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?!

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 hell of a lot like TOMS shoes. As you might know, the majority of TOMS shoes are canvas or linen loafers with a distinctive straight cut.

Coincidence? I’m not sure. But TOMS loafers retail for about $44. Target’s knockoffs only retail for $16.99. Keep reading »

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 bathing suits/cover-ups will be donated to New York City’s Museo del Barrio, a museum devoted to Latin Americans culture in the city. Anyone who wants to nab an arty bikini can pick them up earlier than the rest of the country at Target’s new store in Harlem, NY starting July 25. Grab the red one-piece for me, please.

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 sounds like high fashion for four-month-olds. According to a company statement, “the pastel designs includes madras, stripes and printed ruffles suited specifically to babies and toddlers.” Cute? Or a sign of an impending designer diaper boom?

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 label that you might expect to rest on its high horse when it comes to anything “discount”-oriented. But the famed British leathergoods brand’s work with Target just might encourage other super high-fashion entities to do the same. In an ideal world … one day, we’d actually be able to afford Chanel. Fingers crossed. [Stylelist] Keep reading »

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 shoddy. But the minute I laid my eyes on the Cynthia Vincent for Target gladiator wedges, I knew they would be mine. Oh yes, I just had to have them! Keep reading »
