Ivanka Trump Debuts at Lord & Taylor

By ManhattanMataHari

We have always admired Ivanka Trump’s classic and sophisticated sense of style, especially when contrasted against the likes of other heiress-turned entrepreneurs. Our pure sense of curiosity pulled us to Lord & Taylor to check out the debut of her ready-to-wear collection.

Despite the fact that Lord & Taylor leans to a more mature crowed, we were hoping that this clothing line would breath a bit of sophisticated youth into the 185-year-old department store. Unfortunately, the collection was a bit more matronly than we would have hoped and contained too many prints to be considered a must-have classic.



Nonetheless there were a several worthy items. Our favorite picks are the pink pleated cotton Audrina skirt ($145), the double-layered Betta dress ($155) and Trump’s structured take on the classic black pencil skirt ($125). Ivanka’s traditional trench coats and colorful safari-style dresses are spring and summer staples.

Ivanka’s collection is priced quite reasonably and ranges from $50 to $225. With Lord & Taylor’s frequent sales and promotions, this means you can look forward to snagging most items for 20% to 50% less during sales time. Unlike many other celebrity clothing lines, Ivanka’s collection seems to reflect her signature aesthetic. We can easily see pieces fitting into her busy lifestyle and we can likely use a few items too.

Those who share or curiosity can meet Ivanka in person and receive a signed sketch with any Ivanka Trump purchase at tonight’s L&T launch event. Best of all 10% of the launch’s proceeds will benefit the United Nations Foundation’s Girl Up Campaign.
