It’s turning out to be a busy year for Target on the designer collaboration front. First Prabal Gurung, then Kate Young, and now? 3.1 Phillip Lim.
Yes, you read right: the popular New York-based contemporary designer (and one of our favourites!) has created a limited edition collection of men’s and women’s apparel and accessories for the discount department store chain. “Since an early age, I’ve been intrigued by the idea of design evolution,” Lim said in a press release. “One of the reasons I wanted to collaborate with Target is because I felt that together we could create a collection that would inspire – one that is modern and chic, but still very accessible.”
The travel-friendly line-up will feature over 100 items priced from $19.99 to $299.99. The collection will launch on September 15, and will be available in most Target locations in the US and Canada as well as on target.com. Check out the sneak peek video here and watch this space for more on 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target in the coming months!

Another week, another Target launch party attended by some very bold face names.
Last night, the likes of actresses Michelle Williams, Kate Mara and Maggie Gyllenhaal attended a bash in New York in honour of celebrity stylist Kate Young‘s design collaboration with the discount department store retailer. Each walked the red carpet in a look from the pocketbook-friendly eveningwear collection.
The offerings are looking rather cute, but that might be the Michelle Williams fan in me talking. Kate Young for Target launches online and in stores on April 14 – check out the complete lookbook here.

Target officially launched in Canada last week with the help of some very bold-face names. Sarah Jessica Parker, Blake Lively and even mascot Bullseye the dog were on hand at the new location at Shopper’s World Danforth to celebrate the discount department store chain’s arrival north of the border.
Decked out in spring florals, SJP and Lively were joined by actress Elisha Cuthbert, Olympic gold medalist Adam van Koeverden, rapper Kardinal Offishall and media personalities like Ben Mulroney, Dan Levy and Tracy Moore on the red carpet and in the checkout line. Because who can resist a bit of pocketbook-friendly retail therapy in a Target store?
As Target locations continue to roll out across the country, one is sure to pop up near you if it hasn’t already. In the meantime, check out the gallery below for 30 images from the Target Canada launch and start getting excited!

Target finally opened its first stores in Canada earlier this month, and now the discount retailer has given us another reason to cheer: their upcoming collaboration with celebrity stylist Kate Young will be available in Canada! With high profile clients like Michelle Williams, Diane Kruger and Natalie Portman, Young knows exactly what works on the red carpet, and has teamed up with Target on a line-up of evening wear and accessories for women.
The capsule collection, which hits Target stores and Target.com on April 14, will retail from $29.99 to $89.99 for apparel and $14.99 to $29.99 for jewelry and handbags (same pricing in Canada and the US!). Unfortunately, footwear will not be available in Canada, but the rest of the offerings should keep our pocketbooks plenty busy.
On my wish list so far? Definitely that tuxedo jumpsuit, at least. Check out the gallery below and start penning your own list!

Target‘s arrival in Canada is just around the corner, and if we weren’t already excited enough, last week’s media event in Toronto certainly got us there. With a figure skating fashion show as the main event, attendees got a sneak peek at the brands the discount retailer will be bringing to Canada when its first stores launch in just a few short months.
Celebrity guests including interior designer Nate Berkus, chef Giada De Laurentiis, beauty guru Sonia Kashuk, stylist to the stars Kate Young and even Target mascot Bullseye (definitely a bold-face name!) were on hand to give insiders a taste of the collections that will be coming north of the border. Target also announced its very first Canadian collaboration, the Roots Outfitters line of casual wear, with none other than Roots.
Can’t wait for Target to open its doors in a city near you? Check out the gallery below for event photos that will tide you over in the meantime.

The Prabal Gurung for Target lookbook has landed! The collaboration between the discount department store chain and the New York-based designer, who counts Duchess Kate and Jennifer Lawrence among his fans, was announced last October and the complete collection has now finally been revealed.
Inspired by love, the 80-piece line-up includes ladies’ apparel, shoes, handbags and jewelry priced from $19.99 for a t-shirt to $199.99 for a leather jacket. The collection will hit Target stores and target.com on February 10, 2012, just in time for Valentine’s Day. It will be available through to March 23, 2013.
I’m definitely going to be needing some of those floral print pieces in my life. Target won’t have opened up shop in Canada yet (soon!), so I’ll be making the trek south of the border to get my hands on some Prabal Gurung x Target. Will you? Check out the 42-image gallery below to get started on your wish list.

Last week we wholeheartedly rejoiced when we found out that Prabal Gurung x Target was happening, even though the announcement was accompanied only by a rather low resolution image. We knew it was going to be good, and now it’s confirmed! We’ve got a sneak peek of two dresses from the collaboration, which will be featured in the ad campaign that was shot this past weekend. How cute are they?
Mark your calendars if you haven’t already: the line-up will be available in Target stores and target.com from February 10, 2012 to March 23, 2013.

Prabal Gurung for Target? Yes please! Target has announced its latest designer collaboration with none other than New York-based designer Prabal Gurung, who was recently worn by Duchess Kate. If he’s good enough for Kate, he’s certainly good enough for me – especially at Target price points!
The 80-piece Target x Prabal Gurung collection will include ladies’ apparel and accessories priced from $19.99 for a t-shirt to $199.99 for a leather jacket. There’s only one image to go on so far, but the colourfully printed pieces look downright lovely. The line-up will hit Target stores and target.com on February 10, 2012 and will be available through to March 23, 2013.
My calendar is officially marked and I’m already really, really excited. You?

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!
