NEW YORK, Aug 1, 2011/ — Famed Gossip Girl costume designer, Eric Daman, has partnered with DKNY on a capsule collection of Fall 2011 hosiery hitting stores in August.
Comprised of eight uniquely patterned tights, the selection is reflective of the DKNY legwear often worn by the female characters on the show and Eric’s styling sensibility.
“Hosiery is a fabulous accessory and truly makes a woman’s outfit,” says Eric Daman. “Having used DKNY legwear so often on Gossip Girl, it seemed completely natural for me to collaborate with a brand I love to work with.”
DKNY hosiery has been one of the main legwear selections of choice since the show’s inception. It’s been worn by multiple cast members, was cause for multiple DKNY hosiery on-air promotions during Gossip Girl on PIX 11 and is often the topic of conversation on DKNY PR Girl’s weekly Twitter party. “The concept for this collaboration with Eric Daman was completely organic,” says Cathy Volker, Executive Vice President of Donna Karan International. “Eric’s keen eye for style coupled with his passion for chic legwear makes him an ideal partner for DKNY hosiery.”
The packaging, which includes artwork by Dallas Shaw, is unique to this capsule collection of hosiery and pays homage to Eric’s and DKNY’s, New York City roots. The collection will be available for purchase this August at Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom, DKNY and DKNY.com ranging from $15 to $24.
