Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony will go ahead with their joint fashion line despite their recent split.

The couple - who announced their separation last week - have signed a deal to create a clothing and accessories line for Kohl's with Tommy Hilfiger which will launch in September and although their designs were set to be a collaborative effort, Jennifer will now work on the women's collection while Marc will work on the menswear.

A spokesperson told WWD: "The Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony brands have always been positioned as two separate, distinctive collections that offer high-quality contemporary style for men and women, and we look forward to a successful September launch."

Rick Darling, of LF USA, which sub-licenses the singers' brands to Kohl's, added: "We have two separate agreements with Jennifer and Marc and always intended to have separate lines. [Their split] doesn't impact the agreements in any way."

Although Jennifer's first fashion collaboration Sweetface with Tommy's brother Andy Hilfiger was a failure, he believes this will be a success because the singer has more control.

Tommy said: "The difference this time around is that Jennifer is fully engaged with a company that is professionally staffed to really develop anything she wants, from towels to knee-high Suede boots. Literally, her wish is their command."
