Olowu had this to say about the line, "This collection is for anyone, from 18 to 80... Everything has a flattering element, whether you mix prints or pull out one piece and keep it simple.".
When asked about his relationship with JCP, he said, "I am proud to partner with jcpenney to create and launch this new seasonal collection...Working with jcpenney has allowed me to merge my vision of style and quality with their affordability, resulting in a line that is stylish, beautifully made and accessible. It has been an exciting experience to bring this fashion and home collection to life.”
He described his collection as, "I’ve always tried to give women a sense of inner beauty with joy, and now it’s just the right time to make that more democratic. When I was thinking about this collection, I wanted to give American classic shapes and ideas a global flair".
What can we expect from Olowu? From what I've seen in the preview pictures, lots of radiant, vivid warm colors and fun chromatic patterns. The collection will be available at JCP stores and online starting in March through May 2013.
