When Target asked me to save the date earlier this week, I had no idea what for. Never in a million years would I have guessed that I was putting February 23 aside for a one-day only Jason Wu for Target Pop-up Shop in Toronto.
And if that wasn’t enough to trigger my jaw to hit my laptop when the official invitation finally arrived, this little tidbit was: “Join award-winning fashion designer Jason Wu and Target executives for blah, blah, blah…” Wait. What? Jason Wu himself is going to be there? I think I might’ve fallen out of my chair at that moment.
Now that I’ve recovered somewhat, here’s the skinny on this fabulous pop-up shop coming to our fair city:
Date: Thursday, February 23, 2012
Doors open to public: Noon
Location: 363 King Street West, Toronto
Hosts: Designer Jason Wu and Tony Fisher and John Morioka of Target Canada
Note: Quantities limited. Purchase limit of 3 items per customer. All sales final.
I can’t imagine you do, but if you need a tiny bit of nudging to get yourselves to this one-day affair, here it is: all proceeds will be donated to United Way Toronto. So to recap: Jason Wu. At Target prices. For charity. See you there? I thought so.
By the way, prep yourselves by checking out the complete Jason Wu for Target lookbook here.

Counting down the days until Jason Wu for Target hits stores? The February 5 launch date is almost here, but in the meantime, let’s take a moment to be jealous of those lucky few who have already gotten their hands on the collection. Exhibit A: actress Chloë Moretz and her straight-out-of-the-lookbook ensemble from last night’s launch party in New York.
This 14-year old has proven to have some serious style cred. The ladylike bow blouse and pleated skirt Chloë donned are my favourite pieces in the collection. Even the lovely matching sandals, by Gianvito Rossi, are right up my bow-loving alley. I may be double her age, but I might just need Chloë’s look, from head to toe.

I’m currently working on narrowing down my wish list. What’s on yours?

In case you’re tempted to spend all the money Santa left you at the end-of-season designer sales, think again. That Jason Wu for Target collaboration we posted about back in October is now just around the corner, and a few lookbook and campaign images have been released. So far, the collection, which hits stores and online on February 5, is looking very promising indeed. And with nothing priced over $60, this is masstige at its finest.
Keep checking back for more photos of the collection over the next month. What do you think so far?

If you’re still trying to get over having missed out on the Missoni for Target collection, as many of us are, this piece of news should help you move on: the next designer to collaborate with Target is confirmed to be Jason Wu!
The collection, which will hit stores and online February 5, 2012, will feature “clothes and accessories that are easily convertible from day to evening — sophisticated, feminine dresses, mix-and-match separates and playful accessories all with a bit of charm and dressed-up attitude,” said Wu.
Price tags will range from $20 to $60 – rather reasonable prices to pay to get your hands on designs from the man who’s dressed the likes of Michelle Obama and Diane Kruger. ”My collection for Target embodies my signature aesthetic of feminine sophistication, with a mischievous nod to the 1960s,” Wu noted. “I’ve had an incredible experience partnering with Target, and I am looking forward to bringing these affordable designs to women across the country.”
Based on the one sketch alone, I’m already incredibly excited for this collaboration. Are you? Watch the preview video here to decide.

Now, not only has the first official image of the campaign been released, but several items from the collection have also popped up in the September issues of various fashion magazines. From clothing and accessories to housewares to bicycles (loving the zigzag patterned bike!), the limited edition Missoni for Target collection, which includes over 400 items, is bound to make Missoni fans in the U.S. very, very happy.
The exclusive collection will hit Target stores and Target.com on September 13th – mark your calendars, if you haven’t already! And watch this space for more sneak peeks.

Earlier this month, news broke of Target’s Fall 2011 collaboration with Missoni, and ever since then Target’s been working overtime to keep any further details, including photos from the preview, under wraps. Finally, though, photos from the collection’s campaign shoot in Milan, featuring Margherita Maccapani Missoni, have been leaked. We knew it would happen sooner or later – this isn’t the royal wedding dress or Tom Ford, after all – and we’re incredibly excited about what we see!
With just 7 photos we can already tell the 400-piece collection is going to be more fun than we ourselves had even imagined over the past month. No sign yet of the $599.99 patio set we’re dying to see, but we spot Missoni’s signature zigzag colourful stripes on several pieces of womenswear, menswear, scarves, shoes, luggage, stationary, a cellphone case and even bicycles! So far I have my eye on the men’s cardigans and tie for the Mister.
The collection will be available in stores and online from September 13 to October 22, 2011. What do you think of it so far?
