Narciso Rodriguez for Kohl's

Kohl's gives Target and H&M a run for their money with its newly launched DesignNation designer collaboration series, kicking off with Narcisco Rodriguez. One of the foremost American designers of the past 20 years, Rodriguez has a penchant for clean lines and modern sensibility that have made fans of Michelle Obama and Katie Holmes -- and are a seemingly perfect match for the no-frills Kohl's shopper. Launching Wednesday, the Istanbul-inspired diffusion line includes tops, skirts, dresses, pants and jackets from $30 to $150. (Available at Kohl's locations and www.kohls.com.)
