3.1 Phillip Lim for Target is totally a thing and is totally happening and coming to a Target store near you! This will be another popular designer collaboration for Target especially since this line will feature clothes and accessories for men and women. The prices range from $19.99 to $299.99 for apparel and $19.99 to $59.99 for accessories. I can’t wait to see what will be available.The collection debuts stores and online September. Right in time for fashion week, non?
Masion Martin Margiela is the next designer to collaborate with H & M. This is super duper exciting! The collection for men and women will come out on November 15, 2012 and will be released online and at 230 stores. I can’t wait!!!!! Check out this teaser video below.
I am really digging the new designer collaborations at Target. The Shops at Target have special items from different boutiques around the country. The Webster in Miami is the boutique that brought their cute clothes to Target, and they havePLUS SIZES!!! While the whole collection isn’t plus size, their are quite a few plus size options to choose from. I put my four favorite options below, but also check here for more options. Photos from Target.
Jason Wu is the next designer for the big box chain Target. Here’s to hoping Michelle Obama’s favorite designer’s collection for Target won’t have any mishaps like the Missoni collection had. They had so many orders, they had to cancel some for lack of merchandise.
My mom and I cannot wait for the Missoni for Target collection. We are super duper excited! I mean who doesn’t love the idea of getting Missoni for less…much less than it normally would cost you? This video shows you some of the cool items up for sale. September 13th can’t come soon enough.
Model Coco Rocha gives us a behind the scenes look at the new Karl Lagerfeld for Macy’s collection that is due in store on August 31. I can’t wait for this collection. It looks like it will be amazing. Coco looks so good modelling the collection in Lagerfeld’s person home studio.
If Karl Lagerfeld isn’t your thing, it has just been announced, on WWD, that Giambattista Valli will be the next Macy’s designer collaborator starting on October 26.
That great Italian label Missoni is coming to a Target near you on September 13th. This will be the biggest designer collaboration for the discount chain with over 400 pieces of clothing, housewear, and accessory items for sale. I, for one, cannot wait to see this collection. I mean who doesn’t want a little piece of Missoni at discount prices. What do you think about Missoni at Target? Are you excited? Photo from Style.com.
Target has awesome news for fans of their Go International line of designer collaborations. To celebrate the fifth anniversary of the Go International Collection they are bringing back your favorite pieces with a greatest hits type collection. I am so excited for this. I can’t wait to see which pieces they bring back. Which designers/pieces are you excited for? Check out more information below. Photo From The Smart Stylist.
To celebrate its fifth year of supporting industry-leading designers, Target announces the GO International Designer Collective, a collection of 34 dresses from 17 previously featured GO International designers. The collection includes signature dresses from Luella Bartley, Tara Jarmon, Paul & Joe, Behnaz Sarafpour, Proenza Schouler, Libertine, Alice Temperley, Erin Fetherston, Jovovich-Hawk, Rogan, Richard Chai, Jonathan Saunders, Thakoon, Tracy Feith, Rodarte, Zac Posen and Tucker. The exclusive designer styles were originally created for the Target GO International program and will be available March 13, 2011 through April 10, 2011 at most Target stores and online at Target.com. The GO International Designer Collective underscores Target’s ongoing commitment to fashion talent and the belief that everyone deserves great design at an affordable price.
Finally Macy’s is taking a stab at fast fashion. It has worked for Target, H & M, and countless other brands in the past decade. I think it is about time, and I can’t wait. Just like Target, Macy’s will have a series of designer lines. When one designer is done, the new one will begin selling their wares. Kinder Aggugini, big in London but not here…yet, will be the first designer. I can’t wait to see what he will bring to Macy’s. This is all very exciting!
From The New York Times:
The collection for Macy’s, which will be sold at about 250 locations, will cost $50 to $300 and is targeted toward younger customers who shop in its Impulse departments. “This customer loves to shop,” said Jeff Gennette, the chief merchandising officer of Macy’s. “She wants to be in our store all the time, and we’d better be interesting.”
Is the secret finally out? WWD seems to think they know who H&M is going to collaborate with next. When I showed you the videos, I was stumped. There are men and women in the videos, and they all say really cryptic and unique things. WWD seems to think that the quotes are from none other then Alber Elbaz, Lanvin’s designer.
While the camera never lingers on the faces long enough for recognition in the clips, the voice-over of designer musings, while electronically altered, are unmistakable Elbaz-isms. “Design is very important because it actually brings dream to our life,” says one.
H & M are coming out with some more designer collaborations, but they are a secret? You won’t be able to find out until September 9th! They do have these sneaky videos to tease you, but I can’t really think of who it would be. One does kind of look like Daphne Guinness to me, but I doubt it.
Target has really gone designer collaboration crazy! Coming up in the next few months are the collections by Zac Posen and Jean Paul Gaultier. Out of these collections, I love the JPG one the best. The trench coat and motorcycle jackets are tresmazing! Zac Posen’s line looks good if you are into that thing. I like Zac Posen, but his collection looks like a mix and match of things, more mix/matchy than usual. Photos from Refinery29 and Fashionista.com.
From Refinery29: Yesterday’s camera-phone sneak peek of the Jean Paul Gaultier for Target collection led us to our receiving the actual lookbook. The original editorial from Elle—not Vogue—played a few tricks on us. There’s no lace paneling, no sheer-topped dresses, there’s a big cartoon anchor on that striped top, and that $40 trench is actually $59.99 (still affordable for just how adorable it is). But what can we expect when the line drops on March 7th? A hodgepodge of styles, really. At times the looks can look sweet, ranging from prim floral A-line skirts to bustier tops with a chipper, sailor’s neckline. But other times the looks can be positively head-scratching. The last time pin stripes and “tattoo-print” dresses appeared on our monitors was when we were watching old episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer on Hulu. Prices range from $17.99 for swimsuit separates to $199 for those sick leather jackets. Click through for all the looks!
From Fashionista.com: If yesterday’s blurry Gaultier for Target image left you unsatisfied, here’s the complete Zac Posen for Target lookbook.
The collection’s 100% Zac, made for a woman who likes to dress up, but might not have a red carpet to walk every other week.
It’s mostly dresses, highlights include a sleeveless floral mini with a massive side bow ($74), a well-cut purple polka-dot number with thick seams ($39), and the long printed gown at left ($69).
Swimsuits come in gold lame ($40) and tie dye (so do tees), skirts are basic black in flouncy cuts ($40) and Zac’s even included a slim black suit ($90).
You’ll have to wait until April 25th to buy it, but click through to see the whole collection.
This collaboration between Target and Rodarte was so hyped up it was crazy. They even had a video featuring Tavi and other fashion insiders praising the collection. The pictures were styled so beautifully, but I walked into my store yesterday and was shocked that our store decided to carry it and shocked that it was made so poorly. Before you say “it’s Target”, other designer collab collection production seemed much better than I thought it would be for many of the other collections. I know people, including myself, who still wear items from four years ago. This collection while cute in theory will probably not last four years if you wore it out once a year and washed it in baby detergent. Sorry to say that, but I was sorely disappointed. Don’t let my critique scare you off. Go check it out and see if your store hasn’t sold out of certain pieces. I have already heard tales of pieces being sold out. I know my store didn’t have some items and it was picked over.
I am so excited for this new collaboration. MNG by Mango is going to be sold at JC Penney’s. This is great for people who don’t live in a big city and can’t experience Mango. JCP’s has been doing a great job with American Living aka another Ralph Lauren side project, Charlotte Ronson’s I Heart Ronson, and the mini Sephora stores. I also forgot to mention a month ago that Mary-Kate and Ashlely Olsen’s new JCP’s line Olsenboye, is in stores now. So don’t forget to check that out.
Jimmy Choo for H&M; is almost upon us. The limited edition collection enters stores on November 14th, so you have a few more days to save up some funds. The collection features shoes, accesories, bags, and clothes for men and women. Everything looks like something you would expect from Jimmy Choo, sexy,short, high, and tight. My nearest H&M; is 3 hours away, so I can forget about buying some discounted Jimmy Choos (insert sad face here). Hopefully you guys will have better luck.
