Norma Kamali Launches Kamali Kulture (And Prices Start At $55!)
March 14, 2012
Famous for her multi-functional shapes and pioneering designs during the late ’70s and early ’80s (including that red Farrah Fawcett one-piece, yowza!), Norma Kamali is staging a comeback in a major way.
Or maybe we shouldn’t call it a comeback — after all, Kamali was the first designer to create an online store on eBay, and she showed her branding savvy with a collection for Wal-Mart in 2008. With Kamali Kulture, however, the designer who made shoulder pads famous is really bringing her game up into the 21st century. A collection of simple shapes in black, red, and pin stripe, Kamali Kulture looks perfect for a modern woman’s workday uniform. The collection stays true to the designer’s use of clean lines and multifunctional pieces (her All In One Dress was created in 1974 and still looks fresh today), and every item is a potential wardrobe staple. Prices range from $55 for a Long Sleeve Crewneck Tee to $96 for dresses, including the All In One.
