April is shaping up to be a collaboration heavy month already and we are only three days into Spring. Slightly late on the gravy train that has proven to be designer exclusives at high street prices is Anthropologie which will be releasing eleven -yeah they are making up for lost time- designs with designers from all over the globe in true Anthro fashion. Not to be outdone by Uncle Karl’s own Sephora line, Marc Jacobs will be debuting Marc Jacobs cosmetics. But what everyone is running around trying to find right this minute is Prabal Gurung’s Spring 2012 prints in the shape of Sally Hansen Salon Effects Polish Strips.

There is no arguing that we love Prabal Gurung and are clearly obsessed with nail art so to hear that the two are making babies with some help from Sally Hansen, well that just made our day. Inspired by two specific prints that came down the runway in New York for Spring 2012, the press-on adhesive strips are officially titled Sweet Marble Floret and Good Morning Glory. They are available at drugstores nationwide and are priced at a glorious, $9.99.

Francisco Costa also made an announcement of his own today, the Brazilian designer who was brave enough to replace Calvin Klein himself ten years ago will be releasing a collection of dresses for Macy’s under the Calvin Klein brand. Stepping away with the typically streamlined and simple Calvin Klein aesthetic the capsule collection will have a Brazilian theme named “A Magical Journey to Brazil.” This goes hand in hand with the Amazonian flower show happening in Macy’s windows right now. The dresses will cost $135 to $180 and will make their debut May 15 at stores nationwide as well as Macys.com.

Move over TOMS, J.Crew has a new set of espadrilles created by Soludos. British designer Nick Brown has been based in New York for some time now and makes the classic shoes with eco-friendly jute soles and cloth uppers that are super comfy, perfect for tired city treading dwellers. The designs come in a limited range of bright hues, solid lemon, white, spearmint, peach plus two red and navy striped ones for your nautical inspired inner Bardot. The shoes are available online and in-store right now and are priced at $35 each.

“I love the opportunity, wherever there is one, to adorn, to decorate, to scent, to dress. That’s what fashion’s all about. It’s not necessary, it’s something you want — it’s a fancy and a whim.” -Marc Jacobs
In an interview with WWD Marc Jacobs revealed the name of his new upcoming fragrance Dot and slipped some much needed info on his first foray into cosmetics. Jacobs said he had his first meeting for the color line last week. “I see makeup, fragrance — everything, really — as an opportunity. The idea of choosing a color for your lip, or an eyeliner — it’s just such a delight. The ritual of waking up and making those choices is something people really enjoy. We currently are working on defining what Marc Jacobs cosmetics will be, what they’ll say, what makes them distinctive. I think that will take some time, but the first meeting was good.”

Made In Kind: A Project In Collaborative Design is Anthropologie’s answer to collaborations but with a cool urban boho-chic twist. The lucky designers include Karen Walker, Gregory Parkinson, John Patrick, Samantha Pleet, Charlotte Linton, Pipit, Rachel Rose and British brand Place Nationale. The price points are typically in-line with other items in the Anthropologie catalog with most dresses in the $120-$300 range. In their press release Anthropologie said Made In Kind will function as a gallery “housing multiple exhibitions per month, each dedicated to a single designer or concept.” You don’t have to wait long though, the “exhibition” will make it’s sartorial debut on April 5th. In the meantime there is a teaser video you can view to get a glimpse of what they have cooking for Thursday’s launch.
