Five Designer Collabs That Should Be on Your Radar
From Jason Wu's catty capsule collection to Dita Von Teese's Aussie undies, the promise of fashion and frivolity brings out a giddiness (and competitiveness) over less pricey designer items that we want and things we must have or else.

5. Pamela Love for J. Crew
We already gave you the lowdown on Joseph Altuzarra's J. Crew capsule collection (a wearable love letter to timeless Parisian style). Next come the designs from Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund runner-up Pamela Love, who's three-piece distressed denim and leather line is out Thursday, May 17. In the event that you cannot chance missing out on the jewelry designer's first foray into clothes, give the shop a buzz at 800-261-7422 and you can pre-order your little heart out.

Due Tuesday, May 15, Best Coast's fashion-obsessed frontwoman will launch a 12-piece line of Stevie Nicks-esque separates with crop tops, onesies, and shorts (that apparently also were inspired by Clueless and The Craft) through Urbs' in-house label, Urban Renewal.
Although it's Cosentino's first proper line, she did study fashion before breaking out as a musician. But that doesn't mean she's moving away from confessional pop music.
The new Best Coast album, The Only Place, will be released the same day as the line. That means chances are good that hear it while browsing the racks at Urban -- talk about synergy.
