Start singing and dancing, everyone, because American Idol is coming to a Kohl’s near you. The retailer announced that its junior and young men’s departments will be debuting an American Idol collection with a new line called “Authentic Icon”. Slick name (A.I., A.I. — get it?), but the clothes? Not so much.
We’ve actually been keeping up with the show this season, since one of the contestants is a friend (Heejun Han, vote for him!), so we were hoping to see some preppy bowties for the guys and lots of sequins for the girl. Instead, the collection is a boring mix of Americana and rock and roll, like red and white stripes and off-the-shoulder tees.
The collection will be in stores and online from April 20 through July. But we can’t imagine a frenzy, so walk, don’t run.
