Lenox announced this week a partnership with fashion brand Donna Karan to create a tabletop and giftware collection.
The collection will include porcelain and stoneware dinnerware, serving pieces, crystal glassware, flatware and an extensive assortment of beautiful giftware crafted from glass, metal, ceramic and wood. The palette is neutral shades highlighted by Donna Karan's signature color – black.
The collection inspired by her heritage of "Seven Easy Pieces" will include details that reflect the spirit of the brand – sophisticated, interchangeable pieces designed to live with you wherever you are.
"There has long been strong demand for tabletop and giftware from Donna Karan. We are very glad to join forces with Lenox to capitalize on it," Mark Weber, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Donna Karan International. "Donna Karan Lenox tabletop is a clear reflection of the functional beauty and style sensibility for which our brand is known and we look forward to bringing it to the market and into consumers' homes."
"As an American company we are privileged to be working with one of America's most iconic fashion designers," said Glenn De Stefano, President of Lenox's Donna Karan Lenox division.
The collection will preview during the New York tabletop show, October 12-15 at FortyOne Madison. The retail launch is planned for February 2011. Retail price points range between $25 to $3,000.
