TARGET TARGETS THE CRÈME DE LA CRÈME
An Upcoming Collaboration with Neiman Marcus-featured Designers
(via WWD and NYMag):
Save your holiday shopping for December, when this collection will debut… Look for pieces from talents like Alice + Olivia, Diane von Furstenberg, Marc Jacobs, Rag & Bone, Tory Burch and Tracy Reese (to name just a few of the 24 CFDA members that Target and Neimans have announced). In our ‘crystal ball’ of fashion we see full-skirted party dresses from Alice + Olivia and Tracy Reese, sophisticated sheaths from DVF and Rag & Bone as well as decorative blouses from Marc Jacobs and Tory Burch… who knows what we’ll end up seeing and scooping up, either way we can’t wait!
OTHER COOL COLLABORATIONS:
-The Princess Vera Wang Collection is now available at Kohl’s! Browse for romantic separates that work from day into night for the back to school set.
-Color design house Manoush has teamed up with longtime carryall brand Lesportsac – look for it online soon! and learn more about each company’s designs and influences by clicking onto their names at left.
-There will also be an Anna Sui for Coach bag collection, which InStyle announced after Sui’s totes debuted at NY Fashion Week. In Coach stores this fall, the totes are solid accessory investments for all you bohemian and shoulder-toting chicks. We love seeing Sui’s unique touch on classic Americana – in this case she re-works the Coach leather to include embellished outside pockets and fringed handles.
-As most of our readers know, we’re suckers for all things Liberty of London… now we get a collaboration that no combat boot-stomping British Punk group could’ve anticipated… flowers on Doc Martens?! We think the Doc Martens x Liberty collaboration featuring Liberty florals printed onto the leather house’s boots and bags is a new classic!
-Opening Ceremony is proud to announce its new collection with Adidas, Adidas x Opening Ceremony. Think downtown bodycon pieces showcasing that iconic paisley motif in bold and some softer fall hues.
WE KNOW IT’S SUMMER… BUT WE CAN’T WAIT FOR FALL SHOES:
-Buzzed about retailer and fashion company Joe Fresh will have a fab collection of fall boots that we’ve seen in recent print ads.
-Boot company Hunter has a chic new style for fall that we just spotted in Teen Vogue.
