What a Pair! A Sneak Peek at The Limited’s collaboration with Ranjana Khan

Friday, October 28, 2011

Tuesday night, AVENUEinsider was invited for a first look at Ranjana Khan‘s newest collection.  Pieces that were once restricted to the likes of Michelle Obama and patrons of Bergdorf Goodman will now be released this mid-November for the general public – earrings, necklaces, and bracelets from the designer for a fraction of the price, developed exclusively for The Limited.

The 15 new pieces, now priced between $69 and $120, maintains Khan’s trademark of Indian-influenced embroidered beads, ribbons and colorful stones.

Khan – whose work has been featured by such designers as Alexander McQueen and Jean Paul Gaultier – has entered into the chapter of her career with this collaboration, and what better way to celebrate than with a cocktail bash at her and Naeem Khan‘s gorgeous penthouse studio?  Stylist Amanda Ross and editor Selby Drummond were among those checking out the collection, Valissa Yoe DJ’d, while the revamped Real Housewives cast arrived with their own greatest accessory – a camera crew.

The evening also marked a milestone of sorts for The Limited, as this is their first designer collaboration – with reportedly more in the works.  The craftsmanship and weight of each piece far surpasses what one would expect from a diffusion line, and Ranjana – who owns her own factory in Mumbai – carefully oversees all aspects of production. “You have to take pride in your product, no matter what customer you are creating it for,” Ranjana told AVENUEinsider. Indeed.  Ranjana Khan for The Limited will be available at on November 14, and will hit 38 of The Limited stores by the end of November.
