Karl Lagerfeld Teams Up With Macy’s?!

Love Karl Lagerfeld’s designs, but can’t actually afford Chanel or one of his eponymous collections? Well, you’re in luck because Uncle Karl is going to release a collection just for Macy’s. Yep, you read that right. Karl Lagerfeld plus Macy’s equals a mass collection that will include jeans, party dresses, and everything in between. The collection is slated for a 2011 release. This collaboration is quite shocking as Lagerfeld doesn’t seem like the type of person to even walk into a Macy’s. [Fashionista] Keep reading »

Do Knock-Offs And Designer Collabs Give You The “Must Have It” Syndrome?

We all know the feeling of fashion obsession. And often, it comes in the form of something very, very expensive. But has the retail industry succeeded in driving our obsessions to lower-priced goods? With the wave of decent knock-off chains supplying our closets (thank you, Zara and Forever 21), and exclusive designer collaborations, are we now falling prey to a different kind of must-have mentality? This week, one shopping-crazed woman wrote in The New York Times that she’s what you might call a chaser — and a fierce one at that. Keep reading »

Target Is Partnering With Gilt Groupe — Sales Start Tomorrow!

You know how Target tries to make its designer collaborations seem exclusive, but oftentimes only one or two pieces from a given collection are drool-worthy? Well, the super retailer is trying even harder to sell you on the idea that these collaborations offer “luxury” items at an affordable price. Target is partnering with Gilt Groupe, an online shopping site that offers discounts on designer brands, to offer the designer collections before the garments hit Target stores. Keep reading »

Justin Timberlake’s William Rast Teams With Target

Having perused the men’s section at Target a few times, I’ve come to the conclusion that male shoppers of the retailer like their clothes boring and tame. Khakis, striped polos, and cargo pants abound. The section is nothing like the women’s department, where Target has figured out how to cater to the soccer moms and cheerleaders, while also offering avant garde designer wear for the style geek on a budget. Target’s collaboration with Justin Timberlake‘s William Rast will take the men’s department and women’s to the next level, though. William Rast, which Justin founded with his friend Trace Ayala, is known for its biker-influenced clothes and jeans. The label offers a rock star edge that also has that laid-back L.A. vibe, so it will be interesting how this attitude translates for the Target customer. At least on Dec. 19, when the collaboration collection premieres, Target will have more than a graphic T-shirt to offer to their fashion forward male customers. And I might finally be able to get a William Rast leather jacket, which normally retails for almost $400. [WWD] Keep reading »

First Look: Target X Harlem

Just when you thought the designs from Target’s designer collaborations were becoming both boring and too outrageous, Target teams up with Isabel and Ruben Toledo and Stephen Burrows for the collection Target X Harlem. The mega-retailer seems to have been influenced by the neighborhood of one of its newest stores, which is set to open July 25 on 116th Street in Harlem. Besides the super saturated and bright colors, which I’m guessing are a nod to the diverse ethnicities of Harlem, I don’t see much of the neighborhood’s flavor. However, I do love quite a few of the pieces, especially the swimsuit ($34.99) and towel ($24.99) by Isabel and Ruben Toledo and the sexy summertime dress ($34.99) by Stephen Burrows above. The collection hits the Harlem Target first on July 25 and the Target website and select stores on Aug. 1. So you have just enough time to get your money’s worth between then and Labor Day.
