Cheapskate: Target

Target was one of the first mega-retail chains to commit to selling affordable clothing and accessories alongside essentials like detergent, cosmetics, and food. Basically, it's a one-stop shopping destination for recessionistas who aren't willing to sacrifice style when on a budget. I've never seen any fashion item priced above $100, so you don't…

Sneak Preview: Rodarte for Target!

No, these are not Halloween costumes. They're actually pieces from the upcoming and greatly anticipated Rodarte line for Target. Yes, images are finally leaking of the new line, which editors have already previewed, but were banned from sharing with their readers. Along with the sequined skull dress (far right), the ultra "it" designer…

Anna Sui For Target/Gossip Girl Is A Mixed (But Mostly Cute) Bag

The day you've all been waiting for is imminent: Anna Sui's "Gossip Girl"-inspired line for Target is available to the public this Sunday. We weaseled our way into a sneak preview this week though, and we've got the lowdown on how the collection looks in real life. As is to be…

Sneak Peek: Anna Sheffield For Target

Another day, another Target collaboration. Here's a first look at Anna Sheffield's (of Bing Bang accessories fame) jewelry collection designed for the fashionable retail giant. In the mix: necklaces with vintage-inspired cameo pendants and insignia charms with Victorian touches like ribbon strands. The earrings recall Sheffield's signature style with draped chains of mixed shape…

OMFG: Rodarte To Design For Target

Rodarte is designing a line for Target's Go International project, allowing us to die happy after purchasing, well, everything the day it's available on December 20. Because, really, what else is there to live for once you've filled your closet with Rodarte for $60 instead of $4,000? We'd sort of resigned ourselves to…

Is Target The New Barnes And Noble?

Target is turning many books from flops into best-sellers. Each month, a panel of employees gets together and chooses some books, often from little-known authors, to be a Target "Bookmarked Club Pick." The books that are chosen are published in special Target editions, and the prices are slashed. The books are put on the end…

Target Execs Not So Into Anna Sui’s “Gossip Girl” Inspired Line

So apparently execs over at Target had an opportunity for The Blessed Ones--Serena and Blair, of course-- to wear Anna Sui's "Gossip Girl" inspired Target clothing line on the show, and they turned it down because the teen drama may be a little too racy for their tastes. In fact, they're shying away from the…

Don't bother denying it, you've been trying to dress like Blair and Serena for months now. Well, your days of attempting to make $50 dresses look like Chanel are over, courtesy of Anna Sui.

Crave: Navy Patent Pumps

We are suckers for patent round toe pumps. They go with everything and are perfect for work and play. Black, on the other hand, does not always go with everything and can get rather boring anyway. That's why these navy patent pumps are perfect for those days when you need an alternative neutral to compliment…

WTF?!: Target Misses With Alexander McQueen

In the past, Target has worked women into a frenzy by having high-end designers make affordable fashions for us po’, fat, regular folk. Isaac Mizrahi made Target chic with his classic cuts; Rogan Gregory created an uproar with his animal print fabulousness; Luella Bartletley made us want to wear puffed up party dresses again; and…

Style Buzz: Britney Spears For Candie’s, Tom Cruise Sues Over Tee Shirts, Another Target Line

Britney Spears has done something that actually makes sense: she's the new spokeswoman for sexy/trashy brand Candie's, sold at Kohl's. [WWD] Sarah Jessica Parker said she regrets wearing a black wedding dress when she wed Matthew Broderick in 1997 and would do things differently today: "(I would) white it up. I'd wear a…

Planned Parenthood Is The New Target When It Comes To Designer Collaborations

Up-and-coming designers doing collaborations with Target is becoming too predictable a path to success. Instead, an alternate way to gain name recognition and visibility is to design a line of condoms. Yes, that's right, designer condoms. Marc Jacobs designed a rubber wrapper on his own, and then last September, Planned Parenthood released a…

Designer Collaborations Are Only A Good Thing When Done Right

JCPenney's collaboration with designer Charlotte Ronson, I Heart Ronson, just came out, but I'm not going to buy anything from it. In fact, I'm getting a little sick of designers collaborating with big retailers. When Target first began doing its Go International designer collaborations back in 2006 with Luella Bartley, I was beyond…

Orla Kiely To Design Line For Target

Sure, we said we were totally over designer collaborations with mass-market retailers, but every one in a while there will be one that makes us want to run, not walk, to Target. This is one of them. British designer Orla Kiely, who makes delightfully colorful clothes, accessories, and home goods, will…

Poll: Will You Brave The After-Christmas Crowds For Thakoon’s Target Collection?

Designer Thakoon Panchgul's GO International Collection for Target hits stores Dec. 28, mere days after Christmas. The clothes are cute, if a bit summery, but are you going to be all shopped out and in no mood to fight angry women for a strappy dress in the middle of winter?

Poll: Which Pricey Designer Do You Wish Had A Target Line?

The first photos of Alexander McQueen's McQ Alexander McQueen for Target line surfaced today on WWD, and we are not impressed. The clothes in the two photos look more like they came from American Apparel than from one of the most noteworthy fashion designers of our time. Perhaps the other pieces in the…

The Daily Squeeze: Bond Vs. Bourne, Second Life Sex, And Hayden-Harnett For Target

The one thing James Bond can't do? Beat Jason Bourne at the U.S. box office. The last two Jason Bourne movies have made more money in the U.S. than any James Bond movie. [E Online] Were you wondering how avatars have sex in Second Life? Well, first, you have to buy genitals... […

The Daily Squeeze: Michelle Obama’s Election Day Dress, The Lob, And Target’s New Designer

The dress Michelle Obama wore last night was from Narciso Rodriguez's Spring 2009 collection (see look #39). Personally, I think Michelle should have braved the cold and gone sans cardigan -- it sort of ruined the dress's lines -- but she still looked lovely! [WSJ] The eighth annual World Toilet Summit…

If Sarah Palin Shopped For Her Campaign Clothes At Walmart…

Politico reported that the Republican National Committee has spent more than $150,000 on clothes and accessories for Sarah Palin and her family since she became the party's vice presidential candidate in late August. This handsome allowance included spending sprees worth $49,425.75 at Saks Fifth Avenue, $75,062.63 at Neiman Marcus, and $4716.40 on hair…
