Narciso Rodriguez on EBay? Confirmed!


Narciso Rodriguez = affordable??  Not until now!

The Cuban designer’s name made front pages nationwide after dressing Michelle Obama in her red and black election-night dress.  I vividly remember scratching my head in contemplation and eager anticipation that evening as I guessed which designer she was wearing – and then saw his name everywhere the next day.

Yesterday, at his Bryant Park Fashion Week show, Narciso Rodriguez confirmed that eBay will offer a capsule collection of his styles this coming Spring 2010.  Did you hear correctly?  Yes — the designer whose dresses typically go for $1,800 and up is offering eight styles (3 dresses, 2 tops, a skirt, jacket, and trenchcoat) to be sold on an eBay exclusive store ranging from $75-350.  Interestingly, according to the WSJ, the designer has previously shunned the idea of doing collections for stores like H&M or Target, but is now turning over a new leaf.

eBay’s site itself promotes the collection here!  **Also, check out these preview sketches:
