COLLABORATION STATION: Target Reveals Its Next Big Thing(s)
If you were impressed by the caliber of any of the designers who have paired with Target on capsule collections in the past, you’d probably better sit down. Target has just announced its latest designer pairing and it’s a doozy.
The beloved one-stop-shop is planning on partnering with 24 (TWENTY-FREAKIN’-FOUR!) CFDA designers and super-luxe department store Neiman Marcus. The plan is to create an uber-collection with which to take over the world — okay, not really, but they do plan to take over the holidays with a mass capsule collection that will be sold in both stores.
If it seems too good to be true, think again. These are the designers that have already signed on to be involved:
Alice + Olivia
Band of Outsiders
Diane von Furstenberg
Oscar de la Renta
Rag & Bone
WWD reports that each of the 24 designers will create between one and three pieces for this holiday fashion fête, with prices ranging between $7.99 to $499.99, and lest the later number gives you heart palps, WWD says most items will be under $60.
While the goods won’t appear on Neiman Marcus or Target shelves until Dec. 1st, Target has announced that it will reveal the collections (to include home décor, pet products, sporting goods, and more) in October — other than that, it’s all hush-hush.
