Narciso Rodriguez, the New York-based designer famous for his streamlined, muted designs, is launching a separate -- and much lower-priced -- collection for online marketplace EBay.

Starting Monday at 9 a.m. Pacific time, the Narciso Rodriguez for EBay collection will be available through a specially branded store on the website. Prices will range from $65 to $350.

From the sketches the company sent us, it looks to be an American sportswear-inspired line of dresses and separates that employ Rodriguez' trademark body-friendliness. 

There's a smoky blue daytime "suit" comprised of a boxy, short-sleeved jacket and pencil skirt (above, left); at least two form-fitting black dresses with a diagonal swipe of contrasting color near the collarbone -- one white, one red (above, right); a belted trench; and an Empire-waist black party dress with a scoop neck and flouncy skirt. 

It all looks classic Narciso -- wearable, flattering and uncomplicated. Perfect for these convoluted times.
