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 also announced that they’ll be re-creating “vintage” styles. This can sort of be seen as a type of eBay—except the prices aren’t any lower. They’re maybe even higher. Keep reading »

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 you feel you missed out on and will be happy to have a second go at? [Style] Keep reading »

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 (woh-wohhh). At the end of October, Australian Target will release a 42-piece collection, and here are some of the looks the lucky Aussies will get: sharp blazers, embroidered dresses, classy satin tops, and shimmery sweater dresses. If you’re vacationing in Australia, hit it up! (And bring us some, too.) Check out some more styles after the jump! [Frockwriter via Racked] Keep reading »

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 is such a wonderfully refined way to subtly play with silhouette that we decided to use one of his looks as inspiration for an outfit you can wear this season. A great thing about a look like this is all of the pieces are ones that can be worn in a myriad of ways. Plus, you probably have half of these garments in your closet already so it will be really easy to reproduce. Don’t like navy? Try this styling idea in browns or grays, using texture and opacity to create interest.

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 store armed with a video camera, a brass band, and rainbow umbrellas. Singing to the tune of Depeche Mode’s “People Are People,” the dread heads re-worded the song to “Target Ain’t People,” with lyrics like, “Target ain’t people so why should it be/allowed to play around with our democracy.” Peace, love, and viral video, man.

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 »

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). On September 12, Tucker for Target will hit stores, and here’s a first look at the collection. We see a slight ’60s back-to-school vibe with the dress and vest combo; something more sleek and ’70s-inspired with the belted pantsuit. What do you think—look like something you’d be into wearing? We’ll be interested to see the full collection once more images have been released! [Nitrolicious] 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.

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 definite service for Target consumers, and if Garcia is attempting to be the Anti-Wintour, she’s certainly on her way — can you imagine Anna even touching a Target tee?!
