Joseph Altuzarra for Target Lookbook

September 14 will be the release of the next designer collaboration at Target stores and online. Joseph Altuzarra has gained experience by working with designers including Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler. He is a past winner of the Fashion Fund and just this year was awarded the CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year.

Forever21 Artist Series

Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat are among several artists whose work can be identified based on it’s uniqueness. The bright colors and various patterns have been seen all over the streets of New York where both of these artists were based.

The late Keith Haring has always been a favorite artist of mine. He was an advocate for gay rights and was open about his struggle with AIDs which eventually lead to his death at age 31.

Basquiat and Haring became friends through the artist scene and each began working with artists like Andy Warhol. Basquiat’s successful life sadly became enveloped by drugs. He passed away at age 27 due to overdose.

Forever 21 has created a new collection: the Artist Series which will be featuring the two popular artists Haring and Basquiat. The collection includes styles for both men and women including swimwear and pieces perfect for summer.

While this line is not due to be released until May 23rd, I just so happened to come across it early! The graphic designs and colors of every piece immediately caught my eye. I got my hands on nearly everything. All except for the one-piece swimsuit is cotton so even being from F21, the items should hold up fairly well. Prices range from just $8-$19 and be sure to ask for the military discount this Memorial Day weekend as well (it’s not advertised).

Alexander Wang for H&M

I am already planning my trip to the Orlando H&M, and November 6th can’t come soon enough… During the Coachella Music Fest in Cali, H&M announced the next designer they would be teaming up with: ALEXANDER WANG!

The American fashion designer and past winner of the Fashion Fund (2008), is very influential in the industry, creating designs that are show his edgy twist on basic peices. The NY-based designer’s work has been seen all over. He is the current creative director for Balenciaga.

The line, available 11/6, will be sold in over 250 stores worldwide as well as online and will feature designs for both men and women. I’m hoping I can save all my pennies by the time this comes out.

Peter Pilotto for Target Lookbook!

The Peter Pilotto for Target lookbook is finally here and I can already tell this line is my favorite to come! Full of mixed patterns and colors, the line offers something that is both chic and eclectic.

The line will hit Target stores as well as worldwide on Net-A-Porter February 9th of next year (so start saving).  Prices on nearly 70 items will range from $14.99 to $79.99 and will include women’s apparel, accessories, and swimwear.  Although no one knows for sure which pieces will be included in the spring collection, you can more than likely expect structured shapes and unique patterns as seen in past collections.

Many exciting announcements were made at this year’s NYFW.  One in particular was WWD’s news that Peter Som will be the next designer featured for Kohl’s DesigNation collection.  While previous designers have incorporated style from places like Paris (Catherine Malandrino) and Rio (Derek Lam), Som’s line will feature a St. Barth’s tropical feel. Prices for the collection will reach a high of $88 and be available next spring.

Impatiently Waiting… Isabel Marant x H&M

Ever since the announcement of Isabel Marant’s collaboration with H&M, things have been kept under tight wraps. With just under 2 months left until the release of the line, I can’t help but wonder what it will have to offer. Thanks to the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar (October), we can all have a small glimpse of what to expect on November 14.

Peter Pilotto x Target

Let me just start by saying how excited I was about the arrival of the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target line. With the most recent designer collaborations (Neiman Marcus and Kate Young) sitting on the racks and selling for well below retail, I wasn’t expecting future lines to do well. Obviously, people got word about the CFDA award winning designer Phillip Lim, and were lining up outside of Target stores well before opening just to get their hands on his simple, yet stylist creations. (Not all of us were as lucky as the residents of Duluth, GA who got the line early)

Before you can even finish getting all the things on your 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target wish list, Target has already announced their next collaboration with British designer Peter Pilotto.
