So, this is happening: United Bamboo designed a small capsule collection for Madewell and it hits stores tomorrow.
Considering most collaborations are accompanied with a boatload of buzz--some might even call it hysteria in certain cases (ahem, Missoni for Target)--we're not sure how this truly awesome one wasn't on our radar before today. But never mind, now we know--thanks to Lucky, who tipped us off. And we can't wait.
The five-piece collection, priced between $125-$350, includes two blouses, two dresses and a coat--all a perfect mix between Madewell's preppy-cool style and United Bamboo's quirky, intellectual and arty aesthetic. To wit, one of the blouses' prints comes from a painting by Parisian artist Pier Fichefeux, which he lent exclusively to the brand. Fancy.
