NEW YORK, NY – August 8, 2017 – Macy’s today announced the release of KOBI, a limited-time collection created for Macy’s by contemporary designer Kobi Halperin, whose eponymous line has caught the fashion world by storm with its crafted artisan details and modern femininity. Imbued with soft silhouettes and intricate embellishments, the collection created for Macy’s officially available in stores and online Aug. 15 inspires women to celebrate getting dressed every day.

 “The best part about being a designer is seeing the customer try on a piece and watching her body language completely change,” said Halperin. “I love how my collection has the ability to bring out both confidence and femininity, and I am excited to be able to share that with the Macy’s customer with this capsule collection I designed exclusively for them.”

The KOBI collection emanates a European sensibility that fosters a soignée approach to dressing. Elaborate lace adorns chic off-the-shoulder tops and elegantly cut blouses. Sweeping cape sweaters, a statement shawl-collar coat, bell-sleeve jackets, and expertly tailored blazers are rendered in luxurious textiles to magnificent effect. Skillfully draped dresses and a perfectly fitted jumpsuit skim the body and accentuate the waist without being overly body conscious for an easy sophistication that is head-turning in its subtlety. Beautifully tailored pants round out the KOBI collection, and they receive the breathtaking treatments that are the sui generis hallmarks of the line. The collection boasts a rich color palette comprised of Bordeaux, navy and black with pops of periwinkle, white and a cerebral print that adds depth.

“The KOBI collection embodies the bespoke-level attention to detail Kobi Halperin has become known for,” said Cassandra Jones, senior vice president of Macy’s fashion. “Every piece in the collection is incredibly special and serves to elevate the wearer and her wardrobe. The heart of this collection lies in making aspirational style accessible, and Kobi Halperin has delivered that to our customer in spades.”

Available on Macy’s mobile app and macys.com, the KOBI collection ranges from $79 to $299, and will officially launch in 149 Macy’s stores August 15.
