The burly, plaid-wearing pair, whose namesake Costello Tagliapietra label is a favorite of everyone from Madonna to Padma Lakshmi, have created a 14-piece collection of dresses that are emblematic of their successful ready-to-wear line. Each frock will be available in a variety of colorways and (this is where the credit card wielders come in) are priced quite reasonably at $29.50-$39.50.
"Design is inherently about problem-solving and most of the girls we know want designer style at a good price point," Tagliapietra told StyleList. "We did treat this like one of our other collections."
"Your name is on it so you have to treat it with the same level of respect. It still came from our hand."
Fashion's favorite lumberjack lookalikes are known for their subtle draping and flattering folds inspired by the likes of Madame Grès and Vionnet, and we expect this offering is no exception.
The dresses have been created in a variety of CT-friendly hues, but don't expect to see their trademark check pattern. "No prints yet," says Tagliapietra. "We're so bad. We've so inundated with plaid in our daily life."
