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 Target’s Mossimo brand and cost less than a hardcover book, a sushi dinner, and a date night at the movies. They are so cute and affordable that not buying them would be kind of silly. And you’re not silly are you? No. No you’re not. We’re not either. We’ll take one in each color.
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 …
On the other hand, the looks seem classic and basic, which is something you can always use, right? What do you think of the vibe? [Independent] Keep reading »
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.

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 »
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 »
