While designer collaborations may be going the way of the dodo, there’s one upcoming high-low match-up that’s so surprising that it’s enough to keep us interested — excited, even: Duro Olowu’s printed and perky Spring 2013 collection for J.C. Penney.

The London-based, Nigerian-born designer teamed up with the recently revamped retailer for the store’s first-ever foray into the capsule collection phenomenon. The resulting 20-look collection hits stores in March, featuring affordable takes on the designer’s famous mixed prints for $10 to $100. The line is in keeping with the flattering-meets-fun aesthetic that has won the designer fans like Michelle Obama — so expect bright brocade pencil skirts, ladylike twinsets, and flirty, flowy printed dresses, plus vases, platters, and rugs for the home.

If the collection’s prices weren’t enough of a reason to go cockoo for Olowu, the collection also features the work of two of the designer’s famous friends: artist Bella Foster and icon Iris Apfel, who designed the prints and accessories, respectively. It’s enough to have us thinking spring despite December’s gray weather.
