ISAIA LINKS WITH JEFFREY: Only the mash-up masters at H&M boast more collaborations than retailer/fashion impresario Jeffrey Kalinksy. His latest conquest: Italian luxe brand Isaia, whose tailored clothing served as the basis for a limited collection of attenuated suits and furnishings. Aimed at introducing Isaia to the fashion customer, the special edition wool suits, cotton shirts and silk ties hit Jeffrey stores this week. Suits start at $2,995 and shirts are $495. The association is for one season but may be extended, according to Isaia.
