I heart Target. I’ve been loving the featured designers and their collections at Target the past year or so. My wardrobe now includes some cute dresses by Proenza Schouler, an adorable jacket and slacks by Alice Temperley and a couple of great T-shirts by Erin Featherston. The quality definitely isn’t the same as buying their designer duds full price, but if you’re a one season love ‘em and leave ‘em after type of girl like me, these affordable designer lines are an absolute godsend.
My heart skipped a beat when my friend recently told me that Joy Gryson, once a director of design for Marc Jacobs, would be coming out with an accessories line for Target featuring, yes…handbags and possibly shoes! Now that she has her own successful label and designs that have been sported around town by celebs and plastered in magazines, Gryson is definitely an addition to the Target collaboration list that will set off another big shopping frenzy. The collection is going to be previewed next week in NYC and available in stores in 2008. You can guess where this eagle-eyed thrifty shopper is going to be when those bags first hit the floor!
