US department store retailer Macy's has named Doo-Ri Chung as the next fashion designer to take part in the designer capsule collection series for the retailer's contemporary 'Impulse' department.

Now in its second year, the limited edition lines have so far featured Kinder Aggugini, Matthew Williamson, Giambattista Valli and Karl Lagerfeld.

The new 'Doo-Ri for Impulse only at Macy's' collection will include art-inspired prints, jersey pieces mixed with leather, detailed knitwear and draping, priced from $39-$159. They will be sold in around 225 Macy's stores nationwide and online from 15 February.

"Doo-Ri understands what women want to wear and how elements like fabric and silhouette can flatter the body," says Jeff Gennette, Macy's chief merchandising officer. "The collection's balance of ultra-feminine styling and use of print and colour embodies exactly what our customer is looking for when shopping for spring fashion."

Doo-Ri Chung launched her signature collection in 2003, and has since made her mark as one of the next generation of great American designers. A graduate of the Parsons The New School of Design, she worked with Geoffrey Beene for five years and rose to the position of lead designer.

Within a year of launching her eponymous label, Chung was a finalist in the first-ever Council of Fashion Designers of America/Vogue Fashion Fund (CVFF). By 2005, she had been inducted as a member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) and in 2006 won the Samsung Fashion Design Fund Award, CFDA Swarovski/Perry Ellis Award for Emerging Design Talent and the CVFF grand prize.
