I think I’d like to list some of the things that I’m very excited about for this month of January. I mean, a lot of things interest me, but there are a few things that I will probably follow up on in the weeks to come because they’ve peaked my excitement. Here are a few of the [random] things for January that have me wound up:
My experience with Target Designer collaborations has been in flux. One I was extremely excited for: Mulberry + Target was a huge let down in my opinion and the opinion of a few bloggers that I follow. However, I know the Missoni + Target collab shut down the retail giant’s website and cleared the shelves in store. I’m optimistic that the Jason Wu + Target collaboration will have the same effect, since the collection’s Lookbook has me all antsy.
My go-to for fashion news, Fashionising says the following of the collection:
“As far as designer / high street collaborations go, Jason Wu for Target is a winner. The 2012 collection is prim without being stuffy, ladylike with a flare of 1960s retro-chic, yet basic enough to come with the promise of wearability. There’s little to fault in the vintage-inspired prints, full pleated skirts, and straight-cut minidresses.
The accessories have a similar appeal to the clothes: woven handbags and kitty-print scarves are the kind that would add a dollop of retro sweetness to the simplest of outfits.”
Word is that the prices will range from $19.99 to $59.99 which is amazing considering the aesthetic of this collection. Here are a few of my favourite looks and items:
I’m hoping to be able to grab a few things on the website…though that didn’t go so well the last time I tried with Mulberry. Check out the whole collection here.
