Those cheeky Target folk teased us over Twitter, but after much hype and anticipation, Target’s next big-name collaborator has officially been confirmed – and it’s none other than the fabulous Jason Wu.
The American-based designer hopes to have the same success as Target’s last collaborator, Missoni, although for the sake of Wu fans and Target’s webmasters, we hope it will be a little less frantic.
The launch date has been set for February 5th 2012, with prices ranging from $19.99 to $59.99. And although the transition to the high street means his clothes will reach a wider demographic, Wu is adamant that he won’t compromise on quality.
“It was very interesting for me to translate my signature touches into a more affordable collection without compromising quality, design and sophistication,” he told WWD.
“My collection for Target features 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.”
