Target Brings Us The Designer Collaboration To End All Designer Collaborations

I’ve publicly voiced my lukewarm feelings on designer department store collaborations in the past, but this latest one may have just the right elements to make a convert out of a non-believer like me. As far as fast fashion goes, Target isn’t the first superstore that springs to mind, despite Missoni and Jason Wu to…

Beauty Test Drive: Target PixiGlow Fairy Dust Highlighter

Highlighter is makeup that sounds like it was invented by the beauty industry just to sell you more crap that you don’t need. But at least for me, once I started using a highlighter from MAC, I wondered how I lived without it. Target’s new PixiGlow Fairy Dust Highlighter  is a great new budget-friendly highlighter that…

Greedy Jerks Like These Are The Reason You Couldn’t Buy Jason Wu For Target This Weekend

Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away, I used to be quite the vintage clothing huntress. Finding a kickass sale with a few good finds in my size gave me an unbelievable cheap thrill.  Every weekend, I’d wake up early and drive to whatever estate sale promised a cache of clothing. One…

Beauty Test Drive: Target PixiGlow Fairy Face Palette

Looking pretty is all about light in the right places: that is the philosophy behind Pixi’s new PixiGlow-inspired line for Target.

And it’s a philosophy they’ve fulfilled more than admirably. I actually love their Fairy Face Palette so much that I’ve used it daily since December and I’m already fretting about whether I’ll…

Dita Von Teese Designing A Lingerie Collection For Target

A lot of celebrity collaborations are ridiculous to the point of insulting (the one by Twilight‘s Kellan Lutz springs to mind) but, if we were to imagine a celebrity-designed collection that actually made sense, Dita von Teese doing lingerie wouldn’t be far off. The burlesque superstar designed a 26 piece capsule collection for Target Australia, to hit stores early February (pre-Valentine’s Day).

Let’s Obsess Over Jason Wu For Target

UPDATE: Squee! It’s here! Every single piece from the Jason Wu for Target lookbook is online, so I’ve updated the slideshow. Donations for the “Jessica Wants Every Item In The Jason Wu For Target Collection” now being accepted. 

I know what I’m doing at 6 a.m. on February 5: elbowing any bitch that…

…And A Sparkly New Year!

Don’t let sparkles be just for New Year’s Eve. Bat your eyes all year long with Sonia Kashuk for Target’s “Pretty In Pink” eye palette. The powders are metallic, but not glittery, in pinkish hues that scream “pretty,” not “drag queen.” (Not that there’s anything wrong with drag queens! It’s just not an office look…

Sneak Peak: Jason Wu for Target

Jason Wu is the guy responsible for designing Michelle Obama’s inaugural dress. He’s also the latest designer to score a diffusion line with Target. And while it won’t launch for another five months (mark February 5, 2012 in your iCals now), we’ve got a sneak peak. Will it be as big as the Missoni line?

Michelle Obama Stocks Up At Target

The First Lady was spotted on a bit of a shopping spree at Target this week. I honestly did not realize she could just waltz into Tar-jay like any ol’ bargain-seeker; does the Secret Service have to do a sweep of the store first? Also, I wonder if she’s got any Missoni in those bags… [Buzzfeed]…

David Beckham Puts On Disguise, Peddles Cologne At Target

Man, I love it when Ellen DeGeneres plays prank Cyrano de Bergerac and has celebrities do something outrageous to unsuspecting bystanders while she counsels them on what to say via earpiece. In this clip, David Beckham heads to Target undercover to peddle his new cologne. She has him spray it on his leg so…

Missoni Crashed Target’s Website

Thinking about buying something from Missoni’s extensive line for Target? Good luck with that. Thanks to the high volume of users trying to get their grubby mitts on the collection, Target’s site is currently offline. If you go to the site right now, you’ll receive a message that “We are hard at work making the…

Behold! Missoni’s Target Line Is Here!

Well, almost: Designer Missoni’s diffusion line for Target is just around the bend, and the first shots of the collection have begun eeking out. Here we have pieces from both the apparel and travel collections on display in Missoni’s signature colorful patterns. The collection will include around 400 items, including men’s and women’s clothing, accessories,…

Designer-Inspired Stacked Heels At A Pauper’s Price

Take a good look at this shoe. It is reminiscent of a number of different designer heels currently being featured in magazines and sold at expensive retailers like Bloomingdale’s and Shopbop. Amazingly, however, these stacked heeled sandals — which would look so cute with everything from skinny jeans to a floaty sundress — are from…

Nesting: I’m Back, Baby! Check Out How I’ve Decorated My New Bedroom

It took three months, 612 moving boxes (or thereabouts), and the very last smidgen of my sanity, but this weekend I moved out of my parents’ house (where I’d been staying after a bad breakup) and back to New York City in a “single girl” apartment again.

I’m baaaaaaaack, bitches!

However,…

First Look: William Rast For Target

Target’s latest collaboration is out. The tomboyish denim line William Rast created men’s and women’s looks for the retailer, and to be honest? Yawn. Except we can’t help checking it out simply because Justin Timberlake helped launch William Rast, and since that man has a knack for making anything sexy …

Is Re-Releasing Collections Lazy Or Awesome?

So it would seem that the biggest trend in retailing since the designer collaboration is the re-release. In the past few weeks we’ve heard of three major brands doing replays of past collections. Target is coming out with a “greatest hits” range from previous Go International lines while Marni and Marc by Marc Jacobs have…

Target To Replay Classics From Go International Collections

Collab crazy? Then you’ll be happy to hear that Target is reproducing looks from past Go International collections this February. The line will be a mix of the best designer collaborations including Rodarte, Luella Bartley, Rogan, Libertine, Rogan, Richard Chai, and Proenza Schouler (and more, apparently!). So … which Target collection was your favorite? Anything…

Australians: Mind Sending Us A Stella McCartney For Target Care Package?

Way back in the day when mass retailer and designer collaborations were merely a fledgling idea—well, 2005, specifically—Stella McCartney designed a line for H&M. Since then, we’ve been waiting for the moment of Stella’s return to the mass spotlight. Turns out the British designer is doing a collab (hooray!), but she’s doing it in Australia…

Get The Look: In The Navy

With all of the trends that last five whole seconds, it’s nice to see a designer working with classic color and creating something totally fresh. Giorgio Armani’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection was a sea of navy in many different shades and textures. He mixed chiffon and lace with patent leather, crochet, satin and twill. It i…
