavier sweaters and things underneath but I am hoping the small will be good. Also ordered one of the blouses. I really like what I have seen from this line - very cute things. I will probably go to Kohls on Friday and check out the skirts and slacks. I can order tops on line fairly easily but depending how a skirt of pants are cut, size could vary.

I stopped in at my store on Sat hoping the collection was out early -- I love some of these pieces -- wish there was a skirt that was a wee bit longer tho;) I'm going to order a couple of pieces - thanks for the codes!!

Thanks for the review! I may try the pants although I kind of wish they had put the faux lather trim down the sides and and made it a tuxedo pant instead of on the pockets where no one will see it. I like the design of all of the sweaters but the fabrication doesn't work for me. Love the graphic tees but think they are probably too young for me.

I was bummed about the sweater fabrication too! I'm highly allergic to wool so was hoping for some nice non-wool options but nada.....

If you order today use just4you.20 percent off.you can get a price adjustment if it gets marked down within 14 days.

I ordered several pieces and am happy with everything except the patent coat.I think it looks like a black trash bag (lol)

I was concerned about the coat looking too "plasticky". I am interested in the Eiffel Tower sweater and a few other pieces. I hope the pieces I want don't sell out before I can use my 30%, but I may buy and then return for price adjustment. Kohls is really good about that.

ordered six pieces today online......4 for me, 2 for my daughter. got the 25 percent off special they were offering, used the 30 percent off coupon, got free shipping, received 30.00 in kohls cash, AND used bigcrumbs and will be getting an additional 4 percent cash back.

hope everything works, but if not, my local kohls store is just two miles away so i can easily return them.
