Jason Wu for Target
Via Racked.com, Wu’s collection of feminine dresses, handbags, and separates gives good look book, so to speak. Our hopes are high, following the hit-and-miss results of Target’s recent team-ups. (Missoni? Huge hit. Calypso St. Barth? Not so much.)
Including both bold primary stripes and demure floral patterns, as well as basic black and white, prices for the clothing items range from under $30 to about $60. Accessories include handbags, canvas totes, and scarves, starting at $19.99.
While we don’t anticipate a crazed, Missoni-style run on this collection, we’d still recommend setting an alarm and clicking or visiting as early on launch day as possible.
Marni for H&M
The brand follows fellow Italian line Versace in designing for H&M, though its lower-profile image will likely mean less of a frenzy for the merchandise.
The collection will include apparel for both men and women, featuring Marni’s signature flair for prints. Promising both African-inspired motifs and color-blocking for mixing or matching, the range will also include jewelry, shoes, bags, and scarves. Finally, a unisex Marni-designed t-shirt, through which funds will be raised for earthquake relief in Japan via the Red Cross, will add a feel-good component to the mix.
We’ll keep you updated on North Texas availability details, as they develop.
