Viewers of Project Runway's early seasons will remember Kenley Collins. The finalist, who host Tim Gunn has described as "belligerent," has gone through a few very public ups and downs since her television debut, including one weird spat with her ex fiance during which she hurled a cat, a laptop, several apples and water at him. These days, though, it seems like Collins is moving on from her reputation as a reality TV firebrand, designing her own label and singing in a band called Jetblack Bullseye. She's also landed a collaboration deal: It was announced today that the designer has created a two-piece look for retro-styled Burbank label Unique Vintage.
Kenley Collins for Unique Vintage will launch this May at Unique Vintage boutiques in Burbank, Valencia and Huntington Beach as well as online. The cotton crop top and swing skirt, pictured above, will retail for $136. You can pre-order the set now right here.
