We may currently be in the midst of a very cold winter season, but spring fashion lines are already emerging. You don't want to wait until it's already sunbathing time before you consider your warm weather wardrobe, do you? Lucky for those of us in need of spring gear (and a few of us missing George Kotsiopoulos's commentary on Fashion Police), this year we'll be able to get affordable clothes from a certified style expert we've been fans of for years: George Kotsiopoulos designed his first collection, for QVC, this spring. Though Kotsiopoulos has dressed famous faces on the red carpet and styled campaigns for Gap and other companies, this is the first time he's created clothing of his own.
His line, GK George Kotsiopoulos for QVC, could be one of the reasons why George chose not to return for Fashion Police's fourth season, which premiered after the Golden Globes. He'll certainly be busy promoting the collection and, hopefully, working on a follow-up. So, what does Kotsiopoulos think we all should be wearing this spring? For now, QVC only has four pieces available (you can see a few more on the stylist's Instagram). It looks like Kotsiopoulos is focusing on basics with subtle, surprising details. The fact that each item is available for between $40 and $70 is pretty awesome. I'm not exactly looking to break the bank this spring to look on point.
Let's take a look at the collection:
Black and white is a big theme for Kotsiopoulos this year (though versions of some of his looks are available in other colors), and you can find the printed dress on the right on QVC's site now. As you can see, the collection plays with a mix of hard and soft elements, like the slightly flared, sweet dress that Kotsiopoulos paired with a studded leather/knit jacket and leather booties.
The collection also features sleek, clean lines, like the jumpsuit on the left. The jumpsuit's print and its belted waist makes it wearable for women with a range of body types.
GK George Kotsiopoulos for QVC also includes more tailored looks, like this cream pencil skirt. The pieces available to buy now, however, are more casual tops, like a t-shirt with removable cape detail, and the romantic printed top you can peaking out of the model's jacket on the right.
Unlike many celeb designers' creations, all these looks are actually wearable, even if you're not blessed with a model's proportions. As Women's Wear Daily reported, "He outfitted his 73-year-old mother, middle-aged sister and 21-year-old niece all in the same bomber jacket from his collection, which is available in sizes 0 to 28." A designer who make clothes that are beautiful, affordable, and look good on everyone? Looks like Kotsiopoulos is one to watch this year.
