Activist Hippies Invade Target

Just because hippies live in houses made of hemp and are ignorant in the ways of modern hair removal doesn’t mean they’re clueless about technology. After finding out that Target had donated money to the campaign of Minnesota governor candidate Tom Emmer, who is anti-gay marriage and anti-abortion, a group of activists stormed a…

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,…

First Look: Tucker For Target

What to shop come September: Target’s latest collaboration with Gaby Basora’s line, Tucker. Tucker has been around for a few years now, and is known best for its signature flowy silk blouses adorned with vintage-inspired floral prints, which you’ll find in high end stores like Barneys (meaning we don’t actually own anything by Tucker). O…

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…

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 ope…

Does Nina Garcia’s New Target Affiliation Make You Respect Her More Or Less?

Nina Garcia of Project Runway, Elle, and Marie Claire fame has signed on to be Target’s “fashion expert.” The role will mean more videos for Target’s website and StyleBoutique blog, repping new developments for Target brands like Mossimo, and offering tips and tricks for making the most of the store’s budget clothes. This is a…

Is Target Knocking Off TOMS Shoes?

I’ve been wanting to buy a pair of TOMS shoes for a while … but not from Target. Browsing the shoe department at Tar-jay this weekend, I noticed a cute pair of navy-and-white striped canvas loafers with a straight cut across the top of the foot. Very nautical, very Connecticut. One problem: they look a…

Isabel Toledo Swimwear For Target Is Too Cute!

Unlike Michelle Obama, you’ll probably never wear an outfit by Isabel Toledo while watching your husband be inaugurated as president. But Tar-jay looks out for us little people! Isabel Toledo and her husband, Ruben, have designed a swimwear collection which goes on sale at Target.com on August 1. Five percent of the proceeds from the…

Not A Joke: Cynthia Rowley To Make Designer Diapers

It’s official: Fashion diapers are now a trend. First Huggies came onto the scene with their hipster-fied denim diapers. Now news has just broke that Cynthia Rowley will collaborate with Pampers to design a line of the baby panties, to be sold at Target come mid-July. Her second collab with the mass retailer, this one…

Next Up: Target And Mulberry Collab

Another day, another designer collab. And yet, we never tire of hearing about them. The latest news: Target has tapped Mulberry (known best for its iconic padlock purse, pictured) to do a line of handbags, due in U.S. stores Oct. 10. This is good news for the collaboration business because Mulberry is a standard luxury…

I Survived The Cynthia Vincent For Target Debut

I’m not really one to wait in line for hours in the hopes of spending money on so-and-so’s designer collaboration. One, I don’t really enjoy owning something that thousands of other women own too. Two, why should I wait in line to spend my money? Three, the construction of most designer/retail chain items is really…

J.Crew’s Jenna Lyons On Why It’s OK To Miss Out On Designer Collabs

We’ve been a little bummed that we’re not obsessive enough to stay up all night in order to score pieces from Target’s recent designer collaborations, but J.Crew creative director Jenna Lyons puts things in perspective. In an interview with Style.com, Jenna shared how she feels about designers doing “affordable” lines for mass retailers:

“What…

Plenty Of “Lesbian Prom” Wear At Target Thanks To Zac Posen

Teen Vogue (via Shine) posted a preview of Zac Posen’s Target collection and asked the designer the usual “What was your inspiration?” question. His answer was surprising enough to get the interview picked up on a whole bunch of blogs today:

“Lesbian proms have been such a big thing in the news lately. Rather…

Jean Paul Gaultier’s Line For Target Debuted, Sold Out

Jean Paul Gaultier’s collection for Target arrived today yesterday, but if you didn’t stay up all night, endlessly refreshing Target.com, or make an early morning trip to the store, you probably missed out. That’s because most of the JPG for Target clothes were gone before 9 a.m. on Monday morning.

I thought the point…

Sneak Peek: Liberty Of London For Target

When we heard that iconic Brit luxury label Liberty of London was set to bring its prints-mad aesthetic to Target we had to try and keep ourselves from stalking the website in anticipation. Well, imagine the freak-out we had when photos of the fashion and home line started appearing on various websites (OMFG, there’s a…

Target Names Their New Designer, But Who Is Tucker?

In the past, Target has hired big-name fashion designers like Erin Fetherston, Jean Paul Gaultier, Sonia Rykiel, and Proenza Schouler for its famous Go collabs. But yesterday, when the superstore announced their newest Go International designer, more than a few people were left going, “Who?” Fair enough, Tucker by Gaby Basora, isn’t exactly a household…

Ooh, Snap: Did Target Copy Itself?

Up top there, a belt (a kind of ugly one at that) from the Rodarte Target collection. Down below, a Sonia Kashuk duffle bag, also manufactured by Target. Hmm … those two look pretty gosh-darn similar in terms of material. Remarked the Racked reporter, who posted the pics, the Kashuk bag “in terms of how…

Rodarte For Target Already Mostly Sold Out Online

The much-hyped Rodarte for Target collection finally launched — and sold out — yesterday. By mid-day, almost every style was gone online, the good ones having disappeared in the wee hours of the morning. People were already marking up and selling Rodarte for Target pieces on eBay yesterday morning! Doesn’t that seem a little unfair…

Check Out Tavi’s Rodarte For Target Video

Style blogging wunderkind Tavi just released a fairly adorable and kind of intense video she made to “introduce you to Rodarte.” The video looks at the brand as a whole, the upcoming Target line (including a yellow knit sweater she loves), and even has a little Jason Schwartzman action going on. All in all,…
