First Look: United Bamboo for Madewell, the Full Collection

August 20, 2012

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.
