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 shapes and… READ MORE »

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 the idea… READ MORE »

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 ends… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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.

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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 Yigal Azrouël-designed… READ MORE »

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 psyched. READ MORE »

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 bring her cheery brand… READ MORE »

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? … READ MORE »

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 collection will… READ MORE »

I stopped by the Target in Brooklyn on my way home last night and was surprised to see almost the entire Anya Hindmarch line of bags, because they aren’t supposed to be in stores until October 12.

I’m not really a flats kind of girl, but these are so chic that I would forgo an extra four inches of height. Purple patent is such an unexpected color for a shoe, but is right on trend for the season. Plus the zipper detail adds a little sumthin’, sumthin’. These would look so hot… READ MORE »
