Though the line has been tweaked (the designers admitted that they "weren’t the best patternmakers"), the collection to be sold at Barneys is expected to contain 19 pieces (8 more thatn the original) ranging between $850 and $5,650.

“They don’t look like they’re from 10 years ago, right?” McCollough asked WWD. Considering how way ahead of their time these two are, it's hard to imagine any of their designs becoming outdated!
