ANTHROPOLOGIE’S NEW TIE-UP: Anthropologie is on a roll with the young designer partnerships. On the heels of a collection with Ruffian’s Brian Wolk and Claude Morais, the company is set to debut a collaboration with L.A.-based designer Koi Suwannagate later this month. Named Lawan after the Thai word for “beautiful,” the four-style lineup is Suwannagate’s first stab at a secondary collection. “We had so many requests for pieces with a more affordable price point,” explained Suwannagate. “But we make everything in-house and it would have been too expensive for us. Working with Anthropologie was a natural fit.” The Lawan collection, which retails from $228 to $298, will feature a gown, two cardigans and a sleeveless top, all cut from wool blends and embellished with the designer’s signature frothy, hand-sculpted appliqués. “Each of them represents my past bestsellers,” said Suwannagate, adding the collaboration will be an ongoing one.
