HtCC: Jason Wu for Target

I feel like I say this on the blog every time I do one of these sort of posts – but designer collaborations are something which I usually feel quite blah about. The quality, the style – most of the time, they don’t feel like they do the designer any good. Which is strange, because of all the collaborative pieces I own, theres only one brand that I felt did badly – Mulberry for Target.

Which is why I present this post with a little amount of reservation. Jason Wu is a designer not much older than many of you reading this, and is known for the many outfits Michelle Obama had worn. I think that all of these elements are why Target have done a collaboration with him. It’s a gorgeously springy type collection, which, quite honestly, I’m annoyed we never get anything this cute in stores.

According to various news stories, the opening day saw hundreds of people queueing up early – its strange how news stories act as if its totally normal to queue for hours for the latest Apple product, but queuing for fashion? Bitches be crazy, yo.

Alex is in Boston at the start of next week, so I’m hoping I can place an order so he can bring it back with him…take a bigger suitcase, darling, I need dresses!

You can see the rest of the collection over at target.com but you’ll have to find your own dress mule ;)

    We have a target 10 minutes away, and everytime there’s something like this, I ALWAYS MISS OUT ON WAITING IN LINE. It really does suck, but eye candy’s always good. And I agree, Mulberry for Target was far too disappointing.

    Ah, some of these pieces really seem worthwhile buying! I love the first get-up in the second pic :)

    I like the preppy looks at the top – last time I was in the US was a couple of years ago when Anna Sui did a Target collaboration – I ended up with a really funky blue dress that looks like a painters smock – not typical Anna Sui but a very unique print.

    I like that this is actually affordable – Mary Katzantrou for Toshop dresses are going to be around £350 – still way out of most of our leagues.
