New Details About Lauren Conrad's Upcoming Collection!

[tiImage width=”300″ height=”400″ url=”” credit=”Jordan Strauss/WireImage” align=”right” border=”1″ alt=”Lauren Conrad”]

Lauren Conrad announced plans to launch a contemporary clothing line with her friends late last summer, and now she’s hard at work on the collection. “It’s doing really well,” she told us last night at the CoverGirl party in Los Angeles. “It’s a lot of masculine and feminine put together. We did some really great woven kind of suitings. My favorite piece is a tiered chiffon maxi. It’s just so romantic and I love it.” She also said her new line reflects her growth as a designer. “I pay a lot more attention to fit,” Conrad told us. “It’s become more important, especially as I’ve learned about the process, like how off-the-rack clothing isn’t meant to fit every body, and how it’s so important to take your things to a tailor and have little things altered.” We can’t wait to see the whole collection when it debuts in the coming months!

Julie Chaiken on Relaunching Chaiken and Capone

Relaunch alert! Chaiken and Capone, a label known for its tailored pants, is coming back. So, why now? Call it good timing. “As denim’s dominance over the market has begun to fade, I found this the perfect time to come in with the perfect pant,” designer Julie Chaiken (inset) told us when we caught up with her today. Chaiken, who bought out partner Pamela Capone in 1998 and had stopped using the name Chaiken and Capone, will relaunch the label with Bermuda shorts, blazers, skirts, dresses and pants (left). “The line has grown and evolved, but it is generally still speaking to the same customer,” she said. “And I have expanded the scope of the design to fit a bit of a broader audience.” That means you can expect to see some of her classics, only reworked with new fits, both tight and loose. Check out the revived Chaiken and Capone when it hits Barney’s Co-op and Cusp stores next month.
