Neiman Marcus, Target and the CFDA announced a rather unexpected but definitely very intriguing holiday collaboration this past July, and now the 50-plus piece collection of men’s, women’s, home and children’s gift items has been revealed.
The offerings were designed by 24 CFDA designers, including: Alice + Olivia, Altuzarra, Band of Outsiders, Brian Atwood, Carolina Herrera, Derek Lam, Diane von Furstenberg, Eddie Borgo, Jason Wu, Judith Leiber, Lela Rose, Marchesa, Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, Philip Crangi, Prabal Gurung, Proenza Schouler, Rag & Bone, Robert Rodriguez, Rodarte, Skaist-Taylor, Thom Browne, Tory Burch and Tracy Reese.
The collection includes everything from Rodarte wrapping paper for $7.99 to Alice + Olivia bicycle for $499.99. I’m thinking a quick shopping jaunt south of the border might be required so I can get my hands on a Prabal Gurung bow cape ($79.99) for me, an Eddie Borgo letter opener ($34.99) for the Mister, and a Jason Wu polka dot dress ($59.99) for the daughter I’ve yet to have.
Mark your calendars – the collection will be available in both Neiman Marcus and Target stores and e-commerce sites (neimanmarcus.com ships to Canada!) starting December 1, and is sure to sell out in a flash. Check out the gallery below for the complete collection. What’s on your wish list?

By now we’re rather accustomed to hearing about unexpected collaborations (Valentino for GAP, anyone?), but Neiman Marcus x Target definitely takes the cake. The unlikely duo of retailers announced today the creation of a 50-plus piece collection of limited-edition men’s, women’s, home and children’s gift items by a roster of 24 CFDA members.
The list of designers who have created pieces for the collection is impressive: Alice + Olivia, Altuzarra, Band of Outsiders, Brian Atwood, Carolina Herrera, Derek Lam, Diane von Furstenberg, Eddie Borgo, Jason Wu, Judith Leiber, Lela Rose, Marchesa, Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, Philip Crangi, Prabal Gurung, Proenza Schouler, Rag & Bone, Robert Rodriguez, Rodarte, Skaist-Taylor, Thom Browne, Tory Burch and Tracy Reese.
Due to hit both retailers’ stores and online shops on December 1, the collection is priced from $7.99 to $499.99, with the majority of items under $60. Not having yet seen a single item, this is already sounding like the collaboration of the year. Prabal? Proenza? Atwood, even? I can’t wait to see what some of my favourite designers have cooked up for Neiman Marcus and Target. Stay tuned!

Canadian-born Joanna Hillman, Senior Fashion Market Editor at Harper’s Bazaar, brought vibrant punches of colour to the London Fashion Week scene recently via a pair of stunning, scarlet-hued accessories. Her Eddie Borgo silk tassel earrings and similarly bright, over-sized clutch gave her otherwise monochromatic ensemble some dramatic flair. The effect is both eye-catching and incredibly chic, and the outfit as a whole is right up my alley.
Hillman, by the way, has quite the repertoire of fabulous accessories; have you seen her closet? To die for. The Eddie Borgo tassel earrings are now on my Fall wish list; they’re available at Neiman Marcus for $315.

Last month CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund runner-up Prabal Gurung‘s capsule collection for J.Crew sold out in mere days, and now it’s fellow runner-up Eddie Borgo‘s turn. Borgo’s six-piece accessories collection for the retailer launches online today and is likely to sell out just as quickly as J.Crew’s last collaboration. Prices range from $38 for a studded bow brooch to $175 for a fringed mesh pocket necklace, much lower than the going rate for a Borgo piece, which can cost you up to $995.

I have no explanation for why I didn’t post these Eddie Borgo Fall 2010 campaign images the moment I saw them because they’ve been ingrained in my mind ever since. ‘Fierce’ does not begin to describe the pieces featured in the campaign, but Kate Lanphear in the shots? I have no words. The usual adjectives just seem grossly inadequate. All I know is that whatever Kate is selling, I’m buying. Shop the collection here.
